A fair amount of my sites were on page one in Google for their keywords.
One was as high as number three on page one so was getting around 10 hits a day. The other sites were mainly found on the bottom half of page one so were getting a few hits a day. Some were making the odd sale but most were making none. They were all for 5,000 to 10,000 monthly searched keyword niches.
I check my sites each day to see where they are ranking and there hadn’t been much movement until I checked a few days ago to find most of them had all gone down the Google search enging results page (serps) on the same day.
This lead me to wonder how often does Google update its index? I thought it was a constant process but as a lot of my pages all jumped on the same day it leads me to think otherwise.
It doesn’t really matter but it can’t help to know as much as you can about Google considering most search engine traffic comes via the big G.
Now I have the task of frantically updating my sites in the hope they will return to page one. If they don’t make it back some will have to be cut lose to allow me to focus on the small number of my sites that are making sales.
