Do New Sites Always Go Supplemental?

 2:11 pm on Mar 7, 2007 (gmt 0)

Just curious to see if anyone else have this happen. I have a new site (les than a month old) with only a couple of links from some directories and as soon as google found my site after a week or two most of the pages that were indexed turned supplemental. If this is the case then there is no chance of ranking a new site.

depends on the quality of the directory links I would venture.

anyone else got some advice?

Supplemental pages rank just fine for the long tail, and that is really all that new sites with only a few links should rank for anyway.

New sites usually go supplemental due to no incoming links and low pagerank on the internal pages. Just keep building your content and work on getting links. If you do a little work your pages will start coming out of the supplemental index.

Yes, I have a new site that went supplemental. It still gets found though.

It never used to be like that for new sites. This is something that just recently started. The only thing that I have ever had supplemental was pages that 404'd.

It used to be that new sites would rank well right off, and collect links while on top, then drop to page 3 or 4. Then slowly work their way back up.
