Dropped from worldwide search but not UK fred_bloggs
What's going on? Untill recently I was PR 11 for my favourite keyword with a worldwide search, now I dont appear at all.
However I do feature in a UK and Ireland search at PR6.
I'm getting more traffic now so I'm not complaining, but I would like to know what's happened.
Have you changed hosting, or server location?
Check the IP address for your webserver to check which country it shows your site under.
No... Nothing has been changed my end, the server is a UK one, my competitors have not changed position either, just me. maccas
Give it a few days, pages drop in and out. wheelie34
PR 11 for my favourite keyword
There were problems a few weeks/month ago about corrupt domain databases placing many UK domains as being in Amsterdam, one of my .com's went from the global and remained in the UK its hosted in the UK on a UK IP but G was thinking otherwise.
Is yours a .com or co.uk
I'm with maccas. Wait and it will come back. This has happend to our own site. Seems to be some sort of glich, lasted about 5 days. fred_bloggs
Yes maccas was right.
I'm now back with a worldwide search at a slightly improved PR10. The UK search has slipped one place but it tends to move about anyway.
Thanks as always for your words of wisdom.
