Site: search results jacked?

    My apologies if this has been brought up recently (I searched), but I'm getting some very odd results on my google site: domain results.

    Typically, when I typed in site:www.optionsbuddy.com I saw my urls listed, a majority listed as supplemental links.

    Now, not only is it showing all my links, but its showing links to some spam sites as well. Click the link above and view the last 10 or so results on the first page.

    namesdir.com/F_Kesteleyn
    cat.pelogoo.com/leoleo2002/
    twink-strip-tease-webcam.oymap.com/cams/ <-- Not work safe!!!

    Most of the links are to porn spam pages.

    Anyone else having these problems, or is it just me?

    Is there anything I can do about it?

    Should I be concerned?

    I scanned all ~300 pages in the site command, and at least for the dc I was viewing, I did not see any of those links you mentioned above. It all appeared "normal" to me based on the topic of your site.

    Thanks for the link Christopher.

    Corinaw - it seems to happen only on servers I've got 1300 pages indexed.

    this tool might help you out- It shows the number of indexed pages on google per dc. (not all dc's but a good sample) http://www.yourcache.com/

    So it looks to me like you have ~50 pages in the index and another ~200 in the supplimental index on the dc's I checked- I'd bet the 1300 is just a temporary glitch in the supplimental index, hopefully they'll get it sorted out soon.

    One other thing-

    Your supplimental problem is likely caused by the fact that google has several of optionbuddys pages indexed twice. once for optionbuddy.com, another for www
    .optionbuddy.com
    . This causes duplicate content penalties and can move your whole site into the supplemental index.

    Run the site command on optionsbuddy.com, (not www.) I see about 65 additional pages in the index, many are dup'd including your HOME PAGE. :eek:

    You can set the preferred domain in google sitemaps to fix this, set your server to do a redirect, or add this to htaccess to correct the problem-

    It doesn't matter how you fix it, but if I were you, I'd do it NOW. :)

    I got a lot of sites and I do look at their rank like that, and it happens to me also, it goes up and down and my traffic goes up and down and i really hate it, sometimes other sites steal my traffic and sometimes i do that to them lol. maybe it's just balance.

    Corinaw,

    I did set up the preferred domain in Google.

    Are you sure they are duplicate pages? Almost all of my pages are dynamic content, so even a slight variation in the querystring results in totally different content.

    Yes I am sure.

    Here is a copy paste of the serps for your site that I am calling duplicate content.

    Hi, I have this probelem as well with the www and non www pages indexed.
    and all my pages beiung supplemental.

    Its already been about a month since i set up the redirect in the .htaccess file
    and instructed google through google site map to only index the www.

    However I still have no luck. Is there anything else that can be done?
    Will contacting google some how help or do anything?

    Is it the glasses site? If so, the sup pages look to have been indexed last in May. You'll have to wait until google bot comes back for another look.

    I don't know what the "official" or even average time frame is for this to get resolved, but when I had issues with supplimental pages, it took about 6 months for the pages to come back out in the active index.
