Site description not showing up on Google
I created a WordPress blog at http://solace.reiku.org. When I searched for the site on Google, it showed up like this:
solace.reiku.org/ – Similar pages – Note this
Also, I created an account on Google Webmaster Tools to see what the Google web crawl sees and it says “URLs restricted by robots.txt(1) http://solace.reiku.org/“. I don’t have a robots.txt page on my web site though so robots.txt couldn’t possibly block out my site right?
No description shows up when I search my site no matter what the search words are. Is there something wrong?
and have none of these issues.
it’s set to “I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Sphere, Technorati) and archivers”
@itissue, did you ever get this resolved? I’m having the same problem:
Hello. I didn’t have this problem with my first site http://best-mangosteen-juice.com/blog/ using WP2.5. The site description appears fine on the brower.
However with my newly set up site http://savvyhomemaker2u.com/ using WP2.6 the description just wouldn’t appear. Only the site name appeared.
Can someone help? Thanks.
itissue, try creating a robots.txt file.. place it in the site root. in it copy and paste the following..
User-agent: * Disallow:
This should tell the all the engines that all pages are accessible.. and should help your webmaster tools panel update. Once the bots start crawling your site your descriptions should hopefully appear as the bots index the content they should be formulating the descriptions or pulling from your head content.
once you upload the robots.txt file you probably want to resubmit your XML sitemap
