HELP my Urls have been dropped out of googles search results
My apologies im having a bit of a panic, I have only recently put up my site about a week and a few days ago,
anyhow i have been using traffic travis to monitor my rankings on various pages and search terms and for my review pages i was doing quite well for one search term "12 hour cure for yeast infection review" i was on 10 in the results, and i havent begun any offsite seo yet.
there were numerous others that were coming up slowly as well, but BAM today i check and they are all completely dropped from the SERPS
I think it may be something to do with the Robots.txt..
Anyway , after viewing the video lesson about putting a link into your robots.txt to your sitemap.xml(something i had never thought about and thought was really neat) i did this by searching for a topic on how to do this on the internet, and i found this site that said if you dont put a space eg: then your urls dont get indexed - so i had my robots as below when the spiders came around...
my root rankings remain unchanged http://www.remediesforthrush.com
so i guess it must be something to do with the pesky space, i have removed it to see if this fixes the problems.
so now it looks like this:
Please help me regarding this as the implications are obvious, the articles and reviews are original, i wrote them myself.
Thanks & kind regards
