Supplemental Site Results Hack
« on: October 15, 2012, 05:50:36 PM »
I wasn't sure where this would go, but maybe this is the right place?  I found this great little hack to get your sites supplemental pages from here:
Code: [Select]
http://www.seobook.com/archives/002047.shtml The site had a calculator, but they say: UPDATE: Google is selfish and greedy with their data, and broke ALL of the below listed methods because they wanted to make it hard for you to figure out what pages of your site they don't care for.

A person by the nickname DigitalAngle left the following tip in a recent comment

   
Code: [Select]
If you want to view ONLY your supplemental results you can use this command site:www.yoursite.com *** -sljktf

I tried:

site:www.yoursite.com *** -sljktf

site:www.yoursite.com ***

and

site:www.yoursite.com

(with my url, of course)

None of them work.

Snap Ed, the string didn't work for me - Can I take that as meaning that none of my site's pages are in the supplemental site side of Google?

Sorry, my question is:  which string is the correct one to use?

Right, I have the answer:

site:yoursite.com***-sljktf (do not enter the www)
This gives you a list of all your site's pages Google has in its system (supplement and normal)

site:yoursite.com (do not enter the www)
This gives you a list of all of your site's pages that Google shows in its standard results

Thanks Dom, now I have one more rookie question.

I don't understand what is being referred to in "supplemental, normal and standard".  Can you explain this to me?  I appreciate the help.

Ed

That's a fine question and one I don't know the answer for right now.

I'll come back to you as soon as I've found enough out.

OK, so this is a brief summary of the information I've found on Supplemental Sites


Supplemental Pages are placed in an 'alternative' index to Google's usual 'primary' index.  They will only show up in search results if the search query does not have any relevant pages in the primary index.

Pre 2007 Google kindly labelled any search result that was from the supplemental index but they decided to phase that out in 2007 - why? No idea to be honest - it's Google

Pages are placed in the Supplemental Index if:

  • They have a low Page Rank
  • They are duplicated content
  • Lack of trust
  • The site has a high page count
  • The page has lost its 'freshness'
'

The best way to move your page between the indexes is to ensure that you use high quality backlinks into that page - that way Google will 'see' that your page now has a higher 'trust' level.

Basically, it's all about getting good, solid content and having backlinks into your page from quality sites elsewhere on the net - you get those 2 right and supplemntal indexing should not worry you.

Hope that helps

Well, things change in the IM world pretty darned fast, and I wrote this over a year ago (October 15, 2012) I would be surprised if anything much worked now, so thanks Dom for figuring it out for us!

Your so right things are changing so fast that sometimes it is hard to keep up but you have to so what you can and always try to be inovated and think up new ways and try them.

Yeah...this works as long as you're not trying new things too often, leaving the old new things unfinished  ;)

Hi Dom,

Thanks for working this out! I have just tried to find my sites pages but I noticed that there are spaces before and after the 3 asterisks as shown by (mlane)

As a matter of interest my site has 4,430 results! Still no traffic from google, but Yahoo & Bing still like my site!)

I can't remember when I last visited this forum but I am glad to be back!
