Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
not showing up in SERPS for any keyword
(i was #1 for some)
in webmasterTools report is just says "no pages are indexed" , nothing about a ban or beeing penalised
traffic seems to be 30% of normal today
(i had a huge boost in traffic 10 days ago, about 8 times more as normal,after that it got normal again, couldnt explain that)
As already known "Google splits its data between many machines to find matching documents faster", which could mean that if your data is stored on only one machine, putting the machine down for some reason will put you out of the results too, until the data is restored.
A few years ago they had a few copies of the entire web, but by implementing the supplemental index idea, could mean that they can't solve the growth of the net with simply acquiring new equipment and even they could be forced to abandon more copies of the complete web space, going back to offline backup.
In any case I would first try to do a search using "&filter=0" parameter, in order to get more results and wait a day or two before panicking. :)
That must be a typo.
The third octect is always an odd number, so 170 is incorrect.
The last octect is never 134. The valid values for the last octet, that I know of, are: 17, 18, 19, 44, 80, 81, 83, 84, 91, 93, 95, (98), 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, (105), (106), 107, 115, 133, 147, 184, 189, (210) and 214, though even some of those are no longer in use.
The site is nowhere to be found in the serps for many many search terms where it was ranking top 10, neither are a few of its sub domains which show under site:command but are not listed
Any thoughts - does this sound like a penulty?

If it is a penulty - what action should we take and what is the time scale involved.
Any thoughts appreciated - Now worried
Have gone to webmaster tools got the account verified etc
Googlebot last successfully accessed your home page on Nov 18, 2006
Pages from your site are included in Google's index. see index stats
When i click on see index stats it provides the following:-
site: Indexed pages in your site site:domain
link: Pages that link to your site link:domain
cache: The current cache of your site cache:domain
info: Information we have about your site info:domain
related: Pages that are similar to your site related:domain
When i select site:domain it brings me up a page of results all old pages supplemental and the home/index page is not listed first or to be found.
Those that have experience of sites that have been removed or have a penulty - is this what you see?
The webmaster tools dont show me anything else of interest or am i missing something?
The site url and pages are in the index but doesnt come up first in the search site:command nor do ANY of the sites pages rank ANYWHERE for any key term - Not in the first 500 - likewise the site had six established niche sub-domains and they have all gone also.
I dont get it, its a very nice established site with loads of unique content on it, it does have some affiliate links on it, the content is all in line with Google guidelines - some far worse sites are ranking top ten.
I have removed the last 50 pages added to the site "in case" something about those pages it doesnt like but i cant see that would have effected it - but im obviously worried about this one and desperate to know what to do!
Any thoughts would be appreciated

Im confident that a the site in question has a penulty as it no longer ranks anywhere i just dont know whats caused the penulty or what to do about it.
Anyone with experience of this like to offer advise?
I see weird stuff everywhere I look these days, some results look clean, some look total crap.
Seems like Poogle thinks blogspot spam is just excellent stuff though, hope it takes over all 10 of the first page results soon, instead of just four or five spots for fairly significant keywords.
