Through a stroke of bad luck, the Atlantic Council server was down during a critical Google update. Consequently, the Atlantic Council site, acus.org, was de-indexed by Google, findable only through a site-specific search, even though it still ranks highly at Bing, Yahoo, and other search engines. I’ve been told that linking the Atlantic Council website from OTB, which is still indexed, may help expedite re-indexing.

  1. I’m no SEO expert but wouldn’t waiting for the next crawl of the Google spider solve this problem at least somewhat?
