Any Idea What Is Going On With Google?
Posted 11 February 2004 - 11:54 AM
Very weird. Has anyone had a similar experience or have any idea what the hell they are possible doing over there at google? They had a great search engines and they are certainly still top dog but with this behavior I don't see how they can stay on top for long. They are reverting to outdated versions of websites.

Your front page has nice content. Your specific product pages have nice content. The problem lies in your "bridge" pages - the ones that get you from your front page down into the products.
Google crawls sites in a similar way to the way it ranks pages. If it sees lots of links to pages and there's good rankable content on the pages, it's going to be more insterested in crawling more deeply. If there's no content on the pages it encounters, there's nothing for the page to rank on in the serps. So, if the spider finds a lot of pages with no content, it'll start to assume that all the pages have no content and it'll lower it's interest level in your site.
All of your bridge pages are nothing more than just a list of links (i.e. When you click the "Computers" tab). There's not a lot of content there and search engines don't really like a page that's just a list of links, regardless of what they link to.
Every link I clicked in that computers cat brought me to a page where the only content was the line: "There are no products in this category at this time. Please check back soon." Nothing rankable there - plus it's duplicate content with about a zillion other pages on the site which brings down the value of the previous "link page" even more.
In "Cameras" though, we've got some products. So let's look there.
The main cat page is links (just like above) and a few products - but even the products are nothing more than a picture, the name, and another link. No content.
Going down into 35mm cameras (since it's one of the few cats I found with content), I found another page with links, pictures, and almost no text. Again. No rankable content.
Then, finally you get into the listing of products. Most of the ones I checked here (unlike the ones I clicked on the front page) don't have their "descriptions" intact. So, these pages that don't have descriptions and/or specs also have very little, if any, rankable content.
Hate to tell ya, but your site isn't finished. You need to get content in there, get rid of all the "Empty Cats" (if there aren't products in a category, why show it? Customers aren't going to like it, either...) You need a lot more content on your "bridge pages" too.
End of the day, Google looked at your site, decided it was "Under Construction" and will wait patiently until you've got it ready.
Hope this is helpful.
