Google Supplemental results

A lot of web site owners have recently discovered their pages have landed in Google’s supplemental results. I’m going to answer some common questions regarding Google supplemental results.

What are Supplemental Results?

Google supplemental results is a separate database to the normal Google index, pages that fall into the supplemental database normally have the following characteristics:

  • Lack of inbound links to the page
  • Not a direct link from the homepage (orphaned)
  • Duplicate content of either Meta tag, description tag or body content

How can I tell if I’m in supplemental results database?

In Google type the following in a search field

Site:www.yoursite.com

Look at your pages indexed in Google, if any of those pages have the word supplemental result in green after the URL then they are in supplemental results.

Why would Google do this?

Why not!!!! It makes complete sense. Google does not want it search results to be clustered with documents that have no meaning. Think about it, if you have pages that are so important you would be acquiring links and avoiding duplicating your content. Okay some pages can go supplemental and it can be annoying but if you want to be in the main index you have to work for it J

How do I get out of the supplemental results?

Okay firstly I have noticed when a site gets indexed for the first time certain pages can go supplemental, if this is the case wait it out until the next crawl of your site. However check your site for the following:

  • Make sure your site has a sufficient number of inbound linksArticle Submission, but not to just the homepage get some links pointing to internal pages.
  • Make sure you have a link to your page from the homepage (try not to have more than 3 links deep if possible)
  • Check for duplicate content on your site

The following can almost guarantee you getting out of the supplemental results.
