    Guys, I am freaking out right now.

    I have currently 15 websites wich were making around 1k/day income. These 15 websites are hosted on the same dedicated server. All websites are in different niches and ranked really well for many keywords.

    I just woke up this morning, went to check my websites rankings like I do every morning and guess what... ALL my 15 websites are DEINDEXED, ALL OF THEM (site:URL, return no results at all for all the websites).

    Google just raped me and I lost EVERYTHING, really, I am left to nothing now...

    Just lost the SEO I did for the last 3 years on all these websites all of a sudden. Yesterday, I was fine and today and I am big ZER0.


    EDIT:

    If you got to that point once, you can very well do it again!

    Analyze what you did wrong, and rebuild. You can reach your recent point again soon enough!

    Google changed the way they rank stuff recently.

    Are your website servers blacklisted or anything like that?

    Call them up and demand some answers.


    Sorry about your loss of income.


    How are your sites doing on the other search engines?

    1k a day for even 3 months is 90k. Factoring in that if you were actually living off this, you would have waited 3+ months of it being stable. Enjoy the profits, move onto something else.

    Sorry to hear that buddy. Hopefully you have something to fall back on until you get there again?

    i never got the point of doing something just to have to do it again.


    Do it right the first time and you can have sustainable income forever...

    Sorry to hear that bro... I know exactly how you feel as G00ble did this to me about a year ago for 30 sites! They were just micro mfas but it still hurt... take a day off, consume your favorite beverage, and then get back to work... you know how to do it so just repeat.

    All my websites are doing fine on the other search engines, but the traffic lost is just unbelievable.


    Anyone know if getting a new dedicated server, changing every domain name and doing a 301 redirect for all my websites could correct this mess?

    I just realised the hard way that SEO is a game.

    Your business should not JUST rely on Google. You need to create some kind of Branding to build a sustainable income.

    I'm sure if you give it a few days the may reappear. If not maybe try a) moving hosts, maybe spread the sites over a few hosts. b) test out buying a new domain and redirect one of the sites, see if that works, I've not got first hand experience but have heard this can work...

    Good luck and I hope you saved some of that dosh...

    Don't even think about submitting a reconsideration request to G00ble... they will never tell you why you got deindexed, and it is just a waste of time.

    J0kerz, why do you think that this has happened? Do the sites have links between them? Do they use the same adsense account or google webmaste tools? Do they have the same template or big parts of them are the same? Have you recently done something that might have caused this?

    If you suspect what was the reason, then you might try to correct it and hope that your sites will return to their positions... Good Luck!

    I would try to make changes to one site at a time before making a huge move with everything only to find out that G puts them back where they've been.

    Obviously you know this, but, is there anything that you can put your finger on that would have caused this with the recent update?

    That's a huge hit... I'd take my time and try to revive those sites rather than just let them die and start again. If its been less than a day, I'd give it a little time before jumping the gun. I've had some pretty odd things happen to some of my sites throughout the past week. One of them was de-indexed and it did reappear where it was. It's possible that could happen, unless you already know what the problem is!

    Sorry to hear about your loss, but that's the reality of the SEO game.

    The lesson to be learned by the readers is that while the profits are rolling in you should be busy reinvesting some of your cash in new networks on new domains, new hosting and built in completely different ways (content / site structure / backlinks) to your old stuff. Don't wait until you get nailed to start building again.

    Every time Google changes their algo or does a purge of spam, you want some stuff that goes up and some stuff that goes down - you can weather the storm because you have covered every angle you can think of.

    Also multiple completely separate networks that aren't traceable to the same person / organization / scripts are a necessity of you don't want to get pumped in the ass by the Googlecock.

    Yea your best bet would be to sell your sites and get back where you where before

    Best of Luck!

    that sucks ! But still start again , sell those sites ! Make new sites and you must be experienced now and I guess it won't take that much time to get those sites making $$ for u. But yea I can understand how it feels when u lose something like that. Feels disgusting.

    EDIT : Why so serioussssss ? LOL ! :D
