try sitemaps! try sitemaps! thats all it seems to come back and say - funny you'll never guess what my email said "try sitemaps"
It's anwers like this that indicate how messed up things are over at Google. You never needed sitemaps before but we messed things up so bad that now the only way into our index is a special tool that sill might not help you. Or ar they implying that to be indexed you HAVE to use sitemaps but they phrase it in such a way that it doesn't sound like extortion. I think that if you didn't need a Google sitemap for 10 years that it's someone elses screw up. Google staff are no doubt working hard to fix what they totally blew it on but these emails are insulting. It's not a good strategy unless you are intending to piss everyone off. If that's the plan great. If it's not then they need to change the automatically generating email to something like, "Sorry we F'd up so bad. Please be patient while we do our jobs. Don't waste your time fixing things that aren't your fault."
