Google De-Indexing Some Free Directories?

Google De-Indexing Some Free Directories? | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it

From the article intro: "There some discussion going on in the webmaster/SEO community that Google may have de-indexed some free web directories.


Barry Schwartz at Search Engine Roundtable points to a WebmasterWorld forum thread on the subject.

The thread begins with a post from user Sunnyujjawal, who says:

"While checking some sites links I found 50% free submission directories are out of G now.


Will Google count such links in negative SEO or unnatural linking?


Schwartz concurs that about 50% of the ones he searched for did not have listings."


Interesting. 7/10

Improving Content for Google Panda: To De-Index a Page Don't Block Search Crawlers | SEOMoz

Improving Content for Google Panda: To De-Index a Page Don't Block Search Crawlers | SEOMoz | Google Penalty World | Scoop.it

From the article: "Since the Panda update, more and more people are trying to control their Google index and prune out low-quality pages.


I’m a firm believer in aggressively managing your own index, but it’s not always easy, and I’m seeing a couple of common mistakes pop up.


One mistake is thinking that to de-index a page, you should block the crawl paths. Makes sense, right? If you don’t want a page indexed, why would you want it crawled?


Unfortunately, while it sounds logical, it’s also completely wrong."


Informative. 7/10
