Excellent information. I'll have to see if that's what my problem has been.

unfortunately for me, I was trying to show a client how well we had done at SEO'ing their site when google had that problem. Whoops. The client was a little upset to say the least that when you searched for them, it said the site was going harm your computer! A little time and a few phone calls later, I think they finally believe that it wansn't our fault!

Yeah, a friend told me the following weekend that Google had been hacked. Of course, that kind of news made me head on the internet to figure out what had happened. I guess a manual entry error had caused search results to appear that way. That's a very rare snafu for Google. Oh well, their stock isn't having that same issue. ;^)

My first guess would have been the browser. I finally switched from IE to Firefox. I like that IE is fast, but for some reason it started acting flaky.

The new Firefox is definitely and improvement, but every once in awhile it seems that it acts flaky too.

I clear my temporary files and cache periodically to keep those kinds of things from happening.

May I ask what browser you were using?

Nice to know that even Google makes mistakes sometimes. ;)

Some crude calculation- Google could have lost almost 6 million searches and something like $2.3 million in revenues in those 55 minutes when the search died?

Did I snatch these numbers from thin air?
