    Today my website was deindexed by google, it was getting about 5k visitors a day and now nothing, I can't see any 'manual webspam actions' in GWT but it has dropped out of the SERPS.

    It was a 3 year old site, all original hand written content (by me) in the hacking/cracking niche. I didn't do any link building. It had about 120 backlinks whch where just created by other sites. No BH SEO.

    There is one guy on CPAgrip who is says he can get it indexed again in 2 hours for $50 which I am a little skeptical of!

    What are my other options?

    I know 301 redirects don't work anymore.

    I was thinking I could just copy and update all the content to a good expired domain.

    If anyone else has a better idea or solution please leave a reply!

    Thanks in advance!!

    I'd wait and see if I was you. Give it 4-5 days, you should either see your rankings come back or a manual action on your GWT. It may not be "broken" no need to panic, yet.

    Wait for few days. If you don't get index there may be some reasons for deindex of your site.
    Its essential for websites to have a solid presence on the search engines.
    If Google deindex your website, surely have a negative impact on your scale.
    But once you got deindex don't waste your time you should initiate the effort to index your site.
    To get index on Google
    Use social media in a dedicated manner.
    Build quality backlinks.
    Replace low quality duplicate content with unique and original.
    Don't use noindex parameter.
    Use links in a proper way.
    Concentrate on meta tags and webdesigns also.
    Check the condition of the server.

    First off, is your site really deindexed, just dropped in ranking or dropped in ranking to the point where you have no traffic? Because those are 3 completely different cases and should be addressed differently. Answer those 2 questions and we might help you more:

    1/ does "site:yoursite.com" get results in google?
    2/ do you still receive a small amount of organic traffic ?

    If your site is not in the index. Start building quality backlinks.

    I am relying redirect traffic backlinks.
    Due to the ever-changing ranking factors change.

    Perhaps you use a program that is contrary to the policy affilias google, so that your website site in lower

    Looking for expired domain is a good choice but in order to that wait for sometime and your site is not indexed because may be the link from the other site that contain any spam.
    May be your site contains any unrelated keywords,look for the keywords that brings more visitors and create a good quality content related to your niche.
    Get more quality back links from an authority site which does not contain any spam.

    Yep really deindexed as I suspected. I got the 'Pure Spam' message in GWT today

    'Pages on this site appear to use aggressive spam techniques such as automatically generated gibberish, cloaking, scraping content from other websites, and/or repeated or egregious violations of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines'

    The thing is ALL content is hand written by me, no automatically generated content, I know what cloaking is but don't know how to do it so I doubt I am guilty of that, again all content is original and not scraped from other sites.

    I do have a fake hack/crack generator which I monetize with CPA offers, this is the only page on my site which I would honestly say doesn't provide 'valuable/useful' content for visitors, do you think this page is causing the problems and if I removed it and submitted a reconsideration request I could get it indexed again? (For some keywords this page was at the top of Google 'Rich Snippet' like this > http://www.brafton.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/internet-rich-snippet-quick-answer-box1.png)

    It was in the index for 3 years and now has a 'Pure Spam' penalty, I never used any programs to build links like GSA.

    My site WAS indexed for THREE years (5k visitors a day). It has been deindexed for 'Pure Spam', I am asking for solutions, I don't think any number of high quality backlinks will automatically remove the penalty.

    At first sight, I'd say that you might have been infected with some spam php script. You should hire someone to make sure your site is secure. Once it is, make sure your content is top notch quality and submit a request for re approval. Check that -> https://searchenginewatch.com/sew/h...at-are-google-penalties-what-to-do-to-recover

    If your site is not infected and your content is quality as you say, this is particularly weird. Move your content to another domain and retry.


    EDIT: Crack/hack modules are highly hatred by google. Forgot about that, may have been for that reason.

    You are not the only one. I see a lot of people complaining about sites getting deindexed in that niche.

    It happen a lot on these niche these time. I don't think you can do something against the penalty as G think it's deceptive or illegal content..

    Don't fall for that 2 hours / $50 scam.

    I had a website once, it just disappeared from Google index, had no backlinks, still I was pretty sure it got deindexed for some reason. Forgot about it for a while, then after a couple months I rechecked and it was indexed again, never dropped from index ever since. I suggest you wait a month or so and see what happens.

    The download site is very prone to carrying the virus, thus causing losses for Visitors to.

    Visitors want something useful.

    Pirated theme, your website will be reported by the makers of the original theme.

    Pirated software, your site will be reported by the manufacturer's website.

    Benefit with high quality and original content.

    Maybe google, received a report on your web site, so that your website deindex

    So unfortunately for you in this situation you will need to definitely kill the content of the site. Basically 'pure spam' means that Google looks at your website as a churn and burn black hat haven.



    The problem that you are going to have is Google has determined your website is actually detracting from the experience of the user. Even if you have the best content in the world the issue is that download page, and the CPA style of the marketing.

    Google really hates people who they feel get the 'better' of them, you can trust us on that one.

    What you can do:

    1. Remove that download page completely and disavow all links pointing to it directly, that is going to be the biggest step.
    2. Remove all content that is < 500 words with more than 3 outlinks
    3. Add long form content + 1,500 hand written words with external links to things like wikipedia
    4. Get social with the domain, join twitter chats and things like facebook groups. Put your name out there in a positive.
    5. Build social signal links from sites like Quora and Yahoo Answers, but not b.s. answers, you need to add value.

    Do this every day for a few weeks and wait for the disavow to update., once you have the bad links killed and the content burned, you can then pivot into whatever new vertical you want to tackle, but just know that this domain is now under the watchful eye of Big G, so be careful with anything shady at all. Keep everything above board, and you will be fine.

    Our real suggestion would be to scrap the domain and restart if this is the type of CPA you want to run.

    Have you tried contacting Google and explaining to them what you're explaining to us: that you content is original and not just some gibberish? Sometimes showing a strong belief in what you're doing and taking a solid stand for yourself can turn the tides against the mightiest of giants.
