I don't know if anyone else is seeing this, but I recall from the big daddy update that people were seeing pages drop out of google. Is anyone else seeing this?
My actual web traffic is up significantly, yet when I do a site: operator search in google, the number of indexed pages is down. Also, when I plug certain urls into google, they are likewise showing not showing up. These same pages also show no pagerank.
All of these pages are individually written, though they are naturally variatons of the same central topic. Could it be that these pages are being kicked out to due to duplicate content issues? I thought when that was the case they went supplemental, not de-indexed.
Something that keeps popping up in similar threads is that interior pages may have more likelihood of being dropped if they are too many jumps away from the home page. Don't know why this would make sense because this would wreck havoc with a lot of intricately developed sites, but a few individuals are reporting this. Also, lately, it seems that the google site operator command is really goofy. Not goofy like usual but a new kind of goofy.
