Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I am a bit confused with this one and would like to know if anyone has seen this before. Apologies if this is going over old ground but I can't find anything on this.
I thought that one of my sites has been hit with a penalty quite recently.
Checked in google for the
At first they showed up on page 5, which would suggest that the site has received a penalty.
However, sometimes the site shows in position 1 if I click the search twice. The first click and the site is nowhere to be seen.
When the site does show in pos 1, Google does not list the file size and no link to the cache.
Has anyone seen this before?
I checked on Aol search and got very different results, with the page in question not showing up until page 7. I have had some difficulty with this page which may have been due to a coding error. It took over a month for it to appear in the serps but it is for an extremely popular title in my arena.
I'm not sure what is going on. This happened three weekends ago and the page has now stabilized, settling between postions #8 and #12. Occasionally I find it at #4. Maybe it was part of an experiment.
