I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: YES / NO
My site's URL (web address) is:onlinetainment.com
Description (including timeline of any changes made):
dear all,
I have trouble about tag cloud.my site is a new website and never registered before.I use wordpress as my core engine.
My tag cloud is not indexed by search engine,but my usual post is indexed normally by search engine.
In my google webmaster tools there is show that 1412 url submited but only 291 indexed, and all indexed url is my normal post.
There is no robot.txt in my website.

Is that normal or anything that I can do?
Very thank you for your help before.

That's a good thing. You want to block your tag cloud pages from being indexed.

Check your SEO plugin, you have set it to noindex for Tags.

If you don't know how to use tags (and it doesn't look like you do, no offense), don't use them. As many as you have - they look really spammy.

Tags can be a great way to target specific keywords and have worked well for me in the past - but can cause trouble if you don't know how to use them effectively. Limit how many tags you use or it will be considered keyword stuffing by Google.  I would limit to about 25 tags and then probably do a no-follow if you really want to use them.

There are 3 points of view when thinking about tags:

User:  They can be very good for the user if used properly and well targeted.  As it allows the user to find relevant/related content of interest.

Search Engine:  From a SE point of view, allowing the indexing of TAG pages, all you are doing is presenting duplicate content pages.  ie all the info on a TAG page is just content that is available elsewhere on the site.  Such as category pages, author pages and archieves etc.  So therefore from a SE point of view, they hold little of no unique content.

SEO:  Many people think that they can use TAGS to target keywords.  Well yes you can, but it is not as effective as people think.  Concentrate your efforts on Post or Pages and not TAGs.  You will get better return for your work.  Additionally, with so many TAGs your link juice will be majorly diluted across your site, which will result in important content of you site being lost and not ranked as you would like.
