Not sure if you know or not, but when you do a search on, for example..".ending your affair forums or support" nothing comes up for IVillage.  Just wanted to let you know because I'm afraid we will never get any new members.

Is iVillage blocking the spiders that seek out our boards because of the sad state of affairs?  I searched for the Quick and Easy Recipe board using Google and got no iVillage hits either, until I used " Quick and Easy recipes message board iVillage" as  the search terms. Then I got this about halfway down the results page:

Searched for Trying to Conceive using the same method, and it has the same message, although it was the top search result.

Starting to feel like a crazy conspiracy theorist......

Maybe that only happens when searching for a specific board? I just googled "women's message boards" and "relationship message boards" and ivillage turned up on page 1 of the search results. I wonder if the server changes are affecting the google crawlers ability to properly track the site.
