Why Does Google Have A Supplemental Index?

Q: Why does Google have a supplemental index?

A: Well it has to take a dump somewhere!

“Supplemental”. Might as well read “a page that is temporarily banned due to quality issues” 😉

    Pete,

    I’ve seen good sites, with good pages go into the supps. If they meet a quality threshold they soon reappear. If they don’t, they’re effectively finished.

    Ditto. Link quality, mostly.

    What I have noticed is about supps is that. When a new page is created on a website, Google indexes it and wait a some time to check it gets any backlinks, else it puts them in supplemental. Its especially the case with newer sites.
