Submission + - When your site doesn't exist

El Lobo writes: Most businesses on the net get 70% of their traffic from Google, but what happens when Google — the source of more than 70 percent of your traffic — decides it will no longer index your web site? That's what happened to JavaLobby last month. From the article:

"We had completely disappeared from Google's main index!...if you run a website, then you know how serious a problem this is. On any given day over 10,000 visitors arrive at Javalobby as a result of Google searches, and suddenly they stopped coming! Suddenly we no longer existed in the eyes of the World"

Microsoft is often accused of being a monopoly, but nothing compares to the dangerous power of Googles monopoly.
