This is just too weird. Pages removed looking at McDar in ie? mode move up a half dozen spots to #2 viewing in search? mode. Using mcdar is deceptive now. The regular datacenter search page will usually display different results.
I don't know why you guys keep refering to two data sets. There are at least ten out there now.
I just checked allinanchor in my default for a random authority site ,the 2# #3 and #4 results are other completely unrelated sites ,funny init?
Just found some sub-pages ranking down in the 300+ arena.
Homepage seems to be gone, which used to rank for main kw's.
Could the site be hijacked?
What are the other possibilites for no homepage rankings?
Comcast search now shows completely different set of results. Absoulutely no similarities with any data centers. Anyone else?
"Homepage seems to be gone"
I had the same problem few days ago with a couple of sites but I was not wotrried both indexes came back.All this problems guys are temporary just be patience and wait the next backlink & page rank update.
jaffstar, search for the page for something besides what you normally do (but that it would obviously rank for, or for two words in quotes. It will probably reappear. It kinda looks like every search result is being returned from a database 75% full, but different for every search.
"Homepage seems to be gone"
Same happened to me. Mine was gone yesterday and back again this morning.
|It will probably reappear. |
SteveB, it did :) However, for about 100 kw's where the homepage "would" usually rank, they now do not. Sub-pages now seem to rank at the bottom of the index for the 100 kw's that used to rank. ie used to rank no 1 for "widgets" for www.mysite.com, now rank 400 for www.mysite.com/subpage.

Can you please elaborate?

Yes, very scary results. I think it is official, Google has gone schizo on us.
RE "homepage missing" - does it appear if you add &filter=0 to the end of the search string?
I think it was toothake that mentioned this a couple of days back.
What a mess sit it out it all comes out in the wash eventually. Some keywords are back some are not this morning they were all AWOL.
It must be temporary - where I monitor - every result after 40 is nothing but inner pages...
Oh, yeah , plus 1,600,000,000 returned results ;)
It's actually quite sad that the head of their Spam team (MC) goes on vacation for 6 weeks and all heck breaks loose with the SERPS.
Somebody broke something in the Plex...
Steveb's 75% database theory seems to be the most plausible at this point, and it really is on a query-by-query basis as the data is torn and rebuilt. I've now watched several big terms cycle through the DCs for established sites disappearing and then popping back in.
For those with a vested interest in the outcome, I don't think watching the DCs this weekend is going to have a positive effect on your sanity. For phrases that I saw disappear and then come back, the overall quality seems a bit higher, and assuming that Google's goal is more relevancy (tinfoil hats aside), I don't think you'll have too much to worry about when all is said and done.
With so many operators gone wild and various craziness when adding the &filter=0 or using ""s, we know it isn't done cooking yet. The best I can offer is that the magically delicious disappearing, reappearing results HAVE been coming back. Disappear from the DC watch this weekend; I'm sure next week will be equally exciting for us.
