Another Major Finance Related Blog Is Removed By Google

Friday, November 12, 2010 - 10:47 AM
It has been almost a year since Google mysteriously removed my old blogspot Bank Deals blog. After some work and some help from readers, Google finally restored the blog. I'm glad I don't have to worry about that anymore now that I blog here at DepositAccounts.com.

The reason I brought this up is that another major finance-related blog seems to have been removed by Google. It's Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis. It has been down since early this morning, and it remains down as of 10:45am CST (11/12/2010). It's a major economics blog that gets tons of traffic.

I haven't heard from Mish, but the problem appears very similar to what happened to me last year. I emailed Mish some tips that helped me resolve the issue last year. I hope Google can do the same quick restore on Mish's blog as they did with my blog last year.

The blog has been restored. Mish provided the following comment at his blog about what happened:
I do not know what happened  
I picked a bad day to sleep in.  
I suspect someone tried to hack my blog or email account and Google shut it down until I verified my account.  
 
It happened once before
