Supplemental results? – Gone mainstream

SEO Tutorials | August 1st, 2007 | 2 Comments

Yesterday (Tuesday 31st July 2007) Prashanth Koppula product manager and Matt Cutts Software Engineer announced that Supplemental results will go in mainstream. The announce was on the Google webmaster central blog.

Many webmaster’s would complain about their pages ending in supplemental results and I also wrote back in May how to help your pages not to end in supplemental results where i was discussing mainly about WordPress bloggers, and many other SEO’s have talked about this.

Two days ago if you would go on google.com and type site:yoursite.tld you would be able to see the pages that are not on supplemental results and those that were in supplemental results would have a note “Supplemental result” in green color next to the URL of your site. Today, if you write the same command you will have no clue which are supplemental results and which are not.

You can read more on supplemental goes mainstream at the Google webmaster central blog.

    I was amazed today although i didn’t talk to my webmaster yet but what i saw that my site was out of supplemental and not only mine but others also. I just got amazed as what is the reason. So i searched over net and finally got result that they have removed that sup. res. from google.
    Now how will i know which page google is reading and which not??

  2. Google is actually reading all the pages, and it used to read all the pages (even those marked in Supplemental results) the thing about supplemental results is that Google gives less weight to those pages for one or more reasons (a). the page does not have enough (or none) backlinks b). the page is a duplicate content). With some backlinks pointing to the page and a nice in-site linking structure you would be able to tell Google that the page deserves some weight and the content can be useful for the people.

    As for the moment, there is no way (at least that i know) that you can check which pages of your website have more or less weight.
