It took a long time, but I am finally indexed in Google, and getting traffic from there! My site has been up for over half a year, and up till now I have gotten no traffic from Google. A few weeks ago, my home page showed up in Google, but I still wasn’t getting traffic. Starting this morning about 1:30am EST, I started getting traffic from the Big G. I looked and found I now have 35 pages indexed there. Only a fraction of my total pages, but better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick!
I have really been playing with SEO techniques, trying to get my pages indexed in GOOG. Permalinks, Google Sitemap, adding Keywords and Description meta tags, playing with the themes. And when I found out my domain name had been previously own by a spam site, I submitted a re-inclusion request to Google in case the domain name had been blacklisted. I think all of this stuff finally paid off! My Old School theme implements the keywords and description stuff. Download it here.
