Google goes supplemental

Seems even Google's own site is not worthy of the main index. What has the world come to?

just realised I don't see

just realised I don't see this later on from work. I made a screen shot just so you don't all think I'm crazy :-p

Not for me

I just checked that query, google.com is still in the main index... In fact, I checked a bunch of DC's, and they all came up with Google.com in the main index. Perhaps it was just a temporary thing?

EDIT: hadn't seen SlyOldDog's post yet when I wrote this

can see it here

I'm seeing it all supplemental atm.

hmm

I don't not believe you, I just don't see it on mine. Wish i did, i could use a monday morning laugh. lol

I would recommend that you

I would recommend that you think of supplemental results as pages which (most likely) have less PageRank than pages in the main web index. So www.google.com/reviews?cid=b3c12ee96ed87b2d , which is a review of "The Gold Rush," a movie from 1925, is a perfectly natural url to be a supplemental result. Although it sounds like it was a good movie. ;)

But... :)

Sure, but does that mean google only stores 3 of it's own pages in the main index?

Ah, I get it - I thought the

Ah, I get it - I thought the story was that a site:google.com was turning up just a couple of URLs, with the rest as supplmental. My bad for misunderstanding. :)

Looking down that SERPs trying to a supplemental I saw this thought it was about some new deal they had struck. http://www.google.com/microsoft
