Works fine for me..

(We have lots of monitoring systems, so if something ever slows down, people get pages :) )

:) I can access it fine from here. Still issues? Did ya use something to get ya banned from google or maybe its just a route from your isp to the internet thats down. call up your isp and ask them if the internet is down.

Hey GoogleGuy, thanks for the last indexing and all the freshbot visits. It's very much appreciated.

Your homepage is working here at the moment.

Its back up for me. It was definitely a Google glitch of some sort as all other web services seemed to work fine. I hope GoogleBot didn't miss them while they were down. The Gray bar would be hard to explain to Larry and Serge.

There was a time yesterday when I was unable to connect to Google either, after several tries, although I was connecting to other sites okay. My wife could connect from her computer at the same time, though.

Powdork, the friendly members of WebmasterWorld will never be replaced. :) kfander, do you know if you have any spyware or other strange programs running on your machine? Can you reach Google fine now?

It's been fine today, but yesterday I also found google.com and all the international Googles to be inaccessible for about 2 hours from western Canada. This was about the same time that the others were reporting the outage.

The message I was getting was that www.google.* could not be found.

Try doing a traceroute. It could be a hop along the way that's down.

dazz, it was just a coincidence. Just happened to be strolling by, and those thread titles always catch me eye. :)

Certainly we've heard tales through the years of different ways that people have problems reaching Google, but it's usually isolated reports--things like companies that accidently exclude their users from Google by doing things like hardwiring their IP addresses for Google and then setting a very long time-to-live (TTL). I think everyone should be able to reach Google--is anybody having problems currently? Things seem fine to me from home. :)

I heard from a friend in China that the Google image search is not accessible. I know it's not Google's problem but it's a pitty for them because Google image search is such a handy tool.

>> Can you reach Google fine now? <<

Sure. There was an hour or so when I couldn't, though. As for spyware, only Alexa that I know of. Ad-Aware does a pretty good job of wiping out the ones I don't want.

For the past couple of days, I get redirected to google.ca about 50% of the time. I've no clue what that's about.

My husband sits about 2 feet from me and hasn't had that happen to him once.

Laisha, if hit happens again, look for a link at the bottom on the right. You can set google.com as your homepage using a cookie setting so that you'll never get google.ca by mistake. Although I am curious about your IP address now.. :)

Laisha,
I get redirected to .ca sometimes, so I made [google.com...]
my home page.
That way I am always on Google.com ;)

LOL! Change my homepage from Webmaster World to Google? That's not something I am willing to do.

My Google bar goes to google.ca as well.

Although I am curious about your IP address now.

I'd be happy to give it to you if you want.

I used to have the same problem frequently ... but only when Google uses the local [google.com...] extension. So now, I have set [google.com...] in my bookmarks and never have the problem anymore! :)

Sorry, I didn't mean set Google.com as your homepage (although that's always a good idea ;) ). I meant that you can set something in your cookie that will always take you to google.com instead of google.ca. Look for a link at the bottom of the page, on the right.

If you have a bad mismatch between your IP address and where Google thinks you are, you can use [services.google.com...] to let us know. I'd only use this form for clear things like "I'm in the U.S. and you think I'm in Germany," not stuff like "My home company is in Germany, but I proxy through France, but live in the U.K., with a Danish ISP, and you show me google.de instead of google.co.uk" or something really complicated like that. :)

Thanks GoogleGuy, that URL hasn't been mentioned for quite a while.

Now if you could just do the same for hosting providers... :-)
