    I have a site in a niche with a lot of searches, I planned on having adsense on it and other cpa offers and what not..

    However, after a couple weeks of backlinking, I was around 1-2 rank on Google, until one day I lost all ranking.

    And my all, I mean ALL, no serps, nothing, not even the domain name itself. I know for a fact it was Google that removed it as they saw the site getting more attention etc, and wanted it closed downed.

    Now, should i request my site to be reconsidered, or would that just be pointless and a stupid move to make?

    I show up in Bing and Yahoo, but they barely get me traffic... Any input on what to do with the domain/site now?

    i would imagine you are not allowed to have the name google in your domain.

    Google is pretty serious about domains in their SERPs that use their domain name. There have been many Internet Marketing products that have had to change their product names because they included Google in it.

    Is your Adsense account worth losing? Is it worth potentially getting sued? I'd probably say move on unfortunately.

    I had a domain with google in it. They banned adsense on the site but it was still ranking. So if it comes back just don't stick adsense on it.

    Interesting. Had no idea we couldnt do that. Makes sense. Time to drop all my domains with major corporation names within.

    don't think it's against the tos..... But they will probably will be able to take some legal steps, and also probably won't allow ads on it...

    What you can try is:

    Buy a new domain, instead of using "google" in it, change it in "g"
    Go to google webmasters / Site Configuration / Change of Address / Follow the steps

    Wait a few days/weeks, if the site is not coming back. Give it a try with the site to be reconsidered with the new domain.

    Don't know if it works, but good luck.
