    Hi,

    i got a google ban. My rankings dropped from 100 organic visitors from google to 3-5 a day.
    In google analytics i have no manual penalty.

    How can i know why google banned me? I have not used blackhat seo on that website.
    The url is: http://beleggersforum.net ,it's a Dutch forum.

    Algorithmic penalties do not appear in the Google Search Console. You'll have to go over your index status and search analytics as well as figure out what recent changes you made to figure out the cause.

    You site is not banned. Go to google and type site:beleggersforum.net ....plenty of results there. If they de-indexed your site, you would not see that...

    There's a difference between a penalty and de-indexed. Could be a penalty drop but it could also be something else :)

    Ok so it's a penalty not a ban? ...

    There are no crawl issue's and i resubmitted my sitemap.

    I just remember something. I did a "free keyword checkup" by some seo company a while ago. They promised to rank for one keyword for free. Maybe they spammed a lot of low quality backlinks to my website. I emailed them last week to explain my situation and they said they deleted the links. Do i need to disavow when links are deleted?

    Check ahrefs.com to see if you received a big jolt of new backlinks recently.

    It often takes Google Webmaster Tools several days after a big drop to actually show if you got hit with a manual action against your site.

    Your site homepage is not indexed! Maybe resubmit in WMT as there was some issue and hopefully not a manual penalty.

    Unless you removed a bunch of pages recently, sudden dips in indexed pages should be watched and investigated further if necessary. The same thing applies to sudden spikes as well.

    Did you check your internal links as well to see if there's any unusual activity?

    UptonGoodwin is also correct, there was a user on here who saw a huge dip in traffic and it took Google about a week to send them the manual action penalty.

    Never a good idea to have a company rank you for a term free. that will always come back and kick you in the butt.

    If you dont have a dedicated IP switch to that. If you dont have an ssl add it. Then do a press release and see if that brings you back.

    If there is any sort of penalty against your site, they will let you know via email. When my site was penalized in the past I got an email from them.

    Ad some new content, submit it to GWT if it is added to the index you are not banned, if it isn't indexed in 24 hours then you have a problem

    If you have had a large influx of pages added to your website like you image shows, this could potentially be a hack.

    It says: No manual webspam actions found. I have this penalty for about 2-4 weeks so i should have got a message by now.

    I have not removed a bunch of pages recently.

    My internal links are not showing good i think. How can it come i have so less internal links?
