Another Google Victim Comes Forward

I received a comment yesterday from Kristie, who runs a dog blog called Ask Chewie. Her web site is now being blocked by Google with the same “malware” advisory that plagued Mister Poll last week. The story is the same. She discovered the block due to an unexplained and severe drop in her traffic, with no notice or communications from Google or StopBadware.org. Will this unreasonable conduct never end? If you’d like to help Kristie, send your complaints to appeals@stopbadware.org and help@google.com.

    Ok, I’m in the same boat, but this is even worse.

    We were the first reputable anti-spyware review site on the internet. Every month we grab a bunch of products which purport to protect your computer and run them on a bunch of expensive servers to see if they really do what they claim. Most of the time, they don’t, and there are a few that do. But who can tell what’s real and what’s not unless they have the resources, time, and expertise to test them out? Well, we have all that, and I’ve been doing this since March of 2004. There are quite a few copycat sites out there (even PC World copied us) but nobody is matching what we provide for free.

    I just found out Google blacklisted us. It looks like they’ve been doing it since early December. At that time, we were getting about 5,000 visitors a day from Google. We now average less than 20.

    Yesterday, I was considering shutting the website down. After all, if I spend most of my waking hours doing all this and nobody comes, why bother?

    Anyway, I would definitely appreciate a shout-out. Can you spread the word?

    to me spoanking is essential at times. as a child it soon became a positive method of knowing the misdoing was not worth the red hot bottom i got. no repeats happened. in my marriage it soon became evident that both of us deserved punishment when causing severe upset to the mate by imoroper conduct. rather than putting up with long hours of argument plus periods of sience. the matter could be settled promptly with agreement on both sides that a good old fashioned spanking would do the trick. it worked.

    I am a user of a website called http://www.wcradio.com and it is basically the first and only World of Warcraft radio station. I have been listening to the site for the past 2 months and two days ago google and badaware slamed the site with a, This site may harm your computer,
    ban. Now I cannot search the sire via google and I have to navigate through another site. My point is that the site has been operationg fine and has no so called badaware on it.
    I have contacted the tech e-mail address on their homepage but have not recived a reply and am worried they might have to close up as they are only a small web-based station
