Google Crawled, Indexed. But not Visible in SERP at Any Position for Any Keywords

I found the above titled issue at a redirected URL recently after the Google update 2011. That is, “URL Crawled, Indexed. But not shown in SERPs for any keywords at any level”.

The time gap of “Google Crawling” is also reduced which is a Good Sign.  But at the other end, when I type the URL in Google it’s shown up. But, not for the basic level as well as targeted keywords and even for its own content. If I copy paste the first few words of its own content in SERP (actually it must come), it is not visible at any level.

After a thorough analysis on various factors, found content duplication is the main issue and also found out the sites that are having the entire content even with same images.

As per the information I have gained, the same Content came for the results, before the URL redirection. The problem happened after redirecting to a new URL with the same content.  Because those people copied that website’s content before the URL redirection and before the Google Update 2011. The redirection done after the date, they have copied. So the problem is, coz of the recent update happening in between these, Google assumed that the redirected URL is the copied victim based on the date factor.

Solutions to be made, if above issue happens:

First analyze whether is there is any other site copied your content. If it is so,

1. We could try the old URL without redirection but with the same content. Since it is an old content for that Old URL and Google already knows it, there might be a chance for reconsidering the content into its SERP.


2. We could completely put up Fresh content with current URL. And suggest for URL for reconsideration in Google Webmasters tool with the explained details. But it might take a long time to bring the URL.


3. Completely change the URL and Content for that product.

404 – Responds with an Error, but Shows a Custom Page to Help your Visitors

The 404 Error is a Not Found error message and is a HTTP standard response code indicative of that the client was able to communicate with the server, however the server could not uncover what was appealed.

404 errors should not be perplexed with “server not found” or related errors, in which a connection to the destination server could not be made at all. 404 errors signify that the demanded source possibly accessible again in the future.

The Error 404 “Page not found” is the error page showed whenever someone requests for a page that does simply not exist on your website. The reason for this is that there may be a linkage on your website that was erroneous or the page may have been recently removed from the website. When there is no web page to put on view, the web server sends a page that plainly says “404 Page not found”.

The 404 error message is an HTTP – Hypertext Transfer Protocol – standard status code. This “Not Found” response code signifies that even though the client could communicate to the server, the server could not locate what was requested or it was constructed not to carry out the request.

The 404 “Not Found” errors are not the same as the “Server Not Found” error that you perceive whenever a connection to the destination server could not be recognized in any way.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) affirms that 404 Not Found should be applied in cases where the server is unsuccessful to establish the requested location and is unsure of its status. Whenever a page has been everlastingly removed, the status code used should be 410. But barely have we seen a 410 page. Instead, 404 Not Found page has develop into popular and the most commonly used error page.

ROR Sitemap – Resources of a Resource – Importance

ROR (Resources of a Resource), a fast growing independent XML format for describing any object of your content in a standard manner, so any search engine can be able to better understand that content. is the official ROR website.

ROR feed is an influential structured feed for describing all your objects to the search engines: products, services, reviews, discounts, images, events, schedule, podcasts, as well as anything you want.

ROR information is typically stored in a ROR feed called ror.xml placed in your website’s main directory. Unlike Google Base, ROR feeds can be easily accessed by all search engines: at

ROR was created before Google Sitemaps, as a way to describe website information for the search engines. ROR is much more than Google Sitemaps. Also, ROR Sitemaps are automatically readable by all search engines, including Google.

ROR was created before Google Base. But unlike Google Base, ROR is for all search engines, not just one. Any search engine can find your ROR information using this scheme:

The name ror.xml is just the default name; that’s where search engines look by default. If they don’t find it there they look for a <link> tag in your main page (between the <head> and </head> tags):

<link rel=”alternate”
title=”ROR” href=”; />

Alternatively you can simply create a tiny ror.xml file and use it to tell the search engines the real location of your ROR feed.

<rss version=”2.0″ xmlns:ror=””&gt;
<title>Your Site Name</title>

A ROR Sitemap is simply a special type of ROR feed, a feed that provides sitemap information to the search engines. The ROR team is working with several companies in defining new object types and attributes for everyone to use. ROR is spreading very fast. There are currently tens, if not hundreds, of thousands website using ROR.
