Dropped by Google

Post by bigmallrat »

Hi,
Last week, 80% of my site suddenly dropped out of Google. The missing pages are no longer indexed. Google Sitemaps doesn't report any problems. I thought it may be a temporary fluke and the pages would soon reappear. However, now Yahoo has done the same. Nearly all of my pages have dropped there, too.
Any ideas on what may have happened? I haven't changed anything.
It's frustrating to suddenly have no visitors.
Thanks,
Scott

See my post a few down on the list - 72 views but no responses.

I haven't noticed a change in Yahoo! but Google did definitely make some major change.

My site used to consistently come up on the first page of Google search results when doing a search for LAS VEGAS PHOTOS. Now it doesn't come up at all, or so far down I haven't found it yet.

However, if you search with quotes around the search terms, I come up in the same place I used to.

My site has about 2,500 photos of Las Vegas and an individual .htm page for each one, so it is probably the most relevant site on the Internet to someone looking for Las Vegas photos. I only know of one other site that may have more Las Vegas photos posted for free viewing than mine.

So in my opinion Google has majorly screwed up their search results. That opinion being based on if someone is looking for photos of Las Vegas, a site with over 2,500 on-topic photos does not come up; but a whole bunch of off-topic stuff like sites that sell travel and hotel reservations do come up.

I'm coming up #19 on Yahoo, #3 or #4 on MSN.

My situation may not be an accurate reflection of search results though because there are millions of web pages related to Las Vegas. Google's new algorithm may place position #4,000 as high or "very relevant" when you consider that right now Google gives 163,000,000 hits on the search terms LAS VEGAS PHOTOS. But who's gonna scroll through 400 pages of search results?

I tried the AdWords thing last year, it brought me more traffic but didn't generate any more sales.

Google is continuing to de-index my pages. 2 more now. Only 18 are indexed (out of 90ish). Yahoo has picked up 16 pages, so maybe its a temporary situation with them. Google is killin' me!

Hi,
No, I haven't changed anything. I checked Google this morning and they've re-indexed 10 pages. What's come back on Yahoo has done so, but now rate very poorly. Google must just be doing something. They mustn't realize the devastation to visitors and thus revenue they can cause.

That's not very pleasant, but I think that it was really Google doing something. TRy to keep doing everything you did before (I mean soe, ppc or what it was)

That's weird usually what happens is your move down about for a week then your up higher then what you were but your situation doesn't sound like that. I would submit a site map like stated above then check the information when it scans your site see if there any errors and such.

were you by chance using black hat tactics ?

Are you sure that you were completely out of google or just not ranking high?

The problem could possibly caused by server. The time google and yahoo happened to reach your site, it's down.
