Hey Dayo

Im clueless to why your blog was deleted, maybe Matt is just fed up with this problem :s which isn't the best course of action to take.

And I have no idea whatsoever what to do about those problems, hopefully the aftermath and a huge crawl may sort it out.

Theres more to life than Google ppl :D

Anyway back to subject, I guess theres still no news on when Jagger will go home :s lol

It is hard to have an update thread without discussing this situation.

99%* of sites that have been hit in this update, Bourbon, Algera and even the un-named update in December and November last year seem to suffer from this problem.

* Ok - cant back up that figure

>>>> maybe Matt is just fed up with this problem

Arent we all.

who knows, maybe it's a side effect of Googles overactive spam filters and Google are having a hard time fixing this and make everything do what it does, maybe thats why its still an ongoing issue.

If only Google could set some guidelines about how to help prevent it, maybe the big G doesn't know what causes it?

So many possibilities, but hey, I can only speculate :(

"maybe it's a side effect of Googles overactive spam filters"- talk about overactive , here are our site listings:

16,700 results for site: domain.com
629 results for site:domain.com
647 results for allinurl:domain.com
14,200 results for link:domain.com

We are so buried in the serps that we may as well be dead. Before 9/22, we were on top. Jagger has us down about 85%. Time may be on Mick's side, but we've got mouths to feed!

Open to any and all form of clues.

If someone has a solution for hire, please send a sticky.

No flux since this morning at 11 on my side of things on 66.102.9.104

Booo!

There are a few in there that shouldn't be either.

Like a blog, that has all the search terms listed on the site but zero content about them.

Hmmmmm....

has anyone else noticed google.co.uk keep switching between two sets of results - one is acceptable and one is awful (as referred to in a previous post)

As I sit here contemplating my navel on this dark, dreary afternoon, it strikes me that if we're having trouble listing on 'G', what the heck is the innocent web publisher doing, who hasn't got a clue about the legal cheating that we call SEO. I mean they don't stand a chance and the Internet gets more and more commercial and less and less relevant. It's all going a bit like TV, more about filling time and less and less content.

It's been a long time since I've read good members such a Dayo_uk getting this mad, If 'G' don't listen they'll be about as popular as AltaVista ;-)

My english site, basically the same but in english has less 301 (as not as old as the German site) only took a 33% hit. The main difference is that I didn't change the directory structure and it has therefore nearly no 301's.

I see my main competitor has changed his favicon to one similars to us.. Copying is the sincerest form of flattery ..

Maybe it's a favicon issue.. ... (obviously not ment seriously)

Google UPDATE your supplemental results Database, I still see caches of sites that had 302 link to us, in that cache is a copy of our hompage, those are dated 2004, jesus, with time this is realy getting a little silly, it took you 1-2 days to remove another site from the index that had a 302 link to your adsense and replaced that original in the serps, but a real fix for the 100.000 of sites that are also hurt, it takes years.

What logic was it that you removed the ability to see other domains from a personal site:ourdomain.com search , when its not a fix of the situation, was it to hide something or cant you fix this, why should we help with spam reports and coments, when you dont give anything back, I will advise you to listen to some of the comments here, you have a REALY big competition next year.

I think Google are a hip and trendy company

G *were* a hip and trendy company, when they were a small start up with an honest mission. Now they're Google Inc working for shareholders that are demanding returns on their investment, especially over the xmas shopping season. With all due respect Dayo, you may as well bang your head against a brick wall, your problem is seriously way down their priority list! SERP tweaks these days are designed to increase Adwords revenue not please WW members :-(

If we're talking relevance ... There will probably be a take over bid by mindcap ;-)))

I would not believe a company would be that short sighted - more and more sites are going missing - Google need to fix it for there own good. (IMO)

And it is not my problem - it is Googles ;)

I have just noticed another thing strange on google.co.uk. if you ping it, it shows 216.239.59.104. when i put that DC in my address bar and search using a main keyword, I am #4, if i search normally, using google.co.uk, I am not even in the first 10 pages!?!?
