Sudden Drop in Indexed URLs
« on: 12-06-2017, 23:53:36 »
Hi Everyone,

I am working on and, I have submitted 35 lakh URLs and 15K URLs to google respectively. One month back Google was indexed 4lakh and 10K URLs respectively. After that I have done some changes in Content and used Popup. Within 20 days the indexed URLs gone back to 16K and 1.8K respectively.

I have questioned in webmaster forums, one of the employees from google given reply with few corrections, I done all and resubmitted on 4th December. But still it is going back and there is no improvement. I am unable to find the proper reason behind this. Can anyone help me to solve this issue and to index all those URLs again.

Here I am adding the conversation link with webmasters forum.

Thanks & Regards

 you see a sudden drop in the number of indexed pages, it might mean that your server is down or overloaded, or that Google is having trouble accessing your content.

You have to do a detailed analysis of your website like checking robots.txt file and source code of the pages. Maybe a particular section of the website is suffering, or a specific type of page is no longer indexing well.

Crawl budget lessened since Googlebot hasn’t detected any new changes, so no longer crawls or indexes as deep or as frequently. Loss or reduction in your back-links which may affect your crawl budget.

Only counts exact URLs in the sitemap. And the ‘indexing Status’ report is done by a background batch job, so sometimes laggy. In short, you can’t really deduce ANYTHING conclusive from these fluctuations (alone). They MAY well just be natural variations.

Google may also remove URLs of those products’ pages that no longer available.

The number of indexed URLs is almost always significantly smaller than the number of crawled URLs because Total indexed excludes URLs identified as duplicates, non-canonical, or those that contain a meta noindex tag.

Check responsiveness of your website and resubmit sitemap.

You can also hire our professional SEO consultants to do a deep analysis of your website to fix the issues quickly and efficiently.

recently there was a problem from Google side that URLs get deindexed automatically! That might be the reason for the sudden drop in indexed URLs. But as Google said, it is fixed now and everything is normal so check once again and resubmit if required.
