Google Suffer Down Time

3 comments

At around 13:40 hours Indian Standard Time, the google web search went down and subsequently Gmail also went down. Google search came back up within 5 minutes or so. But GMAIL is still down as I write this post. [13:55].

Since we are into link building and SEO , we use GMAIL extensively for our link campaigns, and this down time is costing us. I think I will go for a dedicated mail server this time. :-(

But considering the 2 GB and increasing mail space, it is hard to let go of google.

Yes also noted the problem for TW

There are mumblings around, at WW and elsewhere, of Adsense being down for extended periods of time. There's a separate thread talking about Google itself being inaccessible. Problems also with blogger and elsewhere. Matt is retracting earlier comments about Jagger 3 being visible by now and saying there'll be a delay.

I'm only guessing here but

I'm only guessing here but if hardware is an issue I do have a spare server lying around.

I could probably set them up

I could probably set them up some space on my server as well if this helps. I can spare about 5gbs of space. Hope this is enough! I can guarantee some good uptime as well with full (software) Raid :)

You use GMail for SEO work?

Call me paranoid, but laying out your link network and SEO plans on GMail doesn't sound like a secure plan.
