Hi there

I'm searching Google for any of the headlines in the news section of my client's website but can't find any of them. I can find all the static pages, but can't find any that were dynamically generated using Server Connect and App Connect.

Is there something about these pages that means Google can't index them?

thanks in advance

Google has no issues rendering App Connect bindings on the page - so there are no issues with SEO, when using App Connect.
Most probably you created the pages too soon, and they are not yet indexed. You can test this using the google developer tools - fetch as google bot feature:

OK, I've gone onto Google using the link and added the site. I've then clicked on 'Fetch' and it says it's 'complete' in the table below the box. Does this mean that Google has successfully indexed the site? I still can't find any of the pages that have content created using App Connect on Google

Example page being

Enter that url into google and I get no results apart from the sitemap.xml file

Enter the opening paragraph of that page into Google and it doesn't bring up the web page, so it certainly looks like Google aren't indexing the news pages. They've been uploaded for a month or two now so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas?

I don't know if that's related, but there is a syntax error on your page. There are two action files placed outside the body tag, and tehy must be AFTER the opening body tag:

Also - the link i sent you in my previous post is to preview how google fetches the sites, i.e. what goolge sees - it is not for adding the page in the crawler list.
There might be many reasons fro your pages not being indexed yet - like robots.txt restricting them etc.

From what i see your site is not indexed at all .. only a couple of pages are, that's not really app connect related.

Thanks Teodor. I'll look into the indexing and fix those action files
