Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Well, although I had hoped to sneak this by Google my worst fears are realized.
99% of my pages now show just the title and the index page cache is showing the ‘Parked Page’
So… do I just ride this out or do I try to contact Google.
The domain had just come out of the Sandbox 2-3 months ago and my traffic was growing by leaps every day. I would hate to have a 3-6 month set back.
if youve got the original pages back up on the same domain the freshbot should pick up your regular pages again since it sounds like youre being botted pretty frequently
It's coming daily but only looking at the index and leaving. I know it'll come back eventually but I do hope to avoid being sandboxed again.
I did explain in the Google reinclusion form and just got a form email back.... don't know if it did any good.
What is so frustrating is I can't blame anyone but myself.
If you are just so lazy that you can't even renew your domain you deserve to get kicked out of google.
That's a bit unwarranted, surely?
I don't think that calling someone lazy is adding to the discussion, and I'm sure that many webmasters are like me - I'm so busy and working all the hours I can manage, that it's more likely I'd overlook something because I had too much on my plate, rather than too little...
Anyway, that's my tirade over, on behalf of those over-worked and underpaid souls, who'd give their right mouse-button to be able to be lazy, if only for 24 hours <grin>
Maybe this is a reason Google pattented the idea of ranking pages by looking at domain expiry date - neither Google nor their users like if a page dissappears, so if a domain has long time to expire, it means that everybody's safe. So such a page may be considered a bit more valuable from this particular point of view.
