Pages dropped from desktop search results, but still rank on mobile.
1
I am currently experiencing an issue for Veneta.com where some of our pages are missing from the organic search results specifically on desktop.

On mobile these pages are shown in the search results at their original position. Since 24-06-2021 we see that pages are dropping out of the desktop search results.

Has anyone ever experienced a similar issue before or have any direction to where to look to fix this?
 
Steps to reproduce the issue
1) Search for ‘rolgordijnen’ on mobile Google NL (https://www.google.nl/search?q=rolgordijnen)
2) You will see our page (veneta.com/rolgordijnen/) on the first page of the mobile search results
3) Search for ‘rolgordijnen’ on desktop Google NL (https://www.google.nl/search?q=rolgordijnen)
4) You will see that our page (veneta.com/rolgordijnen/) is absent from the desktop search results
 
These pages are not new and have not changed in the last couple of months. We already looked into all the related support documentation from Google but found no issues that could be possible problems.

The URL inspection toon in Google Search Console also shows no sign of errors for these pages. Google is able to crawl and index these pages, you can see this if you search for the URLs on Google.



I added a list of URLs below that are currently facing this issue, but every few days we notice that new pages also experience this problem.
 
Things I already checked
•       Robots.txt/web.config does not block Googlebot from crawling these pages
•       In the log files we see that both the mobile and desktop Googlebot has crawled our pages with success
o   Every few days more pages are experiencing this problem, leading me to believe that this issue happens when the desktop Googlebot visits a page
o   It does, however, not happen to all pages that are crawled by the (desktop) Googlebot
•       There is no manual penalty or security issues reported in Google Search Console
•       These pages have not been submitted to be removed in Google Search Console
•       No changed were made to these pages

Hi  Mark
 
Has anyone ever experienced a similar issue
 
Until today, I'd personally have said 'new to me'.  Just earlier I replied to this...
 
I'll ask about.

Hi John,

From what I read it indeed looks like to be the same issue.
I heard from another SEO specialist in Australia that they are experiencing the same problem, maybe this is a bug on Google's end.

I don't know if it is relevant, but in that week I noticed the problem, I added a new domain to the disavow file (removed it again last week). That's the only thing that has changed since the period before were we did not experience this problem.

I asked the other SEO specialist and he mentioned that he also changed the disavow file some time before this issue started happening. This could totally be coincidental, but could may be have triggered something.

Thanks for your help!

Mark
