Google oddities

Something strange going on in the Google Universe as far as search engine indexing for science fiction is concerned?

Bit of an oddity we've noticed over here in SFcrowsnest towers.

Checking our site logs, its looks like Google has cut the domain and related URLs from its index. We're still in there alright, but when trying to find pages of content, we're always the very last search result.

Even online pirates who are stealing our content come up higher than we do now, which is most odd and very unlike Google, which has always been very accurate in being able to point internetizens towards our articles when relevant keywords are typed in.

Anybody else spotted anything strange going on?
