302 Google Issue – Is Something Happening?

Caught a thread over at Threadwatch: Google’s 302 Problem Solved? so I snuck a peek at the sites I’ve been monitoring.

I do see a big change, the site:domain.com query does show clean results. No hijacked urls and no scripted links included in the results. You may want to check your sites that were affected by this or were monitoring.

It’s too early to tell if the changes are cosmetic only, or if Google has snuffed out the hijacking problem. We’ll see if any of those affected websites bounce back or not.

If you’re wondering what that 302 thing was all about, I posted a few times about this:

Google’s 302 Problem Exposed

Removing Google Hijackers

Slashdot Threadwatch GoogleGuy

Those blog entries have a good number of informative links and resources about the 302 issue.


I've been trying to find my way online for more years than I care to admit.
