I had enough with waiting so I placed a nicely worded email on Google Webmaster tools explaining the issues with the domain/hosting in November (which caused shanemcdonald.com to banned or penalised on Google and I was no longer Google Listed for the terms I was famous for).
That was Thursday … this morning I saw that for searches like “Don’t Stop me Now Chords” I was back at #1.

Traffic is up about 300% today which is great. I am Google Listed again after all this time.

I am Glad its sorted!

So if anyone else has had problems like being penalised on Google or find yourself no longer google listed, fix the problem, check the Google Webmaster Guidelines, ensure all items are being followed on your site, and then request Re-inclusion via the Google Webmaster Tools.

Nest thing for the site is to start adding some new content and new pictures.



This is an old post regarding Google penalised pages and lack of Google Listed pages on my website. This content which was originally on my old shanemcdonald.org site and now resides here on shanemcdonald.ie, however over time the content may no longer be relevant.
