Google SiteSearch

Google is play­ing tricks on me, late­ly. When I use “SiteSearch”:http://www.google.com/services/free.html to search this site, I don’t get indi­vid­ual results– just recent results, from my home page and RSS feeds.

Case in point– “pixies”:http://www.google.com/search?ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&q=pixies&domains=http%3A%2F%2Fnedward.org&sitesearch=http%3A%2F%2Fnedward.org&btnG=Search

I’ve post­ed many times about this group: “1”:http://nedward.org/archives/002831.php “2”:http://nedward.org/archives/002606.php “3”:http://nedward.org/archives/002627.php “4”:http://nedward.org/archives/002456.php, etc. Yet only the home page result appears in my Site­Search.

Is it that this site’s pager­ank is so low, that Google isn’t both­er­ing to index it any­more? If any­body has some ideas, or replace­ment sug­ges­tions, i’d love to hear from you.

  • You’re prob­a­bly right — you prob­a­bly aren’t get­ting indexed fre­quent­ly enough.

    Maybe it would give Google a lit­tle nudge if you start­ed doing the “Google sitemap”:http://www.niallkennedy.com/blog/archives/2005/06/google_sitemaps.html thing? It’s pret­ty triv­ial to make a MT blog gen­er­ate sitemaps and it’s good for your site and may be good for Web 2.0 some­day :)

    It’s hard to say what Google real­ly does with this infor­ma­tion and how it affects index­ing,
    but it’s worth a shot, I guess.

  • Thanks, that’s a good resource.

    It seems so strange to me though, because my archive pages used to be Indexed.

    I guess we’ll see what hap­pens once they index my site map. ..

  • Ned,

    It looks like that Google is pick­ing up most of your con­tent in your oth­er domain, ned.suckahs.org. Try the fol­low­ing Google search:

    http://tinyurl.com/9zobk”:http://tinyurl.com/9zobk

    If you would like to roll your own site search by using the ned.suckahs.org domain, look at the search box on ubertuber.org.

    Hope this helps!
