Google Update – The faceless email syndrome

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 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 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!

  1. Oh yes… errors in their index are common, especially when they make major algorithm updates, which is what happened here. Then ppl have to sit tight or try to get action while the errors correct themselves.


  2. Actually, there’s a whole bunch of sites this seems to have happened to, all ont eh same day too. There are several threads about it on Sitepojnt. Either way, hope it clears up!


  3. I’m just writing to let you understand of the magnificent experience my daughter went through browsing your site. She discovered plenty of pieces, which included what it’s like to have an incredible teaching mood to let many people with ease understand certain complicated subject areas. You undoubtedly did more than people’s desires. Many thanks for imparting such invaluable, dependable, revealing and also cool tips about your topic to Kate.

  4. I simply desired to say thanks again. I’m not certain the things I might have carried out in the absence of the concepts revealed by you regarding that subject matter. This has been a very difficult issue for me, however , encountering the very skilled fashion you dealt with the issue forced me to weep with contentment. I am happier for this information and hope that you realize what a powerful job you happen to be accomplishing training most people all through your blog. Most likely you have never met all of us.
