How to find out if site was banned by google ?

Lately lots of people keep searching for informations on how to find out if domain was banned by google, blog was banned in google or site was banned in search engine.
Usually the thing that happends is not a ban but the famous google sandbox.

For the starters – it is not easy to tell if the site was banned by google and how to deal with it.

If the blog/page is new then many things may occur.

Site may get indexed with 1 page and then deindexed the next day – thats usual google dance, doesnt mean sandbox nor ban in search engine.
If you enter google webmaster tools try to add your new/banned domain. The hints that may say the site is banned, not not indexed is when it shows:

Googlebot has successfully accessed your home page
No pages from your site are currently included in Google’s index. Indexing can take time. You may find it helpful to review our information for webmasters and webmaster guidelines.

Then you can submit the sitemap and get such text:

You have recently submitted one or more Sitemaps for this site. Processing Sitemaps may take some time. Check again later to see if pages from your Sitemaps are included in Google’s index.

If after verification blog or website is still no indexed by googlebot it means you are propably banned by google.

Other way of checking sandbox or ban is to look at site:yousite in google. If the main page of yours is not indexed, the domain is probably sandboxed.
Sam trick goes if you type as search command “yousite”. If it doesnt show up as first in serp that means you are probably banned or sandboxed in google.
try using webmaster tools and ask for reindexation.
Then you will get such info in messages:

We’ve received a request from a site owner to reconsider how we index the following site:
We’ll review the site. If we find that it’s no longer in violation of our Webmaster Guidelines, we’ll reconsider our indexing of the site. Please allow several weeks for the reconsideration request. We do review all requests, but unfortunately we can’t reply individually to each request.

That actualyl doesnt mean it were violating before, it just means they will reconsider it and from #1 they think it was spammy so got delated.

Here on simple video tutorial you can see how to ask for reindexation of site in google

And i really suggest you to not use any tools online that check if the site was banned. They dont work and the only thing they can bring is ask 3445435345 times for site:yoursite and make you really sandboxed in google.
here is what they answer [the obvious]:

The domain name has no PageRank value, it is LIKELY to be banned.
The domain name has no records with Google. It is either new or MAY BE banned.

Hope this explains how to determine if your site was banned in google.

Free Cloaking Script – A bit of Black Hat SEO

Okay people were writing to me saying there is not enough Black Hat tricks on site and too much usual White SEO.

That might be right, so lets fix it. And be sure – i have one bomb to come. Very big post on something i quit using but which generates loads of traffic.

Anyways for today i brang the cloaking script. But for starters lets explain a bit what is what.

Black Hat SEO –   techniques that are used in an unethical manner to get higher search rankings . This includes mainly breaking rules of search engines, make specialy converted websites without real informations but full of ads or make sites content in a different visual or non-visual way to search engine spiders and search engine users. And thats it more or less.

Cloaking – a website that returns altered webpages to search engines crawling the site. So a human reading the site would see different content or information than the search engine robot reading the site. Most of the time, cloaking is implemented in order to improve search engine ranking by misleading the search engine robot into thinking the content on the page is different than it really is.

All BH SEO masters do that because You can make easy cash fast. Real fast, real cash.

Okay so here is some free cloaking script on user agent. That means after checking the user agent of ‘person’ connecting to site, it moves him to either ‘real website’ or site full of ads or redirects to partners page.

I also have to say i am not author of it. Since its free and verified by me i decided i will share.

Quote
<?
error_reporting(0);
$clientip = $_SERVER[‘REMOTE_ADDR’];
// find out the domain:
$domain = $_SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’];
// find out the path to the current file:
$path = $_SERVER[‘SCRIPT_NAME’];
// put it all together:
$url = “http://” . $domain . $path;

$redirect = “http://www.YOURDOMAIN.com”;

$agent = “Rabbit Fire Storm”.strtolower($HTTP_USER_AGENT);

if(strpos($agent, “google”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “altavista”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “msn”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “slurp”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “lycos”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “teoma”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “yahoo”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “slurp”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “rss”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “scooter”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}
if(strpos($agent, “bot”) != “”){
$search = “1”;
}

if($search == “1”){
include(‘$url’);
} else{
header(“Location: $redirect”);
}

?>

Okay i need to say this is simple script. But pepople who seek for such scripts are usually not super-power coders [since then they wopuldnt need to seek for script]. So thats it. It has some leaks [needs maybe ip verification etc]. Also the list of robots is not fully up to date. You need to seek for newer ones all the time, since it changes.
