My websites got deindex by using the rank tracker software?

In the last few days, most of my money making websites, 30 of them got deindex by Google without knowing the real reason. The only thing I did differently was adding the rank tracker wp plug in to all my websites. Does any one have such an experience?

HI,

That actually sounds more like something due to your hosting, especially if all of those sites are on the same IP that could have been blocked for spamming or "bad neighborhood". Also, if you are interlinking those 30 sites, it could have been hit for being a linkwheel of sorts.

Recheck your indexing by typing the domain name into Google and seeing if it comes up at all.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply, not all of them on the same IP, and not all of them interlinks! One of the my site is 11 years old, and got deindex!
I wonder if they will come back after a while, or should i just move the sites to new domain and start them new again? It is really hurting.

Hi,

Trace back any changes you made prior, such as the plugin. If you think that would have an effect, get rid of it.

Keep building links as normal.

Get into Webmaster Tools and see what Google is saying about your sites.

Check out the Panda update details and make sure that your sites are "compliant".

Keep building links as normal once you're sure everything is good and they will come back.

Thanks for the advice, Google just did not say anything about the sites, they just deindexed them! The sites still get traffic from Yahoo and Bing, but significant less. very frustrated...

When you setup Webmaster Tools, you will see your site as Google sees it, as well as any error messages, etc. If you believe everything is up to standards, you can even submit a reinclusion request.
