    Really strange, and dunno it will work with everybody. But I got my 'severe google penalty' removed with just changing WP themes and leaving it dead for a few weeks and slowly it all removed google penalty....

    After Panda update loads of my sites were kinda screwed and got google penalty. As I didnt give a shit anymore about the sites I tried a new WP theme on a few sites as I wanted to test out a new theme I bought. Then I did the same on a few other sites, and checked for penalty here:

    http://tools.seomoves.org/penaltychecker/


    Surprisingly I have no penalty anymore and one site which use to hover around bottom to mid of page 1 on Google is now #1 on those KW

    Dunno if it works with everyone of if it is just temporarily, but try it out as you dont have anything to lose anyway with penalized sites ;)

    So:

    Step 1: change WP theme to something different
    Step 2: let it rest for a while
    Step 3: (maybe) ur back on top

    I have just tested this out on a few low competition niches, but am gonna try it out on all on my penalized sites after I finish this post. Just had to share this with you guys who are in the same position!

    Just try it out!

    Love & Peace,
    Alexfrance

    Whats with this penalty checker thing all of a sudden? That thing is bogus. Crap. Fake. Ridiculous.
    How come there are like a dozen new threads the last 24 hours discussing this 'tool'?

    How do you know the results are accurate. Do you have a backdoor into the 'penalty database' of Google?

    Well, if ur site is not ranking on ur main KW all of a sudden, you know something is wrong. On sites which got slapped, it gave an indication, and those not slapped were given indication of no penalty

    I have good ranking sites that supposedly have a penalty so it is bullshit.

    Just check these sites with this penalty checker

    Code:
    articlealley.com
    articlecity.com
    goarticles.com
    ezinearticles.com
    
    None of them have any kind of penalty :rolleyes: only articlebase has severe penalty :p

    during Google's last crawl your site was dead so they don't recognized your penalty and removed it. but don't worry when Google will re crawl your site will be panelized again :)

    Result for google.co.uk
    This domain has a severe penalty.

    And one of my domains reads this...

    "This domain is either banned or has never been indexed by Google."
    Dunno how i'm ranking very well for some pretty competitive keywords then...

    I've never really trusted them things anyway tbh.

    you just got lucky, all that matters it's if you;r rankings are back again, if you have traffic. How much time since you got the penalty?
