My site was on Google, then it disappeared, then it came back! What's up with crazy Google?

Though we know it can be aggravating, it's actually quite normal for Google to drop sites for intermittent small periods of time as they change and update their indexes. True, this never seems to happens to CNN or Facebook, but us small fries have less sway with the Google gods. Give it a bit of time and hopefully you'll come right back up. We understand that this can be a big frustration, but smaller websites are not always indexed accurately or completely. This is true all across the Internet, not just with your website. Though Google is seen as the de facto index of the Internet, they are not always 100% thorough or up to date, especially with smaller sites.
