Here's another tech question I'm sure will go unanswered here.
Everyone knows that when they are searching for where their own pages rank in Google, almost all the time you spot them easy because the link is purple.
That's because the browser "knows" you visited that site or page. My tourist site took a hit after I switched to a new theme.
I was doing some searching just now for a phase I use to be #4 on the front page for. Only because of some words that caught my eye did I see my site on page 6 now.
It was not purple. So, does this mean Google has re-indexed those pages, and that is why it's not shown as visited?
I hope so, because that means that my pages are coming back to good ranking, they just need to be re-indexed. I notice Bing still has my pages ranking well.
Anyone, anyone at all?
Don't worry Bill, Purple links don't means they are yours. Purple means your visited pages whether they yours or others. So whenever you clear your browser's history, they will again go blue.
Thanks for replying. Yes I know it can be other sites, but most of the time when you search for pages of your own only your pages you visited show up as visited.
I never clear my browser history, and plenty of my other pages I visited show up purple. So I'm wondering why these pages are not?
Did you use a different browser or search engine?
Try searching through this link. It gives accurate results (uses proxy) and also you can compare your search results from yahoo, bing and google.

...so it doesn't show up on our Google home page? When I have my browser open, but have not visited any sites yet, there are icons shown for each site I visit frequently. Hub Pages used to be one of them; now, no matter how often I visit/log in/access the site, it never translates into...

I noticed this morning that my hubscores have dropped unlike I've ever seen. So I wondered about copied hubs. I went to Google and put in partial titles and keyword to my hubs. I didn't see any duplicates (not sure I did this right) but I did notice the grey Norton icon with the "?" which...
