    If www.example.com has a copyright block/removal with Google like the one below: "In response to multiple complaints that we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 2 results from this page. If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaints that caused the removals at LumenDatabase.org: Complaint." From my understanding that is not a ban but a removal from the search results. If I 301 redirect from www.example.com to example.com the link juice is suppose to go to the new location. Would that mean that this block/removal is bypassed and the site would get its ranking back (in theory)? A second related question, what if I instead 301 the whole domain (both with www and without) to another domain (www.newexample.com) will the links juice go to the new domain and then Google block/removal will stay effective but not "travel" over to the new domain right?

    it is only a remove from ther search index so yes 301 would be effective in this situation, no need to redirect to another domain though you can just move to another page on the same domain, If you upload the same content that was removed once it probably will be again and I would suspect that big G might at some point deindex the entire domain however this last aprt is pure speculation

    lion1978 thanks for your reply.

    The thing is that the site didnt have any copyrighted material just a few posters of movies (no links to other sites either). When I check the DMCA report in this case there are hundreds of removed url from many many sites like TPB and other torrent sites. My site isnt like those. and still it was the root domain that got "removed/blocked" from Google search results while all other sites only had URLs blocked. Therefor 99% of all the sites Google traffic got blocked. To me it was an unfair block but I dont think Google cares much about that. Right now I have done a 301 from www.domain.com -> domain.com (without www.) and hope that will get the good rankings back. Next step would be to 301 the whole domain to a new domain and see how that goes.
