Duh! Removing My Site From Google Wasn't a Good Idea!

Duh! SEO momentAre you ready for a laugh at someone else's expense?

A Webmaster complained that his "Site not showing in google search result at all and it should!" So what happened?

As Googler Pierre Far explained in a Google Webmaster Help thread, the webmaster used the remove site feature to successful submit a site removal request and it worked. The site went poof, and was no longer found in Google.

Why would this webmaster then complain that his site is no longer in Google? Ready for this? And I quote:

Yes I removed entire site, because the google content was outdated. But I thought new content would come back by submitting site to google. Obviously I was wrong.

I feel bad, but once in a while we need a good laugh at someone else's expense.

In any event, the site has some good content and they deserve a link. Check out the Best For Chef web site and here is hoping to a full and quick Google recovery!
