As a website, owner there is every chance of getting your site excluded from Google’s index, even when you are not looking for any trouble. Google is largely considered kind and it does not exclude any company for its pleasure. Mostly, Google excludes sites that violate its rules and regulations in some way or the other.
When you own a website or blog, being listed in Google's search results should be one of your highest priorities. But what should you do if your site gets banned by Google in some way? In such instances, your site will undoubtedly suffer a huge loss of traffic, as it does not show in the Google search results.
Reinstating your site or getting it "unbanned" is a long and arduous process. Most of the time Google will not tell you the reasons for their banning decision, which makes the process even more difficult.
There are though, some reasons which outnumber any others, which includes: spamming, using too many keywords, making different owned URLs redirect to one another, insertion of improper robots.txt file, duplicating pages/content, linking to bad sites such as gambling and adult sites, etc. There are various other reasons for a Google ban. But whatever the reason may be for any 'site banning' you have to take steps to get it unbanned as quickly as possible.
The Following Tips Will Eventually Get You Back In Google's Search Results:
Send A Request To Google
The first step you should take is to send a request to Google for reconsidering your site’s ban. You'll come to know that your website has been banned when it does not show any Google page rank. Double check this fact by entering your site name in Google search. If there are no results then surely your site has been banned. After being sure of this banning you should quickly send a request to Google for reconsideration.
Remember, the request you are sending will be received and read by a professional at Google. Therefore, try to be polite and provide various details about your website. Giving too much information is better in this respect. Being polite and nice is a good idea in this situation.
Detail Your Domain Information
Tell Google about your website’s history and the rules that you feel have been broken. If you have suffered due to spam clicks and bots, try to gather evidence supporting that fact, and write about it to Google. Such details show that you are serious about the problem and are looking to take immediate steps.
Write everything one would want to know about yourself and your website. Try to judge your website and its flaws that might have earned this banning. Include your findings in the email while sending the reconsideration request.
Take Step And Suggest Your StanceWhen you send your request to Google try to make sure there are mentions of steps you have already taken to fix the problem(s). Provide details of the problem and your URL. This will allow Google experts to view the changes that have thus far been brought about.
Suppose your site has been banned due to bad links, try to remove each of these links as quickly as possible. Then prove the up-gradation by sending the appropriate evidence. Such detailed information is required by Google to provide a positive feedback for your reconsideration request.
But, before sending the request, make sure there is nothing on your website that will annoy Google professionals.
Sending The Request
Now that you are ready to send the request, login to your Google webmaster account and verify your website. There is a special section in Google for Reconsideration where you can post your request.
It will generally take up-to a few weeks for a Google professional to get back with an answer. So wait patiently.
In the mean time, you could carry on with the task of trying to remove any annoying elements (from Google’s point of view) on your website.
If you get no answer within a couple of weeks, you can send a gentle reminder email asking about the progress of your request. But do not send follow ups everyday, as that would irritate Google representatives.
By following these steps you should fix the situation of being banned from Google index, and how to avoid any possible future bans.
