Today I was checking a new site which I have been trying to optimise.

Almost all of the pages for this site are still in the supplemental index, and I have been trying to get more links to these pages to get some search engine traffic.

To my delight I now see that none of the pages are now tagged as supplemental… or those of any other site I check!

A couple of weeks ago, Hamlet Batista wrote a post on getting out of the supplemental index and made reference to the fact that Google were considering removing the supplemental result tag.

If the results I am looking at are anything to go by, they have done just that!

Whether this affects different data centers or whether it is is a permanent change beyond my knowledge, but the tags are definitely not visible from where I am sitting.

I have also noticed that my page rank statistics are not available in Webmaster Central, so perhaps this is just a temporary glitch caused by the pending PR update?

I would be interested to hear anyone else’s thoughts on this, do these results normally disappear during PR updates???

    The PR update is a good bet for the source of the problems.

    Supplemental Index? It’s enough to put the matter on unique content (random generated 40%, for e.g. ;) )

    I’ve just found that tool, hope you will enjoy it too Jeremy. It checks PR on 300 data centers :mrgreen: http://www.wirank.com/en/

    Very cool… regards random content, I have built sites using that and some of them rank ok, but its a dangerous game if the sites are monetised. Entire networks of sites are being banned from Google and Adsense…. I have taken down my “experiments” in this area….

    Just do a research and find out what SEOs do on most popular sites with music lyrics. There are a few methods that are 100% safe for use :cool:
