Have any of you seen your Index status on WMT really fluctuate? I had this when I was originally hit in May of 2012. All the sudden the number of pages blocked by Robots skyrocketed for no apparent reason. Gradually it came down to zero (I don't think I did anything to make it go up or down). Now I see a huge jump again on 06/30/2013 and a rise around 10/13/13. Strange thing is I really thought we were recovering good up until about this 10/13 date. Now I don't use just hits and pageviews when looking at a recovery. I look at hits and sales and get a pretty accurate picture. 2011 was a record year for us and earlier this month we were beating 2011 so we were feeling good. Now it is just like the doors were closed and I am getting real sick of the stuff. I would like to be able to run my business without this Google interference. If things are positive I need more trucks, people etc and on the other hand its don't dare spend any excess money. This fluctuation has to stop. It is like working in a factory where you work overtime for 4 weeks then laid off 3 weeks, then 30 hrs for 2 weeks then mad overtime for 4 weeks again.
