You have got to be kidding me. Well, I will try and give you a real life example: search on google.com 'chromecast vs fire stick' and you will see at the top someone who clearly hasn't tested any of the two devices outranking all the big websites (digitaltrends, tomsguide and on) and this is just one of the many examples.
Ah that's good news for you! I hope they will recover and stay the same.Looks like google is slowly correcting itself, a lot of my rankings are recovering.
Hi,There is a limit on how many URLs one can index using GSC (don't know the exact number), if you hit the limit, GSC will stop indexing new posts.
It's interesting to see people posting that BulkaddURL no longer works for them, it could have something to do with a limit how many URLs a website can index within a time frame, or maybe google people are reading this forum and seeing that BulkaddURL works well have done something to stop it indexing new links. I remember Matt Cutts saying a few years ago that they follow some BH forums to get ideas what people are up to.
I don't think I had hit a limit I only have about 250 posts, but yes, I have heard that Google limit their indexing/crawling. I thought at first that the new posts were not meeting a quality criteria and Google were just ignoring them rather than calling this out. To be honest I just don't know.
Thank you for your detailed response I will give it a go and I appreciate it. Best wishesInstead of using your old GSC or BulkaddURL try to index a new post using a blogger. Create a new account (blogger and GSC) with a different email address, add your new blogger to the new GSC. Write on your new blogger a short article, 300-500 words with a link to your money website. After it's published go to your new GSC, inspect URL and hit submit to index. The blogger article will be indexed within literally a few minutes, your new article that you linked to in the blogger post within a few hours. And see if it sticks on the google index. That should give you an idea of what the problem is or at least point you in the right direction.
Additional notes: the reason I said create a new blogger and GSC account with a different email address is to avoid footprints and not to use the same account as you do for your money site. The blogger article doesn't have to be award-winning or unique. The goal here is not to rank it but send google bot to crawl it, see that link and index it. Once your post you link to in the blogger post is indexed, you can remove the link or delete the blogger post.
In the article that you link to in the blogger post target ONE keyword that's somehow related to the overall topic of your website, preferably one that you've never used, use that keyword only ONCE, either in H1 or H2 or in a sentence. Track it with whatever tool you use to see how it ranks. If it's indexed (and sticks around) and ranks it's a good sign and take it from there depending on how it ranks. If the article doesn't stick around on google index you may be facing some kind of site-wide penalty related to content.
It sounds complicated and like a lot of work, but it could be done in 10 min. and more importantly, it'll tell how google sees your site. If you have questions, feel free to ask.
The things that are responsible for the rank drop
Manual or Algorithmic Penalty Rank Drop
You Got OutRanked by a Competitor
Your Site was Demoted due to On-page Issues
Your Site Dropped Because it is Losing Links
Google Just Updated Their Algorithm and Google Flux
This is either a slight or big drop. You might be scratched a little or you might be in serious trouble. In either cases, you might suspect an update if you’re rankings are suddenly and rapidly dropping.
