Apparently, Google has dropped every page below the "images" directories on both of out site. Am I reading this correctly? No other pages from my site have been dropped that I can tell and I haven't suffered any loss of PageRank. Any ideas about why this has happened?
You are not alone in your problems. I visit other forums and I have found several people like you and me that have been punished without crime by Google.
I am also waiting to see if my pages are returned to Google's Index.
I think the best policy is to have faith in ourselves, in our ( mental and talent ) assets, in out Honesty and Decency.
If we are Honest People, hard working and cultured, then someday we will find Search Engines that link us, or not very expensive methods to get traffic.
If we are not spammers, flooding the net with idiotic ecommerce, or with Commercial Garbage, Scum and Scam, Dirt and Filth, then it will certainly be that someday we will get some friends that link to us.
Faith and Hope here are more valuable than Gold.
I don't wish evil or misfortune to anybody. But if Google continues in the same trail of killing honest people's websites while at the same time promoting trash, garbage, repetition and filth. Then one day Yahoo, MSN and others will be before Google in Traffic Statistics and Earnings.
Keep the Faith and Don't get Depressed. Google is not God. Even if the first two letters are the same.
On July 19th I almost completely stopped getting referralls from google.com and started getting 10x as many from images.google.com. My photo gallery pages no longer have descriptions listed in the main index, although their URLs are listed if you do a site:mysite.com
Google may be seeing your pages as duplicates. Adding a line of text to the template (that appears on all pages) could have made google think they are duplicated.
With the pages that are left in the index, check to see if they have more unique content on them than the pages that have been dropped.
I may try putting up a test gallery with a different page format and not located under /images just to see if Google picks it up on the next deep crawl.
