    What to Do if Your Site Has a Penalty or Ban

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    You’ve spent months, maybe years, building your site and promoting it; you’ve burned through hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars on advertising, manpower, and services, fighting to gain that number one spot on the search engines. Then you wake up one morning to find your site is no longer in the top spot...or even the first ten pages. Could your site be penalized, or, even worse, banned? This article can help you decide if it has been, and what you can do about it.

    I would like to start off by saying that if your site has fallen in rankings, or has disappeared altogether, the vast majority of the time it is for technical reasons; i.e., you or your SEO "expert" has screwed something up. So before you run off and start harassing the folks at Yahoo, Google, MSN, and so forth, be sure to go through this list of possibilities. It could save you a lot of time and grief, and get you back in a favorable position.
