Just attempted a search on google.com and got this seeveral times :

Google

Server Error
The service you requested is not available at this time.
Service error -27.

Presumably its a tempoary glitch, but I have never seen it before

Interesting that it's reported on BBC News Sci/Tech

[news.bbc.co.uk...]

but not on Google News Sci/Tech

[news.google.com...]

Some kind of block on Google stories or just waiting for Google to catch up?

It will take awhile for them all to catch up John.

Is it possible that it could just be effecting certain IPs? I've done some testing and I can't get to it from our office systems, but we tested on a dial out and it worked fine.

At least we are getting some Amazon orders so we don't have to send the shipping department home early.

I am sure it is a data center issue. Can somebody give an ip of a datacenter that is working?

Working @ google.co.uk too (at last) and it seems much faster than it used to be.

its a new variation of the mydoom virus hitting all the search engines.

looks for email lists on infected computers, does a search engine query for each email, sends to all email addresses.

Typical, I start the first thread (3.28) in the Supporters Forum and someone a minute later gets all the glory. Now I know how the guy who started Froogles.com feels!

Anyway, I had to leave the exciting developments to play golf, shot my best round of the year, so I suppose I can live with it.

Do we have an idea of how long it was offline for? It will affect all my stats for an adwords campaign I started this morning and will need to let the boss know why the results weren't that good.

I've just read a Dutch message (and reproduced it): the server error occurs in the Netherlands for a search on "hotmail.com". Other unrelated searches are OK.

From SlyGuys Url

"At no point was the Google Web site significantly impaired, and service for all users and networks is expected to be restored shortly," the company said in a statement.

Apparently, not being able to use their seach is not significantly inparing Google. Wow! They must be good.

I also noticed Search Partners managed to continue with Adwords and Adsense. I wonder where their priority lies?

Oh and Back on .es

McAfee give a list of the sites affected [us.mcafee.com]

I think it could be, just because of the following error:

Your client does not have permission to get URL /search?num=100&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&c2coff=1&q=hotmail.com&meta= from this server. (Client IP address:****.xxx.xxx.xxx

same for gmail.com, mail.com, yahoomail.com and some others. So a correlation to email is definetly given

The implications of this are HUGE. Hopefully Google’s staff will be working!around the clock! to re-vamp their!security and capacity!. The genie is out of the bottle on taking down the search engines.

The BBC 9pm radio news just said said that "the search engine Google in the UK was down for several hours today and thought to be infected with the MyDoom computer virus".

Sorry, just logged in here and I have not read any of the rest of the thread yet.

<edit>Just looked at some logs. Traffic dropped to almost nothing from 12:20 to 16:40 UTC today</edit>

<edit>When I came online today, around 19:00 UTC, my firewall rejected 500 attempted accesses within just 2 or 3 minutes. Reconnecting with a different IP brought a few hundred attempts in the next few minutes. A third connect attempt with yet another new IP address assigned, saw the attempted accesses down to just a few per hour, as normal. Was that virus related at all?</edit>

Search engine traffic to my web sites are up about 15% today over a normal Monday, with an overall higher percentage coming from Google searches.

Anybody else seeing this?

Google broke in November 2003.

Who cares anymore?

In the first instance Google broke it; but now someone else has.

But I guess in this case it will be fixed sooner.

It looks like some IPs are blocked by google.
I changed the IP and it worked again immediately.

If you're getting IPs blocked - I suggest you check your hosts file...
