    Hello together,

    i have unknown problems with google. One of my sites got indexed 1 month ago. In this month i started backlinking (slow and natural) added some new content aso. Today my site wasn't found in the index anywhere. It is still indexed at msn and aol. I absolutely don't know for what reason.. I recognized this problem at two of my other sites also. But in this case they were back in the index after 2-3 days.

    Do you have any suggestions how to get back. I tried to set up a sitemap, enter webmastertools, followed all of googles guidelines aso.

    Every answer is much appreciated!

    Cheers!

    Pete

    Ermm my site started to get deindexed from 1000 but i have checked it again a couple days ago and i have more than 8k indexed pages which is more than last time i checked.

    I was left with 300 pages indexed but now obviously a lot more pages indexed :)

    I have added the database here.

    Hi,

    This could be caused by the infamous sandbox effect

    One of my sites was deindexed, I kept on resubmitting it everytime I couldnt find my pages and it would appear back on there but man, I have seriously lost some PR, I have gone from page 1 on my keywords which are very special keywords that not many sites at all use, put it this way, when I first indexed my site I was result #2 on Google and Yahoo! and now Im not even in the top 10 pages :(

    These sites wouldn't have been NIAB packages would they (if they are you'll know whatthat is)? I couldn't keep one of those indexed for more than 6 months no matter what I tried. They all died one by one. If they are truely de-indexed you can request to be re-added in the Google webtools area. I managed to get one site that was mostly original content back in but never was able to get the NIAB sites back in.

    use this method normally gets you back in favor with the search engines in about 24 hours, how to do it read below.

    On your Blog create a post using some keywords, Example: "cheap timeshare vacations"

    Then write something keyword rich in the post like


    We have added a new section for Cheap Timeshare Vacations. All the timeshare we feature on this page will be bargain priced less than or at $1000. If you find a timeshare that you would like to purchase please click on the ad number to the left of the listing to see more information on the selected timeshare. Remember, these inexpensive timeshare vacations go fast, so take a look and keep checking back for more cheap timeshare.

    submit the complete link of your blog to Digg.com and part of the text and in less than five minutes you will have that link indexed in the search engines.

    I don't think this method will work if the site has been banned but may apply if only "sandboxed". Typically if the site is only sandboxed (still debated whether it today exists or not) it can be found deep in the pages of G but when there's nothing to be found, banned is more likely...and digging it won't help. On a second note, anyone found a way to get back into DIGG after having your account and IP banned?

    When you get sandboxed you disappear from the index totally, just like getting banned for real, but the difference is that you can get the site back in the index.

    Also usually when I make new pages I get many pages indexed during the first 24 hours, like over 100 pages, then in couple of days everything dissapears from the index, the site is no where to be found, but it comes back after some days and starts to get traffic.

    So there is sandboxing, and it does mean exactly that the page is no where to be found.

    When you get to be found but long long down the google line, it means that your ranking bad.

    i think its a temporary glitch since some of my sites are gone too, one site was ranked POSITON #3 for some keyword, and now its gone. Its not a BH site and there is no reason for this - i think its the normal up-down cycle w/ google having to do with their current PR update.
    I am "quite" sure it will appear soon.

    I have also seen other sites disappearing for the same keyword, so its not only me.

    Folks, sites do not get de-indexed for absolutely no reason. Do you think some BigG employee sits there and randomly removes sites from the index for the hell of it? Break their t&c and you are likely to get slapped. Plus, usually when a site is totally removed from the index, Google lets you know (at least that's what Google says but I've not had personal experience of this as I have never had a site banned) and gives you the opportunity to correct the problem.

    If you've been slapped with a penalty, then you've been pushing the limits of what G determines as acceptable SEO practice.

    And if you've not received some form of penalty, ever, then you're not pushing hard enough ;)

    Pull back your activities into the safe zone for a bit then request the site be reconsidered for inclusion, and all will be well again.

    Sorry to disagree with you Stumu, but I have had 3 NIAB sites (pretty whitehat) completely removed from the index. Big G DID not give any indication that they were removing them.

    I asked G in the forums and the only reason they could give was that the content must be duplicate (which it isn't since it has dynamic php pages and totally original home page content). The first one disappeared in April 08 and still not sign of coming back.

    My only recourse now is to re-build them all with new templates on new ip addresses which I don't fancy since they are massive sites.

    They are featuring in Digg, Stumbleupon etc and have all got blogs - none of which help. The funny thing is that if I do a site: www.mysite.com, G will index the stumbleupon pages and other directories that have my sites in them. But that's the only way I can find them in G.

    Yup that's the EXACT same thing that happened to me. JP was no help at all. The only person that helped me was a long time member of the forum who told me to use a unique and different template, re-write all the content, and upload it all (this time much more slowly) on a new Class C IP.

    Obviously I quit paying for the subscription. The annoying thing is there are still quite a few NIAB sites in the index that haven't made any modifications at all.

    Do you have any real content on there? Sites are often de-indexed if they appear to be very spammy, without any real non-duplicated content.
