.... [cnn.com...] as retrieved on Oct 25, 2004 05:13:43 GMT....So that means we crawled, indexed, pushed, and are serving a page that we fetched earlier today.
Note though: that doesn't mean that the page was created that day, just that we refreshed our copy of the page at that particular time.
The 1st of October, uploaded a 50 page catalog. Googlebot retrieved on Oct. 8 and am now showing up on the first page of searches for many relevant terms. Some searches have me at number 1 and 2.
I have 15,000 other related pages, but have not cross linked yet and have no external links that I can find.
I did know what market I was going after and wrote the pages to maximize for relevant terms, but was surprised by the results.
I've also noticed lately that the advice to write your text for the searcher not for the SE doesn't work anymore, if it ever did. The top pages in my area are some of the worst examples of keyword stuffing I've seen. Keywords repeated 14 times in two paragraphs. Totally unreadable. So, with this catalog, I stuffed a few myself and it appears to be working.
I guess it has something to do with PHPnuke (cms system), but i haven't been able to find a solution. Some say it is because i have id's in my urls, other people say that has no influence...
Status: After 3 months, and alot of visits by googlebot, i am not indexed at all!
