This thread should be locked.

Everytime someone replies it's getting shown on homepage and until I realize it's the same thread from before it gives an instant anxiety attack.
exactly same here! haha

To give you more anxiety attacks, here's what the serps look like for an event I'm covering on my site.

Top 10:

1. pittsorthodontics.com (pure spam)
2. Youtube (pure spam)
3. Youtube (pure spam)
4. salesianos.pt (pure spam)
5. Facebook.com (pure spam)
6. Facebook.com (pure spam)
7. bizcommunity.com (pure spam)
8. datafacility.de (pure spam)
9. datafacility.de (pure spam)
10. first real authority domain in this niche.

page #2 looks, in fact, so much better in terms of relevancy than #1.

When will Google solve this issue? How dumb are they to fail to identify authority spam? :D

On the other hand, same keyword in Bing is showing 3 top authority sites on the niche, instead of 1. Relevancy, of course, is much better.

Same here, 1st page in my niche is

Tumblr
Pinterest
Pinterest
Facebook
AnyFlip
TripAdbisor
YoutTube
YouTube
Goodreads
Reddit

There is not a single relevant site.

Small / medium businesses are being destroyed with every update.

I guess I will have to do a redirect 301 at the end of this month if nothing change. It's absurd that new domain in my niche rank better than me

Looks like it's all indexing issues. Top organic page for one site, ranking top 3 since May, suddenly not in the index at all (no changes made on site).

Can't tell how many pages affected because Search Console coverage report giving no data since 22nd.

Google = broken.

(is it normal for coverage report to be that delayed, btw? I haven't used it that much)

Hello.

I've been registering for every forum I could. I'm in a really big trouble as our site has started getting deindexed from 22/23rd September. No new articles are appearing and old articles are slowly disappearing (per mobile usability/AMP/sitelinks/breadcrumb graph and my own tests)

When I use inspection tool, it shows duplicate canonical URL and Google's selected URL is for a unrelated topic from my own site. Request indexing doesn't help.

I have checked the site for every technical issues, but there are none. Not sure where to start and what to fix.

I haven't seen anyone complaining about deindexing at a large scale, so I am more worried.

Thank you.

There's a lot of weird stuff going on with GSC and especially mobile results/rankings since around 15-18 September. Some people say that the pages returned by themselves, for others it is way more complicated including issues with Google selecting incorrect and unrelated canonicals.

Hello,

More than two thousand pages have been deindexed now. No new articles are appearing. Coverage data is also outdated.

same to my niche , the serp show up mostly Pinterest , facebook, youtube

And reddit and google books and all this s*it.

Google is so stupid, how can it understand that the WHOLE WEB is not that bunch of (big) sites???

Or you're a big multinational company with thousands of employees and quoted at the stock exchange or you are not allowed to play this game.

It would be interesting to know how many businesses, families and workers have lost their job (therefore a dignified life) with this no sense and nazi behavior.

It's time for antitrust and governments to make something.

A single (shady) company can't have the power to decide what web is or isn't.

So disgusting.

Since I am dealing with events, sometimes I have to manually re-index old urls with new content. Sometimes, I have to first-index new urls since some events are appearing on a faster rate than Google will crawl/index.

This is due to the site being rather new, but anyway, it used to work. Never had issues of gone over the quota - in a few words, I did not abuse the system at all.

Starting with 23-24 September, this doesn't work anymore. Every re-indexing attempt goes through, but the page is still showing old content.

Anyone having the same problems with indexing or re-indexing?
