De-indexed by Google – The worst possible smack, worse than PR 0

I read that a few bloggers have their sites de-indexed from Google’s index. It is like the ultimate burial. With PR 0, you are sort of left to die without foods. However, crumbs will still come by.

With de-index, you are like killed and buried.

So, how do you know if your site has been de-indexed? Just type in your full url and do a Google search. If you get nothing, i.e. no results found, you know you are dead.

Of course, there is always Yahoo and MSN and a host of other search engines which will drive organic traffic to you. But many paid post companies do not want blogs that are not indexed by Google.

When you start a new blog, your blog is not index. Sometimes, it takes just a day to get your site indexed. Sometimes, it takes a longer time. To make it faster, you can ask your friends to link your new blog from their blogs. Getting a link from a blog post is better than getting a link on a sidebar.

After a while, your blog will be in Google’s index.

And the opposite can happen too. One day, Google found out that your site is too crappy and not worth’s anybody’s time and wham, they kill you.

If that site is your one and only blood, sweat and tears, you may want to find out how to rectify it. Have you done anything naughty like stuffing it with all kinds of craps? Have you been stuffing things against Google Webmasters policies? If you clear all those, you can submit your site for reinclusion. Read how I got my Google pagerank back. It works almost the same way.

Or if that’s not an important site, you can always move on.

I seem to know a lot eh? Heh, talking from experience. I learn a new thing each time I get a smack. That’s why there is a Chinese saying, ‘ai meh kah eh bak chiew kim’ or ‘need to get scold to get the eyes widen’.

Moral of the story – Dun farkit with Google. They will keep strangling you forever.

    I erased all old Izea postings. Got reindexed and my traffic has jumped 20%’ish. PayPerPost will kill your blog pure and simple. Then they’ll from time to time offer $6 opps.

    My blog already 1 and half month old. At the moment it is already indexed by google and MSN but not yahoo. Why? Do we need resubmit or add URL to the search engine each time we update our blog? Thanks…

    Wow. With Google answering more search queries than Microsoft and Yahoo put together, this is a killer blow. Thanks goodness this didn’t happen to me. Perhaps the sites were selling text links?

    I went through this from Dec. 10-28. Though when I was reindexed my daily traffic from G went up 20%.

    A couple of days ago I registered the domains and and set up a website for which was indexed by Google pretty fast. Today I checked and the site has been de-indexed by Google. First thought was how childish of Google, suppressing all criticism of its products (Google Wave in this case). See for an example of this bullying, though that particular site is not de-indexed by Google. Apparently they won’t de-index your site if it becomes popular, since that would of course expose Google for what it actually is.

    But then I thought you’d expect things like this when a search engine becomes a defacto monopoly, AND when in addition it owns multiple other internet-based products besides its’ search engine operations. Google obviously has a vested interest to up/down index or even de-index certain sites.

    It’s like asking a BMW representative to give you an unbiased review of all car brands. Which wouldn’t be so bad unless most people are forced (in one way or another) to go to that same guy for that independent assessment. It then becomes like “democratic elections” in China, where the Communist Party advises you that your best bet is to vote for its favorite Communist Party candidate.

    Maybe someday this malarkey will be looked upon and regulated by the powers that be.
