Many concerned people are posting in threads on several boards.

Complete sites disappearing from the indexes, some are very old, established sites with deep backlinks from huge sites.

Some sites are losing every listing except the main page, some caches dating back over a year.

What's happening at google? Is it a machine crisis or is it a re-structure. There seems to be few answers from Google on the current "crisis" if you call it that. What do you suppose they are doing about it?

Are the investors becoming concerned? Take a look at the 10 day chart:


I am worried. I'm worried about my sites, my revenue. Like many of you, I've lost a good portion of my Google traffic, listings and rankings. Some are staying put, some have just disappeared.

Stock is hardly falling, fluctuating at best. Buyers drive the price up, Sellers sell off & take profits. The market cap on Google is HUGE. This is old news as far as the stock market goes and investors hardly care about sites dropping in & out of the databases; they care about profits and revenue which G does a pretty good job with. With the Dow rapidly approaching its all time high expect G to go back up soon or maybe down. Again, consider the market cap currently @ 117 BILLION. Ten day chart means nothing, consider the 1 year chart:


My 3 cents ;)
