These complaints resulted from webpages missing from the Google SERP without any reason.

On Saturday, Google’s John Mueller incorrectly reported that the problem was fixed:


John Mueller and the Search Liaison account on Twitter replied shortly on Sunday regarding this matter:


Also, as stated in the same tweet, It’s confirmed that there’s nothing the site owners can do to get the issue resolved. With that said, if there are high-value pages that you absolutely need to index again, you can always explore the Inspect URL tool.

Let’s hope for more updates from Google.
