My site appears & disappears - pretty frustrating RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a high ranking site on google.ca and also on yahoo. but on MSN (and even on the sympatico canadian sites only search) I can't seem to catch a break! My site is not blocked but was last crawled on March 29. I can't find it even if I search in quotes! I have a sitemap and am pretty experienced in SEO,but MSN is so damn frustrating. For a while my site was appearing and now it's just gone--though not blocked, according to Webmaster Central.

    MSN's approach to Search Engine Ranking seems totally ad hoc: I just can't figure out the logic. No consistent pattern. VERY frustrating.

    site is "Rocket Fireworks" - www.rocket.ca

  • Hi,


    Two things I noticed:


    1. We do not have body content for rocket.ca which means something is preventing us from crawling your site as well as we could




    2. because rocket.ca is exactly the same as rocketfireworks.ca, it is showing up as duplicate content which falls under our spam guidelines, so both sites are being penalized.



    Both sites are indexed though.
