Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
The only reasosn I can think of are:
1) Google glitch... the pages "caught a cold"
2) They turned up the nobs on dupe content way too tight to where you can't even "quote" other sites/content.
3) There is some sort of over-optimization pentaly (i.e. too high % of keywords or overuse of similar phrases in metatags and <h1> tags etc.
Have any of you got your internal pages zapped? When? What do you think happened?
First place I always look for a ranking issue, is with the crawl pattern & the last http response code that Googlebot (or Slurp, etc) received when making a call for that particular page.
Second, I start looking to see if any links pointing to the page were removed.
Has anyone had pages with PR go PR0 then after a change (links removed, more content added, dupe content removed, etc.) have the PR come back? What did you do... how long did it take?
But I didnt monitor my pages over the weekend, but they have pr, but were out of index, they may have lost pr during weekend.
Thing that freaked me was it was 2 of my sites, pages are kinda similar, but no where near exact. Like they list the same products, but in a different way, so thought something tripped there.
But at home now and pages are back, but maybe I'm hitting different index at home vs. work.
Strange, this is probably a datacenter that will roll out to all.
If that happens I predict I will see my toolbar pr go aswell eventually. Currently its holding. Front page is doing just fine in the datacenter that has the internal page problem.
I have seen this before, only opposit. My Home page was gone from serps(pr too), but internals were all there and had pr.
This like a reverse effect, when this has happened in the past it only effected one of my sites, not two. In addition my Home page came back to full ranking and pr within a week.
This happening to 2 of my sites gives me concern, because the content is similar. Will have to see how this pans out.....
This datacenter is one that Im out, my internal pages are gone: [22.214.171.124...]
And this one Im currently stable all internals are still in the index: [126.96.36.199...]
