Huge difference in indexed pages by webmaster tool and site: command ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am asking this question with regard to our domain kfupm.edu.sa. We have many subdomains for which i frequently submit sitemap through using webmaster tools. The is with regard to the site www.kfupm.edu.sa . I have two questions


    1) when i see the no of indexed pages using the webmaster tools i see the result as 57,700 and when i click the same i could view the result as 5,290. I get the same result when i use the command (site:www.kfupm.edu.sa).

    Last crawled: 10/23/2008 Indexed pages: 57,700
    Domain score:
    Blocked: No

    2) In google i have nearly 550,000 pages indexed and in yahoo nearly 240,000 pages where as for live i could see only 18,000.

  • Hi,


    I wanted to follow-up with you to let you know I'm still researching this. Has there been any change (positive or negative)?

  • You are still reseaching it. Taking you a long time, I guess you use live to do your reseach.

  • Hi Brett,


    There has been no change still the indexed pages for our main website www.kfupm.edu.sa shows Indexed pages: 27,500 . But when you use the site:www.kfupm.edu.sa command from live.com it comes to Web 1-10 of 4,510 results.
