Firstly find out what you have done wrong on your website. Google does not like spamming, cloaking, link building and similar “not so good” tactics.

But what to you do when your site has been penalized or banned from Google. The only thing you need and can do is to clean up your web-site, go to Google and ask for mercy. Thats it!

  1. This is really weird. My site hits in all of the google search engines around the world besides the US results. I have no clue why this is, as I dont believe I have done anything wrong. Does anyone have any insight into this?

  2. Thank you for your insight, as it is still very odd to me. I am a US based web business yet all of my traffic comes from Canada and other parts of the world. I have a suspicion that google is delivering results highly based on their IP location. I have a Canadian host for that site. Do you think I should reconsider request to Google to let them know of this?

  3. I would try that. But if the site is .com and in US english the hosting should not matter that much.

    If your focus market US focused try looking at your inbound links, if they are highly Canada oriented then you might want to look at getting more links from US based sites.
