Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My website appears in Google search, but only the first page. Of course I have sub-pages linked from the first page, but the sub-pages do not show in Google search. Not in Yahoo, not in Bing.

What should I do? It has been three years that sub-pages do not show. (I tried searching site:mydomain.com and pressed 'repeat the search with the omitted results included' link) What would you suspect the reason?

My website addresses were like xxx.php?yy=zzz etc, etc, so I changed it to /yy/zzz using mod_rewrite.

I thought it might be (X)HTML standard violations, so now I changed it.

I hope Google will soon have my entire website, but I am a little bit pessimistic.

Do you have any thought?

What's your website address? I could try take a look if any problem sticks out and catch my eye –  Tom Mar 10 '11 at 13:59
    
@Tom Thanks for your goodwill. Now, at least Google has my pages in its index. So, I guess it's okay now. Perhaps it was sitemap, but I'm not sure. Thanks any way!! –  FEQ Mar 14 '11 at 18:20

Add your site to Google Webmaster Tools. Under Health, check for crawl errors, blocked URLs and malware. All potentially problematic for indexing inner pages.

By sub-pages, I guess you mean the links shown below some sites in Google search results which are called Sitelinks.

Sitelinks are completely automated & based on Google's algorithms. To get Sitelinks for a site it helps to have a well-structured website.

As per Googler Maile Ohye,

Sitelinks are often produced when there's a high probability that the site is the top match for the user's query. In other words, to have sitelinks ... you'll probably need to be the definitive first result

I think they meant inner page, i.e. pages that are not their home page. –  John Conde Feb 27 '11 at 16:48
    
Yes, I meant inner pages. –  FEQ Feb 27 '11 at 20:05
