This post of mine is a complete information package about the Google Blacklist. I had tried my best to write simple on this complicated topic. After this post you surely would be able to find out the cause of Blacklisting, the confirmation tests for it and the ways to get out of it.
When we create a new website and spend hours designing it; we expect to get to the peak of search engine results. But to make this happen quickly we sometimes mistakenly adopt the ill methods that can make the situation worse for the growth of our website. Your any illegal method to popularize your web page can empower the search engines to ‘Blacklist’ your website.
‘Blacklist’ means that the search engine portals will not scroll your websites for search results; it means that your website will never be visible in the search results; it means that your website is officially dead. Horrifying? It is the worst dream of any web developer but the more perturbing part of this dream is that you will never get any notification if you are in the Blacklist.
Now you surely will be raising a lot of questions like; what are the ill factors that can dump any website into the Blacklist? How can I check whether I am on that list or not? I am in the blacklist :( what now?
Let’s discuss your every question sequentially to clarify your every doubt. The below discussed topics are a ‘must to have’ knowledge packs for every web developer.
What are the ill factors that can dump any website into the Blacklist?
It is really an important and general question raised by every website developer. When we talk about ‘Blacklist’; we are actually talking about the punishment given to a web developer by the search engine portals for using unfair means to head over a spotlight on its web work. These unfair means can be:
- Hiding the links and texts- sometime we mistakenly chose the color of any URL or content just the same as that of the background; this approximately hides that content from the user. Some websites deliberately use this technique to make fools of the users.
- Excess use of Ctrl C + Ctrl V- content is the prime constituent of any website. To get high on the search result we sometime copy the content of popular websites. This plagiarism can easily detect by Google and hence you could be a member of ‘Blacklist’.
- Illegal Material- use of illegal materials like unauthorized pornography, banking and networking can put the Black cap on your website. So never try these activities even once as Google is a way more sensitive than your imagination to this type of content.
How can I check whether I am in the Blacklist or not?
