Site completely disappeared gone and out of here TinkyWinky
Msg#: 20794 posted 4:47 pm on Dec 24, 2003 (gmt 0) Very odd - my site has completely vanished from google. It was a reasonable PR5 homepage with about 40,000 pages of varying PR and was driving about 25,000 searches a day:
Have tried :
And nothing - it disappeared yesterday morning and can't find anywhere not even on www2 or www3.... any ideas from anyone?
Interestingly I can find pages using :
Is it a temporary blip or a ban. I do have some seo like h1, alt and obviously some text titles and description meta-wise.
But the site is no different from any of the PPC affiliate sites or the supposed 300 odd shopping portals that all seem to still be in existence.
Any ideas? Am I able to contact Google to get an explanantion - if so where do I email? GG can you help?

I emailed Google about the disappearance of my site from the Serps (I wanted to know if I was under some kind of penalty) - just got a standard reply telling me to look at the webmaster guidelines etc etc. :( The email address I used was firstname.lastname@example.org TinkyWinky

Yes did have two days when was down at end of Nov and then about a week later on 6th Dec....
I guess it could be that - I have heard on the grapevine that a couple of other search sites have disappeared.... could just be a coincidence!
I will email the search qulaity email - thanks!
Here's hoping google's not about to start removing "search engine" type sites

that's bad luck. I would think that emailing them at this time of year might not herald a quick response.
If they don't respond then best (and I know this is easier said than done) pick yourself up and try a different approach.
Keep your chin up!
