Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Anybody else see anything strange?
My pages lost about 80% of their traffic about 10 days ago or so. Nov 16/17 I noticed a few terms popping back into the top three positions...
Hope it continues to gets better...
Nobody else had any problems?
I haven't gotten out of supplemental yet but everything seems to be moving in a very positive direction.
Since my last post regarding this "site:mydomain.com" now has over 2260 indexed all supplemental.
I am seeing more and more searching being pulled from the supplemental when someone on main index is doing a search that matches close to my keywords.
Here is the kicker, almost all my results on the main index come from the search "onebox" Google results. Which is fantastic!
I can only imagine what kind of traffic my site would create only if google lets me out of the supplemental index.
After all my tweaking Google appear's to like what I have done....but I still believe that they also take into effect the age of the website which is holding me back as well.
I hoping by spring they will cut me loose and let me play with the big boys!
Hopefully they will remain, but knowing Google.. well.. I would give it a few weeks to be certain of what sites have been released and which ones might be getting put back in.
It's a site about a traffic project while my field is in spiritual practice that's often done cross-legged (to avoid using the term itself).
Even weirder, the site shows in the results as "Site Temporarily Unavailable." The cache shows the same thing. Archive dot org shows it as having had the same status back in February.
Yahoo shows only 42 links to this dead site, from about 7 sites. The search term in question isn't even in any of the links to the site in question, which seems only to have had two pages.
I just don't get how Google can mess up so badly.
Indeed, whatever you call it - data push, refresh, update - something is brewing. The results are all over the place and that means traffic is down for some and up for other domains that I manage.
Like so many of these in 2006, we just need to ride it out without doing anything stupid.
Seeing indications of a massive update - 90% of the pages are evidently removed from Google right now based on the numerical results for major keywords - which usually indicates a big weekend shuffle - single keywords that usually return 300 mill results are returning less than 30 million
Yeah another data refresh today. [Dec2]
Exactly - by my count, that makes two SERP changes since this thread started, so it's not likely that future posts will all be talking about the same changes at Google. Instead having what will amount to a "junk drawer" thread that just wanders around, it's time to lock up.
