Okay, so I've got a page of my site ranking on google. My page kicked a** at ranking and took 1st place for two keywords searched about 150 a day each. My page is now deindexed dudes! I don't know if its a google dance or not, site is now 4 months old at least. Even if I write site:mydomain.com it doesn't show that page. Also, searching for that page even in quotes doesn't give me the result except backlinks. All other pages seem fine, I didn't changed anything that much at all. How come google hates that exact page which was ranking, but not the one like privacy policy or so? Damn dudes! I've encountered this problem today, I hope my site will pop up again soon. I just wanna ask if you've had similar experiences with us all feeding mother Google (amen).

      Did you invest heavily in backlinking?

      Sometimes they blacklist you for that right.

      I've been working on a FAQ here at WF for just this sort of thing. Look through it and see if any of these pertain to your site: http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...deindexed.html

      It's hard to say for sure without seeing your site.

    It could have many reasons. I am seo/smm expert. I know how it can come back. It is obviously can be cause of some illegal activities, if you are optimizing your website from any of black hat seo performer. You have to stop getting direct backlinks to the website. 2. you can update website with some fresh content. 3. Generating backlinks from .edu and .org websites.

    Thanks

    BINGO!

    This happend to one of my sites index page a couple of days ago.

    My page was ranking #1 on page #2 in Google SERPs for my main keyword.

    I created 2 new pages to support my index keyword, with the keyword in both new page titles. I added a hyperlink to the index page header pointing to the 2 new pages.

    As soon as I published the 2 new pages, my index page dropped to page #4 in the SERPs. I let it sit for about 24 hours, nothing changed in the SERPs.

    I said wtf, & removed those 2 internal links from my index page header.

    BINGO!

    The page is now ranking #7 on page #1 in Google SERPs... for some reason those 2 hyperlinks was messing with my SERP position.

    All good now.

    I've added iframe to my site which loads a page from associatedcontent.com where you generate money per views. I was boosting articles with my site. However, every single page of my site had an iframe code. I don't know if it was because of this, but page that was ranking was deindexed.

    Okay, I've reversed the iframe. I guess I'll have to wait for it now I think I'll put it again as soon as everything is normal.

      Build a couple of new pages that include the main keyword in the Page Title, then include one-way links (with keyword anchor-text) back to the old page that dropped in the SERPs.

        That is definitely something that could have done it... although, it concerns me you were totally deindexed.

      I very much doubt that your page will ever be indexed again without a request for consideration, which you have to do through WebMaster Tools. There's a new form they have requesting a lot of info (your backlinking strategy, SEO company used, what you did wrong, what you corrected, etc..) before they'll even consider putting you back in the index.

      Google's really riding the advantage of monopoly. They've gone from cleaning up the web to downright "evil"... deindexing hundreds/thousands? of new sites every day right now.. without any common courtesy as to why.

    based on my experience this is due to heavy backlink building to quick too powerful within a short period of time. All the times this has happened to my sites years back was all related to heavy linkbuilding to that page. There that one page alone gets sandboxed for that keyword while all your other pages with no inbound links i.e About Page etc.. are still indexed.

    Thanks,

    Many people forget that Google is in fact Google AKA a very smart Search Engine...lol. And Google will destroy you if you try to pull something slick, like too much linking or putting merchant links on your site when it is only 4 months old.

    Be wise when you are trying to manipulate google. It is tough to do. When you are trying to rank a page and it is only 4 months old or less than a year just put up articles. NO LINKS! You will get indexed and rank much quicker. Build link wheels slowly.
    And once you become indexed than you can start putting up sell pages and place your merchant links.

    Just read some SEO crap. It is more self explanatory than you may think.

      Glad to see you back in the SERPs and really appreciate you updating the thread so the rest of us can learn what type of things can cause a deindex.

    This is why I stopped relying on Google to get traffic to sites. Once you build up a big list for your autoresponder, you probably will never need to look back on relying on Google.

      I tried building list too, however, nearly no people seem to convert. Out of ~200 people one opted in and didn't even active his account. I didn't know what was wrong, even red arrow was pointing to the box saying enter email for free stuff. I would love to build a list myself.

    Hmm, if Google penalizes you for too much heavy backlinking, too soon, wouldn't you be able to use this against your competitors?

      Good to see you back in action.

      To think, iframe and Associated Content could cause you to get deindexed.

      I'll have to add this to my DO NOT DO list. (Or is this just an isolated incident?)

    Passing through Same issue as @kazlas just started a blog before 20 days ago and as it been started indexing it got fully deindexed on 7th Feb 2013 because I have used iframes in some of pages . But at first I not know what the issue was and without researching I sent reconsideration request .

    But after sending that reconsideration they replied me in Google webmaster that your blog not following up Webmaster Guideline and I have tried to figure out issue but I can't so again sent reconsideration at noon and after an hour I come to know iframe may create this issue so that's why now I removed those iframes but still not get response from Google Webmaster. What do you guys thinking up I have done mistake because of which blog will not been indexed by Google.
