I posted a while back about how search pages from directories were appearing high on the lists of results for certain keywords where my site has disappeared since the Google filters were added.
This has now apparently been cleaned up by Google (do they read this forum ?) and the directory pages do not show up in search results as they once did.
However, my site is still completely absent from the searches on certain keywords where it used to come well up the list of results. My site is not spam and a large number of the results a searcher would pull up now on Google for these keywords are no longer relevant or are certainly less relevant then my site.
To my surprise, following a brief drop, page hits have not been effected at all by this change. I used to get the majority of my page hits from Google but now I am getting at least an equivalent number from MSN search.
Have MSN targeted the search results Google has filtered and stolen a march on them in relevancy ?
