Hope I am posting in the right area, have viewed webamsterworld many times, but this is the first post!
anyway, a client has been informed by a SEO company he uses that because a few months ago his site was hacked into that he could now be blacklisted by google.
I have never heard of this and after looking around WebmasterWorld the closest i have come across is the editing of the robots.txt file and then registering the url to be removed at google, I think that is how it works.
well the site in questions is still listed by google so I can't se that being the issue, so does anyone know what the SEO company could be talking about.
Unfortuantely I was passed this information by the site owner and not directly from the SEO company so it may have lost something on the way as the site owner is not exaclty the most computer literate.
for this reason the client is also worried about being ripped off by the SEO company, so is he being told porkies, or should he belive them?
