I guess i get penalty. Actually i didnt do any spam or any different thing for more than 6 months.
now mydomain.com removed and doesnt seen on SERPs. but other pages of my site still indexed and still seen on SERPs.
and mydomain.com/ has PR0, mydomain.com (without slash) still has PR6
Anyone see this before? when will it get indexed again.
Is there anyway to ask to any google department why am i dropped?
I think it might be caused by people linking to you without the slash, or perhaps another redirect of some kind.
(*) I'm sorry to admit i haven't read the whole thread but i will, eventually. It's just one of those days, and i haven't had the time yet. If i'm totally wrong (as i very well might be), please bear with me.

Yes, there may be a problem with Google, I think we can all agree to that. Any resource as large as Google is going to have problems. Unfortunately those problems are having an adverse effect on a select group of websites.
Since we do not know the history of those sites, their configuration, the promotion strategies used, etc., we cannot effectively determine what is going on.
Since this topic has made it to the Home Page of WebmasterWorld, you can be assured that someone at Google is paying close attention. It is this type of publicity that they cannot afford. Just be patient and hope that an authoritative response from Google is forthcoming on this issue.
How can somebody hack our system in 2 days. can you believe this.
From my understanding, hacking can be done in 2 minutes. Yes, I can believe that it is possible for a nasty competitor to hack into your servers and wreak havoc. If you are in a competitive enough industry and are holding top spots across the board, someone may be motivated to take steps such as hacking. Certain industries are rampant with foul play.
Let's keep this thread on-topic please, and limited to those sites whose Webmasters received the e-mail.

I have investigated:
For a domain where the index page is index.php
Google search for the domain/index.htm (non existant page) gives:
Google can show you the following information for this URL:
etc... and the link to gives all links to the main url
Google search for the domain/index.php gives:
Sorry, no information is available for the URL domain/index.php
I have requested the removal of /index.htm from one of my sites which only has /index.php (currently PR5, unused site) under the "remove dead link" option. I will keep you informed of the progress - whether the homepage disappears from the index / loses PR.
