Google indexing weirdness



In looking at my Google Analytics info…. I checked on the Northcarolinagenealogy.net site’s stats and found that it’s really dropped since about Friday or Saturday from decent traffic to next to nothing. (20 visitors a day now.) The first thing I noticed was no google.com referrers…. So, I started looking and sure enough the last Google search visitor arrived Friday. So, I started investigating further site:northcarolinagenealogy.net brought up nothing (as did site:www.northcarolinagenealogy.net).


OK – I’ve been delisted from google on that domain. (Google drove the vast majority of traffic to the site previously.) For background, that domain is hosted in a subdirectory of this domain and on looking I found pages in google that were from that domain, but listed averyjparker.com/ncge….. blah blah blah to get there. (Looks like not all, just some.) At this point I’m guessing that google has delisted them because of the duplication of getting the site at averyjparker.com/ncgen…. and northcarolinagenealogy.net and has just delisted the wrong (from my point of view) one.

So, I spent a bit of time refreshing my memory on .htacess url rewriting. For instance, for this site, I have ….

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.?)averyparker.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.averyjparker.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Set so that visitors coming to either averyjparker.com or www.averyjparker.com get redirected to www.averyjparker.com (the url in the address bar get’s rewritten), the R=301 is the redirect code.

So, for those subdirectories I basically added something like….

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^averyjparker.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.northcarolinagenealogy.net/ [r=301,L]
to the .htaccess file which essentially strips out any /index.php addons and simply redirects a visitor in this subdirectories to the main www.northcarolinagenealogy.net domain.

I’ll be curious to see if that (and resubmitting my sitemap AND resubmitting through their addurl tool) gets the pages reindexed.
