Hubs Have Gone Supplemental

    Hello Team,
    I noticed that my page views have dropped quite a bit over the past week and just about any page that was indexed by Google has gone into the Supplemental Index. The pages were holding quite well and had good position until this sudden shift. Do you have any explanation on what would cause this sort of index movement?

    Thanks Much,
    Hedgeek.

    That could explain a lot. I was getting good traffic from Google until recently. It's almost dried up.

    How do you check if your hub page is in the supplemental index?

    Hey Spuds,
    I didn't have a lot of time to look at your hubs, but your best hub on chocolate mud cake is supplemental.  I don't really have time to write a detailed explanation on how to check , but here's the query on google http://www.google.com/search?num=100&am … 2+hubpages

    I think there are a number of us being shuffled off to the suplemental index for some reason.  Still no response for the HubPages team on what could be causing this.

    Thanks for the reply hedgeek.

    It's interesting that if I do a site search for hubpages you can clearly see that not all hubpages are in the supplemental index. Are some people being punished for some reason?

    One more thing,

    I have done a site search on all of my pages.

    Some pages that were previously in Google are now no longer there. Why?

    Some pages are in the main index and some are supplemtal.

    Look forward to hearing why from the Hub staff.

    It appears that I  posted this in the wrong place or I haven't established myself well enough in the community to get a direct response from the HubPages team.  The issue did come up in the forums and is being addressed in this thread.
