Google Banishes The Boomtown Rap From The Blogosphere!

This is bewildering and upsetting. The Boomtown Rap has been de-indexed from Google! I’ve disappeared overnight!

Type “Boomtown Rap” into Google, and for many months, the home page has come up as the top listing. This ceased to be as from yesterday. The home page does not come up at all – and I’ve checked multiple pages deep.

Unhappily yours
