    hello everybody

    i just have a few questions

    does google tell you when they will deindex your site?

    also , is getting a penalty the same thing as getting deindexed?

    can a site get reindexed after getting deindexed?

    Home Page:
    Yes if you have site verified in search console
    Penalty != ban deindexed
    Yes just use reconsideration option, but it is sometimes hard to do

    Wait a week if you just submitted.

    Also check for any unknown redirects or conditional hacks using web-sniffer.net. Change the useragent to google to identify if you have any conditional issues. This tool will also give you a clue if any weird firewall issues exist. There used to be a time that GoDaddy used a 302 meta refresh as a DDoS deterrent on their routers that fucked up indexing for a lot of people. Haven't seen it in a long ass time but I'm sure some small time hosts might use it.

    thanks for the reply

    i just removed some weird redirects, i did fetch as google and manually added sitemaps and pinged google

    before i had just /sitemap.xml

    now i added

    /atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=500

    /atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1001&max-results=500

    /atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1501&max-results=500

    /atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=501&max-results=500

    and now it is at submitted 1354 / indexed 1195

    and it's also showing on previous days

    11/23/2015

    submitted 3,360
    indexed 1,772

    this is all really weird, is this usually what happens when you get deindexed? or is there some odd complication with my sites sitemap or robots.txt i don't understand :/
