I think most of us love Google or the idea that we can pretty much query anything at anytime. Two days ago Ray over at Money Blue Book told me this blog, Matrix, was no longer indexed on Google.
I reached out to friends like Chris Miles and Dustin Luther to figured out what to do – it’s never happened before and since I didn’t change anything on the site recently, I didn’t know where to start. We ended up poking around and found advertisements for viagra embedded in my sidebar (WordPress). I’d been hacked!
I went to this page My site’s no longer included in the search results. What happened?
…not much help!
I went to my Google Webmaster Tools page and sent a reconsideration letter (allow 4-6 weeks for changes).
Its the “Guilty Until Proven Innocent” law of the Internet – after all, it is only a series of tubes.
