Is your blog Banned by Google ?. Don’t worry.Stories of iAcquire, J C Pennies and their likes make us aware of the reality that failing out of Google’s grace is not that difficult. Sorry, just kidding. Now, as Panda and Penguin are out of the zoo, it is quite clear that your website is largely vulnerable to their malicious attack. Since they are animals and follow their animal instincts (here I mean the complex codes and all that), you should not spare any effort as to safeguard the interest of your website. But sometimes, even when you are working with the best of intension, you may find your website gets banned by Google for no such apparent reasons. Or on one fine morning you got a mail from Google that bears that following words “your website is violating certain Google’s guidelines”. Now do not feel despondent, as there are still some ways available to drive traffic to your website. However, scenarios like this teach us a very important lesson in life – “Do not put all your Eggs in one basket”.
Here we are going to give you some tips on what to do when you see your blog is Banned by Google :
Send a Reconsideration Request:
I know how important it is for a website to have prominent position in the SERP, as it will drive hordes of traffic to it. Moreover, there is no such harm in getting traffic from Google as long as you are not paying for it. So, there is no harm in sending a reconsideration request after making some quick fixes, just to check whether it is a manual penalty or another case of getting caught in algo shuffle. If you get a response like this – “No Manual action is found”, you are good. You need to do some basic things – like removing crap inbound links, making incoming anchors look natural, reducing keywords density, scraping out all the crap content etc and then wait for another algo shuffle. Hopefully your website will be back in the track.
Think like you are paying for Each Visit:
Unless you are serious about the traffic you are getting for free, you will never be able to see a steady increase in the number of queries. Assume that you are paying 1$ for each visit and then try to calculate how much you have spent on traffic and then compare it with the number of business queries. Once you start judging things in the light of profit and loss, you will try your best to find out new opportunities. Try to locate the missing opportunities and you find loads of loopholes in your website. What I believe is that the main objective of a website is not to drive traffic rather offering a nice users’ experience to visitors.
Buysellads.com and their likes can help you draw targeted traffic to your website and that too without burning a big hole in your pocket. Create a list of websites that you feel your targeted visitors are most likely to visit and then communicate with their webmasters to get your ads placed on their websites. It will help you get some visitors even when other sources of traffic dry up.
Social media is a great marketing tool to generate traffic but what I most hate about social media is that there is no way you can control it. Once you run a campaign, it is very hard to control it. But what is interesting about social media is that search engines have started taking cue from social media and that means, better presence in social media sites will have some SEO benefits. Apart from these SEO benefits, we can safely assume that if you can market your products shrewdly, your website will be flooded with traffic coming from social media sites. So, do not ignore the importance of social media promotion.
