From an email I just sent out…
Getting pages indexed is not usually a big problem. Typically if you have issues w/ it its due to either complicated URLs with way too many parameters (common on e-com sites) or lack of good basic text-link navigation and/or site map. A hugely unpopular site might also have issues – i.e. a site with only a couple inbound links – search engines just won’t care about it enough to index deeply.
I’m going to paste into my blog I write so much in emails yet never update that friggin’ blog. Time to kill two birds with one stone!
