I'm back to -15% for indexed page count today but 4 of the new pages have been picked up.
They've almost got to be doing some type of testing, cause I'm seeing less youtube than usual in some of the searches I've been checking.
Still only seeing limited movement in the SERPs. One or two positions +/- or one or two pages being "swapped" in/out, but no "huge shake ups".
I thought that's what the "YouTube" tab was for at the top of the page.
I think we need to keep in mind it's is Google we're talking about so "giving people a choice" being the same as "the right answer" does not seem to compute. In fact, I think even this page might generate a server error since in contains "the right answer" is "giving people a choice" and that definitely seems to conflict with their way of thinking and the algo itself lol
You know if enough people don't know they really want to see youtube videos so they're not clicking on the tab at the top the only thing Google can do to help them understand that's what they really want is to put the youtube pages in the results and take the other ones away.
