Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
The site's been gone for around 3 months now and I was working on the assumption that it'd sort itself out.
The site has been 100% legit for 3 months now. Previously I did have a big affiliate shopping section bolted on, but only selling highly relevant equipment. Strangely all these pages are still included in Google as Supplemental pages even thoug they return a 404.
Anyway, any ideas what's going on as it's beyond me and I can't get anything out of Google.

Can someone tell me what is going on here? IS google technology broken or what?
Last update Site #2 Home Page disapeared, TPR disapeard, this is only for Home Page. Then a day or 2 later individual pages started to go bye bye, along with TPR. Meanwhile site #1 perfect no losses.
Now Site #1 doing same exact thing. Home Page gone from serps, no TPR nothing. Other pages have PR and are in serps. I have a feeling I'll watch each page one by one drop out, then all come back like site #2 did.
Thats what happened in the last update, and that whats happening now, I feel the "Update" is on now or iminant.
Question for the more seasoned SEO's:
Has Google in past history ever done a PR, BL and ALGO change all in the same week? Doesn't seem likely but I was curious.
They never ever have dates below them, even though they are spidered dailly and the cached pages are fresh as well. In addition the #1 site for instance if you typed in "Widgets" it has a seperate line below the serp saying "blue widgets" "green widgets" "red widgets" and each of those widgetrs below my serp is a link to an internal page in the site selling the widgets, its strange, and no other sites in the serps I watch has this.
I believe that my sites are in a more permanant index, hence they never ever have dates while the other sites in the serps do. So I think Google has a index within the index.... If I'm right my site will come back, suffer for a week prolly. Meanwhile we will have another Update XXXXXXX thread going and part 2 and part 3 like last time.
As to this morning I still see different sets of serps through out the DCs. Especially one set where site #3 drop out of top 10, for my testing keyphrases related to advertising and marketing.
Therfore...its not over yet ..Folks.
Was it the start of an update? I really donīt know. But if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck..... ;-)
I though this was considered as spam as well and controled by search engines but with little incoming links (other than their own sub domains) this SEO company managed to rank all sub domains on the 2 first pages og Google...with a PR0
Am I missing something or they will get caught quickly? Or is it an ethical behavior...not sure what Google (and actually MSN) are doing right now....?
