Supplemental Results for TOTALLY original and Valuable Content

Discussion in 'Google' started by thundercow, Jun 11, 2007.

    I am mystified. I am a lawyer, and I wrote a series of self-help incorporation books. As part of the support of the books, I have a website (which I am not allowed to post--i do NOT want to get banned here)...and on the site I have 50 pages with one table each--one table for each of the 50 states. Each table is a summary of the Corporation Law, LLC Law and Tax law for each individual state. I WROTE it, it's totally original, and no one else on the web has it--they'd better not. All but 5 of the 50 pages went into the supplemental index immediately. This content will help people and is totally orginal. Now, I have pretty much just given up on google.
    SEMrush
    I did everything I was supposed to do, and I still got boned by the supplemenal index.

    I'd love any input on what I have done wrong. I can't include a link here so if you want to see a sample of the page I am talking about just google the following phrase WITH the quote marks:

    "Oklahoma Corporation Law, LLC Law, and Tax Guide"

    and it's the second result, the supplemental result that comes up. THe site is learnaboutlaw...

    Increase your number of incoming links to the site.

    Do you mean incoming links to the site, or to the supplemental index pages?

    I would include unique meta description and keyword tags on these pages but that's not the main reason the pages are supplemental

    You just need some deep link to these pages to get them out of the supplemental. Can you get some sites to link directly to these pages.

    Is the only link you have to the page coming from this page?
    learnaboutlaw.xxx/sitexxx.htm

    This is a page with 200 links on it. Your "Oklahoma Corporation Law, LLC Law, and Tax Guide" page will not look important in the eyes of Google if the only incoming link is coming from this page.

    Little too much duplicated content on your site. run thru copyscape.
    competing with ezinearticles on your own content.
    I would rewrite articles you send to ezinearticles.com to make unique, before putting them on your site.

    With that old of a domain could be authority site. Nice name, too!!

    Dupe content does not cause supps.

    Create multiple index pages pointing to the subpages, like tables of contents or mini sitemaps. Try to break it down so that each one of those has no more than about 40 links on each if you can. Sitewide link to those, maybe in footer links (if I could see the site I might be able to give more specific advice on how to do that bit).

    Then create some natural link bait that also links to those pages, and do a small linking campaign to get links to those, funneling the link strength into those deeper pages. Some good easy link bait for you might be free generic legal forms in pdf format that you design, or something along those lines, maybe an incorporation checklist quick reference, etc. It shouldn't be all that hard.

    Alternatively you could hire someone to do some link building for you. I would go with a higher end link builder in this case though, if you do go that route, rather than low budget.

    Y'all are being really helpful, and I appreciate it.

    It's frustrating, man. My mom put up this site...it's like two pages, seriously, never updated once and it's been up for not that long, it's puzzlesandcrosswords-dot-com, and she gets a PR5! Meanwhile I languish with a PR4.

    Hello,

    Try add a couple of these pages in your index page. Do you have the pages linking from your home page?

    mvandemar is right

    I did 2 things to get some pages from supp:
    1. external links to my inner pages
    2. links to my inner pages from my other pages (when is possible)

    You just need to add them more authority

    Heh! Then get your mom to give you a free backlink. :p

    It only takes 1 link to get a particular PR sometimes. If it's a good PR6, then just one of those can get you a PR5 page when PageRank is updated... however, it can take around 100 PR3 links to get you a PR4 page.
