Heres a brief description of the problem.

Our website has been very successful up until update florida, one of the best in our country in fact. Then it vanished entirely never ever ever to be found again it seems.

The bad news doesn't stop here. Our website has been found! The most unexplainable problem we and any other marketing companies have ever seen.

Our domain is listed in google as:
The %20 causes the domain to point to a page cannot be displayed. We have wrote SEVERAL letters to google and recieved no help removing our domain to have their problem fixed and our website re-indexed. They seem to ignore our requests everytime. What seems even more odd is that noone can submit such a url, this had to have happened inside google manually. We would like to hear from other professionals why this happened and how.

Seems that if this is even possible to happen outside google, which we doubt, then there is a new way to
cause trouble for other website owners.

Who do we call when google will not respond to our complaints?

As to why MSN may like you with your error prone coding is, they do not strive to the quality guidelines that Google does in helping those with accessibility problems find information.

In what way does Google do more for people with accessibility problems than does MSN? I'm not challenging the assertion - I would genuinely like to know!
