Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
However, when checking the site:comand on 'uk only' just out of curiosity to see how many pages were indexed i saw the 'Your search - site:domain.co.uk - did not match any documents'
The weird bit is that on 'all the web' G.co.uk it returns 18 pages. This isn't only on this newish domain name either, I've checked numerous sites (one's been up 5 years) that belong to me and are on UK hosts, I've also checked sites belonging to others that i know are uk registered and uk hosted and I'm seeing the same thing, pages returned on all the web but nothing on uk only
I can't comment on whether this is related to the drop in rankings since it is something I have only just noticed. Not sure how it could be related. Maybe it's just a Google quirk?
The funny/strange thing is, the UK results that showed up until a few days ago was canonicaly damaged, the site does have valid 301 non-www to www and index is sorted too all nav is to full URL's and the site shows up in the correct order with site: tool on the web results.
The root/ was there but in 4th place behind some other root pages but also behind some very deep content, 4 directories deep.
All sites are .co.uk and hosted in the UK, 2 sites are .org.uk and hosted in the US, same problems, on one of the sites I added about 30 pages, within days they were performing well then bam, all supplemental and MIA in the UK search.
I was suprised nobody (until now) has mentioned this, its been ongoing for around 4 weeks, that's when I first noticed the problem, and it doesn't seem to fit in with the other currently discussed filtered/penalised threads.
How long can it last?
Also no supplementals are showing for .co.uk but they are on .com. Also a page count difference of some 30k pages.
Anybody else seeing this?
