One of the easiest ways to get more leads is to add more (high-quality) pages to your site. One question that is increasingly common from small business owners who have embraced the “more website pages equals more leads” philosophy is, “how come Google isn’t indexing all of the pages listed in my sitemap?” (note: if you don’t know what a sitemap is, contact us or sign up for one of our SEO Seminars!)
So, why doesn’t Google index all of the pages listed in your sitemap?
We found this video of Matt Cutts explaining why Google indexes some URLs and not others:
Get more of your webpages indexed by:
Including relevant text (keywords) in each of your website’s pages
Increasing your website’s authority by getting more links from authoritative sites
Making your Web pages easy for Google to find—including them in an XML sitemap helps (but doesn’t guarantee indexing)
Submiting your sitemaps to webmaster tools sites
Focusing on creating and distributing remarkable content (makes getting links easier)
