Common Reasons Why Google Bans Websites

Why does Google ban websites from its search engine results? It can be quite a shock to see your high page rank site suddenly disappear from Google. Getting banned from Google can severely affect your site traffic and advertising earnings. Listed below are some common reasons google may ban your site –

  1. Duplicate Content
  2. Cloaking
  3. Hidden text or hidden links   Keyword stuffing
  4. Linking to bad neighborhoods
  5. Buying links for Search engine ranking
  6. Machine Generated Web sites

So keep in mind that you may not be doing any of these errors unknowingly on your part. One common error is when you rename and upload fresh pages, they may duplicate the content of the older page and may seem to Google as duplicating content. You may unknowingly be linking to sites which have tried to trick google and if google bans them, it might ban you too. So track your links and keep them fresh. Too muck keyword stuffing to drive ads or traffic may get penalized, so keep it within limits. Never hide text with the same colour as the background, Google is too smart for that.

Google brings a lot of traffic to any site and getting blocked by Google is a bad move as it is difficult to get back in!
