Question: I did the Google search site:myreadylink.com, it reflects 2010 pages searched. How do I determine how many pages that I have on my site so I can determine how many have been indexed?
Also how can I determine what pages haven’t been indexed since I have so many pages because of the nature of my site?
Answer: First question, you have to KNOW yourself how many pages your site has. Usually your software can tell you this, or have your programmer create some sort of widget to do so. Then compare with what Google says to determine your penetration. You want to get to 80% or so in terms of stuff in Google.
For any specific URL you can use the site: Command to find out if that URL is in Google.
You have to compare / contrast your list vs. Google’s list to find out what is not in the index. There isn’t any simple way to do this. I usually just spot check individual pages.
