Is Google Indexing your Site Properly?

One of the most common occurrences with SEO mistakes often lies within search engine indexing your site. Indexing issues can limit the # of pages your site allows Google to access and in turn could hypothetically hurt your long term content and SEO strategy.  To make sure your site is getting correctly crawled by the Search bots login to webmaster tool and click on the index tab. What you want to see after you click on this is a high # of indexed pages, which tells you Goggle doesn’t have any problems getting around your website.

If you are seeing a lower # of indexed pages then are on your site you may have a bigger issue. The first recommendation we have is click on the Crawl tab then “Crawl Errors”. This can help you identify any crawling errors on your site.

The Crawl Errors page provides details about the URLs that Google could not successfully crawl or that returned an HTTP error code.
