My story I have a site that in my opinion looks nice and has good, helpful content. The site was ranking really well within 2 weeks of launching the site. (#5 and #8) 4 weeks after launching the site, google decided to de-index the domain and re-index the site like this: 18.104.22.168/myamazingurl.com I then disabled indexing on my server so google couldnt see my directories when they visited the IP adress and set up a 301 on these pages back to the domain. This caused google to de-index the pages like this: 22.214.171.124/myamazingurl.com Now nothing is indexed? I have pinged the sie, submited my sitemap and tried the fetch as google bot feature in webmater tools. My Questions Should I try anything special to get it indexed again? Is my site gone forever? Should I get a new domain and upload the exact same site to a new domain? Should I get a new domain and re do the entire site? I'm really lost as to what to do. No one I have spoken to has ever seen anything like this before. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks!
