    A while ago I posted about a favorite SEO blog of mine (makemoneyonlinewithseo.com) where the owner was trying to get his website back from being deindexed. The original post I made about that was here (how to bring a deindexed site back from the dead). At the time posted, it was a future case study, he hadn't actually gotten his target site deindexed yet.

    He just did an update article (Feb 12) which is definitely worth a read.

    In summary, he took his website through two reinclusion requests. He did certain changes and was denied the first time, then did more changes and the second one has his site returning back to normal. He fully outlined his process of bringing a deindexed website back to life.

    This is on a de-indexed site. It was totally 100% obliterated from Google, site:domain.com returned nothing. So if that has happened to you, there's hope. It's a great read.

    very interesting, basically he just makes it look less spammy and more like a real company, removes any shitty content.

    Curious to see if when the site was indexed again if he came back with all the same rankings, and all his back legs were showing in the serps

    Thanks for sharing this! Its always good to have data like this in your arsenal in case you ever run into these problems.

    He's lucky though, I've heard horror stories where Google simply won't reinclude a website, regardless of how hard that person has tried.

    I've been denied indexing on an aged domain that I purchased, without any previous knowledge that the domain had a problem. There were no archive.org listings or anything to hint a problem. Good to see some tips that might help.

    I have a domain that I bought that was bad. Requested reinclusion last week. Today I check my stats and see that Google came to my site. The referring url was from the search engines where someone had typed in the EXACT url of my site and searched for it. They found it!

    How can google type my url into engine and FIND my site... If its not indexed???

    Weird...

    I had a similar problem some while ago.

    Google deindexed my website (probably manual review).
    After getting denied 3 or 4 times with clean, but obvious MFA themes (ie. no real design, just a lot of content) i changed the theme to a corporate business theme.

    Without even some proper images and some sloppy descriptions Google allowed my site back to the serps.

    But im pretty sure that my site is still kind of penalized, cause im getting outranked by shitty new websites with an even more worse backlinkprofile.

    I've had one of my blogs deindexed that was in ALN. I'm not going to even bother with cleaning up the site, google reinclusion request, etc. Just going to get another PR domain and charge the deindexed one to the game. :)

    Just got my site re-indexed by google. Was 1.5 weeks after I sent in the request. They confirmed it had been manually removed, and that the removal had been revoked.

    :)

    So no one could see your site with site:domain.com command in Google? Or your rankings were just not as good?

    Thanks for the share.

    Unfortunately the whole story is no so easy if you deal with a backlink based penalty.

    Thanks, but would it be better to just change the domain all together?

    Couldn't see the site in google, not bot activity. Would NOT index. Finally got approval from google and it wasn't 1 hour before googlebot came around finally and started indexing :)
