Update: 10:36 PM (4 minutes after I posted this article) – This post is already in Google’s index – so what happened to all my GM posts, and where did they go?
Something interesting happened to mgamble.ca over the past 24 hours in Google search results – all references to my posts about my 2010 Equinox have been removed, but every other page on my site is still in the google index. So far only the “My 2010 Equinox Story“, “GM Is Reading my Blog“, and my “GM Responds” posts have been removed. Now I’m not a conspiracy nut, but it’s a bit odd that only those 3 pages were removed from any Google search results, but the rest of the site remains. Normally if Google drops search results, they drop the whole site, not specific links.
So I’m trying a little experiment. I’ve updated my sitemap with a link to a static copy of “My 2010 Equinox Story” to see if it gets re-indexed by googlebot. If it does, that implies that the other pages were somehow removed from Google.
I’ll post another update in the morning once Google reindexes my site and I have a chance to review the results. All I can really say right now is that something really suspicious is going on.
