On Friday the 5th of April, pages and sites all over the show were reportedly dropping off the face of Google Search Console. The next day, Google reported having fixed this de-indexing issue, declaring it the result of a ‘technical issue’. They then retracted this statement, responding to further complaints that the issue seems to be taking longer than initially expected to fix. While the issue was officially resolved on the 11th of April – almost a full week later (yikes!) – the industry is still picking their feathers back up and are scrambling to know what they can do to get their pages re-indexed. So what happened to Google for this issue to happen? And why did it take so long to fix? We give you the lowdown below. *We will be using local New Zealand time for all dates and times mentioned in this blog post. The Google De-indexing issue in a nutshell There was an uproar of complaints from many Photo Editing Services SEO agencies and site owners alike reporting that their sites were dropping out of Google’s search index for no apparent reason. A huge number of sites’ pages were no longer showing up on Google SERPs, and this issue was instantly obvious through Google Search Console or when using the site: command in a browser. Since these pages were no longer showing up when their relevant keywords were searched, this created large impacts in sites traffic stats. Sites that were affected found they could use the fetch feature to reinstate their indexing almost immediately. But for some sites with over half their pages dropping out, it is not an easy fix. It’s not clear why this has happened, or how widespread the issue was. It is unlikely that Google will provide any more information on the matter. However, there have been assumptions made that it was some kind of engineering bug.
