Supplemental Results: Totally Gone For Sure?
Posted 12 January 2009 - 02:07 PM
Search Engine land had a work-around to see if your pages were still in Supplemental results. It doesn't seem to work anymore so I'm assuming that we can believe Google that Supplemental is gone. Does everyone else agree?
I'm asking because a new client has over 40,000 page and only 3,000 are listed and I wanted to see if they were stuck in supplemental-purgatory :0
Here's Danny's article for reference: http://searchenginel...lts-label-11830

Jill: Thanks Jill, but is there a way to find pages liked in the Supplemental Results?

For what it's worth, the rule of thumb for getting out of the Supplemental Results Index remains what it was two years ago: get more value-passing links to pass enough PageRank so that Google fully indexes the page.
Supplemental pages may still be crawled less often than Main Web Index pages, although Google has said it is trying to increase crawling for the Supplemental Results Index.
It may be more useful and less confusing to the SEO community if we think in terms of "pages that are performing well" versus "pages that are not performing as desired". While I disagree with Google's dropping of the Supplemental Label, I cannot force them to restore it. All I can do is look at the differences between "pages that perform well" and "pages that don't perform as desired".
So we can speak about Underperforming Pages and say that, if we have taken every reasonable step to ensure the on-page factors are optimized, then all that remains are the most important off-page factors (crawling, indexing, and valuation).
