Why has your website been dropped from Google?
Has your web site been dropped from Google and you don't
know why? There are a number of factors that can get your
web site banned on Google. In this article, we'll tell you
why your web site can be banned from Google and what you can
do to get listed on Google.
Reasons why Google drops web sites from its index
The most common reason why web sites are removed from Google's
index is that these web sites use shady tricks to get higher
search engine rankings.
If you use cloaking, hidden text, doorway pages or any other
technique that's only for tricking search engines then you
can be sure that your web site will be banned as soon as Google
finds out. Don't try to cheat Google, it will backfire on
Even if you don't use shady tricks to optimize your web site,
your site might be removed from Google's index if your web
site was down when Google tried to index it.
If you have a new web site, or if you have made major changes
on your site, your web site might be put into Google's
sandbox. You then just have to wait until it comes out
of the sandbox.
How to get listed in Google
1. Optimize your web page content
Google can only rank your web site highly for your keyword
if it can find out what your web site is all about. To tell
Google what your web site is about, you have to optimize
your web pages for Google.
2. Get good incoming links
Google heavily relies on links to determine the ranking of
web pages. The more web sites link to your site, the better
your rankings. Make sure that the web sites that link to your
site are related to your web site and that the links to your
web site contain text that is related to your site.
You can use tools like ARELIS
and IBP's Link
Popularity Improver to get more links to your web site.
3. Avoid dirty tricks
Only use ethical
search engine optimization methods to optimize your web
pages. Using shady tricks will get you banned sooner or later.
If you used cloaking, doorway pages or hidden text on your
web pages before, rebuild your web pages with the ethical
methods described above and send a re-inclusion request to
Tell Google that you have cleaned up your page and that you
don't use these unethical tricks anymore.
Getting listed on Google is possible. Just play by the rules
and make it easy for Google to index your site by optimizing
your web page content and by getting good incoming links.
