Site De-Indexed entirely

Never had a site de-indexed before, ever , just got our first out of perhaps 200 sites.

We did try some aggressive techniques with it, it was a bit of a guinea pig , we clearly found the boundaries..

Is there any solid guides for attempting a re-index, stuff to fix in advance etc.

Any "getting re-indexed" pros about?

    Usually u should wait it out, probably 90 - 180 days.

    It wont hurt to remove all your spammy backlinks, removing spammy features and adding unique content.

    Well if its 1 from 200 say thnx and wait it out :]

      Sorry I guess I should have specified, we run an underground SEO operation, something like 200 + sites, we've done all the usual, removed the links we presumed caused it to tank.

      We didn't have any dupe content anyway, never use it, not even spun content, the content wasn't the issue.

      All the "usual" stuff we did immediately.

      Really just after any strategies somebody might have who has been there -done that and picked up anything a little out of the mainstream stuff.

    What did you do to it? It would be interesting to see what exactly the boundaries are when it comes to being deindexed.

    Hi Simon - had a site wiped out too - bit of a frightener isnt it - was your traffic cut completely? my site was brining in around 900 visitors per day but It looks as though it's still present on some google servers as i'm getting a tiny trickle of traffic through serps (upto 30 today)...

  • Nah, this one is totally de-listed, can't even see it on a site:

    Was doing about $12k a month on that sucker.

    Onwards and upwards..

    ^^ "sell" the site - move hosting, change registrars, you know the drill. Then ask for re-inclusion if they don't pick it up after a while. Tell them you just bought it.

    ...or 301 to a new domain.

      Thanks, I wonder if pleading dumb/I got sold a duffer would be enough.

      Might be worth a bash .

      Cheers.

    This happened to two of my sites recently and i think it has to be a combination of bad on-page, stupid backlinks and too many affiliate links above the fold.

    Big $$ means big exposure typically.

    Those are the niches Google engineers keep their eyes on, as well as all of your competition. If you paid for links, or did some really shady stuff you likely got reported by enough people to trigger a manual review.

    Your only real option is to try and clean up all of the backlinks you can, clean up your onsite, make your site 100% friendly with Google and file a reconsideration request.

    That's really your only option. Or, I'm sure you'll hear that you can 301 it to another domain, but I'd do that AFTER trying to clean up the domain for reconsideration.

      We don't pay for links no, we have our own team building them, fortunately we keep logs of every single link, every aged domain we buy, every article placed, we have our own network as well, all links are dated in the spreadsheet we keep on each site, it's a pretty organized gig, so thankfully it's easy to remove the last lot, which we are doing now.

      Onsite is not an issue.

      We have considered 301, but I think exploring the re-inclusion option either post "sale" or otherwise makes more sense up front.

    well your website has gone to Google Sandbox now. you will have to make efforts to bring it back by removing unnatural, low quality back links. Need to optimize your website correctly and reduce the repeating keywords in the content of their website if they sense like over optimization. its better to mention your website here for better analysis. although it will take a couple of months to get out from Google sandbox

      All previously responded to , will probably delete this now as have the "sell it" option to work towards.
