    • Hello Everyone, New member here. I recently had a new land tower based, unthrottled, uncapped, moneys-worth internet installed. Still also using my (modern) 2 years old slower, throttled, and expensive satellite based system , until the new one is proven...
    • Yeah, I don't know what's going on.  I'd expect a message in the webmaster console if there was something wrong.   Performance could have been cloudflare.  I disabled them last night, had only been running them since that recent net neutrality deadline... to run that plugin.  Wondering if enabling that had anything to do with it.  Maybe cloudflare passed the expires header off differently and it made Google think I didn't want the pages cached.   I submitted for reindexing.  Hopefully it's fixed soon.  -- Come on Google!   I hope it's just an issue with those other servers redirecting to testmy.net.  The redirects should have included 301 header and also the canonical meta.   If you can find anything I'm doing wrong from Google's perspective please let me know.   I'm just trying to help people over here by providing a free and hopefully useful service.  Between stuff like this, ad spammers and people trying to hack me constantly --- it makes it real difficult to do for the Internet what I really want.
    • I wonder if it could potentially be a performance issue? A basic network test in Chrome shows a lot of traffic loading past the 0.5s - 1.0s mark, Google puts a weight on performance as well.   I have noticed the past few days that it has feel somewhat laggy here - on my phone it takes 10-15s to do a full refresh over LTE or WIFI.   I also know the canonical tag issue mentioned by @Sean can have a negative effect if it's not properly set - Google may be indexing all the different variants, but the main page is not shown as it sees it as a "duplicate" of the uk.testmy.net page. Also, the EPOCH time for that expires is `375007920`.   I also wonder if there aren't bigger issues - my search results (attached) for even `testmy.net` only have TMN as the top 6 results, which makes me think Google doesn't have a bigger problem with something.   Thanks, EBrown
    •   That was the first place I looked.  No messages.  No issues coming up.     that's definitely a strong possibility, I edited the robots.txt on those servers to disallow.  Just did the canonical header, great suggestion.   expires header is set to nocache and even though I changed session.cache_limiter to public in php.ini it's still showing Thu, 19 Nov 1981 08:52:00 GMT     Maybe a setting in nginx I'm missing.
    • One possibility is that Google sees too many versions of the index, e.g. uk.testmy.net, dallas.testmy.net, etc.  and only lists a few variants.  I remember this being a pain in the past in the Joomla 1.x days where it would show the same page under various URLs and Google usually ended indexing obscure URL variations of some pages.   Both Bing and DuckDuckGo have the main test.my homepage URL indexed, so it doesn't seem to be something preventing crawlers from indexing it.    One thing I suggest is adding a Canonical meta header tag to the home page to specify "http://testmy.net" as the preferred URL, as explained here.
