Seo questions and POV
I’d be interested in discussing the Supplemental Index in light of the tag being removed and the effect it has on sites that are in areas that do not attract a lot of links.
I had a call last night from someone over the moon because he was no longer in sup’ hell ! Had to break the tag removal news to him.
On another note, I think the change in direction of your site is excellent – I find it now the most interesting and informative of the SEO type blogs. I know it must be time consuming for you but I believe worth it as sites like WMW etc now feel like a thing of the past.
All the best from Lincolnshire
Hi Rod, I think it makes it hard for poeple that can’t identify what is in the reall index and what’s not.
On the downside you will get some SEO’s saying that if clients can’t complain about it then we don’t have to fix it, Me I like to know what pages are Supplemental so I can fix them.. like
Search Google for Why I Love Danny Sullivan now if My page wasn’t in supplemental I would still rank for that lol.
my page in the supplemental index :
The Top 50 Pages before this Post :
Link to Image of Top 50 results
and for good measure a link to the why I love Danny Sullivan, So before you take on a SEO to work on your site maybe you should ask can you still Identify what in Supplemental.
Is google now weighing heavily towards root level pages on old domains in the serps?
Or am I just paranoid.
P.S. Is there a Googleholics Anonymous I can join? Because I dont stop thinking about ranking in only this search engine? I need saving!
Kinda PaulK think more on the Lines of Trust, Authority and “Universal Search Signals”, your not paranoid. Googleholics Anonymous NO lol
To blog, or not to blog, that is the question; Whether one should jump on the trend of an industry related blog or not.
It seems every new comer into this industry starts with a blog that is related to this industry. Most if not all of these are train wrecks of misinformation and lost souls.
Me, I blog because I like to share and it seems a good medium to do that on. I read 100+ blogs and make to my own mind on Truth or Not, misinformation and lost souls Bloggers tend to lose their readership.
