There has been complaints during the past week of missing homepages from the Google index. It seems someone found the loophole and posted it at WebmasterWorld. Here is the story.

(1) Do a search on No results found! See picture, if for proof.

(2) Ok, how did someone remove's homepage? They went to this URL:, which looks to me in some Asian script (so I can understand it), here is a picture. New english version picture.

(3) Enter the URL in there, not sure where and click submit and presto:

(4) Google then responds to you via automated email with the following short but sweet message:

********************** The following urls/messages have been removed: **********************

(5) and both have PR0!
