    I have a music blog with links to house music mp3s hosted on sites like speedyshare, zippyshare, mediafire etc and have just noticed while using a laptop with google safe search on that my website disappeared from google
    also noticed in statpress that most of the search terms are now only the name of my blog
    why doesn't google like me anymore?
    is there a way to find out what the reason for this was?

    I imagine their bot's indexed some content that was marked as questionable or risque. I'd go through and look at the anchor text of your links for any curse words or words that might be considered too risque for children's eyes. You might also want to see if any of the hosts you use also publicly host adult content.

    oldenstylehats to the rescue once again :)
    I think you're right, just checked my Google Webmaster Tools and it tells me that Google last successfully accessed my website on June 7th That's when I included the acronym STFU (name of a producer) in one of my posts. I have edited it with a *, resubmitted my sitemap and shall see what happens now.

    Should have and most likely did. A good way to check is to run a search query and find one of your pages that is updated frequently. Click the Cached link beneath the description and see when the page was most recently cached. This should give you a far more accurate idea of the last time Google visited your site.
