Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
While analyzing one potential cause, I am finding that for a lot of searches, obsolete "supplemental result" urls from our site are being returned above our current existing urls. Most of these old urls are those where we had changed the format of the url about 6 months back, replacing %20 in the url to underscore.
www.example.com/url%20path/a.htm - Supplemental result
Moreover, sometimes the second url (The expected one) is not even returned unless "repeat the search with the omitted results included" is clicked on.
We return the same page for the first and the second (So I am worried whether google interprets this as a duplicate), but I am assuming that since google marks the first as supplemental, it is recognized correctly that the first is obsolete (we don't have any internal links pointing to that url format anymore).
Thanks in advance for your analysis and thoughts.
