Google Disables Supplemental Results Command

Evidence is mounting that Google is disabling or has disabled the query command that allows webmasters to show pages included in the supplemental results.

A member of the WebmasterWorld forum broached the subject by nothing that the command site: yaddayadda.com ****-view wasn’t bringing back supplemental results.

The problem was confirmed, and eventually explained by "jakegotmail":


[Matt Cutts] stated people are concentrating on it to much, like the early days of PR. So they made TBPR only update every 3-4 months. Now sup pages can’t be found with a query.

I feel this is a terrible comparison, and webmasters have a very valid reason to see which pages do not rank. TBPR is one thing, but a supped page is something worth noting and assessing, bottom line.

So there you go, people wouldn’t stop picking at it.

Over at Search Engine Roundtable, Barry Schwartz added the new development to evidence that Google is poised to drop the supplemental results altogether.

But there is hope that maybe Mr. Cutts will take a cue from his poll and include a way to view the results via Webmaster Central.

    I’ve noticed this about a month ago when I entered the command for my website, and I was surprised that no supplemental page comes out on the result. I navigate to the last 5 pages to see if they change the order, but nothing. So I posted a question at Aaron Wall seobook.com abou this. Seems like no one knows until now.
