Could you give me some hint to fix my website with + 600 pages but
only 1 page indexed in Google? I have noticed that the page indexing rate was
decreasing continuously until today when reached the only indexed page.
I am using Google webmaster tools with geolocation setup (for the
UK) and a xml sitemap. (Google says that the Sitemap was correctly downloaded
but only one page is indexed) . Screenshot here:http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/1787/xmlsitemaponly1pageinde.jpg
The website it is well indexed in Yahoo and Bing but I don’t know why Google
refuse to index it.
I have suspicions on these factors for the no indexing:
I think that maybe using Google webmaster tool doesn’t help at
all, It is much better to leave the website “as is”
Submitting the Sitemap XML creates an error on the Google crawler. I
don’t use the name “sitemap.xml” on the sitemap. Could this make an error?
Website speed could be slow for Google? It takes 3.1 seconds to
download the home page.
Did someone fixed this kind of Google behaviour in his website?
