I have launched a new company website, when I was setting up the wordpress install locally I believe I clicked 'do not allow search engines to index this site' despite only developing offline. Now I have taken it all online, and updated to 4.3 there is not option to allow indexing, anywhere in the settings page. There is only a radio button to 'discourage', but nothing to positively allow indexing.
Im pretty miffed about this, and now I'm worrying that the page won't be indexed and we will lose business, because the domain was used on a previous website that gets good traffic and is listed on google, but I'm thinking that the index will expire soon if wordpress is set to refuse google to index the pages?
Many Thanks in advance,
