Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
Im clueless to why your blog was deleted, maybe Matt is just fed up with this problem :s which isn't the best course of action to take.
And I have no idea whatsoever what to do about those problems, hopefully the aftermath and a huge crawl may sort it out.
Theres more to life than Google ppl :D
Anyway back to subject, I guess theres still no news on when Jagger will go home :s lol
It is hard to have an update thread without discussing this situation.
99%* of sites that have been hit in this update, Bourbon, Algera and even the un-named update in December and November last year seem to suffer from this problem.
* Ok - cant back up that figure
>>>> maybe Matt is just fed up with this problem
Arent we all.
If only Google could set some guidelines about how to help prevent it, maybe the big G doesn't know what causes it?
So many possibilities, but hey, I can only speculate :(
16,700 results for site: domain.com
629 results for site:domain.com
647 results for allinurl:domain.com
14,200 results for link:domain.com
We are so buried in the serps that we may as well be dead. Before 9/22, we were on top. Jagger has us down about 85%. Time may be on Mick's side, but we've got mouths to feed!
Open to any and all form of clues.
If someone has a solution for hire, please send a sticky.
It's been a long time since I've read good members such a Dayo_uk getting this mad, If 'G' don't listen they'll be about as popular as AltaVista ;-)
any tips? solutions?
My english site, basically the same but in english has less 301 (as not as old as the German site) only took a 33% hit. The main difference is that I didn't change the directory structure and it has therefore nearly no 301's.
I see my main competitor has changed his favicon to one similars to us.. Copying is the sincerest form of flattery ..
Maybe it's a favicon issue.. ... (obviously not ment seriously)
What logic was it that you removed the ability to see other domains from a personal site:ourdomain.com search , when its not a fix of the situation, was it to hide something or cant you fix this, why should we help with spam reports and coments, when you dont give anything back, I will advise you to listen to some of the comments here, you have a REALY big competition next year.
I think Google are a hip and trendy company
G *were* a hip and trendy company, when they were a small start up with an honest mission. Now they're Google Inc working for shareholders that are demanding returns on their investment, especially over the xmas shopping season. With all due respect Dayo, you may as well bang your head against a brick wall, your problem is seriously way down their priority list! SERP tweaks these days are designed to increase Adwords revenue not please WW members :-(
It's all going a bit like TV, more about filling time and less and less content.
Hey have you not seen the hostile takeover bid from UK TV to takeover G. ;)
If we're talking relevance ... There will probably be a take over bid by mindcap ;-)))
I would not believe a company would be that short sighted - more and more sites are going missing - Google need to fix it for there own good. (IMO)
And it is not my problem - it is Googles ;)
