+ - Google's "guidelines" challenged

Submitted by Wienaren
Wienaren (714122) writes "Google's "guidelines for web designers" are pretty much pointless when it comes to modern web applications. The removal of phixr.com from google's index is a perfect example: The web application does hardly have any useful index-able text, hence the designers used invisible — yet legitimate — text in order to propagate the site's purpose to search engines. Today, after 8 months of being indexed, Google decided to pull the plug — effectly making the site invisible to the world. No warnings, no hints to what might be the problem. The frightening fact of the matter is that the removal does not appear to have happended after automatically scanning the page, but after human intervention, as the site was indexed properly since April last year. I wonder how many web apps live out there in solitude..."
