    Has my site been penalized?


    Hello,

    I'm hoping somebody might be able to give me some advice. This forum has been so helpful to me over the last year in helping me optimising my sites - thanks to all who contribute.

    My question is - I have a site that was indexed by google when it had run out of bandwidth and I am now seeing that it has the bandwidth exceeded title - this hapened over three weeks ago and although the site is visited by the googbot every day it is not updating in google.

    Have I been penalized? and if so, does anyone know how I can go about getting my site back into google. This site generated a fair bit of my monthly income and I am getting worried that it won't be reaccepted.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    Google will revisit... just will take a little time to spider and/or get into the index. All you can really do is wait...

    I would also get a provider that doesn't give you bandwidth limits (or upgrade it) so it doesn't happen again.

    That really does suck dude! Don't stress though, this should be fine in around two or three weeks, maybe a month. I know that is cold comfort, but if you really on your site for a living, you really just need a better server.

    Thanks projectphpp and digitalpoint,

    Yes it does suck - it's been down since the 18th of last month so I'm hoping it won't be too much longer - seems a long time to me as I have other sites that update daily as did this particular one until it came up with the bandwidth exceeded title.

    I have since upgraded so that this doesn't happen again. I know, I know I should have kept track of the bandwidth I was using - I only have myself to blame.

    Thanks again for your reassurance that it'll show up in google again soon.

    I must admit I'm getting more and more worried as each day goes by :sad:

    if it is crawlerd it will be in the index (if it is not spam), if it is panelized it will not crawl it
