More SEO Content
Posted 28 February 2004 - 12:36 PM
I recently revamped a web site of mine, adding more content.
Now whenver I check to see whether Google has indexed my pages I get varying results. One day, 13 pages will be indexed, then a few days later it will be back to 7, then back up to 18.
Has anyone else experienced this trend?

How are you searching to see the numbers changing? I always use allinurl: because it seems to be the most accurate.
It's also possible that you may be seeing different datacenters each time you look, which will give you different numbers as the site is re-indexed. If that's the case, time will cure the problem once all of the DC's get sync'd with your additions.

I've always kept a little journal for stuff like this and checking back to the last site I did (Spring of 2003) my own SEO/SEM on and some older stuff, my notes and timeframes are pretty much identical. New stuff gets picked up and listed within 2 days for an existing site and 6 days for a brand new site. Pages vanish for a day or four, then come back. Things stabilize when the next update kicks in. (Should be one coming in a couple of weeks or so, if my math is correct).
Anyway, the point here is that this is all pretty nornal. I wouldn't worry. Sure it's frustrating, but - it's a heck of a lot better than it was even 18-20 months ago where it would take a month to find your site and another month to crawl and index it.

Thanks for the replies.
I also use the allinurl: command to check which pages are indexed. And guess what? It's back down to 6. LOL.
I guess I'll just have to wait for that next update to kick-in Grumpus, or I may well end up kicking something in myself!

I now find myself going through my posts here (and elsewhere) where my common theme in areas such as this is always "Patience, Patience, Patience" and I'm thinking, "Boy, what a head that Grumpus guy is!" even though I know I'm right.
Usually, I dread updates because the forums fill up with dozens of the same old "I've dropped out of Google!" and "What's Happening With Google???" posts where its the same old questions with the same old answers over and over. For the first time in a year, I'm actually looking forward to those posts because I know that that's when my new site will appear.

And one more thing Google has not updated some pages which it took from our client sites 2 weeks ago, It comes regularly takes those pages but many are not yet updated in the results,
I am not sure what is happening in google, Also I had not seen Backlinks update for a 2 to 3 weeks, Probably a minor update going on, that is what i got from the Google people, Recently I had a back and forth email transaction with google, these Google people are very quick to respond when we praise them,
My first mail was a spam report with a praise for google and their quality of results they responded for it in a week saying they had forwarded the site for their engineers to look, then I replied them talking about the excellent service they provide, within 1 hour I got a reply from them indicating my name and they are very happy about the feedback i gave on the recent update,
Again I replied them saying I want to see Google on top for atleast 2 more years, They replied sending me one google News letter URL telling me to join to get info on the updates I joined it, like this it went on for 3 to 4 mail transaction,
So from what I see these Google people are always checking the mails regularly but are responding only to positive feedbacks, It was fun talking to them,

If Google worked perfectly, indexed your pages on a daily basis (guaranteed) and provided perfect results, what would we then moan about? The weather - oh sorry, I forgot, most of you won't even be able to do that!
