Is this for a WP site that you are hosting? Or is it hosted at wordpress.com?

If you are hosting the site, I'd start by setting up your webmaster tools account so you can review what pages are being indexed, or if there are any crawl errors.

Hi,

Well, the site is www.loveforunix.com, but also can be reached by loveforunix.wordpress.com

And yes, I have setup webmaster tools.

How can I check if google is indexing the site?

Thanks.

When you log into Webmaster Tools, on the left you'll see the index info:

Incidentally, you can see that Google has indexed your site via this search operator.

When you say that Google stopped showing your posts, what exactly is the issue? Are you not able to find your site/page with a specific keyword search that used to work?

yes, new posts are not shown...

Looking on webmaster tools, I see google has indexed loveforunix.com, but not www.loveforunix.com
See image attached.

is this normal?  Why www.loveforunix.com is not indexed?

Thanks.

If both the main domain (loveforunix.com) and the sub-domain (www.) were indexed, you'd run the risk of a duplicate content penalty, for having two unique sites with the same content.

Currently you are 301 redirecting the sub-domain (www.) to the main domain. This is a SEO best practice.
