Dealing With Consequences of Jagger Update
Your site dropped? Lost rankings? What to do now?

 8:25 am on Nov 12, 2005 (gmt 0)

Hi Folks

Jagger is winding down and life must go on. If Jagger has been kind to your site, Congrats. But for the rest of fellow members who lost rankings or their sites dropped of the index, its time to do some thinking and decide on what to improve or change on your affected websites. Still ethical measures are what interest me most.

Some food for the thought.

After my site was hit by Allegra (2-3 Feb 2005) and lost 75% of my Google's referrals and hit for second time on 22nd July 2005 ending up with only 5-10% of pre-Allegra Google's referrals.
My site is now back to the level of around 50% of pre-Allegra Google's referrals and growing... until further. I say "until further" because who knows what the next update or "everflux" do to my site!

Before my site returned back around 19-22 Sept 2005 (very slow at the begining), I went through my site several times for months and did the followings:

- removed duplicate pages. In my case it was several testing pages (even back to 1997) which I just forgot on the server.

- removed one or two 100% frame pages.

- removed some pre-sell affiliate program pages with content provided entirely by affiliate program vendors.

- removed few (affiliate referrals) outbound links which was on the menu bar of all pages (maybe we are talking about sitewide linking).

- on resource pages, I reduced the outbound links to be less than 100 .

- made a 301 redirect non-www to www (thanks to my good Norwich friend Dayo-UK).

- finally filed a reinclusion request in accordance with the guidelines posted on Matt's blog (thanks Mr. Inigo).

Would you be kind to tell us how Jagger Update affected your site, and what do you intend to do about it.

Happy New Year!

[] shows new results and is at least over here in Germany for some people live on Google.de

Boy that is a messy one for me. Supplementals going back to October 2004. About half my pages in the index compared to Google.com here.

You are hitting google.de on [] and I'm hitting google.com still on []
However both show the test serps or lets say the new serps, as far as the sectors I'm watching are concerened.

While the original test DC isn't showing the test serps anymore. Smart..very smart of the folks at the plex :-)

Am seeing [] results on google.co.uk

I actually think these are looking good - not seeing lot's of spam and am seeing lot's more relevant sites ranking, rather than the "select few" that have stagnated the SERPS over recent months.

That new stuff is pretty weak. No help on supplemetals, but an awful lot of very weak spam not found ranking in the other/normal results.
