Ask/Teoma ill?
Amazing Decrease in pages indexed.

 9:56 am on Mar 14, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have always done reasonably well on Jeeves (never known why)

This morning though lots of my pages have disappeared - now this does seem to happen on Jeeves - but when one site goes other tend to do well.

So I did a few domain checks and Amazon.com has only got 700 odd pages listed, About.com only 13.

Is the butler ill - or perhaps they only want sponsored listings now.

Well I definetly think something is up - it may be only temporary.

On the plus side for me - some of my pages that are still in dont seem to have much competition.

Now Showing 1-7 in some previously popular searches.

Amazon.co.uk - 29 pages.

Agreed - down from 17k pages in Teoma to all of 37, with nothing having changed at this end!

Hopefully just a temporary thing, as Ask provides, or provided, a surprising amount of traffic!

I am glad someone else is seeing it.

Jeeves also provides(d) a surprising amount of traffic for me - but often gets overlooked at WebmasterWorld.

inurl: on Webmasterworld shows 6 pages!

For one site the rankings have gone up a bit, but another site cannot be found for most of its keywords.

It may just be a blip. Ask Jeeves does not provide much of my traffic, even from the AdWords it shows.

Get well soon Jeeves!

That's why I like this forum. I thought it was me. I did nothing to my site, but woke up to find 90% of my pages gone from their index.

They must be in the process of an update, if not then...

Get Well Soon Jeeves!

Feeling a bit better now I see.

Teoma must have some datacentres they switch over with.

Looks like a glitch in the Matrix ;)

Looks like things are settling a bit, but whether normal service has been resumed, I've yet to check.

And now, to the pub!

I just noticed that my pages appear to be back. Good for you Jeeves!

By the way, I had checked the search term "the" when pages were low - only 70 million results. Right now this is showing 1.3 billion.

for old sites, i see no real effect.

but on the crawling of new content that the big 3 are catching and indexing - massive lag!


 11:47 pm on Mar 17, 2005 (gmt 0)

I lost every page of every domain after my position tech pfi expired for the index page of each domain. A friend of mine managed to hang onto to all of four of his 200 pages after the pfi for one page expired.

Terminally ill, except as a sponsored result site.
