Is your site banned from Google index?

March 15, 2006 by  

Before you complaint about why Google ban your site from its index, you might want to check if you’ve done something that has triggered the banning in the first place.

One mistake that is frequently committed by webmasters is to include ‘hidden text’, often achieved using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), or normal HTML, on the website to trick the search engine.

As Matt Cutts, a Google engineer writes on his blog, search engine spamming such as using hidden text, hidden links, scamming links, cloaking, sneaky redirects are things that can cause your site to be banned, not what you write about.

Fortunately, if you are banned from Google, you can still request for a reinclusion but before you do that make sure to clean up your site.
