Recently, Live Search released a comprehensive guide for Webmasters to evaluate whether their sites are being penalized. According to one of the blog post , a Webmaster should follow the below mentioned points as a remedial action.

  • Microsoft said, “most webmasters who get penalized know why it happened.”
  • First confirm your site is penalized by validating your site at Live Search Webmaster Tools and then clicking on the Summary tool and then the Site status section. Blocked “Yes” means you are penalized.
  • Figure out what you did wrong by using the various tools to see your crawl issues, malware issues, link issue or something else.
  • Microsoft then explains various reasons why a “good guy” can be penalized.
  • Once you fix the issue then go to this form and fill it out, plus select the “Content Inclusion Request” option and submit. I do wonder why the form is not also built into Webmaster Tools.
