After this update, they do not appear in the SERPS at all ... what is going on? I am totally stumped.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
in a google search. this will tell if you are in the index or not. you may be in the index, but just dropped in the rankings.
if you are legit / clean site, then you can contact google. read the florida thread, [webmasterworld.com...] and the first post tells how to contact him if you have a serious problem.
I guess we have no choice but to "hang-in."
Did you change something since the last Google update?
I noticed I have 6,000 more pages indexed since the last update. But the site is no longer in the SERPS for almost all of its keyword phrases ...
Maybe Google got too many pages indexed too fast?
>Sunset_Jim - Did you do anything for your site to reappear one or two months later in the SERPS?
No, I didn't do anything to cause it to reappear the last time this happened. Yesterday I found my site in some of the data centers with the same SERPS as before.
Im desperate to find out what has happend, I still have page rank - it is really strange, also when I check the domain name, it has been index but the description has been changed to content information.
What is going on?
Well from what I can understand, these things do happen, have happend, and will happen.
Its a shame, yes - last month it happend to my main competitor.....and this month to me - the only thing I could be guilty of is over optimisation on content in my home page - I still have page rank so this might not be the case.
Im going to check all my links to make sure they are in the right categories, and none of them have been penalized. Im going to double check everything again, if I find I have not got a problem I will contact Google and if all else fails, simply wait.
I think the point is this - if your link campaign is a strategic one, it can produce more traffic than search engines. If you are not generating any leads/traffic from your link partners then you need to either get some more or change the ones you got for better ones.
Link building is only really good if it brings you traffic, a link from a PR0 that gives you a client is better than a PR10 site that doesn't.
I think my solution is strategic internet marketing....if I find I have a problem or get a response from Google i'll let you all know.
I need to contact them regarding our issue of switching from two similar URL's that were mirrored to one URL 301 to the other as our primary:
I was thinking about using the address googleguy posted along with the subject line of Florida update because this does relate to the florida update - but, it's sort of a different issue and I don't want to e-mail the wrong address...
Thank you for your note.
We have confirmed that your site is still in the index and not penalized in any way. As you read on our information page, this is most likely a temporary problem which will be fixed during our next crawl.
:-) - found out my hosting company have had issues a month ago that have effected me.
