    Can we have the list of the once which are no longer being indexed?

    I confirm that this is correct ! 
    I’ve noticed a couple of hundred back links that are missing from my websites…

    The PokerGosh, have you noticed any decline in ranking?

    Are the directories still online?  A lot of “seo friendly” directories were published by the same networks.  If the networks closed up shop the directories would have vanished around the same time.

    I run http://www.ilawyersource.com, a large law firm directory, and everything is normal here but this is a large niche directory.

    I do directory submissions for my clients on a regular basis and I did notice that a few I used disappeared after the recent updates.

    I operate a niche insurance directory. Seems fine here.  However, I can’t say that we weren’t hit by Panda Penguin.

    Again. Ran a test on the entire 100 directories in the Info Vilesilencer Top 100 directory list, and every single directory is indexed. Are you guys just looking at the crap directories, if so. why? Because why would Google bother indexing said crap in the first place. I’m really surprised at you Barry, I thought you were an SEO guru. Shouldn’t you be advocating quality not quantity?

    Small does not always mean shitty for your information… And even if they are crap as you say, it may be good to observe why it happened, it’s also a way to progress. It’s normal for a guru, to take your words, to be curious about such things I think.

    Did you see the thread on WMW that triggered the blog posts? Because it looked like someone that didn’t know what they were talking about suggesting that something big is happening. When in reality I’ve seen no changes. But, I do take your point – It is good to be curious and to check things out. Not knocking the blog post at all, just wondering why the drama… From the findings I think it is safe to say business as usual – for now :)

    We have noticed a handful of directories have gone. But nothing like a hundred (yet)!

    I haven’t noticed any of my regular directories being removed, however I do only use a low number of large directories for my submissions.
