Missing Cached And 18 Month Old Metas
Cached Missing and Old Metas Listed In Serps

Anyone know what would cause two of my sites to be listed in the Serps, but with no Cache and Meta Descriptions from 18 months ago? This happened with the recent data push and has cut my traffic in half. Even the home page shows an old description. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

This gets even stranger as this morning when I check my Serp positions some of the url's returned have yesterday's date next to the title.

So to sum it up.

1. Site no longer showing cached in Serps.
2. Old meta descriptions from 18 months ago.
3. Traffic cut in half.
4. Now a date next to my title in the serps.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

What kind of changes have you been making to the site over the past 90-120 days?

Very few changes to the site if any other than continuing to try to produce a quality article a day.

Maybe this from 2006 March...

1:55 pm on Mar. 4, 2006 (utc -8)

Showing my ignorance as a new Webmaster back in January of 2005 I removed the link to my forum area as it was performing terribly and I decided I would completely redo them the next month. One thing lead to another and a year plus later I found myself getting ready to redesign and install a new forum only to run across my old forum complete with new posts including over 160 posts outbound links to porn sites. I quickly did a query on the wording of the link descriptions and my site name and found Google has these links indexed.

For the last year I've chased my tail trying to figure out where my traffic has gone, could this be the reason? How would you handle the removal of this information? Thanks in advance.

You have a date next to your title? That isn't the usual position for a "Fresh Date".

What is that date, old or recent? Is that date tracking the last time you visited the site?

The above is a post from you in 2006 March. At that time, your site had been comprimised. And, it was probably comprimised long enough to send it into purgatory. Depending on how bad it was, you may never come out of purgatory and all sorts of wierd stuff may show up for your domain.

Thanks all of your help. Pageone yes I did have that problem at one time, however the site appeared to make a come back for several months. Traffic never did return to it's original levels after a hacking, hijacking and the links issue. With that said I was in the 2k visitors a day range which helped the site get into the black not counting the many hours I put into it.
Page one do you believe a site that goes into G's purgatory will ever be forgiven? Maybe I'm chasing my tail here.

Are you using a Google Robots META Element with noarchive?

I still see oddities with Google. Take, for example, a PDF that had an email address removed from it many years ago.

When making a Google search for that email address, the document was still returned as a match and the long ago deleted email address still showed in the snippet for more than a year after the email address was deleted from the document. This result was, of course, shown as a Supplemental Result.

Later still, the result completely dropped out of Google results.

However, a few months ago, those pages started to be returned again in the SERPs (if you make a search for the email address), the snippet shows the email address again, but now those results are not marked as being Supplemental. The email address has not been mentioned in the document for much more than two years now.

That is an error.
