I found 302 redirects pointing to my website from other domain names, now I have removed successfully all the 302 redirects which was redirecting to my site.

Now my question is how do i please google that my site has not got any 302 redirects.

Please clarify.

Don't change a thing.

I hope for you they don't ressucitate these things into the cache as they do occasionally, that might cause your nightmare to return.

Also, beware of dodgy directories that scrape DMOZ data automatically, and replace all the nice html links for deadly 302 script links. Not much that can be done against these, it's automated.

The only way would be to ask DMOZ itself to remove the good, valuable link they have to your site. Lord knows how long this might take. I recall from my own editing days that DMOZ considers it their right to list your site, and that you have no right to require being de-listed.

I don't suggest you do this or that DMOZ changes their policies, I'm only pointing out how absurd the situation has become when begging DMOZ to remove your site from their listing has become something a rational websmaster who values his/her website might want to consider. It's not DMOZ's fault, it's just that their data is being exploited with sinister intents by a tiny minority of unscrupulous webmasters.

And also pointing out that while you might have some control or influence some of these links to your site, some of them are cold, automated and completely deaf.

You just have to wait for Google to fix this bug.

rama: It surely will take some time until you'll regain your former position. Maybe even three months. Don't loose patience. Use the time to check your site for duplicate content and other issues. And use the time to fill your site with new content. It'll be worth it.

Thanks helleborine and Taps.

If I search for domain name of my website in Google directory its says result does not match any documents. Is still google using DMOZ coz in DMOZ my site link is present.

At present I am not changing any pages in my website.

How about building sitemap from google sitemap will it help?

Wow, after reading this I decided to check on my poor site which had been highjacked by another site & trashed by google back in June '04. Looks like it is finally coming back ...returning title/snippet instead of just url when I do a domain search.
-------background in case anyones interested.-----

1-Site was PR7 before being jacked. Then trashed to PR0 & out of index by google.

2-After reading about 302 problem here this spring, did an allinurl: search of index page & found offending site taking my place.

3-eMailed Google & asked them to look at the offending site. (basically links, redirects, & adware -no content.) G never responded, but I noticed they dumped this highjacking site from their index about a week later.

4-used .htaccess to redirect domain.com to www.domain.com

5-checked for relative links. (none, always used absolute links)

6-never did any removal or reinclusion request. never changed index page content.

hope this gives hope or ideas to others in the same position.
