Am I Banned from Google?
It’s every SEO’s worst nightmare. Being banned from Google means a huge loss in internet search engine referral traffic. After all Google owns around 75% of all search engine traffic. With Bing and Yahoo snagging just a small piece of the pie.
So how do you tell if Google has banned you or not? Well it’s as simple as going to Google and typing in site:yourdomain.com the site: search modifier will show you all pages indexed by Google for that particular domain. If no pages are listed, then it’s possible you have been banned. (assuming you used to be listed there) Here is a link and and example of use of the site: modifier for beer.com site:beer.com
Hope that helps, and check out our article in the future… “What to do when Google bans you“.
