Google only indexes my homepage (4 posts)

    I have searched and read all of the Google problems on the forum, but none seem to fix the problem I am having.

    I have only made two changes to my site recently: 1. I changed the theme 2. I changed the structure of the permalinks removing the "index.php"

    Then, it seems, google stopped indexing the entire site -- up to that point it indexed very quickly. I changed the permalinks back to the way they were and changed the theme back and forth.

    Anyone have any thoughts on what could be going on here?

    The more times you change your permalinks the slower they will index it. After any change be a little bit patient until the new structure "kicks in"...

  3. You'll need to give Google 2-4 weeks before your full site is index. To speed the process a little bit, run this plugin: http://scott.yang.id.au/2005/05/permalink-redirect/

    Also, read through this article: http://codex.wordpress.org/Search_Engine_Optimization_for_Wordpress

    And, as Moshu said, "The more times you change your permalinks the slower they will index it."
