    What kind of ban is this ????


    hi,
    I just cant figure out what kind of a ban is this coz even after getting good number of links google is still not indexing my websites.i have gone bonkers.....phew
    Here are the websites ..

    www dot homepoint dot com dot au
    www dot readzine dot com
    www dot motortrend dot com dot au

    I have similar wordpress blogs and they are very well indexed by google so i don't think there is any problem with the code.

    any help will be greatly appreciated.

    OK, for readzine.com I checked your code, I dont know if it is the reason but you should check it anyways:
    a) you have no opening <head>, but close it close it in the 4th line. before I already find a <title> tag.
    b) you close the <head> (which in a) wasnt opned) and open a body, open a total new <html>, than another <head>, close this head and the body.... and later you close again the head and open the actual body.
    I cannot name all the mistakes here because I get confused. It is totally mixed up.
    use it like this:
    <html>
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>
    </html>
    Not more. Check it youself:

    <meta name="verify-v1" content="2rDn+QxH1ipSo5y99QRZlxWlNLGA8O5gvUYVLX3Xw V8=" />

    For motortrend it looks similar. you have no opening <html> tag, more <head> opening than closing:

    <head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
    <meta name="distribution" content="global" />
    <meta name="robots" content="follow, all" />
    <meta name="language" content="en" />
    <head>
    <title>MotorTrend</title>
    <meta name="keywords" content=", pickup truck suv reviews,best suv reviews, new automobile reviews,low car prices automobile" />
    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 2.0.3" />

    Bad Markup is the cause alright for these two -

    For the fixes for Motortrend

    Readzine

    Dunno about HomePoint it validated better with just some minor errors which you can view here
    my reckoning is the missing divs tags are causing the problem with the bots - its always best to validate your code in any case, saves niggling problems like these from occuring.
