Why does Google slap my new site for a good part of the day?

Just published a clean directory with more than 3000 unique pages and realized, that Google “deindexes” most pages during working hours. During the day, there are about 60 pages in the Google index, and during nighttime all 3000. This changes daily — is this some Pandaupdate thingy? Any suggestions?

Paul asks…

How to increase Google Page Rank of a site?

Hi! If any one provide the answer how to increase Google Page Rank of a site?

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

Page Rank is calculated by inbound links and outbound links to your website,
since the introduction on the Google Panda Update many sites have lost Page Rank.

This is due to previously placed backlinks losing value. Google in an effort to place newer content on the front pages sites that have newer and updated content has gained PageRank. Creating more inbound links to your site by placing comments on websites that are producing new content from April 2011 will increase your ranking as these sites have gained in page rank. When you find a site that has new content post comments on as many pages as you can. Be careful that the owner doesn’t delete your comments for spamming. This a good way to build organic backlinks to your site.

Chris asks…

How can I get noticed on youtube without playing cover songs?

I am a singer-songwriter and I want to promote my original songs on youtube, I have made a good start (about 13,500 video views) but I can’t seem to get much momentum going. I know people who have 20 times the views/subscribers etc on their page, just from playing covers. Are there any tips to attracting viewers / subscribers?


Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

Well the luck plays it’s part on this!! But I’m going to tell u something! If u put the idea on your mind and u worked really really hard on it! You will get it !! There is nothing impossible in this life!! As I see their videos getting a lot of views, they don’t seem to be special ( or very talented) even gives me a feeling that anybody who is serious about making videos can actually get a lot of views.
You can greatly increase your YouTube views by following basic optimization tips:
1. Title: optimize titles so that they get better search engine results plus get a lot of views on YouTube.
2. Thumbnails: Select a compelling thumbnail that catches eyes.
3. Don’t make an Ad(only for commercial purpose): if your video doesn’t provide any value it won’t be viewed again and again.
4. Be innovative: Innovative videos spread like a virus on social networking sites and easily get on the front page of YouTube. So be creative, be funny.
5 .Optimize tags: Ensure proper tagging to get better position in search results.
6.Social networking: use twitter,facebook,Myspace to promote…
7. Your personal blog: set up a website or a blog. Direct people from videos to blog also vice versa.
8.Use other video sites: use the power of Daily Motion, MetaCafe and other video sites.
9.Never Ever give up: Even if your initial attempts fail, do yourself a favour, don’t give up.

There is a great resource named “How to get more youtube views in 24 hours or less by Ryan hanks”

Best of luck

Betty asks…

How can I promote my website without spending any money on advertising?

If anyone knows what the best free web submission site is, it would be a great help. I have also tried advertising using blog software but this does not seem to be helping. Any helps and links would be helpful.

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

Web advertising is a continuous thing. It’s not often that you’d get one link and VIOLA – traffic come pouring in. It takes months to get your site visible out there. Just make sure that you dedicate AT LEAST 1 hour per day marketing your site – whether writing press releases, participating in forums, etc.

Successful marketing is always a combination of many things — great content, good search engine rankings, listings in key websites, press releases, etc.

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement – if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you get for FREE! Here are some recommend this site scripts (many are free) that you can use

3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of’s “Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day.”

4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News. My website (see my profile) accepts free press release submission (no strings attached!)

5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

6. Improve your conversion (if you are selling a product). Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article “10 Ways to Convert Visitors to Buyers” for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

7. Promote your blog (if you have a blog). Here is a comprehensive list of sites where you can promote your blog or RSS feeds

Susan asks…

How can i drive more traffic to my Hubs on HubPages?

I have watched many videos and done relevant keyword research, made sure there was relevant content in the article and around 1000 words, made sure there weren’t many pages already listed on google and that the search term had around 2000 searches per month. Added 3 pictures and 2 videos and some relevant links and tags and still only getting around 6 views a day?

Any tips or advice is welcome.

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

With the help of search engine optimization you can get the proper traffic on your hub pages. Back links are the most important part to get traffic. Submit your blogs and blog spot links on various high PR sites. So with affordable investment you will get the proper viewers on your blog spot.

Thomas asks…

How do i build up a forum with absolutely nothing on it?

I have a forum all about droid devices. I do know alot about electronics and stuff but i’m sure people don’t want to go on a forum to see threads from just one person. When I visit other forum’s it’s more to see other people’s opinions not just one. That’s what blogs are for… So how do I pull people to my forum? Just some tips would be fine.

Tips Direct from Yahoo Answers!:

Im a webmaster and have been doing it for 10 years. What you need to do is attract people via search engines, and convince your visitore that your forum is the place to be. If it was easy, there’d be 3489238479283749283742 forums related to your topic, which is obviously impossible. Work on search engine optimization, and your front page should be helpful. If you can impress people on your website, they’ll follow a link to your forum and its all uphill from there. Good luck

Learn how to interpret your webstats

It’s definitely interesting when you REALLY start looking at your webstats / site analytics.  There’s so much valuable data that analytics saves it’s a shame that most webmasters or companies don’t pay any attention whatsoever to what their visitors are actually doing on their site – or how they got their in the first place for that matter.

