    [Y]our page may have been manually removed from our index if it didn’t conform with the quality standards necessary to assign accurate PageRank. We won’t comment on the individual reasons a page was removed, and we don’t offer an exhaustive list of practices that can cause removal. However, certain actions such as cloaking…or setting up pages/links with the sole purpose of fooling search engines may result in permanent removal from our index. You may want to review our Quality Guidelines for more guidance. If you think your site may fall into this category, you might try “cleaning up” the page and contacting us with a re-inclusion request. We don’t make any guarantees about if or when we’ll re-include your site. (emphasis added). From what I’ve read elsewhere on the net, once you’re pulled from the index it’s rather difficult to get re-included. However, it doesn’t appear to be a permanent ban, necessarily.

    Websites can be reinstated. In some cases, a friendly call to Google does the trick. Otherwise, Google’s algorithms are generally forgiving, but it can take months to get fully indexed again. Eric.

    Search King rides again.

  4. On the flip side of this coin are websites that do not violate Goog TOS or guidelines yet get yanked way down by an algorithm tweak.

    When a site suddenly loses 60% or 70% of the traffic it had earned by merit, the Google Justice System has earned a few demerits.

  5. here you can know the system of Pagerank.

    This is written in Japanese, but it’s worthwhile to read through auto translate service like
