Blog not being indexed (3 posts)

    About four months ag9o, my blog used to be the first result in Google. But then it just disappeared. I've done anything and everything to see if I meet the guidelines but haven't been able to figure out the cause. I have also submitted a sitemap and have a robots.txt as well, but the blog just doesn't show up not even once in the google index.

    I would really appreciate if anyone could visit it and see if you are able to figure out the source of the problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    There's probably nothing wrong. Google cycles in an out of old indexes all the time, and so a new site will appear and vanish again for a while. It takes a while for things to settle down.

    It sounds like you've already signed up for Google's Webmaster Tools. That should give you some information.

    thjnks. I thought it shouldn't take more than 3-4 months for google to inderx my blog. I have been using Webmaster Central for almost six months now.

    I am adding some more info, maybe that will help you get more insight:

    About four months ago, my blog was the first result in Google if I
    searched using my name. But then it just disappeared. I've done
    anything and everything to see if I meet the guidelines but haven't
    been able to figure out the cause.

    a. I have also submitted a sitemap, the link is http://manukhanna.com/sitemap.xml

    b. The robots.txt is available here http://manukhanna.com/robots.txt

    c.This is what I have in my .htaccess file:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.manukhanna\.com$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://manukhanna.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    thanks a lot.
