    Question Single Page Deindexed

    Hi There!

    I've never had this happen personally, but thought I'd seem out some insight here.

    I've got a friend who's site had a single page fall out of organic search results. She previously showed up #3, but the page itself is no longer indexed. No manual action, but a definite drop in traffic. She did go in and change her title tag, and almost instantly fell out of the search results. It was then changed back, but the visibility was not restored. Nothing else has changed. Any insight is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    When did they change the tag? You could use this tool to resubmit the page.

    Thanks, Scott.

    I'm not sure why they changed the title tag other than to experiment.

    No issues with canonical?

    No issues with robots.txt?

    No issues with a noindex, nofollow directive on the page itself?

    No issues with x meta robots telling Google not to index the page?

    Most of the time something like this happens to a single page, it's due to one of the factors Joshua pointed out.

    It's always the simple errors like this that mess things up :P
