Google Supplemental Result – How to get out of Supplemental Result

What is Google Supplemental Result?

Simply saying Google Supplemental result means pages that are not valuable in the eye of Google. Once Google find such pages he sort out pages and put them in supplemental result.

Is supplemental result affecting my overall ranking?

Most probably YES. If Google show most of your web pages in their supplemental result then your website ranking will be down. Supplemental results means Google don’t like those pages and not like to index them in their main index. So overall your website pages will be drop and as well your ranking. If you have a static small website then you can probably manage all pages of your website and make them different from all other pages but supplemental result problem very common in big dynamic site where webmaster cant distinguish enough from other pages and Google through pages in their supplemental index and will not crawl those pages regularly. Pages showed in Supplemental results are still show in Google Cache but Google cached page before month or more. This shows Google not like to visit this page often and don’t like to index.

How to get out of Google Supplemental Result?

This is very crucial for every webmaster to make site search engine friendly so search engine call crawl each and every page and include pages in their index. Once site is ready webmaster need to check content of each and every page, Meta, title and description. It must be different from all other pages. If you have deep linking then put a direct link on home page of your website so Google find it easily and love to crawl page regularly. Other important thing you need to consider is URL, make sure URL do not contain query string, hyphen and numbers. In Google Webmaster Guideline they have clearly mentioned

If you decide to use dynamic pages (i.e., the URL contains a "?" character), be aware that not every search engine spider crawls dynamic pages as well as static pages. It helps to keep the parameters short and the number of them few.

Keyword Density: - Most SEO and Web Promotion experts do not follow quality guideline provided by Google. Your title length should be 6 to 12 words maximum, your description length should be 12 to 24 words maximum and finally your keyword length should be 24 to 40 words. At the beginning of title tag, description tag and keyword tag put most effective keyword of your website. Try to repeat the keywords, for which you optimize, at least two times in Meta tags but its better if you use keyword phrase. Using keyword phrase will improve your keyword density and your website chance of getting good ranking in search engine.
