Google Search result has stopped displaying my website/blog [Cause & Solution]

Problem:

My website/blog had a good visit per day and it was also ranking good on Alexa. However, recently the per day visit has dropped drastically. And, alexa ranking is also dropping gradually day by day.

Cause:

There are many reasons for poor ranking in google search result. Some of them are:-

– Navigation problem
– Duplicate content
– Offline for long time
– Malware links
– Site redesign
– Loss of backlinks
– Lack of fresh contents
– Slow site

First of all, you need to know what has actually happened to your website.

1. Deindexed – When your domain is completely removed from Google. Also known as Banned.

2. Penalized – When your domain or page still exists but none of your pages can be found through very direct search queries. This penalty can be automatic through the Google algorithm or manually applied by a Google Quality Engineer.

3. Sunk – Your domain or page wasn’t Deindexed or Penalized, but the traffic you were getting from Google suddenly drops dramatically. Also known as Sent To Hell and Sandboxed.

Solution:

The following link contains detailed information on how you can find out what has happened to your website (Deindexed, Penalized, or Sunk) and possible solution for it.

What To Do When Your Site Drops In The Google Search Results

    Interesting articles. Google shouldn’t have dropped your site results in the first place. It’s one of the best Magento sources on the net. Did you find out why your rankings dropped – and if so – what have you done to fix it?

  • The site results are better now. I think Google updated their algorithm.

    Good to hear! sometimes you can’t do much about it I’m afraid, except hoping the algorithm likes your site again after the next update.
