I've recently been asked to take over and redevelop a site. Curiously, the only pages Google has indexed of the old site are PDF versions of the content (apparently generated by a Joomla widget). Bing lists nothing at all.
There's nothing in the robots.txt or any meta tags that would have caused this, and no analytics code in place. As the site is being started from scratch I have no access to anything in the former CMS or .htaccess.
Some sample URLs, stripped of domain.
Any ideas what may have caused this, and whether it might affect indexing in future? The new site will have a different structure and friendlier URLs.
