site gone from the ATW index
main page disappears

 11:42 pm on Mar 24, 2003 (gmt 0)

I've been using ATW to check on link count for a site and today it came up "no entries for..." The number of links, etc showed up and when I check for pages the usual number came up except for the main page (index.htm). Any thoughts on why and what action to take?

Not that this is much help matkat, but I have noticed the same thing.

Not just one or two domains either, and unrelated domains at that....

Matkat, an index page go missing seems like a perpetual problem with ATW. I have no good idea why that is happening in some cases, but reports have been made here frequently.
It does however not seem to be any penalty but rather a technical thing. From what I have seen so far the pages usually reappear in time. You might want to give it some time. Else I would contact ATW through their webmaster contact channels on their site, they have been known for excellent response.

Good grief. I just checked, and the bozos at ATW lost the home page of one of my sites. Looks like ATW, like Wisenut, is an amateur act not ready for prime time.

Thank you all for your replies. It's good to know that I'm not the only one that loses things as I get older. I'll ignore ATW and get on with more important work.

This is very very common with ATW and it is an ATW bug. If you are lucky enough for 'ATWguy' to read this post and are willing to help, you are lucky.

The page was back in ATW index this morning. Thanks to all who replied and/or helped with this.
