Since Google initiated the supplemental results in 2003 there has been a lot of confusion on their impact. Now there are a lot of complaints about this latest move to remove the label.

The best thing to do, forget about it. Either you are doing a good job and your pages are indexed, or, you need to work on your SEO. Getting hung up on something like the supplemental is a good way to lose your focus on what is important.

Focus on your content, and the technical aspects of good pages and the rest will take care of itself.
