And this has happened to all 3 of my sites.
I have tried all other search techniques, and still nothing!
Yahoo, ASK, MSN, Altavista and all the others are fine.
What has happened?
What is amazing that the top sites donīt have any pr,
are spamming using text repeating keywords and google seems to give more weight on keywords together in title than before like brown widgets better than brown whatever widgets and donīt have any top of repeating keywords in text, as well donīt see diferent widget than widgets.
Seems more onpage than before, that lets more spammy sites in.
Two of the sites are linked quite well together as they are about a similar subject, consumer credit (one is credit cards, and the other is loans/finance), but the third site is totally different, it's about timeshare.
They are ethically optimised with nothing underhand (gateways, link farms ...etc)
They are all hosted by the same ISP, as with all my sites.
I thought that G maybe going through a dance at the moment, I just couldn't find anything from anyone else.
Thanks for the welcome. I have posted many timeshare before, but forgot my login and email address that I used to register so I had to re-register.
<Don't do that. You're asking for trouble.>
Can you be a bit more specific as to why that is not so smart? I have all of my sites with the same host and shared IP, of course separeate domain names. However they do not link together. Is this a problem? and Why
Can you be a bit more specific as to why that is not so smart?Because you don't control your hosts actions. They may decide to ban Googlebot or, more likely, make their clients' site inaccessible to GBot inadvertently. This has happened to several hosts recently. Your hosts servers could go down when gbot visits. There are other issues especially when linking the sites together. In short, it is better to diversify.
<added>here is an example.
Checked a few spots that I had had #1 or 2 for a few years and now those are way down in the 20s and 30s
Is G doing something odd or? - never been hit b4, and havent done anything to the site lately other then add a small amount of content.
endomorph1, have you read this thread?
I'm guessing from your last post, however, that it doesn't apply.
I don't think it's a ban of any kind, just another google glitch. I have employed no unsavoury tactics whatsoever.
It was fortunate to see the same PR come back to all the old de-indexed pages as well.
Cross your fingers - if you haven't been cheating you may have simply hit a glytch like we did...

If the sites were "not available" when G bot visited, would google remove all 3,000 + pages from their index?
That exact thing happened to me, although it was a couple of years ago. It took about six weeks to recover.
When the site was indexed again, pages ranked roughly the same as before. It was a frustrating interlude but there was no lasting damage.
In August I just launched a website with over 50k of content pages. In a week I get a dmoz link. Google has spidering about 32k pages and many of them has top ranking in google.
On 25/09 G drop me all ~30k pages indexed from my site. Now it's gone although googlebot spider daily as usual a few thousands of pages.
Is there any chances to get back the pages in index?
Great news for my site, but you have to say that the results aren't what they should be.
Sorry, no information is available for the URL domain.com
Find web pages that contain the term "domain.com"
Running this search shows
Results 1 - 10 of about 34,100 for "domain.com"
However, I get to page 4 and there are no more results, funnily enough, my site has around 33,000 pages, so, I guess they are being counted, but where have they gone?
Its been suggested in another thread that G has 'lost' my site. Where? down behind a radiator? fallen into the stuffing of their settees? gone to join all the ballpoint pens? (should I say widgets?)
