There was a huge hue and cry all across the internet recently as websites lost their rankings in Google search. Their disappearance from the Google’s index was due to an error in the functioning of Google’s parked domain classifier, as revealed by Matt Cutts on Google+.
This explanation by Matt has laid to rest the rumors flying about over optimization being responsible for the sites losing their search rankings. The entire episode of ‘Google algorithm strikes again’ began earlier this week as webmasters thronged the forums with complaints of their sites being de-indexed from Google.
Google has described its classifier, the new algorithm that automatically detects parked domains (sites just filled with ads with no valuable content for our users). Did your site get affected from the error too? Do share your experiences.
