There are no problems with my domain name and even Google has confirmed this via e-mail.
Why, after 6 months does my site still have no rank at all in the directory?
It's frustrating because if it was ranked it would be near the top of the list.... *grumble* :(
At one point, someone suggested that G update its directory on a more regular basis, as to avoid large shakeups for G SERPs, but that has not happened.
So, we wait.
I DID in fact wait for a directory update. Some new sites appeared, and STILL my site just sat there unranked.
That's what I don't get. It's not like an update hasn't happened, unless the appearance of new sites isn't the same as an update?
The G Directory is not updated in a single update.
From what I may, or may not have learned lurking around here. Anyone Feel free to correct this if I missed anything, or listed these out of order. I think it goes something like this.
Step 1. Google Imports A RDP Dump from the ODP.
New sites added to the ODP will be added to the G directory, and sites that were removed from the ODP, are removed from the G Directory. New Sites will be displayed in the G directory listed at the bottom of the default sort by Page Rank, with no page rank bar alongside the URL.
Step 2. Google Directory Search Is Updated.
Sites are added & removed from the G Directory Search Function. (Seperate Search From Normal G SERPs, Directory Only Results), and the listing of the Catagory Of The New Sites Will Also Show Up From the Directory in both the Normal G Serps & the G Directory Search.
Step 3. Page rank is looked at & a PR bar is given, or updated in the G Directory, and the new sites that were listed without a PR bar will be given their placement in the default PR sort for the cat.
This is what I may, or may not have picked up around here.
Edited to add, these steps DO NOT occur at the same time.
