Google quirks

Threaded View
I am a webmaster who has since 2nd Dec fallen from grace with Google.
My site used to be on the first page of Googles search results for a
wide variety of search terms. On 2nd Dec a religious hate hacker
re-placed my home page with a propoganda page by hacking into my
hosting company's servers. It seems that Google spidered that page and
blacklisted the whole of my site. I have resubmitted my site for
re-spidering but it has not regained its listing position.

Is there anybody out there that understands how google handles these
quirks and how I might be able to recover from this situation. Many of
my sites results now only display the url -
"  Similar pages" and no
meta title, meta description or other details like "cache" or "similar
sites". When results appear like this what does that imply?

I'd love a response from any Google Guru's who may be out there.

Does this mean that you resubmitted your site using the free inclusion
service or that you specifically sent Google a "reinclusion request"
email explaining what's happened, which is what you need to do?

Thanks BB

I didn't realise that was possible. I'll give it a go.

Here are all the instructions: /

Be aware that I have checked your site and it is in the Google index. Based
on what I have seen, they might just tell you that your site is indexed and
that you need to regain your positions, pointing to their "Guide for
Webmasters" pages. Intervening with the algorithms and changing the indices
is hard. /

Hope it helps,
