Hey, Smart People!
This is not a Linux question, but many of you do Web stuff, so
perhaps one or more of you have an explanation and suggestions.
I have had websites for 20 years. When I create a new page that is
an extension of an existing one, I copy the .html file while renaming
it, and then simply replace the text and image references with the new
information. After a few weeks, Google crawls it which allows my
website Search Feature to find items on the new page. To do this, I
invoke a Google service, the code of which you can peruse by looking
at the source of one of my "Search" pages. An example is at:
Anyway, after some months, Google still has not seen my new pages.
They can be accessed by any browser I have tried, and the w3c HTML
Validator recognises the links and pages, yet Google does not. Older
pages at the site are found by Google as normal.
Here is a link to one of the new pages. The w3c Validator passes
this page, but even plunking the full URL into Google's "Search" bar
gives a "did not match any documents" result. So it's not my "Search"
code that is at fault, and I assume not my .html document, given the
Validation `OK' I receive.
