Google Dumps The Supplemental Results Label:
As many expected, Google has announced that it is dumping the supplemental result label for pages listed within its supplemental index. Does that mean the supplemental index has gone away? No. But Google promises that being in the supplemental index versus the main index should be less of an issue for site owners, going forward.
Back in September 2003, Google unveiled the supplemental index as a way for it to index more pages from the web but not get bogged down actually searching through those billions and billions of them unless necessary. By and large, it was less important pages that ended up in the supplemental index. If Google's main index -- containing what it considered the best or most important pages -- didn't seem to have a match, then Google would look to the supplemental index for listings.
