Google Update Sucked, How was it for you
OK, let’s do a quick list of things that may upset some Webmasters :
Pagerank Drop: My Instant Messenger hasn’t stopped today with people saying things like “Honest Dave I haven’t done anything wrong yet I have dropped PageRank”. Don’t worry ME TOO. I was a PageRank 6, now I’m a PageRank 5 it seems pretty epidemic PR went down for most.
New Pages didn’t get indexed: Me Too again, we changed the structure on DavidNaylor.co.uk, and added our contact page into the pages section and created the SEO Services page which linked to search engine optimisation, pay per click management and search engine marketing pages.
Of course the links and pages have been around for 3 months but NO Google indexing, but it’s the contact one that hurts the most I guess, it should rank for contact David Naylor at least lol.
To me it looks like that page has been hand removed. But why? I’m lucky. Even with that page excluded from the index I still rank for my contact details. Other pages that have suffered the same fate have dropped 8 or 9 pages in the rankings with no reason for those pages to be removed. No link buying had occurred ( in-fact no link building).
This is worrying, most people that have been in contact today and yesterday feel they have done nothing wrong. Yet in Google their sites have dropped. The fact that they were so scared that Google would do this made them stop link building altogether and watch over the last 3 -4 months their competitors that are link buying slowly overtake them.
