    last month i have made a word press site and used keyword.co.cc domain.

    Today i found that the site got deindexed it

    I have totally unique content.
    click bump template
    Improve My Load Times (plugin) (my favorite better that "wp super cache" IMO)
    google xml site map

    today I got the message in google webmaster saying that i have done somting worng and correct it and apply for reconsideration.

    I dont know what happend is it because it is a co.cc domain

    I just removed the improve my load time plugin and update wp and
    resubmitted
    dont say it is clickbump template because I have other .com site running on click bump template

    From my understanding, they were ALL deindexed =/. In all honesty though, buy a cheap .info domain, and start from there. It'll probably save you a lot of hassle.

    All my co.cc domains got deindexed. But it is a way to get them back. You need to have google approve it first.
    As I get the message in webmaster tools (in my google account) I am able to tell google that my site is not the spammy version, but have unique content.

    In my case they where autoblogs, so I won't get them indexed again :-/

    The problem with .co.cc is that it was never a TLD (top level domain). .cc was the domain extension for a company who registered the domain name "co" to come up with the domain co.cc.

    Then when someone bought a co.cc domain name what they were actually getting was a subdomain eg. subdomain.co.cc This meant that when Google wanted to ban these sites, all they had to ban was one domain name.

    These subdomain type of domain names are more common than people realise (uk.com being another example) Lesson to be learnt here is that if you are building sites of value is to always choose a top level domain.

    I have a load of co.cc domains - I use them for testing, image hosting and stuff, so no problem that they got de-indexed.

    If a site is important to you, if it's important it's ranked in google etc - then just buy a cheap domain name, it will always be a gamble with any free domain and/or hosting

    One of my co.cc sites was doing ok, by accident really, good backlinks etc, so I've just 301'd all the content to a .info I had spare - seems to be pickin git up ok.

    what you told is good suggestion . most probably i will do it . Even if my site got deindexed i got my articles in the article directory on the first page that drives traffic to my domain. most probably i will redirect the site using 301 after purchasing a .info domain

    Google doesn't just ban domains willy-nilly and that is why legitimate TLDs most likely will not get banned. They do a cost-benefit analysis and obviously with co.cc they felt the costs were far greater than the benefits of keeping it in. I have heard that co.cc might try to work with Google to rid of malicious domains and then Google will eventually let them back in, but it is only rumor.

    Either way, co.cc is only a domain and not an actual hierarchy TLD. The chances of banning hierarchy TLDs is a lot lower.
