For Some reason, Google is only caching my home page. If I search for anything on my site, it only brings up the content on my home page or in my forums. All the linked articles and news etc... are not cached. What can I do to get google to cache the other pages of my site?

If the site your talking about is the one in your signature -

http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=n ... ters%2Ecom

Notice how the only two pages in Googles index are your main frameset and your forum (which doesn't use frames)

This is the result of making your web site with frames....

My site does not use frames. Just tables and style sheets. Any other theories?

Sorry - My bad.

How long has your site been live? No alexa data so im guessing not all that long.

The best way to get google to visit your inner pages would be to point a few links at them. Google would get around to it in the end anyway - but no harm in giving it a helping hand.

just check your server logs from the time you started your domain. Do you see bot activity on the other pages besides the homepage? Are other bots getting there like yahoo?

make sure you are using text links and not image rollover links.

I doubt if this is the problem, but do you have a robots.txt file that is blocking the other pages?

yeah the image rollovers on your left margin could be causing a problem. You can use CSS to do the same thing and it's more efficient and the spiders like it a lot better. IF you don't want to redesign it, then add text links in your footer at the very least and/or a text link to a sitemap with text links to all your pages.

I agree with what Jess has said, point a few links to them and they will soon be cached by google.

Well, I went ahead and made a site map linked to the home page. Hopefully that will help.
