Potential indexing problems

    I just opened my sitemaps in a long time and I found this:
    Well I haven't made any changes on the structure of any of my sites. On the help it says that G has problems reading some of my pages fully. I don't know why. There is nothing wrong with my pages.

    In case there was another thread that I overlooked please point me in the right direction.
    Otherwise I was wondering if any of you see a similar thing.

    I don't use sitemaps, but I have to ask, are your files are over 100K in size?
    Google may not index those pages fully.

    I get the same 'partially indexed' message with one site, but that is a site that has problems (i think) from being an expired domain name that I bought. They reincluded it in the index, but only the home page, they crawl it regularly, and they adamantly refuse to index the rest out (despite my following good advice from NetMidWest and others).

    Hope your problem isn't the same. Perhaps they just don't like travel and regional type sites!

    (Nice site by the way, bit of a shame France is missing :confused:)

    Also have the same.

    index is dropping fast for me too.

    50% of the indexed pages dropped out of the index since the last few weeks. Don't know why they had no problems before.

    I guess it will return in a few weeks

    We are talking about partially indexed pages, right?

    De-indexing or non-indexing of a site's pages would be a different problem...
    If you want the latest on that you can read the Matt Cutts Gives Insight To Bigdaddy thread. There are known issues with Google, such as problems with hyphenated domains, that can cause de-indexing and lack of inclusion in the serps.

    For Partially Indexed pages they say:

    But I have 'partially indexed' message, and none of these reasons apply, and its presumably the same for others. Net result seems pretty similar to de-indexing/non-indexing, but without being banned first.

    i too am facing the same "partially indexed" issue.

    I was wondering, can the hyphenated deindexing thing also be applied to individual pages rather than just the domain name? I mean if the name of a page is "xxx-xxxx-xxxx-05.php", could it get deindexed or penalised in some way?

    Thanks for all the replies.
    I have noticed that about 50% of my pages fell out of the index.
    I don't think that I have pages above 100k (bytes or words, don't know what you meant).
    Strangely I have never head problems before.
    I am using Drupal (CMS), which is known for its google friendlyness. I have clean urls enabled and every site is linked somehow (no dead pages). Everything is machine readable. I had all pages indexed before (and still do on yahoo).

    I was just wondering if any of you had found out why this happens. As I said, everything was good until recently.

    The hyphen problem seems to have been solved, it may take some time to show for everyone.
    I cannot see how it would not have affected filenames as well.
