This afternoon my family business site dropped from all keyword searches in Google. We have been present in Google for 5 years and have been well positioned on front page for all our keywords.
I maintain the site and update and check the links religiously, no major changes have taken place and pages are kept clean.
This morning, on my dialiy checks, we were present in all postions. This afternoon.... dropped... like a stone. We are nowhere!
Two days ago we seem to be targetted by the "Gumblar" virus which our hosting company "Fasthosts" are looking into. All spam txt has been removed from site and a fresh index page uploaded. I changed our FTP password to a more secure one.
I have checked site.domain.com in Google and the index.html page is not present but all 245 other pages are!
I am really panicing as this is our bread and butter and not normal for us to drop out like this completely.
I would appreciate all comments and help.
many thanks - Pudders (Panicing)
