My fellow linking master buddy pal named Andy Hagans has a great post about escaping Google’s supplemental index.
“What exactly is that supplemental index again?”
I won’t parrot the quasi-official Google answer here. (In fact, I can promise that I will never give you the “official Google answer” on Tropical SEO.) Take your pick:
The Google Supplemental index is the Siberian work camp for web pages.
The Google Supplemental index is to the normal index, as Scoreboard Media is to Tropical SEO.
The Google Supplemental index is where they put web pages with little trust.
The Google Supplemental index is where they put web pages that aren’t going to rank for anything important.
Got it? Cool.
So, here’s a few of the tips to get your website out of the Google Supplemental Index:
– Give each page a unique title
– Give each page a unique META DESCRIPTION
– Make sure each page has a good amount of unique content
By the way, it just so happens that when I decided to “blogify” this site, a lot of the initial posts went immediately into the “Google Supplemental Index” and I had to take Andy’s advice to get these posts out and into the organic search results.
The tips above should definitely help, but these SEO tips are only half the story: You’ll have to go here and read the rest of the post.
Oh, by the way, Aaron Wall also has a great post about getting out of the Google Supplemental index as well. So, you should be able to get some good info about getting out of the Google Supplemental Index from those two posts combined.
