Thanks ohno. I just scoured my statcounter stats and in all cases it was an unknown browser with no referring link and no identified landing page. The visitor was 'Google' and they were from:
The Dalles, Oregon
Council Bluffs, Iowa
Morganton, North Carolina
Charleston, South Carolina
Hoofdstedelijk Gewest, Belgium
Mountain View, California
It doesn't seem like I've been de-indexed for any pages, just slipped off the search into oblivion. I don't know if it's permanent or just short term. Only time will tell I guess. The only thing I do know for sure is that emailing Google for anything (including reconsideration) will be a waste of time, bandwidth and electricity. I'd have more chance of getting a reply from my dead grandmother.
Like the last few months (since I got hammered in July) all I can do is keep adding new fresh content and hope. I'm afraid to even work on getting backlinks in case I get further penalized for it. Ugh what a mess.
