Is Your Web Host Killing Your Traffic?

If you set up a new wordpress blog in the last week or so you may be scratching your head wondering where your traffic is.  

My webhost in the last week or so changed how the standard fantastico install of WordPress works.  To my knowledge, they didn’t advise users of any change (or else I didn’t get the memo!).  By the way, that’s my affiliate link  so if you buy hosting through my link I’ll be able to keep up my required intake of coffee

Usually, when you do a quick fantastico WP install the default install allows the search engines to see your site.    Someone, in their wisdom, in the last week or so decided that the new option for a default install should be that the search engines are blocked from your site.    If you have been waiting patiently for traffic to come to your site and it hasn’t arrived yet then this might be the problem ๐Ÿ™‚

Of course, it’s easy to fix and easy to check if your blog is by default blocking the search engines.   Just go to Settings/Privacy and make sure the radio button is clicked to allow the search engines to come and give your blog some love. 


Remember, to check all your blogs that you have set up in the last week or so to make sure that you have the search engine button love turned on ๐Ÿ™‚
