Can anybody please let me know if Google can block any IP and if so why will it do that?
The site about which I am speaking does not have any spam techniques. It is simple and plain html site.
I want to know more about IP blocking by Google. Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.
Google has not been known to "ban" by IP address, as they recognize that on some web servers, multiple web sites exist on a "shared" IP address.
Inktomi on the other hand.......
I know people that have taken the same banned domain - changed nothing but the links (to now refer to non banned urls) - and get back in google.
Changing your IP isn't going to help - changing your domain may help (depending on why you were banned). If you were hit by a florida filter - it most likely will not help.

Could some body give me a quick intro about the Florida filter? ... only thing I know is that you use to name those filters as hurricanes :-) I suppose because the damage is to hard :-D .. but I'd like to know what exactly the filter means ..
Methinks that the google-watch-watch reply is a little naive. (Not wrong, just a little naive. Of course, I believe that google-watch is duplicitous.)
Google may be the "will of the people"--but as I learned in my time as a DC pollster, numbers can be manipulated. As long as someone or some company has control of the algo, then it's open to abuse, mistakes, what-have-you. I'm not saying that's what's happening, I'm just saying it's possible.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I am now consulting for a comany that has seen its ranking for a two-word listing drop from forty-something to oblivion.
My humble 2 cents.
Questions? Flames? Praise? Let me have 'em.
Hope that helps,
