All,My mistake. The pages in Google's index that I used for sampling - the ones that have "Sorry, ..." in their description in Google search results - are cached pages. I assumed incorrectly that those pages were based on recent indexing (e.g., in the past few days).I think we can actually stick to the original plan of Google re-indexing and the search results de-emphasizing the <language>.zero.wikipedia.org links within the next 30 days.I still find it strange that there are <language>.zero.wikipedia.org links that turned up higher in the search engine rankings than their better-established <language>.wikipedia.org counterparts. But I suppose with fewer competing page elements, especially on long-tail articles with fewer or no direct links to the desktop page, this is maybe not totally unexpected.-AdamOn Tue, May 28, 2013 at 1:49 PM, Adam Baso <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
Hello All,We had shelved my patch, patch 64629, in hopes that an earlier patch, patch 61809 (bug 35233), would resolve the issue naturally as Google re-indexed. But it appears Google has re-indexed and yet the .zero.wikipedia.org URLs are still present in Google's index, instead of the <language>.wikipedia.org URLs.I have thus resubmitted patch 64629 for re-review. We will need to further discuss whether it is appropriate to have Google completely remove .zero.wikipedia.org links from their cache, or if perhaps we need to open a support thread with Google about canonical URLs.On Tue, May 28, 2013 at 1:13 PM, Kul Wadhwa <email@example.com> wrote:
