    3 yr old site, 15,000 product pages, only hundreds indexed


    My site perfumebadaboom.com has steadily been losing pages indexed by google lately, yournewfragrance on the otherhand has been gaining pages. What am I doing wrong here. I've been doing SEO for years, and am still ranked 11 for perfume, but I used to rank 4. I'm not sure what I did, or what changed in the algo, but I don't like it one bit. Your help would be appreciated to say the least!

    Thanks,

    Sebastian

    I don't understand. A simple site:perfumebadaboom.com shows 29.000 results. You are claiming you have 15.000 product pages of which only 100s are indexed? What are those other results?

    Im asking because if almost over twice of indexed pages on a site are not relevant anymore, there definately is a huge problem.

    Following these recommendations should increase the likelihood that your site will show up consistently in the search results.

    dunno about the links...but the site that "developed" (and I use that term very loosely!!) the perfume site, seosaints.com ... guys do drop by to see this one!!!

    sigh...and here I thought that this type of SEO was long gone....dead in the water....but apparently not!

    sigh...

    I guess if you submit sitemaps then all your pages will get indexed?

    it says that sometimes, but try it again, it will pull 700ish. Im not sure. I have 3 friends that all were all racing eachother to see who could get the best results, it started making a little money so we got a little more serious but lately ive been getting deranked. When I tried typing in site:perfumebadaboom dot com just now I got 706 pages, try it with your new fragrance and you will get thousands. Can't figure it out.

    That sucks to hear, but I agree. I've only optimized the way I've been taught. Guess I'll just start reading up on the forums and check myself before I wreck myself. Thanks for everybody's opinons.
