What did BigAdda do to get delisted?

Not sure, if anyone noticed – Google has pretty much bombed BigAdda.com. It has only ~4K pages indexed by Google (Yahoo has ~160K). BigB’s blog is not even in Google’s index anymore.

Not sure if it is an error on Google’s side or an error on BigAdda’s side (like misconfigured robots.txt – They don’t have one actually). Surprisingly, there is no page rank info available for BigAdda.com as well.

Alexa has been messed up since a few days, but Quantcast shows a huge drop in US traffic, which most likely could be because of the delisting.

Bollywood Mantra also saw a drop of 1/3 of the total pages indexed by Google for a last couple of weeks, but that did not affect any traffic and the number is constant since then. The drop of Bollywood Mantra’s index seems to be part of change in Big G’s algorithm change.

If you have any information about BigAdda or have any conspiracy theories please do share in comments!

    No wonder google blocked Bigadda. It was full of adult content anyways.

    A further deeper digging reveals that
    1) bigadda.in is using the name “BigAdda” as a trademark.
    2) The TOC of the site talks about a company named “BigAdda Inc”
    3) The owner of the site is *possibly* also a promoter of porn..

    The post based on further digging.

    nice find mate! This is a model lesson for aspiring netpreneurs. Don't depend on google alone for traffic. Make sure that your site name becomes a brand name. Cant wait till I blog about this

    Alexa rankings can't be the sole determinants of measuring a sites importance and popularity as the http://www.alexa.com/data/details/main/fortuneh… rankings do not take into account all the browser types like Windows Vista etc.

    Very interesting. It'd be interesting to know the reason why Google has been dropping sites. Thanks for sharing this!
