In order to keep this blog running at optimal performance, I dedicate my weekends to performing routine site maintenance. This includes checking whether or not Google properly indexes all of my blog’s pages.
To my astonishment, 79% of my pages list in Google’s supplemental index. Google stores either duplicate or less significant web pages in the supplemental index, instead of placing them in the normal index.
How Do I Check My Blog’s Index Statistics?
Use the Supplemental index tool over at Seologs.com.
How Do I Get my pages back into Google’s Index?
Download the WordPress SEO cure plugin.
Extra Safety: Upload a Good Robots.txt File
To insure Google crawls and blocks specific files within your website/blog, make sure to upload a good robots.txt file. Not so Boring Life wrote a good post on getting your blog out of the supplemental index.
