I've been banned by Google. What can I do?

First, find out what you did to get banned.

Most people say, "I don't know what I did wrong." But in almost every case I've found that the guilty party does have a pretty good idea. You tried to get away with something. What was it?

  • Were you spamming with keyword after keyword?

  • Were you guilty of "cloaking" . . . directing different visitors to different pages?

  • Did you use very small or invisible text?

    Correct everything you think you might have been guilty of. Remember, Google's rules say that you should not do anything just to try to get a higher ranking.

    An easy way to think about what you might have done wrong is to read your page and think, "Would I have done this if I wasn't trying to get a high ranking?"

Here is the official Google advice to one Web site owner:

Your page was manually removed from our index, because it did not conform with the quality standards necessary to assign accurate PageRank. We will not comment on the individual reasons a page was removed and we do not offer an exhaustive list of practices that can cause removal. However, certain actions such as cloaking, writing text that can be seen by search engines but not by users, or setting up pages/links with the sole purpose of fooling search engines may result in permanent removal from our index. If you think your site may fall into this category, you might try 'cleaning up' the page and sending a re-inclusion request to:

We do not make any guarantees about if or when we will re-include your site.

You may need to start over.

Correct all of your past sins and then send an email to Google basically saying that you have corrected your "sins" and that you want to be forgiven and have your site reinstated.

Then you wait. You may have to wait for several months. Google doesn't get in any hurry. I guess that's part of your punishment. You may NEVER get our site reinstated.

What you may want to do is to scrap everything. Select a new domain name and start over. Many times you can get a totally new site listed and the PageRank up to PR=4 or PR=5 quicker that you can wait to get your old site back up and running.
