I'm using Google Webmaster Tools to manage my site SEO; even with 600 articles my total indexed pages is zero.

When I use "Fetch as Google" I get the following.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<html>
  <head>
    <title>302 Found</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>Found</h1>
    <p>The document has moved <a href="http://example.com">here</a>.</p> <hr />
  </body>
</html>

My site is made with Drupal 7, and the Boost module.

Is that caused by a wrong configuration? If so, how can I fix it?

  • Have you tried to submit sitemap to Google? Try if this helps, also: drupal.org/project/xmlsitemap

  • yes of course,the site is verified and all my sitemaps are submitted to google Jan 5, 2013 at 17:22
  • Did you tried it without Boost? I tried to implement boost too, but ended up using Varnish cache (better imo, if you can)

It looks like you have a different domain either registered or for testing with Google Webmaster Tools.

e.g example.com vs www.example.com

When the bot requests example.com, it is redirected to www.example.com with an HTTP 302 Found reponse.

The solution would be to register the same preferred domain with Google Webmaster Tools that is used for regular site visitors.

As for 0 pages of a new site being indexed in Google, give it time. If you've registered the sitemap, and signed up for Google Analytics, the googlebot will arrive soon. It can take a couple of weeks.

  • For the 302 found i will give you an ansewer afetr testing it,and for the 0 page my website is 4 months old Jan 6, 2013 at 2:03
  • I've seen it take up to 6 months before for Google indexing to occur. It tends to be shorter these days though. Test the index also by searching site:example.com in Google. Jan 6, 2013 at 2:15
  • In Webmastertools->Configuration->Setting->Preffered domain my own preffered domain is not set "Don't set a preferred domain" and when i try to change it to www.example.com or just example.com i get the following messgae: "Part of the process of setting a preferred domain is to verify that you own sahara-question.com. Please verify sahara-question.com." what does it mean?and how to fix that? thank you very much Jan 6, 2013 at 2:20
  • You need to go through the verification process with the new adjusted domain. The instructions are explained in Google Webmaster Tools. Jan 6, 2013 at 5:35
  • Did you mean i delete my old site account in google webmaster tools and recreate another one Jan 6, 2013 at 12:35

No you don't have to recreate a new account for your site on google weblaster tools,just wait for few days or weeks and it will be ok . For the boost some make sure that your boost code gotten from the module generator is well copied before

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/favicon.ico RewriteRule ^ index.php

test it and everything will be ok

I found the ansewer:
It's the Boost module,i had misconfigured it, i should put the Boost code above this line not under it:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/favicon.ico RewriteRule ^ index.php [L
