Article Disappeared

Postby Johnsy » Fri Jul 10, 2020 12:51 pm

The Ethernet Audio article from July 2017 has mysteriously vanished from DuckDuckGo's search results.

For the last couple of years, simply searching for 'Ethernet Audio' returned the article near the top of the search results. Today, no amount of additional detail (including pasting the link into the search box) seems to find it.

The same search on Google still brings it up just below the Wikipedia AoE page, but DDGo: Nothing.

I believe some work has been going on on the SOS website, so I thought I'd let you know just in case something happening there is a factor, and may be affecting other articles too.

Otherwise, I'm at a loss.

It's the first hit in Google. Seems if anything it's a DDG search/results/index issue, rather than an SOS one, and those things are rather out of users' control...

I added a site: tag to the DDG search results and the article shows up, so it's still in their indexes.

(Third result for me)

Thanks Desmond.

Just tried another couple of SEs:

Bing: Adding 'Sound on Sound' to 'Ethernet Audio' brings it up just below Wiki AoE page.

Startpage: 'Ethernet Audio' alone is enough - like Google.

Yahoo: Same as Bing.
