Getting Out of Supplemental Results

Shoemoney posted yesterday about how Aaron Wall gave him advice on how to get his blog out of the supplemental results in Google. According to Shoemoney, after one month, his blog is out of supplemental results, and his traffic from Google increased 1400%. He also said that most of it was done in the robots.txt file.

In the comments, a user posted the content of Shoemoney’s robots.txt file. Here is what he posted at that time.

User-Agent: Googlebot
Disallow: /link.php
Disallow: /gallery
Disallow: /gallery2
Disallow: /gallery2/
Disallow: /gallery/
Disallow: /category/
Disallow: /page/
Disallow: /pages/
Disallow: /feed/
Disallow: /feed

It looks like Shoemoney is avoiding supplementals by getting rid of duplicate content issues. That is why he disallowed the gallery, category, pages and feed directories.

Shoemoney then responded that the robots.txt was only 50% of the problem. The rest was overcome by adding dynamic title and description tags plus more on page internal linking.

There you go. SEO advice straight from Shoemoney. He claims he sucks at SEO, but it looks like he is getting some good advice from the right people.
