What i am saying is, I have some new sites that are well SEO'd title/page and they are almost nowhere to be found. Just as a example, I would have to put in the whole title in the google search box to see the page in the serp (10 words or more) and on "alot" of pages "That" doesn't even bring up the page. Am I alone in this?andyone Have the same prob? Later.
"Could it be that your site is filtered?" "filtered"? I'm not sure what you mean by that but, i do know that the site is like 2 weeks old so i don't know whats going on but, there are enought pages in google to see "some" type of traffic which i'm not getting.
Links from PR 5+ sites. Not many pages but a useful application, used and bookmarked by the visitors that appear.
The site does not appear in the serps. Except for "www.example.com" type searches.
PR 0 - not grey but 0
No Backlinks credited
New domain name
No ODP listing - still waiting
Some similar content - but not duplicate.
The pages on which the site is linked have all been freshened since the 9th.
Anyone else? please post some stats/facts as above - maybe it will help find the common thread/causes.
I'm used to waiting a while for the SE's to pick up new sites, but am hoping for some change soon.
I've just had a new site (launched mid Feb) crawled and indexed this week, but isn't getting ANY traffic at all from Google.
It has 3-4 good PR backlinks, good internal linking structure, very clean site with plenty of content on each page.
I understand you can't expect miracles with new sites, but it should be getting a bit of traffic right?
I emailed Google who just replied with a canned reply.
Any help would be appreciated.
Site launched quite a few weeks ago, lots of links, PR of 6 but absolutly no google traffic although over 1500 pages indexed in the last 2 weeks. Wouldn't have worried in the past with the traditional google updates but something this time is making me slightly nervous.
site was entirely crawled last week, google has found every one of our pages, we also have two backlinks one from a PR4 site related to our area, and another site PR5 which is related to what we promote on te site so we've covered both sides,
i just wonder what effect this will have on us, we've totally disappered from google at the moment and the old site is still doing very well in yahoo and in msn!
its a waiting game, we waited three weeks for google to crawl, one week it didnt appear at all!
you just cant tell, so may factors to take into account you just have to do what you can not too much not too little!
What you guys might need to look at is do you have another site with a similar theme already ranking in the serps?
That would be it, to a machine the subject matter would look similar but in human terms is two totally different things. Is it a temp thing or something that will always happen?
I'm not the kind of alarmist who treats every nuance as a drastic change, but clearly something is now different about crawling/indexing behavior. Hopefully its a temporary change, because I don't see a greater indexing latency benefitting anyone.
I think it is either age based OR due to similar content.
Eg. check similar pages - do you have an existing site doing well in the serp's? That is similar to your new site?
I'm speculating that the older site (with similar content) is masking the new site... is this a common thread to sites seeing these symptons?
Putting in a 301 redirect and hoping it works out! (was worried about losing my rankings if I did this before)
[added] The latency is effecting my new sites - eg. new domains rather than new pages on existing sites [/added]
In my case, about 10 of the 100 pages have PR 4 showing in the toolbar. The other pages have PR 0 (white bar) because I think they just missed out on the recent PR / backlinks update.
Could this be the reason or is it the "real" PR which is important (ie the one we can't see )?
I have the same problem. I created new web site and launched it approximately in the end of February. At this moment about 350 links (Google has found only 4) and after update I got PageRank5. But I'm in the same situation: there is NO TRAFFIC from google. I can find my pages in SERP only entering 5-6 words contained keywords.
I think that we should wait for next Google update to be able to find our sites in Google.
