My site is unindexing from google. My site, which was indexed simi-well, has gone from 232 pages indexed to 159 pages and it wasn't a sudden change. From one day to the next a few pages would come out of google's index. And I have a feeling the pages which were indexed have lowered it's rankings. I use to get 1 to 20 visitors a day from search engines, now I don't get any. What's the problem? :(

Hi Donald,

I'm sorry, it's really hard to say what might have happened and why your pages were taken out of the index, Google can be finicky. Have you checked your webmaster tools to see if you are getting specific messages from Google about pages of your site or certain errors. This might be a place to start. You can also post this question on Google's Help Forum, possibly other people are having this problem as well.

webmasters doesn't indicate any errors of any kind.

I hope it's not for lack of editing / changing pages because it is impossible to continue editing each page on a regular basis, I generally only edit main pages and new pages.
