Not On Google!

I was telling a friend about the site the other day. I told him to go to google and look 4 hits down. But he told me it was not there.

It is true for me too...The search for "U2" which used to have this site at the near top yeilds no mention of the site!

What happened?

Very strange I searched there under u2, looked at the first 20 pages, and nothing came up with the interference address in it...

We are the 3rd hit if you search for U2 on yahoo though

it used to be #3 on Google like Yahoo but it disappeared the other day. It was a frightening moment for me.

Apparently I had put some code in the main page that was not within 'Google's Webmaster Guidelines'. I wish they'd give you a chance to fix it before they 'punish' you for not following their 'rules'. Needless to say, Interference may be absent from Google for a few weeks.

One interesting note, by looking at our server/log stats... it doesnt indicate that our traffic has been hurt at all.... REALLY strange.

I used to be the third hit for "ali hewson" and just tried and my site isn't showing up on Google either. Elvis, what code are they not allowing and where did you find out how to fix it?

Just read their 'webmaster guidelines' and if you dont break any of their rules, you're fine.

Hm....don't think so. Those rules are really ambiguous anyway. My site was listed third a few days ago, now it doesn't show up, and I haven't made any changes. Oh well.

Ever since the server went down...last friday was it? I hadn't been able to google interference (or pleba).
Except the cafepress site came up.
Then nothing.

At least now I finally know why.
Strange they would take you down just for something silly like a code.

Google is getting very strict, as they are trying to combat web-spam.... unfortunately, some code I was trying out apparently matched what they consider possible spam oops.
