Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
When I search with the "domainnameonly" it even shows up with a title and description in the results. When I search for the "domain(space)name" it also shows up 1st page.
There is a www.flashpage that is indexed and when I query "domainnameonly" the url shows w/o "www" it is only "domainname.com"
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
Sorry if this is confusing, also didnt know where else to post tried the new topic didnt work!
You may have a busted Toolbar on your hands. From time to time there are problems when you download the TB from Google. Just uninstall it and reinstall a fresh version from Google here:
There could also be a bad/down datacenter listed for toolbar queries. (I am not sure how to check that, with your hosts file I think)
Also if you ran any software that does automated queries to Google? (Link partner finders, rank checkers, etc.)If you query Google too much, too fast, you will get your IP banned. (If this is the case try connecting via a proxy server and see if the results are different)
How come when I click on the link, I get a connection refused message?
It's because your Mom installed NetNanny after she discovered the sites you've been visiting in her browser history. Try using a PC at the library.
On a serious note, I want to point out that although more competition is always appearing, in the form of other commercial sites, there are also new users constantly getting new internet access.
In addition, people who used to be restricted to part-time dialup are increasingly gaining access to always-on broadband. My niece from rural newfoundland told me they have a cable modem now.
This means not only can they spend more time surfing the web, but also that whatever time they do spend is spent more productively, rather than drumming their fingers in boredom while our pages download.
Over any short period of time there will be peaks and valleys, but I feel confident in predicting that the long-term news will be good for all of us.
I've used all these pretty reliably. I'm not sure if the pagerank query protocol was published or reverse-engineered, but I've seen source code for one tool and it's not very complex. Basically you calculate a hash of a url, then send the hash and the url together to a particular server at google, and it replies with a numeric string ranging from 0 to 10.
If you're using the google toolbar with explorer, you'd be better off getting firefox and a plugin. I know google has some tools that only work with explorer. Restrict your use of explorer to the times when you need to use those tools.
You suggest I go through a proxy server, but I don't even know what it is, let alone how to connect via a proxy server. Can you please show me?
"it is most likely because the PageRank feature is incompatible with some aspect of your system. Often, users who work behind a firewall or proxy encounter this problem."
Unfortunately, we do not have a solution to pass along at this time. Our Toolbar engineering team is investigating this issue, and we hope to release an improved version of the PageRank feature in the future. In the meantime, we would recommend that you disable PageRank by performing the steps below:
1. Click on the "Options" button on your Toolbar.
2. Un-check the box next to "PageRank display."
3. Click "OK."
Sorry maria - wish I could help more - try toolbar forum
It's a handy tool that gathers the toolbar PR from a load of datacentres. It's only useful during an update so trying it now will let you see which datacentres are updated and which are lagging behind.
Does anyone know if orphaned pages will count against you if you leave them floating around if google knows/knew they exist?
The pages are non-related links pages which I opted to dispense with. (although now re-instating them)
Can you be penalised if you are seen to orphan links pages in this way?
I cant prove it because you never get two pages exactly the same on your site to give an exact science but on one of our sites a number of internal pages got PR5s and others got PR3s. The pages in question were structed in a similar way with equal numbers of outgoing links and similar numbers of incomming links in a similar site position. The PR3s pages were added at a later time to the PR5s - by about 3 months apart.
To prove how INSANE whatever is going on is, my index page dropped a @#%#!@ point, yet my "main" page stayed the same, and NO ONE links to my main page! Now how can a page that has no incoming links stay the SAME and even have a HIGHER PR than a page that has ~a thousand incoming links!?
Furthermore, how can I drop a PR spot when G is now showing MORE backlinks that it previously did?! It is still only showing about 25 links (up from only 17) when it should be showing about a thousand! I guess link:MyDomain.com is still broken as well.
I think G started this PR crap to just to form a "cult of PR junkies".
I see some mentioning PR has something to do with G SERP's, then others (as I've mostly seen here an other threads as well), say PR has nothing to do with G-SERP's. Someone please give the defintive answer on that. There are non-relevant PR0 sites that are appearing waaaaay above me in the G SERP's. So, this would indicate PR has no bearing on G SERP's.
