my home page has been banned under one keyword chemtx 10/14/11 7:16 AM
Hello!

My website www.chem-tex.com seems to be banned under "carpet cleaning equipment" keyword. I haven't changed my website for the past 3 months and its position was stable (second-third pages), however, 2 days ago it disappeared from search results under "carpet cleaning equipment" keyword. I can not find it anywhere.
I understand if I loose 2 or 5 pages of rating over night when the popularity of my website goes down (for example), but I have problem with just one (main) keyword. Everything else is the same. Only my home page and only under "carpet cleaning equipment" keyword has been affected.
I think my home page has been banned under "carpet cleaning equipment" keyword and I am not sure why.

Please, if you guys have any ideas of what's happening, I would really appreciate any advice.

Thank you!

Best Regards,
www.chem-tex.com

Your site appears on page 2 of the search results for me.  I wouldn't say it's banned at all.

Thank you for your respond.

2 page under "carpet cleaning equipment" keyword? that is strange, because I have checked it on 3 different PC's and my sell phone, couldn't find my website anywhere.

I can only see it in local directories, but not in organic search results.

Make sure you're either not logged in to Google or that you have disabled Web search history.

I have had the very same thing happen!  I noticed overnight my traffic dropped to 1/4 of what it was the day before.  I did a bit of searching and found my site: aglassmenagerie.net was no longer listed for the keyword "stained glass windows".  It had been doing better and better over time and was up to page 2 or 3 on search and now it doesn't exist.  All my other keywords are remaining the same:  stained glass stepping stones page 1 #1, stained glass pet portraits page 1 #2, stained glass cabinet windows page 1 #5.  

Is my site banned for that keyword now?  How can I know and what can I do?

Pam, you should post your own thread to keep the poster's site on discussion.  However, I have looked at your site.  Here's what I need you to do:  Remove each and every 'link exchange' banner, text, et al from your site.  Link exchanges are toast.  Traffic exchanges are toast.  Get all of them off of there.  You have quite a few.  If you have any questions, please post your own thread. We'll be happy to help.

I show you as gone from that keyword.  I'm using  http://searchenginereports.net/ and see you as 13 on Bing and nuked from Google.

I did another post but I can't find it.  How are these posts listed?  I am in tears now about being nuked and now I can't find my post.  Pam

OK, so I did another post.  Maybe that will show up.  Pam
