    Html validation

    Currently i don't know what's the reason but i am facing completely de-indexed situation from Google for
    http://www.google.com/search?q=site:nichewatch.com

    As i don't know the exact reason so i think it might be due to HTML problems.

    Currently i am not using any doctype statement on top.
    Could you suggest me which doctype to mention because lot of foreign lang keywords are also searched from this website and it causes sometime malformed urls.

    Thank you.

    A missing or incomplete doctype wouldn't get you banned from Google - approximately 99.99% of the web is made of crap code.

    Your best bet would be to email Google and ask why your site has been removed (assuming it was there in the first place?)

    If you read through the SEO forum you'll find a lot of people suffering similar problems with Google.

    Exactly. Google is currently experiencing some issues and many sites are experiencing the same thing. We do not know why this is happening or when it will correct itself. All you can do it sit and wait it out.

    Wait Wait

    People are suffering partialy de-indexing.

    And i have suffered COMPLETE DE-INDEX.

    I am concerned more because it may be a "BAN" case. :?

    Hello

    No I donít think so, some of my websites are 10 years old, if you did a search with Google with general searchís terms they always showed up high, if you did it with more accurate terms they mostly showed up on top or very high, now some of them, like yours donít even show-up with a search for a specific website unique word, they Vanished from the Google WWW

    If Google has a cache or one page indexed you are not banned. And many sites have had every page de-indexed with the exception of one page (usually the homepage).
