Not in Google on Local search

by pollini 20 replies
Hi Guys

Im struggling with my new site, Im trying to find new way to earn some money, and doing in my free time some websites.

I usually did good with google positioning, but with this site not.

Actually doesnt even appear in the main keyword search on google. It exist cause some other pages work.

Im worried I over optimized it.

I added the site to google webmaster tools
I added the site to "submit url" of google
I added the sitemap
I did google+ page and even got the post card.
I addes some schemas
I used good Seo template "small biz " wordpress
I added to some pr 6 directory but didnt get listed yet anyway.
I'm using, CDN, Siteground Cache, w3tc wordpress plugin.
Gt Metrix says 96% and 92 % so its not slow at all


Google Webmaster Tools

The only problem that I see with my eyes, in Google Webmaster Tools

"Google couldn't crawl your site because we were unable to access your site's robots.txt file"

So I changed robots txt to :

User-agent: *
Disallow: /wp-admin/
Disallow: /wp-includes/

But still, even after I did again "fetch as google" the crawler still stuck and didnt update the file from 6 days ago.

But other pages get indexed even 2nd on google on local search.

I dont know how it work here, can I post my website or its spam ? namewebsite dot it its allowed ?

Thanks a lot for help!

    Well, did you do something to optimize it? You've listed some fairly minor technical stuff, but not really any SEO work apart from one small attempt at link building.

    So apparently it's working as intended. You aren't guaranteed to rank on any particular keyword.

    Ok, first of all, paste your naked url meaning domain.com.tld onto google.com search bar. If your website does not appear on page 1 of the search results, your website is most likely de-indexed (unless it has never been indexed before).

    I can help you further once you confirm the above point first.

        Surprisingly touch competition for that kind of a phrase.

        The main problem here is that you're being too impatient. Your domain was only registered on 5th of this month, and I can only see backlinks from two sites. At this point SEO might not be a good strategy for you.

        It sounds to me that you're going to the right direction. Please try to take the "naysayers" views in account. There's quite a lot of bad advice and weird beliefs on WF, and internet marketer circles in general.

          Yes I know its new and still a lot to do, but what worries me its :

          4-5 pages of google are about same company as mine, then there's airport site, bank sites, football team, basket team etc. basically any site appear appear except mine.

          Im asking cause in another site of mine, Im first in whole italy instead of Local Town and I got also some competition there. So I thought I ****ed it up here.

          I checked first 39th PAGES on google, and still I dont appear. Any Clue ?

          thanks!

            They have backlinks, you do not. It's a popularity contest of sorts. Google's algorithm regard them as more relevant than yours because nobody has noticed your site yet.

            I know, backlink building is the hardest thing in SEO. There's some good advice on this forum occasionally, but keep in mind that "social signals", "social bookmarking" and the like aren't really that effective.

            Do you have partner companies, or are you a member in any industry associations? That kind of "real" links are often fairly good.

    Other than backlinks + social media signals as nettiapina has mentioned, if your domain was registered on the 5th of this month, there is a possibility that your website is still in the sandbox. You can't rank so quickly because of that particular Google algorithm. Just keep up your SEO efforts and after 1-2 months you should see steady results (assuming you do white hat SEO at high intensity)

      No, I don't believe in social signals. Please don't put words in my mouth. There's no good evidence that Google uses them.

          Nothing will change until you do SEO. That list you posted isn't doing anything to rank a page. Reading this thread, you having done a bit of SEO.

          Social has nothing to do with ranking pages on Google SERPs. If anyone tells you it does, ignore them, they're clueless.

      You are a walking SEO disaster. No doubt about that. In fact, I could
      not finish the first sentence without losing it in hysterical laughter.

      Sometimes a robots.txt crawler error is a server issue. That message usually
      means that they can't access the site, period, not just robots.txt. They try
      for robots.txt first, if they can go no further, they give up and send a message
      about that page. But it only means they gave up, not necessarily that they could
      not crawl it because of a robots.txt issue.

      You don't even need a robots.txt page.

      Anyway, looks like it was crawled yesterday.

      Of course I can't help but notice you are offering SEO services and

        Yes im not probally the best choice on the market :-) Im trying my best to learn since its my only chance to make a profit with something =(

        thanks for the help

          It's usually much easier to start from an established site because they've already got backlinks and some level of visibility. Ironing out the small bugs, and publishing some decent content might be enough to get nice and fairly immediate boost.

    Don't worry about social signals as others have already mentioned. They won't help your SEO efforts.

    Try adding some content and getting some good backlinks pointing to your website.

    For a new site it is difficult to rank good, but it is possible to slowly boost up rankings by solving the on page issues and building a strong influence through social media.
