Sometimes I cannot believe the threads I read in the official Google Webmaster Help forums.
Last week we had a duh SEO moment but this week, it goes way beyond that.
A company named scrappingexpert.com, is actually complaining that their web site was removed from Google. The owner asked, "The website scrappingexpert.com has gone missing from google.com, please tell us what could be the reason?"
Um, really? The site offers, an I quote, "Manually Copying and Pasting Web Data? Save time and money with scrappingexpert.com extraction solutions! Scrappingexpert.com Service are able to deliver data exactly according to your requirements with accuracy." Heck, they even have a sub product named "Google Data Extractor!"
And why would you want this software? As the site describes:
Search Engine and SEO : Get the Most out of your chosen Search Engine & SEO Websites like Google, Alexa, Yahoo etc.
So now you are asking why the site is no longer showing up in Google? Really? Seriously?
If you are looking for some fun, check out the Google Webmaster Help thread with all the webmaster responses?
