Removing the garbage from all of the pages of the site has had a consequence.  Because the site was basically spam for a month, Stage Select lost about 66% of the traffic we were getting PRIOR to being hacked.  Basically the "good name" of the site was used to advertise crap, and now Google must think that's what we do.  The problem will probably last a couple of months.

Hey, sounds familiar.  At least once a year there has to be some fucking catastrophe that kills most of the traffic to the site.

But thankfully months later we're back on the road to recovery! And once the site redesign is fully realized, I think we'll be back in business. Google will be eating out of our hands =P
