Hi,


I published an article a while ago - but got really busy with work so havent been able tow write much more...but am going to start again in earnest now Ive a bit more time...


My question is: My article: "How to Clean Gutters" isn't ranking on google at all - even if I type in "How to Clean Gutters Wizzley"


What ranks top is a twitter link: https://twitter.com/wizzleynews/statuses/238371425910669313


Does anyone know why this is - perhaps because my overall score is so low?

 

Thanks...!

Your article looks published to me, but it is not indexed by Google.

If I type part of the article "causing them to overflow, which could then" in search window, I got results on zomobo.net and shelf3d.com with same strings. Maybe Google treats the version on Wizzley as duplicated content...

I am sure this has nothing to do with your overall score which is pretty good for one published article.

Ok, seems we found the culprit.

Simon discovered that you set this article to be your "wizzography", which does not get indexed. This is actually reserved for pages that are somewhat of an extended profile, or biography, of yours.

So all you need to do is remove it from your settings page and you should be good to go.

tman's just an innovator, he wanted to see how fast he could sandbox his own article :) hehe
