Hmm I doubt someone has removed it as happened last time but this is most interesting.

Maybe they meant to ban googles.com and someone pushed the wrong button.

Or perhaps they want to run PR update, but ran into hiccup themselves :)

I would guess that virus targeting Microsoft via Google is the problem.

Why?

I think that there is a damage and accident inside Google.

If I am wrong then I am dead.

Google killed all my sites of year 2004. Only left the Home Page, but not for all. And a few scattered pages that they have been earsing drop by drop.

10 websites suffered the massacre. A friend complains that she suffered the same fate.

Google erased two of my new sites ( four months old ) dedicated to original content, with no copies, no advertising, no Amazon or eTailers. Lots of Personal Research talking to local people, etc ...

I hope that this is a "damaged hard disk" inside Google and not a policy of deleting the websites of those that produce Original Content.

I hope surfers who type in "google" or "google.com" in the Google search box to search for Google, were not too shocked to find that they couldn't google their favorite se.

My guess would be they're trying to be careful during the pre-IPO "quiet period" mandated by US securities law. For example, if G listed themselves as #1 for the term "best search engine in the world", some ambitious lawyer could make a case that they were "marketing" themselves inproperly before their IPO.

Just a thought.
