Google rankings drops suddenly
Posted on 2004-10-30
I am from a company with a leading b2b website for a US industry. As part of promotions we had hired services of aSEO consultant to get us "top ranks" for a list of about 50-60 keywords. After his advice we did some changes, and started to see results for 4-5 keywords...
Then as part of our strategy we decided to do major upgradations to the front end GUI. Afer uploading the new version of the site (after taking care of all meta tags and URL's thatwere previuusly indexed by Google) -- we found out that suddenylwe are not ranked at all in Google- Now this guy blames that our chaing the GUI has cuased this , whereas earlier at the time of update he did not warn us. I wanted to take some recommendations from experts here on the following points:
1. Does changing the GUI of a previuusly indexed web page has any effect on google ranks?
2. If a couple of web pages on the site are on the slower side, are there any chnaces of those web pages not being indexed by google during the "crawl"?
3. Is there a practical possibility to get First Page ranks for a range of 50-60 keywords (which our consultant has promised)?
4. Do dynamic search result pages with path int he format of "search.jsp?name=&city=&product=" get indexed by google as well?
I'll really look forward to all comments here
