What would you do if one day you were doing a routine daily rank check for yours, or a client’s site, and suddenly found out that at least one or more big pages had suddenly vanished from Google’s index? You would probably sit in shock, and then want to cry, “What happened? How could this have happened?” At this point, you would probably begin panicking.
Steve Morgan has been in this situation, as he has written about in his newest post on Moz this morning. Luckily, Steve has seen this situation before and has had it happen to himself as well. He knows how to handle an important page from disappearing from Google.
In his post, Steve had a client page drop off from Google, but because he had experience to know what to do, he acted without panicking and got the page back up on Google, all within 12 hours. Crisis averted.
So what do you do if this ever happens to you? Well, Steve’s got you covered. In his article, Panic Stations! How To Handle An Important Page Disappearing From Google, Steve will go through a checklist of things you can do to help get back on your feet if any number of pages ever drops of the rankings map on Google.
