Check if the site has cache in Google? Listing appears anywhere? try searching allinurl:www.site..com , and see if it has title tag and description?

as googleguy suggests, try
in a google search. this will tell if you are in the index or not. you may be in the index, but just dropped in the rankings.
if you are legit / clean site, then you can contact google. read the florida thread, [webmasterworld.com...] and the first post tells how to contact him if you have a serious problem.

I know your feeling. I have a site that has been in Google's top 5 search results pages for most search phrases for the past 6 months. Today I discovered it is not in the top 100 pages! It is still indexed and cached. This happened once before and after one or two months it reappeared in the top 5. When this happens you can't help but wonder if it resulted from something you did. It als hurts when it affects your advertising income.
I guess we have no choice but to "hang-in."

Doing a "site:www.mysite.com -asdfqewsr" shows that Google has over 2,000 pages indexed.
Only problem is my client's site does not appear anywhere in the SERPS.
I have contacted Google, but I didn't get any useful information.

Sunset_Jim - Did you do anything for your site to reappear one or two months later in the SERPS?

I just discovered that my site is listed in the top 5 SERPS on about half of the data centers for a popular search term, but is not listed on the others.

Why do you think this is happening?
Did you change something since the last Google update?
I noticed I have 6,000 more pages indexed since the last update. But the site is no longer in the SERPS for almost all of its keyword phrases ...
Maybe Google got too many pages indexed too fast?

>Sunset_Jim - Did you do anything for your site to reappear one or two months later in the SERPS?
No, I didn't do anything to cause it to reappear the last time this happened. Yesterday I found my site in some of the data centers with the same SERPS as before.

How do check the different data centers?

Same thing happened to my on my own site....i tried the link that athinktank posted - just gave me a log in, even though Im logged in.
Im desperate to find out what has happend, I still have page rank - it is really strange, also when I check the domain name, it has been index but the description has been changed to content information.
What is going on?
| 8:47 pm on Nov 18, 2003 (gmt 0)|
It's there just real deep. I finaly found all my sissing terms like around 500 something.

I feel your pain. I can no longer find our site using any of our keyphrases. Previously we were on page 1.
I entered our sites domain into google and its still in the index. I don't know what to do.

Well from what I can understand, these things do happen, have happend, and will happen.
Its a shame, yes - last month it happend to my main competitor.....and this month to me - the only thing I could be guilty of is over optimisation on content in my home page - I still have page rank so this might not be the case.
Im going to check all my links to make sure they are in the right categories, and none of them have been penalized. Im going to double check everything again, if I find I have not got a problem I will contact Google and if all else fails, simply wait.
I think the point is this - if your link campaign is a strategic one, it can produce more traffic than search engines. If you are not generating any leads/traffic from your link partners then you need to either get some more or change the ones you got for better ones.
Link building is only really good if it brings you traffic, a link from a PR0 that gives you a client is better than a PR10 site that doesn't.
I think my solution is strategic internet marketing....if I find I have a problem or get a response from Google i'll let you all know.

One more thing, good pages that did not have much text content had PR5, they have disappeared from the rankings as well....something is wrong there.
| 11:53 pm on Nov 19, 2003 (gmt 0)|
I sure hope these results aren't permanent. I emailed Google and was told our site was not "manually" penalized ... not sure what that means?

Which address did you use for your google e-mail?
I need to contact them regarding our issue of switching from two similar URL's that were mirrored to one URL 301 to the other as our primary:
I was thinking about using the address googleguy posted along with the subject line of Florida update because this does relate to the florida update - but, it's sort of a different issue and I don't want to e-mail the wrong address...

Please tell me the difference between typing in allinurl:www.mysite.com and link:www.mysite.com

reply from google reads:
Thank you for your note.
We have confirmed that your site is still in the index and not penalized in any way. As you read on our information page, this is most likely a temporary problem which will be fixed during our next crawl.
:-) - found out my hosting company have had issues a month ago that have effected me.

That means you site ranks bad with new Google algorithm. Just wait for this hurricane to calm down. Itís not over yet...

I got the same email from Google.
"That means you site ranks bad with new Google algorithm.

Do you think it's over now (12/3/03)? I hope not.

sorry to get OT but could someone tell me how to check exactly how many pages from my website have been picked up by Google?
I forgot the search operand.
