Pages Indexed, Then De-Indexed

Hi everyone,

About a week ago I began submitting daily sitemaps to Google (whenever I made an update). After a few days, they indexed 7 pages.

Today I logged into Webmaster Tools and it said that 0 URLs were indexed. I thought maybe they slapped my site, but my PPC campaign was running solidly with good QS.

I did notice there were 2 crawl errors. The errors were triggered when the spider visited Wordpress pages that I deleted. How do I get G to stop crawling deleted pages? I thought they were...deleted!

Did they stop indexing (and de-index) my URLs because of this?

Thanks!
Ken

Hi Ken,
I think you will find that Google will drop the deleted pages when they crawl your site next.

I don't think the deleted pages are cuaseing the problem. I think Google is just "quirky" with new sites. I have had sites pop on and of the the radar for days before they settle down for a permanant rank.
