Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
tanks to gsm1,tedster and other forum members advice, after 10 weeks I recovered from almost all the supplementals, but unfortunately I'm not ranking for any competitive keyword except than the home page .
3 weeks ago I noticed that 4 other pages started ranking within the first 10 search results for they keywords. but now they are gone again.
Can this be caused becouse 3 week ago I removed the disallow routine inside the robots text and added instead the "no index -no follow tag on the page?
is the robots text disallow routine better than the no-index-no follow tag?
Having the disallow only as a meta tag allows the page to be spidered, and a copy will be held by Google. The noindex tag then stops it showing up in the SERPs. I am not so sure that you want "nofollow" on that too. Surely you do want links to other pages to be followed?
I think I'll go back to disallow the whole cgi-bin directory inside the robots.txt
and keep only the .html pages - that just recovered from supplementals - and are the only of real interest to me.
