I hope that it's not just happening to me, but it looks like hundreds of pages were deep crawled and back to "fully indexed" status.

Anyone else noticing this?

What do you expect to happen as a result? More traffic from Google?

I've seen the same thing on one of my sites. The reinstated pages are ranking a little better than before and yes,traffic if returning.

Yessssssss. At last I do not have to look at a long URL-only list of my pages.

No change for my site.

1,300 pages indexed with 1,280 having the "no title, no description" problem.

Nothing here too :(

Ever since we changed the structure of our site (a month ago) google has dropped our description and hasn't even sent its bot back to check.

We don't know if we were uploading when the bot went for a deep crawl or if it just doesn't like the new structure.

I'm pleased for all of you who now have your site back but does anyone have any advice at all on how we can overcome this?
