Banned from Google and Wondering Why?
There are those that get on the computer one night and find that all of their Web pages have disappeared from Google. While, others are still in the search engine index, but do not rank high for nothing, not even for their Web site's name. It's a Web site owners worst nightmare, getting kicked out of the search engines.
Finally, many webmasters had little or no warning that this was likely to happen. Many webmasters are left with no idea why they were kicked out and are left wondering how to get back in Google's search engine. There may be numerous reasons why a Web site is banned by Google. The most frequent reasons for being banned are listed below in this report.
That is when multiple Web pages have the exact same content. Usually Google will only give a penalty to the Internet page for this, where the page will not rank very high for the keywords in that Web page, but there have been instances where complete sites were prohibited because they had to much duplicate content. You should make certain there is not any other Web site using your content.
To check for duplicated content only search with unique phrase on your Web page. If you discover a Web site that has stolen your content you should contact the site owner and let them take it down or face legal action. Also, for copyright offenses visit http://www.google.com/dmca.html and notify them that someone is infringing on your site's copyright
This is Web pages created just for search engines, where it provides one version of a page into a online user and another version to a search engineoptimization. Cloaking Web pages are created to do well for certain keywords. There are a variety of ways to deliver cloaking Web pages. Each search engine's spider has an agent name, the cloaked page is than delivered to the spider with the user agent name that was selected.
You could also deliver cloaked pages to the search engines by IP address, but Google and other search engines say they can detect cloaking. There are different reasons to use cloaking, such as custom speech delivery and geotargeted advertising.
Hidden text or hidden links
This is a link that's imperceptible to the naked eye on a Web page, but are seen by spiders. Search engines use to have difficulty seeing this technique, but now days you should avoid doing so because Google and other search engines can spot this easily. Even if a search engine does not spot your hidden connection, a competitor might find it and report your website.
Occasionally this can be done without even knowing, so you better double check each Web page you've messed with in the last couple of weeks.
Keyword Stuffing is when you load a Web page up with keywords in the Meta tags or on the Web page's content. The General techniques now for keyword stuffing are repeating the exact same word(s) over and over again in the Meta tags or on the Web page's content or using invisible text, because we discussed above in this report. If the word is repeated to much it will raise a red flag to the search engines and they probably will place a Spam filter on the website.
Linking to bad neighborhoods
Bad neighborhoods are designed to improve your site's ranking or is Internet site's using Spam methods to improve search engine ranking. You ought not link to any Web page that uses Spam techniques to improve ranking. Additionally you shouldn't join link exchanges which are designed to enhance ranking or Page Rank. If you're unaware of linking to any Web page such as this, you should check each outbound link on your Web site.
Buying links for Search engine ranking
This where a Web site owner buys links simply to increase their ranking. This is also utilised to increase Page Rank. Google and other search engines still have a hard to discover this, but they're beginning to catch on to this technique. If Google is aware of the website, they can simply dismiss the Page Rank, so that they can not pass Page Rank on.
Machine Generated Web sites
This is a website that generates hundreds of web pages which are basically the exact same page repeated hundreds or thousands of times, but with a couple of unique lines of text and exceptional title. Quite often, search engines can not spot this, if done correctly by the website owner. But if a spider does not spot your machine created Web pages, a competitor might find it and report your internet site.
Things to do after you're Spam clean?
As soon as you've cleaned up your Web site, you can try contacting Google by seeing http://www.google.com/contact/. Inform them that you made a mistake and will not do it again. Even should you contact Google, they probably won't allow your Web site back and if you by chance get back , you better keep your site squeaky clean since I doubt you'll get other opportunity.
If you can not get in touch with Google, I recommend that you wait for a month or two after Google's spider visits your Web site and see if you get your standing or at least where it is possible to see that your ranking is going up in the search results. During this time you ought not alter your Web site around much and give the search engines time to spider your Web site.
I truly don't think that lots of sites have dropped since Google is penalizing them. Rather, I believe Google has changed the variables or adds more weight to a factor(s) that they use to rank sites in the search results. All search engines make periodic changes to the way they rank Web sites in the search results.
