Its the provider company that has been banned by google and it now effecting the other resellers (me included) as we link to a white labeled quote engines.

I know the provider has been spending heavily in SEO over the last 4 months, maybe they should have read a few post here or google guidelines - but why does that effect us?

At least 4 of the resellers have dropped out of google in recent days.

Our site has been gone since Saturday morning. The site was stable for last few years but now its history.

Ok, as of today's update, the indexed link to my home page (www.example.com) has been replaced by a link to www.example.com/?querystringvariable=1234, which is located on one of our advertising sites.

Has anybody else experienced this and know why it's happening? What can I do to fix it?

A fix for cannonical (www, non-www) issues.

Right?

reseller, the changes I noticed on your DCs yesterday are now live on google.co.uk.

Ha, ha, it doesn't look like they will ever fix those! But, to quote Google: what canonical problem, what 302 hijacking problem? They don't exist!

I'm starting to see some strange and/or interesting things occurring in some serps as well.

Several (very old & large) top sites have begun dissappearing (although, this will probably correct itself), and several completely irrelevant serps (like a link to a fantasy football program coming up for a totally unrelated search) popping in here and there.

Don't know of it's an all-out update or not, but it is certainly some kind of tweak being done.'

At any rate....back to the usual grind....more content, more links.....more content, more links......

A site I watch just vanished... it was very small and clean.

It's nowhere to be found in SERPs.

Do you think there has been some sort of glitch?

Another large PR7 site is still listed and has PR on the home page but all inners have changed to PR0.

Very odd.

Hi

Yesterday my site PR 4 and around 100,000 pages listed (mostly supplemental!)

Now PR0 (white not grey) and site:www.domain.com shows

'Your search - site:www.domain.com - did not match any documents. '

!

Completely gone....

site: function seems fine for other domains

yahoo and MSN still fine (usual low traffic but at least still there!)

A 100,000 page site with only a PR4? That would suggest the site is relatively new. If so, it stands to reason the site used some kind of automated system/datafeed, etc. to each 100,000 pages. If that's the case, you probably got the boot (i.e. banned).

If not, I would wonder why 100,000 pages had gone supplemental in teh first place.

Sorry to hear that.

So it seems that the folks at the plex are doing som tweaking not reshuffling or everflux.

It sure seems like a mixed bag....I'm hearing from people who have had their sites completely removed in the past 24 hours. Most of my sites are fluctuating and showing a lower number of pages indexed, though it's probably more accurate than the previously inflated number. I also have one site that had been grey-barred for years now in the index (I never knew why it was grey-barred in the first place, it hasn't changed much in years either).

Yes. It might be a mixture of algo driven tweaking plus manual interventions.

We still have all of our pr, but we have been nailed in the serps. For over 2 years we were #1 for a very popular travel search term, now, depending upon the datacenter we are 35th to 45th.

All of the other pages that were in the top 10, about 50 of them, are either totally gone or so deep in the serps that they may as well be gone. Traffic is off by about 45% since yesteday.

None of the serps are showing a date of visit indicating to me that the bot has not come by yet, hopefully that will help.

We also uploaded a sitemap.xml page and listed it wih G.... hopefully that will get them to spider it quicker.

We'll see. Not selling the house yet....

Interesting. I've now read across several different forums about 3 dozen or so webmasters of relatively older, more established sites in varied sectors (myself included) who have experienced EXACTLY the symptoms you described above.

I wonder if it was just some new filter they're tweaking, or if there was a problem with the last major crawl.

we do have exactly the same problem - we lost around 45% of the traffic we received from Google last thursday.

Since the beginning of this month GBot is reading an amount of data from our site that is huge. Every day around 10'000 to 20'000 hits. Every day. Peak days have been as high as 45'000 hits.

I was expecting something like an update / shuffling ... but I have expected more traffic - not less :-))

travelin cat, exactly my case but drop was from July 16th, Gbot visits daily my travel site and all pages indexed again and again but still ex no. 1 serps for years now 3rd to 5th page. PR same though, even increased for some pages, gone up also in Google directory PR. Ranking tops in MSN which sends me around a thousand unique visitors daily which is what keeps me going and not closing the shop.
