As the page grew and more blogs and sites linked to the page it moved up Google's search pages for the search term "Benghazi Attack Timeline" until it was the second listing on the first page. I had a few days of steady traffic (and pride) and then the page just completely disappeared from the search results. Completely gone without a trace. I didn't use any SEO tricks and the page has no ads, so I don't think it could be counted as spam. I don't think it's any kind of conspiracy. Has this happened to anyone else and how did you fix it?"

    note the lack of explaining what has been changed. Usually if you're removed from search, they will provide a reason.

  • Recently (days ago) Google changed quite a few things regarding search and co. And there are a few bugs (search discussions). Could be related. Also did you search the web or the news? News (I suppose) don't have the same algorithm and are likely to be more time dependent.
    • WeCheck is not a news organization so it doesn't appear in Google News. The main page is completely missing on a web search, but the page's talk page is still on the tenth page of results.

      Where is the best place to read about these recent Google search bugs?
