I launched a new site about 10 days ago.
first 1-2 days, I selected the option Settings>Reading>Search Engine Visibility>Discourage search engines from indexing this site
I didn't want Google to crawl the site prematurely.
That was un-checked about 8 days ago.
Since then Google has already indexed about 700 pages, however....none of them are showing in search results...including a search for my OWN domain name...
for 20 years...never seen this before...
So here is my question:
when the option "discourage search engines from indexing this site" is checked, is there a TIME element attached....for example....don't index, come back in 30 days and check again....?
or once this is un-checked, it "kicks in" right away on the next crawl, as Google visits my site several times a day.
Can you think of any other reason related to Classipress why Google will index hundreds of pages, but NEVER show them....?
