I'd say a good couple of months... should i just wait it out? I took out session id's on PHPBB so maybe my topics will index.

Thanks

I am not an expert, but
- mod_rewrite can help you (makes your inner pages like here [Dead Link]


Also you haven't robots.txt ...

dont put anything other than "description" and "keywords" in yr meta tags.
i dont see the seo pros doing it.

when did you take out the session IDs ? must have been fairly recent?

I would take these out.... I think it will help you beasue this pretty much tells google not to cache your links...what I would beleive to be a bad things..

Correct me if I am wrong guys...then you need to be re-spidered for google to see you...and some back links would help...try an email campaign, working the webmasters of sites that are close to the same subject as your own.

sounds right on...except I think the noindex refers to the page not the links...the nofollow directive keeps the links from being followed.

You can always try typing your URL in google, i.e. http://www.mydomain.com and seeing if anything comes up. That's a good way to verify if you're in the index, and a great way to check external links to your site.

The easiest way to verify that you are in the index is to thype this in to the google search box site:www.yourdomain.com

This will show you every page from your site that google knows about.
