I'm curious to know what got you flagged or penalized, can you share your experiences.
We have a big website, around 80,000 visitors a day. One day, we get deindexed from Google. The reason: harmful redirects. It took us several months, rebuilding the entire website (and building a mobile version), and then another few months for Google to look over our website and index us back on Google. This ordeal lasted 6 months. Still haven't found the exact source that caused this deindexication.
What I learned: Google's support is a fugazi.
I got my multiniche website penalized for 'pure spam' even though the site had only a small amount of manual backlinks
My first started my site,I mostly focused on WH/GH niches,than later I made the mistake made a few posts on BH niches where traffic a lot better,few weeks after that my site got deindexed
My guess:'Competitor' reported my site and all the others in that niche
Yep someone reporting websites these days, i can spot it instantly.
Yeah,now SEO situation is now pretty much the same as with YT with flaggers now as reporters,I guess I just stay to low comp WH niches
google is currently harsh deindexing at the rate of 500,000 sites in 2015 alone....
Two of my sites were deindexed for spam. Sincerely i had not done any SEO for over 6 months, all the old links were not even existing. One day i deceided to build 20 WEB 2, original with only brand name and raw url....
Bum the penalty. I dont think its the 20 web 2s, i even dont think they had finished indexing. I guess Google has turned to be harsh
Well i cleaned up and the rankings are back
Second site... also got a penalty. I had used a Web 2 package frm blackhat then tier 2 and tier 3. cleaned up a few weeks ago waiting for rankings to behave
curiosity kills you man. just experience it once, just kidding, I didn't actually experience it in anyway.
