Hello all, I am so hoping someone can help me out here.
I noticed about a week ago that google has penalised my site and has removed all natural listings for my site: 3D Desktops UK
Firstly, I was approached from ZTMC regarding placing links in my footer page. I checked them out and all seemed genuine. However after 2 days, after implementing the code, I was dropped from google.
After reading and reading online searching for any similar experiences it did seem that there have been others that have had similar problems. There was, to be fair, numeral others with positive views so take that for what it is... my advice, don't even bother chancing it!!
I removed all the code and submitted my site for reconsideration in google webmasters. Yay, back on in three days and only dropped 1 place, my prayers answered... i thought....
Then 2 days later, dissappeared again... ah what!!!
So I dig more.. I changed my theme at the same time I put the ads on....
So here's what I think is the issue, I relaunched the site with a modified version of the softnews theme from Website Guru Designs.
It now seems that after checking my site through the following validators:
I got the following unexpected response when trying to retrieve <http://www.www.3ddesktops.co.uk/>:
Any ideas what could cause this?
The other is a load of css issues:
W3C CSS Validator results for www.3ddesktops.co.uk/ (CSS level 2.1)
Sorry! We found the following errors (12)

I have checked the Website Guru Designs through these validators too with the same results... So I guess it's the theme. Please help.....
