Google indexing just index.php (4 posts)

    I've read in these forums how google takes time to index the rest of the pages of the blog, so I'm being patient. But a casual check on the feed and I saw this tag in front of each blog post title

    <guid isPermaLink="false">

    What does this mean? Should it be "true". I have the permalink feature in the admin panel to "on" have the meta tags for robots turned to "all". Just wanna make sure I ain't doing anything wrong here. Any advise/re-assurances would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

    What you're looking at there is the RSS2 <guid> element, the unique identifier for an item in a syndication feed, and its isPermaLink attribute defines whether the guid should be considered (merely for comparison purposes) as an url or a string.

    It has no effect on how, or how fast, a search engine would index your site.

    You might want to think about submitting a google sitemap to help the googlebot index your site. Luckily there's a nice WordPress plugin to make that very easy for you :)
