    So yeah, I've got a 4 month old deindexed site that is completely whitehat, and has no blackhat link building or spamming or cloaks or anything. As for unique content, it only had 2 unique pages, and about 20 PLR articles.

    I just found out some asshole copied one of my unique pages, so I guess that brings it down to 1 unique page... a pretty thin home page.

    The whole site is deindexed... but why? Has anyone experienced something like this, and will I be able to get it back in the index?

    I've spent a lot of time on this thing with article submissions and other link building stuff... very time consuming and annoying. For the past week or so, I've been making some small minisites like Squidoo and free blogs and bookmarking those, would that have something to do with it?

    What if I write 5 unique articles and put them on the site, would that help? I only ask because if it's hopeless, I don't want to waste any more damn time on it.

    Thanks...

    I've never had this problem before either. I've got about 300-500 backlinks, from probably at least 100 unique domains. So I don't know what the deal is.

    best advice, dont change anything on your site, could be google dance or sandbox, if is really a white hat site, just wait a week or so before make changes...

    You could also file a reinclusion request (now called a "reconsideration" request).

    Im with zong, try waiting to see what happens in the next few days. I have been on and off the first page for months now, literally up and down 20 ranks or so daily. Just move on to the next project or get some more backlinks and you will be on your way.
