Four tips for asking Google to ban your Website

in Article/SEO by

Are you asking Google to penalize or ban your website? Perhaps it’s a simple question. There are many people complaining that their website have been banned by Google and they “have no idea why”. This is a very important thing to share about this situation.

Page Rank

Page Rank is Google’s way of giving a specific value to how popular your website is. It is based on the number of “votes” other websites cast for your website. A “vote” is simply when another website places a link on their website that is pointing to your website. Generally, the more “votes” or links you have pointing to your website, the higher your Page Rank (PR) will be. Page Rank is “1” of the many factors that Google takes into account when ranking websites.

Some webmasters will do anything ways to make a higher page rank for their website, even something wrong and cause their website to get banned by Google.

How to know if you have been banned by Google

You can check your website in the Google’s search result. First go to Google then enter your entire URL into Google’s search box. This website was in Google’s index at one time. If you search your website today, and Google says “Sorry, no information ia available for the URL…”, this means that the URL is no longer in Google’s database.

Here are four factors that can cause Google to ban your website:

1. Title Tag Stuffing

The title is what appears in the top left hand corner of your webpage. This is an example of Title Stuffing.

2. Meta tag Stuffing

Webmasters throw in thousands of the same exact keyword into their meta tags. For example, the following website is trying to rank well for “seo”.

<meta NAME="KEYWORDS" CONTENT="SEO, 
seo, Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, 
SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, seo, 
Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, 
seo, Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, 
SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, seo, 
Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, seo, Seo, SEO, 
seo, Seo">
</meta>

3. Alt Image Tag Spamming

This is another way that people will try to cram keywords into their website, allowing search engines to see their keywords, but not allowing visitors to notice any difference in their website.

Alt Image Tag Spamming

The following is a website that wanted to rank well for “seo”. What they’ve done is inserted a graphic. They’ve then added an alt image tag to the graphic. When a visitors visits the website, hovers their mouse over the graphic, a little popup will appear.

  1. Interesting article but you mention nothing but the ‘usual suspects’ when it comes to getting your site banned. I think it’s more complicated than this because one of my sites has been penalised and I’ve never done any of the above. And even if Google thought I did, my site has been redesigned at least twice, but still the penalty persists (after two reinclusion requests).

    Still, an interesting read.

  2. Nice tips but I think this about pagerank isn’t true. I mean you said it depends on how much different sites links to you. In fact its true but I think its only one of many parameters which affect on pagerank. There are a lot of sites which don’t have many incoming links but have fine pagerank. I think there are much more parameters and one of the most important (after incoming links) is how old website is. Also, please can you explain little bit more about “Title Tag Stuffing” I’m afraid that I didn’t understand. Did you mean that its wrong when you have a lot of keywords in page title?

  3. I agree some how to Steve, because the same has happened to me. My site was penalized and i changed it design and even brought some good back links from pr sites, forums & blogs but still after 3 months i can’t see my site indexed yet. aah and even i had 2 pr on it which changed to n/a in the previous updation.
    now i m just waiting for Google’s next step to my site…

    wish me luck 🙂

  4. I think you just mentioned common known facts. Some other thinks also important.If you create backlinks which are not related to content of your site google treat them negative SEO and can penalise your site.
