I recently completely redesigned my website,
http://concourstee.fr. We used to have a fairly good ranking in Google, but when redesigning the website I thought I'd try to make things better. (WordPress Yoast plugin for SEO, better use of keywords, etc.)
So I moved the old website to
http://concourstee.fr/old/ and uploaded the new version of the website. (Both versions are running WordPress)
Since then, my website has just completely disappeared from Google, I have absolutely no idea why... I realized that Google only found the old website, under
concourstee.fr/old/ when doing a search for
site:concourstee.fr, so I moved it downloaded a backup of the old website and deleted it. Google can still only find
concourstee.fr/old/, about a week afterwards, and it still won't display the new website, even when searching for things as basic as "Concours Total EDHEC Entreprendre", which is the actual name of the site, and appears several times on the main page.
I then realized I had an error in my code :
<meta name="robots" content="none" /> <meta name="googlebot" content="none" />
Which I fixed two days ago, changing
index,follow, but I am still not appearing in Google...
So what am I to do? We have a big event coming up and we really need our Google visibility back!
