Oh oh–it’s happened again!
Dear site owner or webmaster of geofffox.com/mt/archives,
While we were indexing your webpages, we detected that some of your pages were using techniques that are outside our quality guidelines, which can be found here: http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=35769&hl=en. This appears to be because your site has been modified by a third party. Typically, the offending party gains access to an insecure directory that has open permissions. Many times, they will upload files or modify existing ones, which then show up as spam in our index.
Thanks to my friend Bob, it’s now all gone. But is it gone soon enough?
In order to preserve the quality of our search engine, pages from geofffox.com/mt/archives are scheduled to be removed temporarily from our search results for at least 30 days.
We would prefer to keep your pages in Google’s index. If you wish to be reconsidered, please correct or remove all pages (may not be limited to the examples provided) that are outside our quality guidelines. One potential remedy is to contact your web host technical support for assistance. For more information about security for webmasters, see http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2008/04/my-sites-been-hacked-now-what.html. When such changes have been made, please visit https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/reconsideration?hl=en to learn more and submit your site for reconsideration.
Sincerely, Google Search Quality Team
I’ve already asked for forgiveness. Maybe I can be forgiven before I’m banished? Maybe not?
We shall see.
Meanwhile, this stinks.
One thought on “In Google’s Doghouse–Again”
I suggest you create a new xml sitemap and re-submit it thru google webmaster tools. Don’t contact them directly or they’ll do something stupid again.
