This new year I hoped to see some improvement. Phew... it is all gone. Just two pages have title and description, rest all are without any title and description and I have as low as only 3 pages indexed in some datacenters. It is total disaster. Forget PAGE RANK, pages dropping. Can anyone help?
Or has anything like this ocurred here with anyone here today.
Phew... i just dont know what to do now. Any help?
Alltheweb still shows 50,000+ sites linking to me.
Maybe Google has just reduced the total number of sites and/or pages it crawls?
My sites are over 6 years old. They are legitimate, non-commercial, educational sites. All with high content and very little outbound links. The type of sites most search engines love.
I thought it might have just been Google is penalizing me in favor of more commercial sites, since all of this happened in the last two months, with Google under a little bit of pressure from Yahoo and MSN who are researching their own search engines.
But if this is happening to commercial sites too, I would love to hear more thoughts on the matter.
I tried to prove my point with a few search terms I had been struggling with all month, getting results for portals and small search engines, and got relevant results back.
So I tried the "shelving" "web design london" and "web design oregon" examples I had seen on many comments and got relevant results again.
Has Google fixed itself?
Not for me. But one thing that I have observed that some pages that were indexed have been reverted to old pages. I mean for site, google indexed newer version of pages, it displayed them in index and a few days back in December, it again showed cached version of pages that were dated September.
I really wonder what is going on.
My problem right now is new site, and a lot depends on it. I am just watching the pages go down. Just a watcher seeing pages sink.
And I do not know what to do, should I start all over again or wait and watch. Three months gone now since first pages were indexed and now it is worse.
