Supplemental Results are blocking my pages, please help!

    Hello all,
    I'm completely redesigning and updating my website, as well as getting a new host, so please ignore the page's unattractiveness.

    Google's Supplemental Results. Argh. They seem to blocking my pages (how many I don't know, I haven't checked). Here's an example:

    http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&q="emblem+of+red"+grand+files&btnG=Search&meta=

    With the key phrase, and my site's name, it still only near the bottom of the list! And that's not even the page I want it to link to.

    http://grandfiles.com/games/fighting/index.html

    That is my list of games in that category.

    http://grandfiles.com/games/fighting/emblem-of-red.html

    And that is the specific page for that game. The category page is a "supplemental result" and the actual game's page isn't even coming up at all! No wonder I'm hardly getting any traffic from Google!

    Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can stop it? There are two things that I can think of, first of all the description is the same on both pages, is it getting blocked by Googles duplicate content filter? Secondly, the term "Emblem Of Red" naturally comes up a LOT on the specific page, do you think Google thinks I'm "keyword stuffing"?

    Thanks in advance for help, I just wanted to know what the problem is so I can fix it in the upcoming major redesign. Cheers!

    use site:www.yourdomain .com to see which one of your pages are in the supplemental result.

    Your pages need more content on them....

    you need more backlinks to get out them from suplemental results. the main criteria for those pages are page rank

    toinkzzz, thanks a lot for that link! I'll change the descriptions one of the two pages where they are on, install a 301 redirect in .htaccess. Plus the source code is a LOT tidier in the redesign (valid XHTML :cool:) is maybe that will help, and I'm planning on getting some better incoming links. Another thing I just thought of is to have a sitemap page on the homepage, so that those supplemental inner pages will only be two clicks away from the homepage...

    So, if I install a 301 redirect in .htaccess, pointed from non-www. to www., will all of the PageRank gained by my non-www. be transferred to the www. one? Because at the moment, my non-www has a PR of 2, whereas my www homepage has a "fake" PR of 2 (whatever that means, I got it off some site). Also, almost all incoming links at the moment are to the non-www... If I decide to change my site to "www", and install a a 301 redirect in .htaccess, will I get "real" PR for my www. homepage? A bit off topic, but I'd really appreciate any help.

    301 redirection was nice idea... do you have an account of google webmaster tools? it can be more helpful if you will indicate in the google webmaster tools your prioritized domain,, if it is with or w/o www...
