    Just now, I found I uploaded a private page to the main index two days ago :mad: !! Google has cached the new page, I hope the ranking can come back soon.

    Shit happens, I once saved a page in the wrong client folder and uploaded it. it was up for about 15 seconds before I clicked on the page, realised my fXXX up, and corrected it by iploading the right page. during that 15 or so seconds, googlebot hit the site and cached the wrong page :)

    Shit happens lol

    some years I ago I completely messed up my ftp upload... I didn't really sleep the night before so after wasting hours by looking at htaccess, DNS settings, possible redirections etc. etc. I finally figured out I just uploaded to the wrong server.

    Well, I was in the middle of uploading my updated index page, when the Internet went kaput. My site was index-less for like 12 hours. Thank God, googlebot didn't decide to visit it at that particular time. :)

    The silliest thing is that I kept wondering why the ranking dropped and the sales suddently stopped, but didn't check the homepage, how silly!!

    I was so afraid I would upload a page for a club to a church site I was doing. Luckily I avoided that but have made other mistakes. I try to always view page I just uploaded to be sure I have uploaded the page I intended.
