My site was hacked and suddenly started ranking for adult,pharma and pay day loan keywords in Google. Now when I have deleted the malicious php file,I am still ranking in google for these keywords. Howevery,when clicked,it returns a 404 error page.WIll google take time to de-index this ?
I have fallen from rankings in Google on low competition keywords. My questions is : Is it possible to recover from this or has google blacklisted my site ? My domain authority is 44 and page authority is 44 with PR 1 and mozrank around 4. If I decide to start with a new site,all the hardwork for this site will go in vain. What would be your suggestions ?
I have filed a reconsideration request in Google and the cool guys at sucuri have fixed the malware.
