Is Your Blog Getting Crawled By The Search Engines?
 
If you recently had a WordPress blog added to your site (version 2.8 +) the new default privacy setting is set to block the SE's. Heck even if you have an older WP blog it doesn't hurt to check the privacy settings.

In newer versions of WP with the menu on the left of the dashboard go to Settings, Privacy and make sure this option is checked: "I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Sphere, Technorati) and archivers".

If your WP dashboard has the menu items across the top, well man that is old so...Upgrade It! Sorry but my memory is not that good but it should be under a settings menu somwhere.

Thanks for the heads-up, Houdy.

This is something that all of us would want to be aware of as this can have a huge, negative impact on our business.
