1. Will email to google help? Also the client is advertising on google, I have heard that it helps calling people at google and requesting them to remove you from "BLACK/BLOCK" list.
2. Would changing the domain name help? and how long would it usually take to get listed if i am a new domain? I am not sure how attached the cient is to the domain name but if thats easier than getting out of google blocked list, that is an option.
3.Do my rates go up? ;)
Any help would be great. Thanks
However, I would also make sure that you have in fact been penalised. It could be just that the competition is fierce and the existing SEO is rubbish.
webmaster-AT-google.com¦subject=reinclusion request is as good an address¦subject as any.
Keep emails VERY CLEAR AND CONCISE. NO WAFFLE.
That's me - others may have differing opinions.
In all such situations, put yourself in the position of the Google tech reading the email. You're busy so you don't want to have to re-read emails, etc so it must be clear and simple. Stating that there were faults on the site but that they have been fixed is just that - clear and simple. If you start listing those faults you are adding unnecessary complexity (IMHO).
It is worth stating that taken over site administration but don't make a big deal of it.
