Hello,

My website's Page Rank is 0 since few months

I send two reviews to Google via Google Webmaster Tools but no update happened on my Page Rank
I rebuilt my website on the standards that Google offers in its guide.


My question is:
How can I know if google banned my website or not, and how can I make Google update my Page Rank or bring it up again ?



Thank you,
Ahmed

Do you get any results for a site search (site:domain.com)?

The PageRank toolbar is only updated about 3 or 4 times a year so you'll probably need to wait until the next update to actually know what that page's toolbar PR is.

How's everything else going with your site? You getting visitors to it?

Yes most of my visitors coming from Google
I am waiting since more than 1 year
But the same result 0/10 of Google Page Rank

You have to fix whatever it is that you did to attempt to trick the search engines. And then submit a reconsideration request.

If you don't know what you did, then read Google's webmaster guidelines until you can figure it out.

If your pages come up in a site: search and most of your traffic is coming from Google, you're not banned, no matter what you're seeing in the toolbar PageRank display. If you were actually banned, Google wouldn't be sending you any traffic, because none of your pages would be returned on any searches there.

Stop looking at the PR numbers. They don't always reflect what's really going on and don't mean much anyway as it's all relative.

Look in your stats, check Google Webmaster Tools to see what they show your site ranking for and focus on building your content, making it better. That is always needed!

Is the only issue the PR of 0 you're seeing in the toolbar? If that's it, there's nothing to resolve, because it doesn't really indicate a problem.

If your goal is for a higher PR display in the toolbar, get lots of links and wait six months, but you'll probably find it wasn't worth the effort.

I am getting this problem for two of my sites as well. I have a PR0 for both but the sites are still indexed in Google and I am pretty sure that I haven't done anything that violates Google TOS. So what should I do to resolve it?


Easy. Stop looking at the PR toolbar and all will be well.

I am very sure that the site(s) are penalised with PR0.

Penalized for what? If you've done something that you think could be cause for a penalty, then toolbar PR is the least of your problems. If you haven't, then why would you think that low toolbar PR is an indication of a penalty?

Clients are not going to have a good perception of the company if its touting SEO services but they see a PR0 in the toolbar.


If you're selling SEO services you should know that toolbar PR most of the time is broken and doesn't say anything.

I've never heard from a potential client that looks at our toolbar PR. Most never even heard of it.
