Hi There,

Is anyone noticing that 100% of the pages with the UK database have gone supplemental. I have just done a search for site:mydomain and in the normal result it show 171,000 results but when I do a UK only seach it shows 1,789,000 results all of which are supplemental. I have noticed that mysite has also dropped 20/30 places for major keywords.

Is anyone else out there seeing these crazy results.

Has this situation changed for you? It sounds really odd to me - never had such a report before, except for buggy data. I suppose it might make some sense for Google to be experimenting with location specific Supplemental indexes, but that sounds like a huge disparity.

I have the same with some of my sites.
the pages showing ok ot the "web" search are supplemental if I select the "pages from the UK"
It also shows only ONE page on the "pages from the UK" search with the option under for .... "repeat the search with the omitted results included."
The "web" search shows all pages.

Also looking at other well ranked sites that have hundreds or thousands of pages listed on "web" search and less than 10 pages on the "pages from the UK" search.
All are supps on the UK only search.

It looks a mess.

You are right. All are supplemental in "pages from UK" search. It looks like a bug to me.

Same for us. If I make a site:mysite.co.uk in Google.co.uk with the "The Web" radio selected it returns 2080 pages found. If I use the site:mysite.co.uk *** -view to view only the supplementals it returns 1740 pages. If I use the site:mysite.co.uk in Google.co.uk with the "Pages from the UK" radio selected to only view pages in the main index Google return 1740 supplemental pages and nothing in the main index. Weird, must be a bug.

Weird. I've noticed the opposite phenomenon - a site which used to do equally well in .com and .co.uk search is still ranked where it was in .co.uk but has recently totally tanked in the .com results, like #600+.

I'm seeing weird stuff on .co.uk as well.

On the .com results we rank well with other companies (all sites are pretty good, G returning good results).

On co.uk sites things are not so good. For some reason, foreign companies are listing above us when they *don't on the .com results*. Follow me? The sites are not UK based and have no UK presence.

I would have expected UK sites to rank better on google.co.uk, not worse.
