I have recently opened a bounty regarding unnatural links appearing in my search console due to no fault of my own. Many asked for the names of the sites, however, I would prefer to keep it quite - simply because it is from a fierce competitor in my niece.
I have linked to the previous questions since the following question may or may not be related to the question I am about to ask.
Google is dropping indexed pages faster than they are being uploaded...and I upload daily. and check
site:www.example.com returns less results everyday, it currently returns 20 results with 5 of those results being pages, thus only 15 posts displaying with a
site search, despite having well over a 100 quality posts, all which shows indexed in search console...
The ironic thing is...when performing
site:www.example.com on a mobile device ALL my posts gets returned
- How accurate is
site:search and how much should I read into it?
- Anyidea why all pages with
site:search are displaying on mobile devices but not on desktops?
- Pasting the url into search bokes or using
""around text yields no results on desktop?
- Can all of the above be indication of a penalty? If yes, I dont think I have the time or resources to fight it and would rather abandon the domain...if doing so and 301'ing my top pages with best links will that transfer penalty to new domain?
- Is this something which should likely be waited out?
- Any other advice
I am willing to provide my domain name, if allowed by community...Providing it can be used in helping to diagnose the problem, kindly request it from me, should you wish to be kind enough to have a look.
Many Thanks to all the great contributions.
