    Hi Guys,

    I need your brilliance here. My site: www.christmasgiftguru.com is no longer indexed in Google. It's at least a year old. The only links I sent to it recently was some socialbookmarking that I bought here for $4 last week.

    I had at least 300-400 pages indexed. Content: some original, some PLR...some Unique Article Wizard Plugin, and I think some may be Caffinated Content on auto.

    Any issues with my site map?

    Any issues with my meta tags? I use SEO All in One Plugin

    How about could someone by duplicating my site somewhere? How to tell?

    Or finally is Google just pissed off at me for some reason?

    What to do?

    Thanks for helping me out.

    its either a bug or a human editor

    if its a bug, theres a huge chance for it be reindexed before xmas
    if its the latter, goodbye

    Thanks, but what do you mean by bug? And why would a human editor not like my site all of a sudden?

    No disrespect snowwhite, but your comment is wrong.

    This persons site has been deindexed by google they say, and your saying that because it shows adsense adds, its obviously a bug?

    I have many sites deindexed by google for various reasons, but they all still show google adsense on them, one being www.1-article.info

    Just proving a point here, just because a site is deindexed doesnt mean there is a bug because it still shows adsense ok

    Look at all the sites that were made with the likes of traffic equalizer etc, that show adsense adds, but are banned from google index, see where i am going here..:cow_yello

    you dont have to respect me because of the big white bold name I have, hahahaha, this isnt real life, feel free to abuse me, lol

    ooops, really? well im basing it from my own experience and some clients we have handled before, maybe a coincidence, or im just crazy

    but still, theres still a possibility that its a techy glitch on the DC, although I havent checked the site stringently, I dont see anything uber BH about it that can be a ground for a ban

    wanna bet?

    Commiserations.

    It was probably flagged up for review with the bought socialbookmarking and some delving by the human reviewer threw up the CC and Article Wizard content = deindexed. It's probably a temporary deindexing and you will be reincluded in the future but chances are that site will never do well now.

    Hi Alexa,

    First of all I dont know if my service get you deindexed/banned by google.
    Because, before doing this service, I tried to test it on my sites first..and all those sites are new and 3 months old and nothing happen to them..

    As I know, right now Google is Updating the PR..

    and the weird thing is you website still have PR1..

    I just did a search on your first paragraph "" to see if someone had in fact copied your site (at least the home page) and no results came up.

    Maybe because you linked to your xml sitemap.

    I had a site deindexed because I linked to an xml sitemap before.

    It won't get flagged for the 100 social bookmarking service.

    Think about it, even manually, it would talk half a day to do. Google will not penialise you for working hard on White Hat SEO.

    If it has been banned, it will be for your CC and duplicate articles.

    Don't worry, probably a 'glitch' and it will be back soon!

    I just want to say that I love you all at BHW for giving a crap about me and my little Christmas site. The fact that you responded is great, but you had really good points.

    More than I can say for the Google Webmaster Group...they threw up all over my site. Fine, they don't like affiliate sites, go f--k yourself...I am here to make money.

    Sorry for the language...my Mother raised a lady, but when it comes to IM...

    Anway, 4wanglah...no worries. Your bookmarking service was very effective for me and paid for itself many times over. I will use you again next week, ok?

    Happy Holidays everyone,

    Alexa!

    Ugh. Sorry you had a hard time with the Google guys. I think Snow is right in saying it looks like a fluke; your site looks fine.

    I'm curious though, you said the G guys "threw up"; what did they say?

    Best of luck in any case; I'll be looking for your reindexing in the next few days.
