1. A month ago some illegal prescription drug spammers managed to temporarily display their links on a Litkicks page, resulting in the entire site being temporarily banned from Google. I’ve been attempting to communicate with Google about this for a month now, but all they will do is “accept my reconsideration requests”. I have not received a response from them yet.
I know Google is under no obligation to index LitKicks.com, but the search engine has been happily sharing my content since the day it went online, and I wish the company treated its longtime sites with more respect. I don’t mean to be all uppity about how great my website is, but the fact is Literary Kicks goes way back. Readers care about this content, and this content belongs on Google.
If anybody out there has any suggestions for how I can get this problem solved more quickly, please email me or post a comment. Thanks.
3. I also don’t give a damn about Borders’ new Magic Shelf. Just put a good book on a shelf and I’ll call that magic.
