Lately, I’ve run into a common issue with client sites that I’ve worked on for SEO purposes. Taking steps to resolve this issue has resulted in big dividends (traffic-wise) and I wanted to share the issue and the solution with you.
The issue was that the major search engines were not listing all of the pages of our clients. This is one of the first things we look at with a new client. Taking steps to make sure Google, Yahoo and Bing can see all of your pages can help increase traffic dramatically.
In the video below, I show you how to check whether or not the search engines can see your website. I take a look at BigLots.com and see where they stand as far as pages listed (or indexed) in the major search engines.
