Want to get started with #SEO Testing? – The only tutorial you need to read is here:
Add a comment...

I have a big .gov client with internal search result pages that are indexed, but occasionally the dynamic pages show a "no result" page. Should that page be generated as a 404 with some sort of rules that it's only shown when the search comes up empty? Or is there some other way of handling this that I'm not seeing?

I have seen this plenty of times and wanted to make sure others saw this from Google's latest Webmaster Hangout.

From Deepcrawl's newsletter:

If a site has a low proportion of indexed pages, this usually points to a technical issue than a quality issue. Compare the sitemap index counts and index status report for differences. Try splitting up sitemap file, checking indexed pages using info: query, that rel canonicals match those in sitemap file, hreflang, and internal linking. Also, uppercase, lowercase, trailing slashes all matter. Then check crawl stats to get idea of crawl rate and if it’s reasonable.
