I have been running wordpress for a number of years. Recently I launched a new website: http://mikeandtomphoto.com. For some reason the website is not ranking at all in google.
In the past I have had considerable using the Yoast WordPress plugin to help my site however this has always been to target keywords and improve my all round seo. For example destination wedding photographers for the website mikeandtomphoto.com.
With my new website, the site doesn't seem to be ranking at all, not even if you type in mike and tom photo. Something that in the past I havent needed to do any seo on as it just appears after a few weeks. The site is available on google if you type in http://mikeandtomphoto.com or site:mikeandtomphoto.com. It also appears in yahoo and bing with no problems.
I have completed the standard google protocols when submitting a site, url submission, sitemaps, verification, google anayltics etc etc. But have had no joy what so ever. In the past the website has appeared after a few weeks if it only had a simple holding page with little more than than i single image on. I have also checked that google hasn't blacklisted and it all seems good.
I understand the page currently has no back links which is a crucial factor in general seo but as i mentioned before, previously i have had a site with nothing more than a holding page go top, the domains didn't have a particularly unique domain either.
I guess that this is probably the wrong forum but I didn't particularly know where else to look. I have posted on google forums with no joy. I also apologise if there is a dedicated topic for this sort of thing, if there is, just forward me onto the relevant topic and i will delete and remove this post.
Hope someone can be of help.
