7 Reasons Why Your Website Will Be Banned By Search Engines (google) by Bloggingscope: 10:23pm On Dec 01

Research shows that 60% of websites get most of their traffic from search engines and if luckily you are part of those 60% or you want to be, do you know how devastating it will be if you no longer get organic traffic from search engines? There are thousands of websites out there doing the same thing you do so search engines (google) won’t hesitate to churn you out if you don’t follow their guidelines.

Sadly, if you get banned once it is not easy to get things back to normal after the ban so you have to be very careful with what you do if you don’t want to go back to square 1, even if they unban you it will be hard for you to pull things back especially if you have many contents.

Worst of it all is when they ban you and you don’t even know if you are banned or not! To check if you have been banned simply go to google and type site:yourdomainname.com (replace your domain name with yourdomainname) , if your pages are displayed good but if none of your pages are in there then.....

…………. There are two things involved, it is either your website is not indexed yet or you are completely banned, we wrote a guide on “why your website is not showing up on Google here” so we won’t want to waste time on that here, we gave guide on how to make google index your site faster there.

So even if your website is not new and your website still does not display on google then you need to read that and even if your website got indexed and you later discovered they were removed you still need to read that.

If after following those steps your website still did not get indexed then you need to know why your website was banned by google first before you proceed to check how you can solve it and get everything back after you are banned which I will explain further just keep reading, if you unban it without knowing the reason(s) you were banned, you will still get banned again



#1. Black hat seo: What is black hat seo? Let’s not waste time on this, I already wrote a guide on the “meaning, differences and techniques of white hat, grey hat and black hat seo here”.

Black hat seo is one damn thing that can get you banned by search engines, gone are the days when you can do some sort of black hat seo and go scot-free. Nowadays there are algorithms that will easily track you down like Google panda, penguin etc.

2.Poor uptime: The funniest thing about poor uptime is that it discourage your audience, discourage you the webmaster and also discourage search engines.

Everyone is losing here unlike black hat seo which you will gain something at least before you get caught, uptime is really annoying and that is why you need to be careful when choosing a hosting registrar for your website.

When a website goes down for many weeks it tells search engines that the website is no longer in existent that they should remove it from their index, though if you notice it takes search engines months to remove all your pages as they think you may still be back but who knows? your case may be different.

Even if all your pages are not deleted instantly, your website will start loosing its rank little by little as no search engine want to direct their pages to a non-existing website.

3.Spam and paid backlinks: Unlike before, search engines can track paid backlinks and devalue those links, dropping backlinks on spam websites seems not to be working nowadays and it can even get your website blacklisted and banned.

You should be careful where you get your link from and to even crown this all google gave a way to disavow links that can harm our website so there is no excuse for us anymore ( Can you now see that link building is fast going into extinction?).

Nevertheless you can still build links just trust your sources and most time do it in a very orderly manner.

4. BackLink velocity and repetitive anchor text:
Recently when I discovered that repetitive anchor text could get a website banned and damage seo ranking, I was shocked.

Indeed this is another way Google trap paid and automated links, they have the same anchor text and the velocity of the link is very high like a 2 weeks website getting thousands of backlink with the same anchor text look weird. Doing this will not only devalue your seo rank but may get your website blacklisted and banned

#5. Plagiarized articles or images: This is the fastest way to get banned by google, just duplicate content without the owner’s consent, the person file a dmca report or report you to google directly then ban follows.

Nowadays a common plagiarized image can get you banned if you are not careful with them.

#6.Robot.txt Errors: Many don’t even know the meaning of robots.txt, by defaults wordpress have them. Robots.txt contains the pages your website should not index and most times your sitemap is also included here with your wp-admin and that is exactly why your dashboard (backend) don’t get indexed. <strong>An example of a robots.txt page is bloggingscope.com/robots/txt.

There you will see disallow, allow and sitemaps. If your post and pages are included it is better you remove them else they will never get indexed
Allowing important pages on your robots.txt file will easily tell search engines never to index them


#7. 301 permanent Redirection for adverts: Search engines expect you to do a 301 permanent redirect to another domain name when you move to another domain name so setting useless permanent redirect to another domain name often could easily tell search engines that you have parked and they should delete the old domain name and also delete all your indexed pages, avoid useless redirects for advert purpose as there are other ways to make money without doing that, I wonder how such website gain audience self, Immediately I see such website I press the red button.

5 more tips at: https://www.bloggingscope.com/why-website-banned-search-engine-google/

SO how exactly then can I get my website back after ban?

1.If it is a life ban, the easiest solution is to abandon the domain name for a new one

2. Another option is to mail them, File a re-consideration request here

Alternatively, You can also send a message here too.

Any option you choose to use, You have to plead the best way you can and promise them that such won't again, write a lengthy letter please and don’t make the mistake of blaming them. State your offence and don’t even think of lying please as they know what they banned you for.

Am not sure if you will get a reply but they may act on it, if they do you will notice some changes in few weeks.

You can also tweet this man, @brianwhite a google agent on webspam just to inform him that you get ban and ask him for help

Google doesn't deindex shittt...

So imagine BMW commits a crime...

And Google de-indexes them.

If you as a user wants to get more information as regards BMW and nothing shows up, what happens?

You switch to another search Engine...

You think Google wants that?

This was what John Muller explained during our meeting with him.

Google only reduces page relevance when it comes to generic search queries.

Let's see your Search Title... Looks like poo

When it comes to blogging, you are a kid and knows nothing...

Probably you wanna use it as a hustle. I suggest you try something else.

Nice post, the most important one you didn't mention is do not use nulled theme or plugin..

If you use them your website would be hacked meaning the hacker would place a file on the sites.. .e. g clone websites etc..

When google notice this.. They will label your website dangerous to visit from the search

I hope you have noticed this before.
If your you see files you didn't put on your domain two to 3 different times..

Google will de-index you soon or later no matter what..

Always use Google console to alert and security

Stay away from nulled themes plugins etc..

Although it is possible to come up with a Unique content on the entertainment niche but i think its rare..
Most of 'em are used to Copy and Pasting which is why they gets penalized


As regards the ban, what do you mean by partial ban and full ban grin grin

That is true bro! but to candid, compared to the standard of living in Nigeria those themes and plugins are expensive.

I don't encourage nulled themes or plugins though as a corrupt one will surely damage ones blog

It affects seo ranking too and one may even be banned for piracy
