@ diberry - but are those deep searchers converting? It almost seems like there's a robot doing the digging rather than a human. I can't imagine a human going through that much trouble.
Some do convert, some not.
Just hoping that Google really likes leaner cleaner layouts.
I told this in a message before. I think panda is looking at html coding styles.
I just hope that Google doesn't slam us for adding large volumes of products... we are ecommerce and new widgets come out all the time. Unfortunately they also get discontinued a lot as well... normally I'd love to just delete those items from the database, but the sales team gets calls from customers looking for those products and if they cant easily see that it is no longer available then they spend too much time trying to hunt something down that's long gone... we do put a no index tag on those product pages.
We add a 100 products a week. No issue so far. But traffic remains constant. You should have think with 100 products a week there should be a little more traffic, but no, what we see is that keys are rotating between the different product categories.
->Does it work with "no index tag" by EOL -products?
We 404 them, but google still tries to crawl them even after 6 month now. I just put a 410- gone on that pages.
But google still uses an old not anymore existing page that had some links on it to crawl my page.
