    Supplemental URL


    Hello,

    Can a URL that went supplemental turn into non supplemental by making changes in to the metatags? or is it impossible?

    Thanks

    Meta Tags... not likely...

    More unique content or more direct links... sure.

    My URLs went supplemental basically because of repeated title and meta description. The content is completelly different in all of them.

    So, it is possible for the same URL to go non supplemental after some changes?

    Or would you recommend me to post new URLs for all that went supplemental?

    You can get out of supplemental index ... if titles and descriptions are unique.

    Of course ... these pages are crawled infrequently so it may take a while for Google to discover the new material.

    Template pages with no content will also fall into supplemental index, so make sure there is sufficient original content on each page.

    Thanks for the template thing.
    What would you do? make the necessary changes on the same URLS, or make the necessary changes and post new URLs ?

    Depends on your philosophy ...

    I am an old dog that prefers indexed pages ... personally I have a hard time deleting any page already indexed.

    BTW ...Supplemental indexing is not a penalty.

    If you are in it for the long term it really should not matter.

    Submit a sitemap and Google will see the page has changed and revisit.

    Well your titles should represent the content of the page... as for Meta Tags, and page urls are so far down the value tree they don't measure one way or the other...

    Your problem is either content available elsewhere on the web and/or lack of links.

    If you're sure the content isn't the problem... get more links... and that will fix in [particularly deep links]

    Why are you mixing links with this issue. Its not related with content.
    The issue here is supplemental results. Not link popularity.

    Thanks anyway.

    Fathom is talking about another reason for supplementals ...

    If you do not have any duplication in titles, or template pages, then there is a possibility that site PR is too low.

    There seems to be a relationship between the number of pages indexed and the number of incoming links. Google won't index a 10,000 page site on the basis of one link.
