I just thought I would throw this into the mix. I manage a small 32 page site for a mom and pop business that does very well in it's search queries for it's niche. It's only 32 pages and about 9 months ago it started going supplemental slowly until only the index page was non-supplemental. Still maintained it;s ranking even tho none of those supp pages showed up for even the most extreme search. I thought I had all the bases covered. No reason for the supplementals. Except no deep links really. All went to the mysite.com/-
Well, last month g1smd finally drove it into my punkin head that I WAS missing one thing. I was on a microsoft server with no isapi rewrite installed.
I got it moved over to an apache server last month and installed the base href on every page.
Looked today and four pages are out of supplemental. Looks like when they get crawled now, they come out shortly after. Cache dates are dec. 23rd.
Thanks g1smd! I owe you one. Dang! Why didn't I understand that whole thing sooner.
