    Hey there!
    When I checked my google webmaster tools about a week ago I noticed that two of my websites had been removed from the google search results, because they apparently did not fully comply with their guidelines. However, google did not give me a specific reason.
    They both had about 300 visitors daily, and I'm not quite sure why they were taken down.
    Most of the content on both sites consists of spinned articles I didn't put much work in, so some of them don't make a whole lot of sense. Is that why google removed them from the search results?
    Also, there was a warning that the website was removed in the webmaster tools, but somehow it is not there anymore. Does that mean that google will allow them to rank again and everything is fine?
    I still can't find anything when i try to google them...could this just be the temporary sandbox? Is there anything I should do now?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Jeff

    Yes it was probably due to junk spinned content. Google does not like that.

    Unfortunately, 90% of the Internet is junk spinned content.

    Does your website using Adsense?
    I think there is no reason for G to remove your website unless using adsense and they think your website does not fit their rules.

    I disagree. I think 50% of the internet is simply reposted content, with no spinning at all. In the case of simply reposting, without spinning, at least the content is still readable. Junk spinned content is not even readable so if a human reviews the site, they will see it is absolutely worthless.

    Yeah, it is using adsense. So do you think if I replace the spun content with real selfmade content, it will be able to rank again?

    Thank you for the answers

    Google is just cleaning house and throwing out the garbage. The same thing you do at home.

    Google is in the business of providing information to their visitors. Post original, interesting and informative articles that add value to your website and the search engines and you have a good chance of being reindexed.

    Alright, thank you very much. I'm not very good at writing articles myself, because English is not my first language, do you know any places where I could get some good and cheap articles for my website? I can't really find anything on here.

    Thank you for all the answers!

    its pretty common sense to have fresh, new and unique articles to begin with anyway. Would you read junk from a junk blog? No

    You're right.

    It's my first time trying this kind of stuff, so I was not really putting that much effort into it, more like trial and error.
    I was surprised that it worked so well, I made 180 bucks in 2 months, even though I just started. And that was with spun garbage content, I guess it will be a lot more once I can create some nice articles for the website.

    Thanks
