Hello all, my wife and I run 3 websites each, they are all different, 2 are 5 years old, one of them, my wife's 5 year old site, today it has vanished completely from google, even doing a search for the domain name, the search comes back "Sorry, no information is available for the URL blah,blah,blah.com".

We are really hurting, mentally anf financially.

There are more than 500 other sites that contain the title, the keywords, the description, and the content of that particular URL, most of them directories or scraper sites, some of them with links to the site in question, some others only with the writing of all the content and NO link, and all of them have gooooooooogleads at the top.(We don't)

Since the lats update all our 6 sites are 95% down in searches, and it is very upsetting to see other sites with all our content in the position that we were before the update, and obviously getting the results from searches like we were.

So does anyone knows what's going on? how many more sites have vanished, how many more directories are on the top 10 searches (all with goooooogleads of course) for any keyword that you type.

We all need help, someone please HELP!

Googles fixed!

My lost sites just re appeared by magic after 2 to 3 weeks of no google referals.

Went from a few hundred referals, from image searches, to a few thousand overnight.

And for my site names went from 10 to 40 pages deep to number 1 and two,

Dont give up hope its still going on.

Nitrous I am happy for you, obviously things are still moving, and that gives me hope, I just wished I had my PR back, and I could find my site in Google, but as you said, all is not lost if there is still some movement, Great news.

Hello everybody,

We are also facing the same trouble what Wille50 is, our homepage disappeared, only our site URL is showing that too on 7 page, thanks to this thread who ever involved and helped, I have gone through the replies and Googleguy’s recommendations thoroughly and implemented such as removed 302 redirect, made absolute linking for all the pages, done 301 redirect for my non-www to www.mysite.com...

Let’s hope for the best.

Bye

Hi all everything is the same at this point in time with the URL in question, We have decided to redo the site completly, and change all the internal links, and create all new extensions like if it was a new site, maybe google might find it that way?

Any thoughts on that?

As the site cant be found at all in Google I would be tempted to put it on a new domain. (Just my opinion)

If possible wait for the results of the reinclusion request and also try to wait for the Bourbon update to finish.

I would wait things out a little longer before you do something so drastic.

You may just aggravate the problem if you switch everything around while the spiders are trying to figure out your site.

Changing your extensions and links and everything around will in fact be like starting from scratch. You'll lose ALL hope of regaining any PR if this is just a temporary blip.

Upload your sitemap to google if you haven't already.

Hi all, Shan (my wife) is getting impatient, and it is really difficult to know what to do, I have posted at the thread "Questions for GoogleGuy"
[webmasterworld.com...] asking the same questions:

"Shall I forget about the site.
Shall I redo the site with different everything.
Or shall I leave it as is, and see what happens"

My other 5 year old site still has a PR 4 and the PR has not changed since the beguining of the google bar, only my traffic has gone dowwwwwwwwwwwwwwn, apart from that no change.
