    I was playing around with some 301 redirects with .htaccess on one of my money sites

    and just to check to see if it worked

    i searched on google for a keyterm that i rank well for

    when i clicked the link from google i got a message from firefox saying that "this
    page is redirecting in a way that can not continue" or some
    crap like that.

    I check it a couple more times to to make sure it works and it doesnt.

    SO i then take the 301 out of the file and search google again

    AND MY SITE IS NO LONGER LISTED

    I cleared my cache and everything

    Can someone please tell me what the F is going on

    Just put it back to how it was, google should come back and see it was just temporary! and stop testing on a live site!

    unfortunately google is quicker to take away than to put back! G will give you a chnace or 2 I guess they assume you have played with system setup by accident. If you do it too often then G gets annoyed and permanently sends you to the bottom of the index. When did you do all this?

    Lesson learned:

    Don´t ever play with 45% of your traffic source.
