    .htaccess maybe?
    So....

    I have a site that has 11,000 pages indexed in google, and was doing very well. Then, one day, the traffic simply went away. So I started doing some keyword analysis, and found that my rankings hadn't really changed.... yet.

    But what I discovered was that G had indexed all the URLs on the site, but had somehow replaced every = with a ,

    Yahoo and MSN, where I still get traffic from, have the URLs correct with a = instead of the ,

    Any suggestions as to how I can simply forward the incorrect URLs in Google without breaking the correct URLs indexed by the other 2?

    It's killing me at the moment... And, since each of the URLs in the google index is currently going to a 404, it will kill the site rankings quickly.

    Thoughts?

    Do you use Google sitemaps? Might fix things quickly.

    Contact an seo expert and ask for a solution and further information - in return, offer that they can use your problem as a newsletter / website story... think you need a pro here...

    You might ask Google directly here (good luck):

    Sitemaps was exactly my thought (outside of .htaccess). Thanks Donuts...
