My Google Scholar Profile was searchable until yesterday. Now, It does not appear when I search my name (Amir Sagiv). When I (usual) Google it, the link is broken and I get a 404 code.

To be sure - the profile is there; when I log into Scholar I can view and edit my profile.

Seen anything like it?

Here is the broken link: https://scholar.google.co.il/citations?user=zGndG2IAAAAJ&hl=en

I was able to search for your name and return a Google Scholar profile with a different ID in the URL: IL: https://scholar.google.co.il/citations?&user=fHFTU7EAAAAJ US: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=fHFTU7EAAAAJ

Is that you? Is this also you? https://orcid.org/0000-0002-0831-216X

If those links look accurate for you, it looks like your profile is up. I'm not sure what would have caused the URL to change though. A different ID suggests a different account. I would expect that ID in the URL to remain stable for a specific account.

If that is not you, you may need to distinguish yourself online from another researcher with the same name. ORCiD is really great for helping researchers with this.
