    PJN threads and Google!!!
    All threads in this [PJN]forum have been swiped off google! The only hint of them is the IP link (207.97.211.163/forumdisplay.php?f=480)

    Try unhiding the results not shown because of "duplicate content".
    I get lots of abestweb.com results for http://www.google.com/search?q=pepperjam+network+forum+abestweb&num=100&filter=0

    Besides the duplicate content issue, I think this is more a bug in Google than some kind of sneaky behavior. I've seen Google omit results on some queries, when it can be verified using slightly different queries that the pages are indeed indexed (and should actually be shown for the queries where they were omitted). If I run across them again, I can post them here.

    I don't know if they'd be in Google much anyway because everyone was typing PJ and PJN when they were asking questions instead of typing Pepper Jam.

    I was hoping people would type Pepper Jam so that when people googled Pepper Jam maybe a thread or two would pop up. But oh well.

    http://www.google.com/search?q=%22Th...1800PetMeds%22

    See, there's an example of a page showing in one set of results but not showing in another set where it should appear. (edit: based on the language issue below, maybe the "bug" for other searches was just because of my language preference setting for google.com. But maybe not. I haven't dug into it.)

    For that specific page, it seems like Google is confused about the language. If I choose English results only, Google says: "There were no results in your selected language(s). Showing worldwide web results for "They have Nordstrom, 1800PetMeds"."

    Same thing for these threads:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...ed+networks%22
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...ison+engine%22

    I wouldn't be surprised if many threads are affected by the language confusion.
