Hi everyone. I'm an affiliate for several highly ranked weight loss products on clickbank, and all of them have gotten "slapped" by Google anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months ago.

However, in the past week, I've seen 3 of them magically reappear in the content network.

Is it possible to get unslapped without making any changes to your landing page, as these sites haven't made any changes at all to their landing pages.

I would like to promote them again, but obviously want to be careful.

Any information regarding an "unslap" like this would be much appreciated.

What do you mean by slapped? They had their QS lowered to 1? Or they just stopped getting impressions?

I have recovered from the former (which is what I call a slap), but only heard one case of someone recovering from the latter (which I call a ban). When we got slapped I talked to the Google rep, and they told us what we needed to fix. Once that was done they (much to my surprise) restored the account to normal. What fixed it for us was changes on the backend (specifically, where the lead information was processed after they filled out the form), so maybe the landing page look the same but something in the background got changed?
