How Little Mistakes Can Cause Big Problems
It isn’t just a lack of search engine optimization that can cause problems for WordPress site owners. If the person who built your WordPress site has it hidden, your site can be completely ignored by search engines. Forget about having a site map or keywords when that happens.
If you’ve done a search for your specific site or company name and it still doesn’t show up, chances are good that your site is being hidden from search engines. Some designers will hide a site while it is under construction, but this setting should be disabled once it is ready to go live. Make sure this little mistake doesn’t happen to you. Don’t discourage search engines from indexing your site.
