Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Around 3 months ago the site:URL command in Google showed around 15,000 pages for our site, since then this figure has been gradually reducing and is now at around 3,000.
Traffic is also going down on a regular basis even though our PR has increased (so we can't have been penalised).
We have used the Google webmaster tool to analyse the crawl stats and the results follow;
Errors for URLs in Sitemaps: 0
HTTP errors: 0
URLs not followed: 0
URLs restricted by robots.txt: 0
URLs timed out: 0
Unreachable URLs: 0
As you can see there are no implications with the crawl process, so why is this happening? Does Google not show ALL pages indexed on a site?
Many thanks in advance, this really has got us stumped.
The site consists of 000's of pages, it is not possible to secure links to all of these pages as most are product pages (not permanent pages). We are of course building links into the site, starting with the main category & sub-category pages.
