October 26, 2009 in National Greens
In a follow up to the mystery of the missing Green Party website on Google searches, an email to Green Party Watch from Google states that the Green Party (US) website gp.org had been removed from the Google index because it had been hacked. Hundreds of hidden links to websites selling prescription drugs is buried on the gp.org website. Google’s standard practice is to remove compromised websites from its search index.
In the mean time, the webmaster for gp.org has been informed of this, and Google has already taken steps of restoring it in the index in anticipation of the website being cleaned up.
