First post here .Hi to everybody.
"lost 165,000 listings"
In an other thread you mention that your site is 6 weeks old ,you didn't tell us what kind of site that is,another MFA scraper ,a rich content site ,what.
I have a a few months old heavy content and I mean heavy content travel site but with less than a hundred pages and a handful of backlinks that has not lost any pages ,instead , already ranks in the top of many 2 or3 keyword searchesin a few millions SERPS.What does that means.First Google is clever enough to index rich content quality sites with lot of information second there is not a sandbox unless the site is crap with thousands of backlinks.Now a bit out of topic the above but on topic ,can you all imagine the web without Google and only monopoly of MS .That will be a nightmare.OK maybe Google at the moment faces some kind of problems and maybe not.There is nothing wrong with the serps for the end user at the moment all first pages results on almost every kind of serch are more accurate then both Yahoo or MSN .Old established Pages with content are there and they have not lost positions at last the for 3-4 years .I just smell here that all this Anti Googlism in many threads are mostly from pages that have been droped due to scraping ,MFA ,farmlinking ,spam tec and so on ,I don't say that all site owners that lost rankings belong to those categories ,maybe some good sites have been droped but I strongly believe that for useful sites is temporary ,Google is reindexing at the moment and I am sure Google will fix all at the final step of Big Daddy with a new huge PR BL update.
And finally instead of moaning about Google remember just this.No Google No money No honey.
