No Longer Showing On Google?


Recommended Posts

Until last week my website was showing at the first page on google search for a few searcher. This is no loger the case, and when looking those same words again my website is nowhere to be found :(

I try searching site:http://menutabg.com and it shows all my pages, so they are indexed.

 

The only thing I've done recently is that I've changed the permalinks to my pages, and re-submited a sitemap to webmaster tools.

I'm really stumped by this, and dont know why it happened or how to fix it?

 

My website is http://menutabg.com, sitemap is http://menutabg.com/sitemap.xml

 

Thanks

Ivo

 

EDIT/RESOLVED

Problem is resolved!

When I changed the permalinks I also had to set up 301 redirects - https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93633?hl=en

from the old links to the new ones, otherwise Google's indexed pages kept directing to a 404 error

So untill new indexes were created I was basically invisible to search!

Hi Ivo, Just by any chance do you have an account with Google? This could be an Gmail, plus and or places account. Many people forget that search engines keep a record of all your search queries to better display results for your next similar search that matches previous queries.

 

This means if you were logged into any Google services while searching for (ex. Pizza), and you clicked on a website. The next time you search "Pizza" Google will display the site you clicked on last time on the top search result.

 

If you do have a Google account, try logging in and re-conducting your search. See if it changes anything.

 

If this does not work then try re-submitting your sitemap and forcing a fetch pages and all linked urls on your home page. Google will allow you to resubmit your site and index it.

 

Changing your permalinks on WordPress should not affect the indexing. WordPress should still redirect the old links but, if your sitemap dropped the old url's then you may want to go back to displaying them on the sitemap.xml file.

 

I attached a woorank report for you to review. I know there are a million SEO reports out there but I like this one the best. Check it out.

Hi pvader,

thank you for your reply and the woorank report, it definetly gave me a few new ideas.

I've tried searching with and without being logged in my google account. The fact is a week ago, when looking up the terms "папки за меню", "папка меню" the website used to show up on the first page of search. I've tried it on multiple computers then.

Now it doesnt :( I'm sure I must've done something and wonder what it could have been and if it is reversable?

In the mean time I've resubmited the sitemap as you suggested, and I'm waiting to see if that leads to any results.

 

Thanks again for your help :)

No problemo... Glad it was worth your while. Another thing to add is using redirects for your old pages. If Google cannot find them then simply recreate them and redirect them to the new permalink. I was a little tired yesterday when I wrote that last post. It was 4am here in CA. Also read my response in this post for more insight. -> http://www.killersites.com/community/index.php?/topic/17518-alexa-ranking/page__pid__46113#entry46113
