I am currently having a problem with my wordpress site not being found or ranked correctly on Google and some other search engines. I had, for several years a site called http://www.thegulfmusic.com which was ranked quite high on search engines when people typed in "The Gulf band" or "The Gulf boston" or a number of other search terms. Ever since I remade my site with wordpress, my rankings have plummeted and in some cases disappeared.
I know that my site's URL has somehow changed and is now thegulfmusic.com, instead of http://www.thegulfmusic.com. Could it be this missing "www" that is causing this issue?
I have all the necessary metatags, a good title, etc, for this to be ranked decently, as well and a lot of content and a good number of links pointing to the site. But I believe the outside links are pointing to http://WWW.thegulfmusic.com, not thegulfmusic.com. Could this be the problem?
