    Need some advice please:

    my web host shut down my sites for 4 full days because of an attack - one of my domain was a "phishing site." I finally got my sites back after 4 days. However on the 5th day, i lost all my search ranks. (the day i got back, my main site actually appeared on 1st page for the 1st time.)

    I have pinged but it's 4 days later, my site is still nowhere to be found.

    What can i do?

    thanks.

    Sounds like you got reported as an attack malware site. Pinging wont help. You need to contact google.

    if you still can access the cpanel, you can cosider temporary move/forward the links to park site and say the site is under maintainance if you do not want to loose the customer.

    I will consider to buy a new host, and get refund from the one they fail to promise like 99% up time.

    The thing is that i have sites A,B,C on 1 host, and only C site got attacked. web hosting company shuts all my sites down. that why i lost ranks of sites A and B. The 2 sites did not get attacked.

    Basically, I lsot rank because of site outage for 4-5 days, not because of malware..

    once your site is caught/reported for phising,it is difficult to come back.But it is not impossible.Submit to webmaster tools and build some good links

    The problem is not phishing. It is the site outage for 4-5 days.

    btw, i still do have a rank - only it's rank #120, not #9.
    google also returns something with the link: and site: operators.

    another site used to rank #1 and gets 400 visitors. now its nowhere to be found.

    Can anyone offer any advice? It's been 3 months and I have bought thousands of links and still I am not ranked within 200??? what is going on?

    also during this period of time the search results returned pages actually come down from 2M to fewer than 1M...
