    That is insanely harsh!

    I'm just starting out, but I'm fairly sure one of the domains I'm sitting on has been blacklisted before I start on the big G.

    Like me you're probably still on Bing and Yahoo though, I know its no consolation, and the percentage of the two combined is a minscule fraction of what Google pulls in, but consider this:

    These people are using Bing! Which means they're using Hotmail most likely. Which means they definatly have cookies enabled :D (something to be said for a market that hasn't even swapped browsers...)

    Thats pretty insane about google. They dont need any time to pull anybody down. There has been a huge algorithm change recently .

    Check there official blog post
    Code:

    Dont know where they will stop :(

    Interesting about the G change. My sites that have been stuck on page 2 are now on the first page.

    As far as losing all those sites....wow! That's crazy. I had a feeling they would do this so I've been focusing on one quality site at a time to avoid getting smashed like that. Either way, sorry to hear that :(

    Were they autoblog? Did you have unique content on them?

    Were they interlinked?

    Have you wondered why it's happened?

    If you read the above blog, you will see it is only in the US index at the moment. Which looks about right. My sites have only been taken out of US index, so far. So there is probably more pain to come. Funny this is only happening to my WH sites though.

    If you'r business model was centered around shit farms then the jig is up.

    Sooner or later google will ban you!

    Autoblogs, article directories are all done. Anything that is low-value to google will be banned. Going forward, you have to make everything you need unique, interesting and high quality.

    Sorry to hear you losing all your sites. I lost my best earner, and about five other ones - thankfully there are other sites in my portfolio to take their place.

    It's happening more and more...Google is taking over.

    What you should learned from this: SEO is a GAME. Never rely entirely on Google for your traffic.

    Sorry to hear about that. Its better to diversify your traffic sources than relying solely on search engine traffic.

    God how many times have we heard this story here. I am sorry to hear you lost everything. I think the lesson here is...no more than 5-10 sites per IP , adsense, and google analytics.
