WordPress: SEO Ranking bad after setting „read more“ tags

After some weeks of cleaning up my blog, i remarked a very bad ranking from under the first 10 on google to nirvana

What did i change?

  • saved wp-login with htaccess to non-public
  • set post content with „read more“ buttons

Background:

  • Search engine like google wasn’t able to pull content of posts which are cut by „more“
  • Search engine wasn’t able to pull relinks over the wp-admin url by the internal wordpress feeds

I was forced to turn back my settings and wait for better ranking.. not safe but must be..
