Do not use duplicate content to your website and remove spammy links from your site and submit reconsideration.

Has anyone got recovered by doing 301 redirect or anything similar?

@onlinework Just tried with two of them, but I did not validate the domain change in the same gsc as someone else did; I edited a bit the website after cloning, I randomized post dates including random schedules, I cleared all the content in the old website, set as noindex and then redirected 301. I also added the new property to a new, different search console gmail account. Will see how it goes the next month

Any updates mate? This is even worst than the manual penalty since the webmasters don't get a message in the webmaster tools and don't know what to do in order to resolve the problem. I am ready to hire a freelancer who is able to fix this with my wh website.

They just both got indexed after gsc submission of new domain. I will see in upcoming weeks if they can get over the 4 pages of results limit. They both should as they have 50 and 300+ posts respectively

Anyone has similar issues recently? Website index good at first, but gradually dropped, finally when you site: on Google, only 4 page indexed, this is a known penalty if I am right, but not much talks online.

:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:


Anyone else? What have you found?
Yes, this happened to me on domains i spammed to death with backlinks

Someone on FB said they were hooked up to Rank Math instant indexing and the switched to GN Publisher and ran through Google Publisher center and it fixed this issue

My website is not in the Google News and I am using Yoast so i guess that will not help me at all. Thank you for the advice anyway.

Hi,

I've tested to add my penalised website to google adsense, to google news, etc...
Nothing works.
Any hints ?

In my case, although site list 4, but actual post link indexed properly. Is it a bug from G?

So how about your organic traffic? Still good even tho your site: serps only shows 4?
It was ranking pretty well on Bing through the years but not on Google. My traffic was like 3-5 clicks a day from Google.

2 of my site got this, I did a 301 in 1 of my site and in just a few days the 301'd site also got the 4 page index penalty and not the gradual decrease of indexed pages as I expected... LOL

So I guess we don't have any other option except starting with a new fresh domain.

I've got this on an expired domain. I grabbed a mid-DA expired domain and the wayback looked reasonable. Getting a pretty nasty toxic score on backlinks though - so I thought I would give it a go with a few posts and see what happened before committing to the domain in a big way. All pages have been manually submitted for indexing (and contain unique 1000+ word content written by myself) and I'm getting 4 results on the site: search.
Time to cut my losses I guess.
