On Friday our site was suspended. The email just says the site doesn't comply with site policies. Google customer service said they're getting a 302 error when they hit the site. I've cleared cache and tried multiple machines and I'm seeing the site just fine. Any ideas/help? Much appreciated. Site is

Apparently, there is more than one violation on this site;


Looking briefly, I found two: (and probably there are more...)

  • Violation of solicitation of funds section. (You are promoting help for fundraising.)
  • Violation of the casino and gambling section. (You are offering a $1,000 sweepstakes.)


This site has to be  thoroughly checked (and fixed!) for Policy  compliance, before applying for un-suspension.

the uri is returning a 302 found when googlebot crawls the site --
this contradicts both the 200 header and a proper response.

a given uri must respond with the appropriate header and
return the same information regardless of the user (agent).
