Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
However, for those who are affected by canonical issue, I see on all DCs my homepage at the top when run command site:
And I know, GG replied when I asked him about the same, that they list pages in random when run site: . However, it isn't random for my site anymore (regarding homepage at top of site:)
I'm tempted to celebrate but give the fast that my former #1 site dropped off the radar back in september means all I can do for now and maybe forever is hold my breath :-(
How could those rich north americans afford that? and then they take soon a X-Mas holiday too. Can you imagine?
Furthermore those american always sleep at the wrong times while we in Europe work :-)

This is inner level page with PR3... index page has a PR4. The content on this page is puerly relater to keyword phrase we use...
Result: doesnt appear in the top 30 pages
Site is not blacklisted...
site does get listed for some other key words... any particular reason for this to happen?
There is something I can't figure it out. I have pages with low competition, basically if you would create a page on topic you should rank in top 20.
What I do not understand is why for some of my site pages I rank and for some is impossible to rank even in top 100?
I am talking about pages with almost no competition.
we are on pages 5 and 6 for most things, but once you whittle it down to .co.uk, then results within uk it's so much more positive.
we seem to be re-couping our positions, but, im not counting those chickens yet!
In the sectors we watch we see far to much of this issue since Google tweaked the Algo for the J3 roll out. Just prior to this at J2 the results were fine.
I see some good results but mixed into them are old directory and old non relevent sites that need removing to clean the serps up
I mentioned this point earlier. When I check the google.co.uk IP in firefox and use the IP I have slightly different results than when I type in google.co.uk . The results I get by going directly to google.co.uk do not match any of the datacentres, regardless of whether I choose world or UK only sites.
i found this too, if i search using my G toolbar i get one set, then i go to that data centre its all different.
my site performs better when i search through my G toolbar, and when i search direct from the DC we are down a few pages.
which is better than last week when our results were no where to be seen.
