Message Too Old, No Replies

Banned or just ignored?

My client's site is no longer loved by G

Here I am again, tin-cup in hand, asking for guidance and advice.

My new client asked me to clean up the top-tier pages of their 3 year old site (just enough to get them to validate for XHTML well-formedness).

within 72 hours, G's count of "pages from the site www.examplesite.com" went from 11 to 41. That's good. Maybe.

one week ago, google showed:

Show Google's cache of www.examplesite.com
Find web pages that are similar to www.examplesite.com
Find web pages that link to www.examplesite.com
Find web pages from the site www.examplesite.com
Find web pages that contain the term "www.examplesite.com"

today G shows only:

Sorry, no information is available for the URL www.examplesite.com

If the URL is valid, try visiting that web page by clicking on the following link: www.examplesite.com
Find web pages from the site www.examplesite.com
Find web pages that contain the term "www.examplesite.com"

A search on G for the client's two-word name, which is NOT the domain name, still shows their index page as #1 on page 1 of the results out fo 1,000,000+. These are not their keywords, but they were never optimized for keywords.

Their PR still shows.


Have they been hit with a penalty?

This is a bit of conjecture on my part, but I have seen a different message than that for banned sites. The banned site message does not include a 'you can link by clicking here'

There are many reasons a site can be removed.

The server may have been down at the time of the spidering.

You may have done a lookup on one of Google's mystery DC's

Someone at the plex spilled their beans on the keybaord again.

Check that there is nothing physical on your end that may be preventing indexing:

Improper htaccess
robots.txt etc

Good luck

Thanks CainIV,

Is this likely to be self-correcting? I can't see anything on the client's end that might cause the issue.
