I was updating my article about PageRank (yes, recently was an official update) and by the way checked how are my articles doing. I discovered my profile is not indexed and I don't know why.

I believe this issue is related to robot.txt file.

 

Or is there something I am doing wrong?

 

Thanks!

Seems that is intentionally here - unfortunately! SY

There is a difference:

"Sam aka Hospitalera is moving and writing allover" - from your profile - in the search window of the big G gives me correct answer:

wizzley.com/authors/Sam/

 

Try:

 

"company from Ljubljana, Slovenia. We are trying to" - from my profile - in the same search window

Definitely not intentional on Wizzley's part. Perhaps it just got overlooked by the G and just needs a little more time? 

I've had pages before that were ignored for some reason, but eventually showed up in the index. If it's really important to you, you might want to draw attention to your profile page by linking from some high-traffic page, or utilizing a ping service.

Thanks, but I don't think so. Profiles of 'younger' authors are indexed and profiles with less text are indexed too.

 

If you enter:

 

"wizzley.com/authors/Tolovaj" in the search window, you'll get the notice (don't know about the English G, mine is Slovene) telling this result is not available because of robot.txt settings

For other authors on wizzley (I tried several) the result is available.

 

Maybe Simon can tell more on this one?

Ok, so I tried to google our direct author links and you are right, my profile is indexed, yours not ;-( Perhaps an age thing???

Sorry Nightowl, I confused the original question with our Wizzograhies which are no-index ... Seems Big G needs some time to catch up on author profiles here, my tip would be to add it to G+ or tweet about it ...

If I search for "http://wizzley.com/authors/Tolovaj/" exactly like this in google.com I get "No results found for "http://wizzley.com/authors/Tolovaj/". Yet. I would not worry to much, Google crawls this forum and will pick up on it soon as we just wrote bout it and mentioned No results found for http://wizzley.com/authors/Tolovaj/ ;-)

Maybe some localized Ggl indices update slower than others. It's possible that you're seeing the result from when you weren't a trusted author yet and your profile was restricted. 

We might never know the reasoning or the logic behind it, but all I can tell you is we do not willfully withhold your profile page from the index. Give it some time, or follow some of the advice given to draw attention to your page.

Yes I did, but I can't see it in my research, therefor ... what Nightowl said and patience until Big G catches up with reality ;-)

Well, it is indexed in Yahoo and Bing, so the problem is probably with G, not Wizzley.

But this robot.txt still looks suspicious to me...

Thanks for your consolation, it seems I can't do more than waiting. Maybe I'll add some text. It helped me before.

That will be local to your Google location, Google doesn't index the real web, it caches it, downloads it and then indexes it. So you will have to wait until Google comes around next time and downloads / updates its cache ;-)

Try building links to your author page. Ezine Articles allows two links in their resource box. Point one to your article and one to your profile. You can also add your Wizzley author page in your  Ezine Articles author profile where it says "website" Or.. add your Wizzley profile to Technorati for a really good dofollow link.

How do I know if I'm still a restricted author?

My profile and article are also not indexed by Google.

Okay, I think I've just read about it. At least 5 articles. ...
