indexing trouble - blank google cache

Postby kevinc » Mon Aug 10, 2009 8:54 pm

I am having an issue with google reading my page - googlebot has visited often and has cached my page a handful of times. BUT when I view the cache it looks like this:

http://74.125.155.132/search?q=cache:7h ... =firefox-a

It shows I have no forums at all and I have never had no forums, I had 4 forums before I went live so it never saw a blank version of the site. Any help here at all, I am very concerned about this????

Looks like a bot groups authorization issue. Make sure that bots can actually view and read all public forums.

thank you for the reply and this is sort of what I was thinking but I wasn't sure how to fix it. I was sure I had the site wide open to all bots and guests? What do I need to change?

As said, you need to change the bot groups authorisations, they must be able to read and view all public forums. This is done by checking all forums authorisations.
