Removal from Google’s Index

December 4, 2009 at 9:47 am Leave a comment

OK, today was total panic mode when I logged in to my Google Webmaster Tools, here is was, a message from Google saying they were going to remove a website I work on from the index because its been hacked. So I go around the office “We’ve been hacked!”, everyone working on this now…

Until someone pointed out to me the date, the message was dated August 17…. Come on Google, why on earth would you put an old message in my Webmaster account as unread? If I add a new domain to my account today I do not expect an old message thats already been dealt with ages ago as unread in my inbox..

Removal from Google’s Index

August 17, 2009

Dear site owner or webmaster of xxxxxx.xx.xx,

While we were indexing your webpages, we detected that some of your pages were using techniques that are outside our quality guidelines, which can be found here: This appears to be because your site has been modified by a third party. Typically, the offending party gains access to an insecure directory that has open permissions. Many times, they will upload files or modify existing ones, which then show up as spam in our index.

The following is some example hidden text we found at http://www.xxxxx.xx.xx/:

In order to preserve the quality of our search engine, pages from xxxxxx.xx.xx are scheduled to be removed temporarily from our search results for at least 30 days.

We would prefer to keep your pages in Google’s index. If you wish to be reconsidered, please correct or remove all pages (may not be limited to the examples provided) that are outside our quality guidelines. One potential remedy is to contact your web host technical support for assistance. For more information about security for webmasters, see When such changes have been made, please visit to learn more and submit your site for reconsideration.

Sincerely, Google Search Quality Team
