Is there a specific criteria based on which search engines index/not index your site/blog?

If my whole blog (2/3 pages-10-20 posts) is not indexed(WordPress), what can I do?

My blog has is not indexed by Google/Bing. Any suggestions.

  • Try setting up your website on google.com/webmasters/tools - you'll figure it out in no time. Jul 7 '13 at 18:26
  • Do you have any plugins installed that might effect this? Can you post your URL?

    We don't deal with wordpress.com support issues here, if this even has anything to do with WordPress at all. Sorry. But your robots.txt looks OK.

This is a bit of a guess but there is a setting in the backend that will discourage indexing.

Make sure that is not checked.

  • Sadly no! But yes, it had to be guessed.
