I noticed today when I checked Google that all of a sudden we can't find our site by looking for it by domain! I can't imagine what on earth could have prompted Google to dump us. We've employed no tactics that could be in the least considered spam or keyword stuffing or anything. Google Guy if you're out there I am desperate for an answer. This business is just starting to flourish. If we've been penalized for some reason it could be the end of us.
Just thought I'd add that we do still appear to have PR on our internal pages. This seems to just be showing for our Index page. Also we are still showing backward links at this time. Is this a glitch? A burp? Google please say excuse me. ;)
google search ---> mysite.com ---> no results found
google search ---> WWW.mysite.com ---> site is there no problem
the problem is most users probably as a short-cut don't want to have to enter the 'www' just to find your site (if they were looking for it)
I checked my site again and my PR was back. Maybe google is updating their index in parts so that not all sections of the index are bad at any given time.
Who know I've be confused for the past month or so.
Google is really messed up right now. Don't worry about the toolbar if you are still getting referrals from Google.

<<If you still have traffic coming from Google, I wouldn't worry about it. This has been reported before, and I think the next index would help with this. In the meantime, just don't worry about the toolbar.. >>
