    1. Hello Sandeep,

      Both are better one. The 1st one is used when your are not using google adsense on your blog while second one is used when you are using google adsense on your blog.

      User-agent: Mediapartners-Google (This is for adsense ads)

      Sandeep do let me know if you have any more queries regarding the same.

      Hope this helps :)

    1. Hello Sandeep,

      First of all make sure that your blog post is not (nofollow, noindex). If everything is fine here. Then you have to keep patience till Google crawlers comes to your blog and crawl your latest blog post.

      To make it faster I suggest you to share you blog post link on various social media sites.

      You can also learn to improve Search engine optimization of your blog . In this post I have also mentioned some reputed social media networks in which you can submit your post links.

      Hope this helps. Don't forget to share this post with your social media friends :)

    1. Hello harish,

      Don't worry buddy. Its neither good nor bad. It just simply tells google to index your post from 501 to 1000. So, if you have written more than 500 post then its good else it means nothing to google.

      hope this helps :)
