Dropped from Google

Posted on: Monday, Mar 17, 2008

bluesinthenorthwest.com will no longer appear in Google searches as we have been dropped by Google as a result of the hack attacks from two weeks ago.

This is a shame as quite a high percentage of our new subscribers come from Google.

Google recognised that we were most likely hacked but have dropped us for at least 30 days.  All the links to bluesinthenorthwest.com will slowly disappear from the Google over the next few days.

I am double disappointed as I have the hacking cracked and the site now seems secure also I had managed to get bluesinthenorthwest.com to the top of the Google listings for most combinations of our keywords.

Ah well!  Business as usual eh?

Lisbon Feb 2008?

What a terrible shame, Ken. You must be livid with the idiot who has caused this nonsense. What a stupid waste of his/her talent – to undermine an excellent, much-loved public service that does no harm and causes no offence to anyone.

Yup! That’s it. Not a mention of bluesinthenorthwest.com in the google listings anywhere.
