    Hello people, one of my main websites just got deindexed in the last few hours. Analytics still shows some traffic for today but its gone from Google. All the website. Webmaster tools doesnt show any problem, when I press "show as google" (or something like that, I see it in my language) its all good. What the real fuck??? I am panic here!!! What the hell happened???
    I have a project on SEMrush that track my keywords and it confirms all pages and keywords are gone.

    If Google Analytics is showing organic traffic for today but your site is gone from Webmaster Tools, the latter of which is a few days behinds while the former updates every hour, then I would that your site might not really be indexed.

    In Webmaster Tools, you're checking the correct property, right? I remember when I switched one of my sites over to Https and added the Https property, I nearly flipped when I saw my site getting deindexed in Webmaster Tools, but it turns out I was checking the old Http property when I should have started checking the new Https property I added.

    Dude the same thing is happening to me everything is getting deindexed all at once. Some of my keywords are gone and some of my keywords are just dropping a LOT. I think it is a google update. I spent so much time,energy and money on this website and I am just super sad.

    Shit, sorry to hear that. How were the rankings acting prior the de-indexation ? The last 7 days ~ ?

    I am checking the right website yes. On webmaster tools the website in ok, no problemas. But when I go to google and check site:www.mysite.com is gone. And even when I look for any keyword that I know he ranks on first page, is not there.

    May be the another reason would be Noindex on Robot.txt

    That's weird. Were you doing anything on the site that may have caused it be deindexed (spam, thin content, etcetera)? Is there anything that you know of that could be preventing Google from crawling your site?

    I'll keep trying to think of what it could be, but I've never personally dealt with my sites being deindexed with no warning.

    Anchor text diversity ? Toxic (ex foreign content, ex used as a PBN, ex hacked etc) PBN domains having your links ?

    It also happens to one of my authority site a few days ago.

    Well, what you can do now is wait for 2-3 weeks. If it is a 100% goner, then just shut all the content and move on. Nothing much you can do to be honest.

    All content is unique...!

    May be some anchor text or my PBN, but I built a great PBN, great domains, no spam... dont know...

    The thing is nothing is showing on webmaster tools. Robots.txt are crawling correctly, sitemap ok...!
    I checked on google.com on every browsers, just in case...is de-indexed.

    My PBN is intact. My other websites are ok. I think I must wait...?
    If this is a penalty because of PBN sites, would my PBN be de-indexed too?

    No. How can you not know your anchor text diversity. If you have over 100 links, and more than 20% of those links has your main keyword term in them or if you have 250+ links and more than 10% of those links has your main keyword term in them, then your website was de-indexed because of that. Those percentages are not 'set in stone', sometimes it's enough to get 2-3 similar anchor text backlinks in a small time frame like 2-3 days and it's enough to send your site down.

    when you have checked site:website.com on google search query and if it's really gone then it's really deindexed.... sad but move on..

    When you are doing some black hat shaddy things or even whitehat. You have to be prepared when something like this happens, plan B so called (diversify, duplicate, multiply)....

    Over the past 3 years working online, I have constantly experienced deindexed, penalized, deranked stuff like that and I was very saddened and disappointed. It felt it its the end of your life because you spent so much time, energy, or money on it and one day gone!

    The only thing you can do is move on... this time, execute plan B (diversify, duplicate, multiply)... and don't stop!

    Can I still use the domain for anything, it have great links?
    Or the content?

    (And about the anchor text, I always use diversity.)

    Just got a message on webmaster tools. It says my website is pure spam.
    The site appears to use aggressive spam techniques such as [FONT=Roboto, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, sans-serif]automatically generated gibberish[/FONT], [FONT=Roboto, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, sans-serif]cloaking[/FONT], [FONT=Roboto, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, sans-serif]scraping content[/FONT] from other websites, and/or other repeated or egregious violations of Google's quality guidelines.

    You see, the irony is that I built this website with content I wrote myself and some content I bought here, in the BHW content forum.

    Google bot can't tell between gibberish and non gibberish, unless there are shitload of grammar mistakes, or the content doesn't make any sense at all.

    It can only detect content which was plag'd from other sites. I think in this case it's "and/or other repeated or egregious violations of Google's quality guidelines."

    Its manual action. Check in webmaster for manual action. This happened to me twice.

    How often does google change the way bots analyze pages?
