    My site url is This site was started 5 months ago and I update it regularly. At firs all the posts, I submitted were indexed instantly. But from last 1 moth the indexing is stopped. Day by day the no of indexed urls in webmaster tool is decreasing. Now the total urls, I've submitted is 97. But in webmaster tools it is showing that 58 urls are indexed. But the wondering thing is that the indexed url no was 67 one week ago. Now it is 58. I also noticed that when I search by in Google then 143 urls are appearing in the search result. I'm very confused. Please help me.

    Multifox is a nice one. I have always been using SandboxIE which isolates two versions of Firefox so that they cannot interact with each other, thus allowing me to log in twice, but this seems lots easier. :D Thanks!
