Hello All,

I am Alice. I have a business website. Someone has filed a DMCA against my website 6 months earlier. Yes there was some duplicate content on my website. I have removed the content and registered my website with DMCA protection badge. Then i have sent a request to Google to remove my website from DMCA and list it in the Google Search.

Almost 1 month has completed. My website homepage is still banned in Google Search.

Can anyone has any idea about how can i get back my website in Google Search and remove it from DMCA Complaint List.

Thanks
Alice

    That's a blacklist from Google, try Google "recover google penalty"
    I stumble upon a DMCA hosting service on BHW which avoid the DMCA stuff.

      1. Recovering from a Google penalty is TOTALLY different than getting a DMCA's page re-indexed.

      2. The BHW service you're referring to, along with any other hosting company, can't help with this. They can ignore DMCA notices sent to them, but they have no control over what Google does to a website when they receive the notice.

        Interesting, DMCA and Google Penalty are different terms.
        Maybe OP should migrate to another domain.

    A "DMCA protection badge" is useless when you are the one doing the copying. Adding a "badge" to your site means nothing, except you paid money to a creative marketing site for something you can do for free. It does not mean Google is going to index your site.

    You could put up a spam page copying other content and put a badge on it.

      Google is not a police agency.

      A DMCA complaint is just that. A complaint.

      Since nothing can be done without some sort of court order....

      Google takes sites down just for those reasons: Court ordered.

      If the people speak, google will listen. Too many complaints, you
      bet google will take it down.

      Move and host your site in various countries, like china, russia,
      india, pakistan, turkey, iran, (boy the list is endless, actually.)
      Then you never have to worry about a DMCA any more.

      Google may deindex your site for various reasons. Just simply
      filing a DMCA does nothing of the sort. There is due process.

      Google is filled with tons of stolen, copied content sites.

      Sure, this is not really on subject of this thread, but I laugh at
      people who toss "DMCA" around as if it actually solves anything.

      Do a search for pirate bay. And remember that the whole thing had
      to go through courts. And it's back up in many forms, all indexed
      by google.

      Duplicate content has zip to do with DMCA, google, or anything else.

      If you stole content, published it, without the proper ways, why complain now?

        Not the OP, but 2 common reasons come to mind:

        1. What's the point of eating a cake if you can't still have it?

        2. Thinking is hard; greed is abundant.

    How do you know there was a DMCA notice filed specifically to Google?

    I have never heard of anyone being contacted by Google telling them that a DMCA notice was received and as a result their site was removed from the index. I'm not saying it is impossible. I just have never heard of anyone encountering that.
