    Uh wow I just lost a site that I invested so much time and that was earning me so much money. This is the worst feeling in the world.

    The only thing I can think of is that I added AdSense to it (STUPID). It's a "how to pass a drug test" site.

    Holy shit this just blows...does anyone have anything they can offer me in terms of advice/tips/consolation?

    Would it be safe to clone the site and start anew?

    And couldn't I just turn the old site into a 301 redirect?

    Probably wasn't the adding Adsense - Probably just now getting hit for something else because you asked pappa Goog to review your site/traffic sources.

    Turning a burned site into a 301 to a fresh site... is just asking for your new site to get burned too.

    Disavow the spam links you have - and just wait a few months before 301ing.

    Almost positive it wasn't the Adsense.

    Could be due to to many ads above the fold and thin content - There was a goog index update about that back in... October-ish

    When you put Google related product to your site, they have track all data about you. There are lots of automated content sites which are still in alexa top 1000 and none of them are using adsense. Also, Google really hates ebook/pdf search engines, but ebookbrowse.com doesn't affected, because they don't use adsense. And there are lots of examples. I know this because I've also experienced this in the past.
    So, I think that happened because of adsense. Is your website auto generated content based ?

    I really doubt it has anything to do with adsense. That being said, wouldn't your content be against the Adsense terms of service?

    Yeah I thought harder about it and realized that Google doesn't just deindex sites for not meeting the AdSense TOS.

    As for the content, yeah it was mostly badass presell copy that I wrote and that worked really well.

    About link profile...well the thing is, the first tier is only my expertly crafted blog net and some handmade, unique content-filled Web2s/PDFs/YT vids/Squidoos. But I mean no matter how expertly I am at looking white hat, any manual review would definitely give me away. (Which on a separate note scares the SHIT out of me for SEO with a machine learnings search engine like Yandex)

    Theory 1: I built the site on an expired domain that was what I THOUGHT the old domain of an out of business drug testing agency (it was only $12 and a PR2 w/ 22 Trust Flow in Majestic!) Anyway, what I found is that they are NOT out of business. They just changed their website. So possibly a complaint from them to Google? Maybe Google has their own system for copyright infringement? Either way I'm sure that drug testing company is happy as hell to see it gone haha.

    Theory 2: I had Google Authorship set up with the site, but then registered it on an AdSense account that used a Yahoo email. So either they were like "why's he using a Yahoo email for AdSense?" OR OR OR they just looked into the "author" of the site and realized somebody named "Berry Friendly" with no friends/followers/contacts was probably fake as shit.

    If anybody wants the money(less) site URL to check out content, ad placement and link profile, PM ME!

    I feel like you are leaving out some crucial details. It is pretty difficult to get de-indexed. Not impossible, but pretty hard.

    I've only had one site get de-indexed and it was because I sent thousands of spammed out blog comments with the same anchor text over and over.

    If your site is removed completely from Google, that's 99.9% manual action.

    Yep.

    The one site that I had de-indexed still has phantom URLs of RSS feeds indexed.

    Did you see the part about the fact that I was using an expired domain from a company that is still operating? Or the G+ Fake Authorship?

    Also I find it hard to believe you got deindexed for inbound links as a competitor could easily destroy all competition with a $57 purchase of Scrapebox.

    Maybe it got flagged for review, and after someone reviewed it and they felt it should be indexed because its "evil" or some other bullshit.

    Fake authorship tags are no problem either, I use them all the time and have never had an issue.

    If you are honest and didn't do mass spamming then it is something to do with the history of the domain or previous owner.

    Start a new site and transfer over content. Keep an eye on old site though, maybe it'll bounce out.

    I experienced this myself. Not my money site but a high PR domain that I bought not long ago to add into my private network. It has something to do with the local authority or some sorts of things. It was a PR4 back when I purchased it. But right at the time Google updated PR recently, it got deindexed and the PR was gone.

    Funny thing is, all of my other domains were just changing in PR except that one and I couldn't figure out why. But later, when I re-read the domain name and checked it with waybackmachine, I knew that there must be someone at that organization revisited the site, saw the content changed into something different, then reported that to Google.

    This is something new.

    I think Google automatically reviews the site once the adsense account gets flagged(In your case you were stupid to add it on a Drug related site which is illegal according to Google adsense terms *facepalm*)

    Now once the site got flagged it went to for manual review probably and you got deindexed.

    From Google's Adsense FAQ

    [h=3]Drug, alcohol, and tobacco-related content[/h]What's the policy?
    The AdSense program policies prohibit Google ads on sites which sell or promote drugs or drug paraphernalia. This includes drug accessories, illegal or prescription drugs, and herbal drugs such as salvia and magic mushrooms. Ads are also not permitted on pages which sell or promote the sales of beer, hard alcohol, or liqueurs. Additionally, publishers are not permitted to place ads on sites which sell or promote tobacco and tobacco-related products, including cigarettes, cigars, tobacco pipes, and rolling paper.
    Please be aware that the promotion of prohibited content includes providing links to sites that do not follow our drug, alcohol, and tobacco-related content policies.
    However, publishers are permitted to place ads on informational content relating to brewing or distilling beer, as well as content related to the topic of quitting smoking.

    Yeah guys I know I'm the marketing embodiment of /FacePalm right now.

    But yeah I figured it was AdSense that triggered a manual review. All other money sites and others remain intact.

    So does anybody know if link juice flows through a deindexed 301 redirect?

    I have found that adding adsense to a site HELPS indexing... (My thoughts were google likes money, so if you have their ad network they improve your ranks)

    But my site actually jumped up after I put up adsense.
