Pages Dropping Out of the Google.com Search Index

Aug 29, 2007 - 7:52 am 3 by

A WebmasterWorld thread is reporting, in heavy numbers, that Google is returning fewer results for sites they have in their index.

What I mean is that if you do a site:www.domain.com command in Google, the number of results being returned is much lower than in the past.

This is not only being reported by one or two people, there are dozens of people reporting this in that thread.

WebmasterWorld administrator, Tedster, confirms:

One of my clients - 9 year old site - has dropped from 1,700 urls indexed to 1,300. They've never been that low in recent years.

However, many are reporting traffic to be at the same levels. So is this just a Google reporting issue or something else?
