I found each of your pages at http://www.pti.co.il/ to have a Google page rank
of 5/10 indicating they are all listed in Google.
I wish people would not make assumptions about the Google toolbar. Using the
advanced search on Google: www.pti.co.il as site and phrase www.pti.co.il/
returned 1 result, the one Gabor mentioned. As mentioned in the last I-search no
other pages using that extension were found in the searches I did. I have seen
the Google toolbar touted as indicating everything but where Osama bin Laden is
Not to discount entirely what it is said to indicate. I'm only making the
point that the toolbar has a purpose. Anything beyond that purpose such
as making SEO decisions requires more investigation to verify what is
**indicated** by the toolbar. It could just be that a number of sites have
linked to this good resource and that is what it is indicating.
advanced features of a SE or a quick solution, Marketleap's, SE saturation
tool are a good way to verify this. It requires a short amount of time to
analyze the results below and see a problem. Unfortunately there are few
sites to compare to get any compelling data. Perhaps Gabor would know
of some competitors that I couldn't identify to include in the results.
Google/AOL=2 (only 1 page, it could be adding the two for combined result)
This does seem to indicate that Gabor does have some sort of problem
with Google. What that problem is specifically, only Google knows for
sure. But clearly there is a problem which from what I have seen isn't
"best practices" related.
So, I can only come to the conclusion that it is "extension"
related, or Google doesn't care for something he is doing or has done
that can't be seen in his code, architecture or backlinks. I agree
with Detlev's comment in the last I-search for the most part engines
will index anything that renders.
However, Google may be the exception. Not
that it won't index them, just that quite possibly extensions that aren't
widely known seem to discourage it from following links within the site.
This could be behind the .aspx "rumor" and a host of others where file
extensions are concerned. There are a lot of rogue programs out there
Google is smart to follow a "no follow" rule, if it is in fact doing so.
The bottom line is, always investigate, no matter who is providing the
info. This adds to your knowledge and you may someday get an
advantage from something you pickup. Something that those
following the herd and the self proclaimed "gurus" don't
pickup because they are only following blindly and doing what
someone else says to do, or, is doing.
There definitely is a herd mentality. If that "advice" is ill
advised such as the "hallway" strategy, and hidden links that came
about because of a certain newsletter a large portion of the industry
gets led down a path that leads to nowhere, de-listing and the Industry
getting a "suspect" reputation. Always look at where the info comes from
and decide whether it is simply looking to sell more of its products or
services or offering **commercial grade** information. In short, don't
be a lemming, or watch that last step, it's a reaaaaaal doooozy.
That is my opinion, take from it what you will!;)
Bill, I didn't mean to single you out! Your advice gave me a chance to
make a point with a good illustration.:)
