Trulia Falls Out of SERPs in Google: What Happened?

By
Real Estate Agent with One Sotheby's International Realty- Miami Beach Real Estate

This morning while performing my morning ritual "Googling" of "Miami Beach Real Estate", I noticed that Trulia, who has held the #1 spot for some time, was no where to be found.

A quick e-mail to my real estate web guy, Brad revealed that:

"It's not just Miami. Something has happened to Trulia. I was talking to another client about this on my morning call. Trulia has fallen out of tons of search results. 

 

It's something specific to Google

Raleigh real estate - Google rank (not in top 100) - Yahoo rank #4

Houston real estate - Google rank (not in top 100) - Yahoo rank #4

Dallas real estate - Google rank (not in top 100) - Yahoo rank #5

Ann Arbor Real Estate - Google rank 159 - Yahoo rank #2

 

This is only a small example"

I'd love to hear what SEO experts believe and or attribute this to!

That is so interesting.  I thought of Eric's post about Trulia cloaking when I saw your post Kevin.

Trulia is still performing well in the Northern Nevada area and my posts there are showing up in the first 1-2 pages of results.
