Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
i am not sure. But i think my site got hijacked, too.
But this could be a new kind of hijacking!
- my site disappered from the index
- my pagerank went to ZERO
Firt i thought i did something wrong, but then i took some research on the issue:
Is my site hijacked? If so, i will promise all members of webmaster world, that this will be a really good story for the newspapers!
I am working for one of the biggest, german computer-magazines. I am serious journalist, and i know how to get a story, that everybody understands.
I wrote google about this issue. I want to see, if they can fix this problem and how fast they react (and if the react).
Thank you for your help!
What if someone 302 redirects to you but doesn't have your url in their url. If you see what I mean?
These things are everywhere, am I missing something?
If these things are a problem and google were to take action and amend their alogirthm the effects on their results could be seismic! They may not be able to change their algorithm because the results they end up with after acting on this may not be what they want? Just an idea.
As for contacting Google, I've never got more than the standard automated reply letter from them. I think a good approach for your story would be the conversion of the free Internet itself... perhaps the greatest tool we have ever had to do something good for the world... demoted to just another form of media by the growing mass of webmasters... if you can still call them that... hungry to split nickles a click at a time with G$ at any cost.

I did a site:mydomain.com
found a result like
click it and it loads my page.
I did a http view and this is what it reads
Next loaded site is mine.
Should I be worried? or is this normal and ok for link exchanges?
Btw. I publicly denunciated some of the cheaters on wm-boards (actually those where no hijackers, but copied my pages) and I eventually found out that they had hired a SEO.
Google has to do a lot of work.
