Thanks for the feedback guys - I don't know a whole lot about the
topic, but perhaps because the content on the wiki is stored in the
database and there no static html pages, so unless you get the wiki to
recognize search bots and serve content nothing will get indexed?
Wikipedia and other wikis show up on google all the time. Maybe I just
need to give my wiki a bit more time :)

So you're asking whether there is any way to
get MediaWiki to generate
HTML meta tags (with appropriate content parameters).
I don't know the answer, it just seemed to me that that's your question
(right?). I'm just saying.
It might be worth noting that many pages in MediaWiki sites are have
special meta tags that tell robots not to index the page nor to follow
links in the page. I think it's mostly dynamic pages that don't really
make sense to index. If this were happening for article pages, though,
it'd be a bug.
It might be worth checking if the pages that aren't working have some
weird <meta> tags.
