    Hi there, Yesterday I got a website deindex completely(info:, site: can't find any pages at all, completely removed), I'm not sure what caused it, but:

    1. I have the 'seo searchterm tagging 2' plugin installed, I set it display 100 search terms under each post, and I used a css code to hide them as they look messy.
    2. I have scrape content pulled from wprobot, and the scraped articles have ******** links link to the article source and nofollow links that link to the sites that the source articles link to.
    3. I used the amazon module, but I forgot to cloaked the affiliate links, the affiliate links are nofollow.
    4. I use the css code to hide the scraped/wprobot content, and add original articles above the hidden wprobot content, so that the visitors will only see the original articles.
    5. The site was a pr4, 4 years aged domain I bought on Jan 2011, it ranked pretty quickly and the traffic was rising before deindex. Btw the domain name is a movie's name but the content I put on has nothing to do with the movie...
    6. I had only used ArticleRank and UAW and linxboss to build backlinks for it.


    My questions:
    1. What cause the deindex?
    2. Is it safe to use seo searchterm tagging 2 plugin? Has anybody ever got deindex because of it?
    3. Will 301 redirect to another site helps to salvage the link juice? I'm thinking about grabbing another aged domain, put up some contents to it and backlink it, then wait a few months then 301 the old site. I'm also thinking about creating some web2.0s and redirect the old site to these web2.0s.
    4. Is it worthy to get it index again? Since it's deindex, I read that it's possible to send reconsideration request to google get it index again after you make changes to your site, but even you're manage to get it index again, can it still rank well at all?

    Any input will be appreciated, thanks in advance!

    i don't think Google would like a site that has search terms showing up and then hidden through script. You better remove it and then wait for a while or file for reconsideration. If you undo the wrong, the site will definitely get indexed again.

    Yeah I gonna remove them, I think this can be a reason, but I have this search terms+hiding code setup in a few other sites, some are autoblogs some are whitehat sites and they don't seem to have issues, so far, only the deindex one got hit.
    Forgot to mention I have google anylitics installed on all my sites including the deindex one.

    "is it worth indexing again' depends, was it making you money?

    I've heard rumors of that searchtag plugin. It's making your keyword density crazy high. I mean, 3-4%, you've already got it in the title, tag, and several times in the actual content. With that, you're adding it another multitude of times as well. Remove that and you may see some changes. At the very least, it couldn't hurt.

    "The site was a pr4, 4 years aged domain I bought on Jan 2011, it ranked pretty quickly and the traffic was rising before deindex."

    Here's a clue. When a domain changes ownership, google no longer treats the domain as being aged. In other words, it treats it as if it's just been registered. So it's possible the site has been thrown into the sandbox.
    Also, your site violated so many of googles T&Cs, i would have been surprised if it didn't get de-indexed.

    That plugin is simply keyword stuffing, along with hidden text, it's an obvious de-index.

    You got deindexed because of wprobot and SST2. Maybe in conjunction of both. But from sst2 you got a -30 penalty at the minimum for creating spam 404 pages that change the 404 headers to 200. I don't care what anyone says, that plugin was probably one of the best plugins until about a few days ago. When you change 404 headers to 200 to have them indexed with no content. That is borderline blackhat. Google hates that shit.

    There is a giant footprint with that plugin. I'm trying to split test this, but every single 'large' site that uses this tactic to generate traffic has been slapped to shit by Google 7 or so days ago. Its a silent update and a major algo change. This was a pretty slick hidden technique to generate thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of visitors by creating millions (Yes, I mean millions) of indexed pages.

    You can do what others are doing and 301 it and disable the plugin

    I can write up a small info thread if you want

    maybe its the rate of indexing which pulls the trigger, and the OP was clearly spamming, see this from his post..

    Code:
     I set it display 100 search terms under each post

    re:thevil I didn't use the create tag pages setting, I only used it to list the keywords under the posts.

    re:neo3187 The thing is I'm still have it on some sites and don't seem to have a problem so far, but only the deindexed site got hit.
