Another update regarding the Google issue at pixel2life seeing as today marks 3 weeks since this started. If you’re just joining in the fun, Google has dropped the main P2L page from their listing for unknown reasons. There is speculation this is a glitch, but no one from Google is able to confirm it. You can read THIS POST to catch up on what I initially reported, then THIS POST as a followup with more details of what I had found so far.
At this point, I can’t get anything but a generic copy/paste style email from Google… here is what I keep receiving:
Thank you for your reply. We strongly encourage you to review our Webmaster Guidelines at www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=35769. If you make changes to your site to comply with these guidelines, please let us know.

The sad part of all this is that if someone from Google would take literally 5 minutes to look at my site’s status in their index and tell me if it’s been tagged for penalization or if this is simply a technical error, this would be solved, or I’d at least know what the problem is. As it stands, I have been contacting anyone I can and yet I am still groping in the dark on this.
I recently was referred to Matt Cutts as a possible avenue to getting some assistance, but this guy is probably so busy, it’s extremely unlikely (although I WISH) that I will hear from him. I left a comment on his latest blog post about what’s happening (there is ZERO contact info on his site) and I think I left him a voice-mail at work, so we’ll see what happens. I’m sure he can tell me what the heck is going on, or at least point me in the right direction, so I’m prayin! I’m also still sending emails to Google helpdesk in hopes someone gives me some hint of what’s happening.
The pisser is now we have idiots capitalizing on this issue. Open up google.com and search pixel2life… check out the second result. How’s that for bottom dwelling scum sucking idiocy? THESE people get listed on Google no problem, and here I am fighting to save this site and get back into the index.
As for Hammertime, NG is back from vacation and Chaos is back on Sunday, so we’re still going to push onwards and we’re hoping to launch soon… hopefully Google doesn’t decide to reject this product too.
I also just checked my stats and I have less traffic from Google so far this month than I would normally get in an afternoon. Ouchies.
That’s about it from here guys… now to go approve today’s tutorials!
