    I have a couple of sites siting on 4 IP's that are straggling with the ranking and i think that the IP's maybe are penalized by google. Before these sites i had other sites on the same IP's for which i used blackhat link building methods and the sites were deindexed. So i am wondering if the IP's are penalized because of this.

    Is there any way to test if the IP's are penalized (banned) by google?

    If you rank #1 for any keyword or any long text (paste a unique paragraph of text from your site, within quotes in Google's search box) they are NOT penalized.