On the same note – the data is also meaningful when you see what your competition is trying to do in order to “reverse engineer” what you’re doing.  It’s actually quite funny that people are still trying to outrank me for certain terms when they don’t seem to realize that those terms aren’t even being searched by the public at large – and really only being searched by SEO guys like us just for the sake of seeing what ranks!  I’m going to revive one of my experiments I did on one of my other sites I conducted back in 2009.  I tried to rank for a certain keyword phrase with a mastermind group I was running and wanted to demonstrate to them how you could rank very quickly – sometimes hours depending on how competitive the keyword was.  Well, fast forward 3 years and it appears other SEO’s have decided to throw down the gauntlet.  Let’s see if I can outrank my OTHER page for that keyword using this site and I’ll post the results later.  Stay tuned!

Tavis Yeung answers:

Start with downloading a submission button from (under the tools tab from their website). With just one click you get to submit your content to about 24 networking sites.

I also recommend downloading a status bar from to keep track of your website SEO easily. Make sure you download it as statusbar and not as toolbar.

I also use article marketing for SEO. With a unique piece of technology I get to submit my articles to over 200 article directories. This creates lots of backlinks, which help SEO further. You get to rank on the first pages of google easily doing that, thus getting more targeted visitors to your website.

Laura asks…

Why does my website not come up in Yahoo and bing results?

My website is indexed in but Its not coming up at Yahoo and Bing??? I have submitted my site in bing webmaster tools but still not found in yahoo and bing.
plz give good suggestions…

Tavis Yeung answers:

Since Yahoo! And Bing are big search engines, it will take time for your site to be indexed. Also, make sure you have your site on ‘guests can view’ mode. The bots from Y! And Bing will then appear on your site, index all the available content, and put it up.

Helen asks…

How i get my links count in Google?

I am new in SEO. I hope some one can answer me for this problem. I made lots of directory listing for my site and i get links from high page rank but non of them count to my site in Google. So what should i do to make my back links count in search engines? What is bing and how it can help my index?

Tavis Yeung answers:

It can take months to get your backlinks from directory listings. Bing is a search engine by Microsoft. It has similar webmaster tools as Google.

You can get free high quality backlinks from bookmark sites like digg, reddit, stumbleupon and delicious. You could also try socialmonkee, which has a free version that gives you 25 backlinks (daily) that are quickly indexed. Not very high quality, but still better than nothing.

David asks…

Tavis Yeung answers:

I think you have to submit sitemap in yahoo and Bing webmaster tool.

Donna asks…

What is the best way to drive traffic to your website?

I have a company website and we’d like to increase our visibility on google. I know the basics on heightening web traffic but I am wondering if their are any specific recommendations or suggestions I could use to get our site higher up on a websearch.

Tavis Yeung answers:

Register your website with google via google webmaster tools. Do the same for Bing, and Yahoo. Yahoo also has a webmaster section to register on. Build a sitemap and register your sitemap to all the search engines. Post/update frequently and gain backlinks. Word your files and articles to contain your keywords you are trying to target. Google images is also very powerful so alot of pictures and dont forget the TITLE and ALT fields in the html code, this is what google reads to tell what the picture is about.

Lizzie asks…

How long does it take for organic traffic to start hitting your site?

My site has been out for close to two months now. Does it take a long time to start seeing major organic searches?

Tavis Yeung answers:

Fist of all, 2 months is not really much time for a site to be online and to start getting any kind of organic traffic, you should be thinking in the 3, 4, 5 -month ballpark before it starts kicking in. Google will probable take longer– Yahoo and Bing, somewhat less.

As far as getting “major organic searches”, it’s going to take more than just time for that to happen. Here at Metapilot, we often get asked this question by new site owners. Besides time, you need to be investing resources into your site’s content, optimization, back links and analytics in order for the site to start paying you back with traffic.

In order to make sure things are on the right track at this point, here are a few things you look at:

First, do the following search in Google, Yahoo, and Bing: (replace with your domain name without the www).

Notice if all of the pages you’ve created on your site are listed in the results of each of those searches. If not, ensure that your site is not all in flash, that your navigation is not in flash or JavaScript, that your default page is not completely in Flash, and work on getting some decent links to your site.

Do each of the pages that show up in the search contain unique snippets (the snippet is the link and the description that is listed for each page)? If not, edit each of your pages’ html to include a unique title tag and meta description tag that is relevant specifically to it’s specific page.

Does the URL (web page address) that shows up for each listing in the search include the www or not? If not, you may have canonicalization issues to address. Go to Google webmaster tools and select your preferred domain, make sure that links to your homepage from within your site all point to your preferred domain, make sure that your designer used your preferred domain when linking to your site from their portfolio, and verify that any directory or other links you’ve been building are also pointing to your preferred domain.

Make sure that you’ve submitted your site through each of the search engine’s local/maps interfaces and that you’ve submitted it to the Yellow Pages, Citysearch,,, and

After doing all of that, focus on keyword research, building content pages focused around your keyword research, and on link building.
