Well I canít believe it! Our website has been suddenly banned by Google. Any advice is welcome.
Anyway, Iím blown away and quite humbled and would like to fix this as soon as possible. We try to hold ourselves to high standards and I am very wary of shady schemes in SEO. I have even avoided link exchanges and directories on our site because it always seemed a little grey hat. The point is, we try to stay very clean and were never trying to scam search engines, only trying to index Flash content. In retrospect I can sure see how it looked spammy and have pulled down all content from the top page in hopes that we can gain reinstatement.
Iíve learned so much from this community and have really appreciated all Iíve learned here. Any tips on how to get us out of this mess are welcome.
(Oh, one hilarious/paranoid note Ė I made a post on the Matt Cutts blog asking about how they deal with reports of website spam, by manual bans or through the algorithm. And as if Matt responded by flicking the switch, our site shuts off. Nice. I don't really think he did it but who knows. You get mighty paranoid in a situation like this.)
