Google Ban

joshac asked 1 year ago
Can a subpage get banned by Google but not the domain?

It’s just I was ranking well for a sub page on a particular Google search and today that ranking has gone from #4 to gone… Funny thing is my home page is still ranked for that search but at like #15 while before it had the sub page then the home page in the Google indented type result.

if you search for site:yoursite.com
is that subpage still listed?
than its not banned, but penalized

It does show in site:

So its been penalized, I wonder why that page was, only thing I can think of is that it has that pokerfreerolls monitor script on it…

Hi,

If you figure this out please let me know – cannot see why you should get penalized for using our script…..

If the page does have a penalty it could be because of some bad links pointing to it or something your doing wrong, give it a week or so and see if it returns before making changes.

I did a copyscape and found some dodgy search engine had ripped some of the pages text and linked to me… So i have edited the copied text and will see if that was the problem….

Interesting …
Of course we’ll never know for sure because your changes might simply be better than the old copy …

But if that dodgy directory link was the case then it really does fly in the face of everything that Google outlines regarding links TO YOUR site not being able to negatively impact …

Let us know how that works out Joshac

Ahh the sub page is back on the first page of Google…. so I believe it was the duplicate content from that dodgy search engine…
