I can be google'd, therefore I exist.
12 days ago, google delisted my blog from their index. No warning, no comment, no explanation. But the effects were immediate and dramatic. And no suggestions on how to get back in their good graces.
I got some help on LinkedIn - the most important of which was a suggestion to submit a request for reconsideration through Google web tools. It worked; 4 days after submitting the request, my site is once again receiving search traffic.
Of the web sites to which I have access to statistics, about 95% of visits from search engines originate from Google. Scrum-breakfast.com was no exception. Just how important is Google to today's web site?
The questions for this week's poll (admitedly off-topic, but I can't resist):
- How much of your traffic in last 30 days originated from search engines?
- How much of that search engine traffic originated from google?
