1) The web site is hosted under two domain names - xyz.com and xyz.cz. Both domain names points to the same virtual server (i.e. the same IP address).
2) It's a multilingual web site, currently consisting of two language versions, English and Czech. The English version is placed in the /en/ folder, while the Czech one is in the /cs/ folder. Each language version contains a relative link to the other one on every page.
3) In the root folder there is a script that redirects either to the /en/ or to the /cs/ folder according to HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE browser header.
4) I submitted www.xyz.cz/cs/ to Czech directories and www.xyz.com/en/ to international directories. I have never submitted the root URL (www.xyz.com or www.xyz.cz) to any directory or SE, because I suppose the redirect could cause some problems.
Well, do you think that something of the above could be the reason, why the site disappeared from Google so quickly? If yes, how could I fix the problem?
I'm already helpless and I'd appreciate your advice a lot.
Try looking for your site in www2.google.com and www3.google.com. If you find it one of those, you should be ok.
It has to still be in the middle of its' indexing phase from the last deep crawl. My site went through some major re-design, showed up with the new pages for a week and dissappeared. Now the old descriptions are back for the time being.
It seems as if my site shows up in the searches after the crawl, dissapears while new calculations regarding linking and pr are taking place, only to show back up when that's complete.
I'm taking all this as a good sign and assuming it means my new site will be listed properly once Google updates. Until then I'll be happy for any fresh listing I get and look apon them as a bonus :) "Google teaser" is a good term actually.
This is a good thread on fresh listings: [webmasterworld.com...]
Does the same thing occur if your pages have already have pr rank? Better question would be, have you ever noticed an occurence that would indicate a pr rank increase, such as listing appeared and then vanished?
Also, what is your experience with where it shows up in the search during that temporary time. Is that an absolute indication of where it will be when it has finished indexing, or no relevancy to final ranking whatsoever?
Thanks in advance..
I have only seen it happen with new content. However, that content can be from a site that is already included.
>>Also, what is your experience with where it shows up in the search during that temporary time.
When it shows up, it ranks very well. But those initial rankings aren't an indication where the pages will end up ranking after their PR has been caculated.
It's really more like Yahoo's new site tag. While you have it, you are listed at the top. Once it expires, you end up mixed in with all the other listings.
When it disappeared, I checked and found that its ODP listing was gone, apparently due to a reorganization of the ODP category, and I thought this was probably the cause. The site came back, though, to roughly the same position it had held before. No idea why.
I've learned to be patient about these glitches, but this one had me scared because the ODP de-listing was an apparent cause. I've no idea whether the Google recalculation of Page Rank in fact had anything to do with the temporary drop.
I wonder if someone can help me, I had around 25 or so sites sites listed in Google, all of which had a good ranking, I have a dedicared server that hosts all sites.
I just checked on google and all sites have been dropped, they are all crossed linked, about 4 are about the same topic but the content is slightly different.
Why would they drop all my sites?
Do they sometimes drop them tempory when indexing and then relist them, this morning they was there, lunch time there all gone.
If anyone can help i would appreciate it
People here have been trying for 12 months or so to rid their domains of a penalty without much luck. The first thing I would do is unlink all your sites from one antother, get rid of the keywords and see if google takes pity with you and reenters you on the next index. Otherwise new domains is the way to go.
At the moment, while the google update is going on it is hard to see if your sites will be in the index once it has settled, give it a week and see if your sites are in then.
Just because I linked my sites together, Google has dropped all my sites, I had nearly 40 sites in total that have all gone, I visted them and the pagerank page comes up grey, is there anything I can do about this?
I never reliased that adding a few links at the bottom of a page would get me dropped.
I am holding on in hope that they will come back to google, is there no certain way I can find out if the have barred me or anything?
One site is bad enough but 30-40 is going to cost me
Thanks for all your help
And I'm afraid as it seems writing to google doesn't seem to help much, do a search here for pr0 penalty and read other peoples bad luck!
If it is grey I think (can someone confirm) that you have been dropped but it could be that your servers were down when google came to check. Or then again it could be cos of your crosslinking.
1) I am thinking of starting a affiliate program for my software but am concerned that by allowing affiliates to duplicate my site might cause me problems.
2) I have another site that has the main page selling is $ and then a complete duplicate of ths site in another directory /uk which charges in £, other than the £ and $ signs everything else is the same.
I would really appreciate someone helping me on this so i don't get in trouble.
