    I have a legit forum dedicated to programming. I stopped maintaining it for 4 months because I was in a remote place where there was no Internet. During that time many people spammed my forum for backlinks for just about every niche you can think of and Google has taken my forum out of search. I just got done cleaning out all the spam and banning the spammers. Is there any way for me to get back in Google search? I was on the first page for my keywords.

    Try a reconsideration request. Tell google exactly what you just told us.

    You need to be very honest with google and say what the problem was, what you did to fix the problem, and why it won't happen again. Be very polite and tell the truth in the reconsideration request and if you truly fixed the problem or made every attempt to fix the problem, then most likely will put your site back to its original rankings.
