Do You Have Supplemental Results? Just Get Some Links!

Every once in a while I will run across some information that I think you will find helpful and I will bring it to your attention. Below I have information from a great article on “supplemental results” you should read!

But first, let’s talk about the weather!

I hope you are having a great Summer!

I know it can be hard to work at our computers on our web sites when the weather is so nice, but those that do will keep the momentum going and will be ready when the traffic surges in the months ahead! Those of us with fresh web sites with regularly updating content will see soon some nice healthy returns.

Planning ahead for the Fall surge of traffic that comes with Back To School in September will pay off big time to those that have been adding fresh new real content pages and getting high quality text relevant links.

Build pages and get links now so your pages are indexed, seasoned and in prominent positions when people start doing more inside and spend more time on their computers!

After all it’s only 48 days till September!

Yipes! That really puts things in perspective!

Yes, Summertime is traditionally a little slower for advertising and internet marketing in general, but it’s still worth spending some time building sites, adding new pages, getting links and doing the important things that make us money (primarily building pages – getting links!).

Yes, Adsense bids may drop a little for most niches and the click volume on ads may go down drastically for some businesses during July and August (some go up!), but working on our web sites is still a great investment of time because the work we will do now will pay off big time in 48 to 60 days down the road!

Putting up real valuable content and getting high quality links now will pay off big when Fall and Winter roll around and people are back at their computers digging around for information and looking to spend money.

Do you have any pages that are in Google’s supplemental index? If so, that’s OK – NO NEED TO PANIC! Honest!

If you do have some pages that are currently be in Google’s “supplemental index”, now is the time to spend some effort on linking to those URL’s so that they will soon be ranking high and getting you traffic.

Hey, that’s what Google is telling us!

Getting some high quality links to the pages in the supplemental is the way to get them out!

I just found an interesting article called “Getting into Google” that summarizes a live speech-discussion a Google “crawling employee” had with an SEO type group at a regional search engine conference.


While the entire article is worth glancing over I found one paragraph of particular significance to those of us that build web sites with articles which covers “supplemental results”.

I suggest you read the whole article – but here is an excerpt on supplemental results.

The Dreaded Supplemental Results

excerpt: He explained that basically the supplemental index is where they put pages that have low PageRank (the real kind) or ones that don’t change very often. These pages generally don’t show up in the search results unless there are not enough relevant pages in the main results to show. He had some good news to report: Google is starting to crawl the supplemental index more often, and soon the distinction between the main index and the supplemental index will be blurring. For now, to get your URLs back into the main results, he suggested more incoming links (of course!).

Read the whole article “Getting Into Google” which is available at:


Please go and read the entire article!

Let’s discuss this! I want to know what you have to think about planning ahead for Fall and also about supplemental index ideas and suggestions!

Thanks for spending some time with me and best wishes for some Summer fun and huge marketing success!

  1. How do you FIND the google supplemental index? I’ve never heard of it.

  2. You don’t find them > they find you :’> Sorry, could not resist!

    The supplemental index is an “in-house” term Google uses to refer to it’s secondary index in which it stores pages that are only used to return results when the FIRST index is exhausted. You can’t just find it as the only way you even know it exists is by seeing the term “supplemental result” noted at the bottom of the listing on google for your page.

    You usually only see “supplemental” for longer search phrases where there are many similar pages with the same content or when pages have few or no links pointing at it.

    At the time of this writing – search for this on Google and you’ll see a site that has many “supplemental results”

  3. I’m no expert with Google but one thing that I found out was that if you put up a site with lots of content all at one time, you’ll be banished to their supplemental index (aka the sandbox) forever. I built a site that had over 200 pages and it did me no good from a SEO perspective. Question: just how low of a Page Rank do you need to have to be put in the supplemental index? I assume all PR1 and PR2 sites. It seems counterproductive to put PR3 and PR4s in there (I’m assuming to Google PR5 and above are stellar sites.

  6. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index, which covers both A and B shares, shed 102.72 points to 3,369.99.The index slumped 37 percent in the first quarter of 2008, posting the biggest percentage quarterly drop in 15 years.”The market stayed in a downward trend as the government has not issued major market-boosting policies.” said Liao Wenkai, an analyst at Hengtai Securities.”Investor confidence was severely hit by recent sharp falls and they are overreacting to any negatives.” Liao also added that China’s high inflation would be a drag on corporate earnings.Luo, Wang Fengxiu and the other senior citizens in and around the stadium may not have to worry about employment when the situation returns to normal. Children too don’t have to worry about missing classes and disrupting their education because tent schools, which can hold up to 2,000 students, have been set up outside Jiuzhou Stadium.But adults like Wang Jun have to wait
