Arrse & Google

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by oldbaldy, Aug 18, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    I started a thread on Arrse & soon found on a google search it was coming up on page 1.
    This was far more high profile that I wanted & so I amended my original post.
    Now when 'googling' I find my entry is still showing on page 1 & still showing the first line of my original post although when hitting the hyperlink it takes you to the amended post.
    Anyone any idea how long Google's algorithm will continue to show it or is it stuck like that forever?

    Cheers Flaggie, looks like only GCO or BCO can do it & to be honest it's not that important, if I could do it myself though I would.

    Google will update to the new version within a day or so. We can ask for a manual removal but if it's not critical then I'd rather not at the moment. Your shout.

    It'll drop off the next time Google crawl the site and refresh their cache. No idea how frequently that happens OB but I'd imagine it's fairly often.

    Edit: Just like Good CO said up there! ^

    Cheers GCO, as I said it's not critical & hitting the link gives the amended version anyway. Thanks for the offer though.

    Nor me Sixty, just I posted one evening having had a few & next morning decided to check everything & thought 'Oh shit'!!!
    & luckily I was able to delete a follow up post I had!

    Things have now changed.
    For reference, here's the timeline:
    Evening Day 1. Posted new thread.
    Morning Day 2. Searched Google using thread title & it came up on page one.
    Morning Day 2. Altered slightly some wording in first line of the thread. Check Google but it stays showing original first line.
    Day 3 all day: Google still shows original first line & stays on page 1
    Morning Day 4. Google now shows amended first line & still on page 1.
    Shows how Arrse can hit high up on searches.
