banned by google blogsearch because of ping-spam?

  • Hi!

    I did`nt know, that wordpress sends a ping to ping-o-matic every time I edit my texts (I deleted ping-o-matic now because of that).
    I edited a lot. 🙁
    Now none of my texts shows up at google-blogsearch or technorati.com.
    I think I was banned by them as a “ping-spammer”.
    -Am I correct?
    -The website-settings seems correct to me: no robots.txt, and I can add the feed of my site without problems to my feedreader.
    My site is http://www.richhiker.de.

    So what can I do, to get my texts un-banned by all the blog-search-engines, which I ping-spammed via ping-o-matic (especially google blogsearch)?

    Is richhiker.de banned life-long? Or do they un-ban my texts after a while automatically? If yes: How long do I have to wait?

    Thanks for all helpful suggestions!

    What have Google forums said about this?

    Now none of my texts shows up at google-blogsearch or technorati.com. I think I was banned by them as a “ping-spammer”.

    Is it just a guess or did you receive a notice/ message from Google? As far as I know, in cases of bans or violation of Google policies, they either send you a notice or post a message on your Google Webmaster Tools account. Did you get anything like that? Or did you find anything objectionable in your account?

    I just checked your indexed pages and also searched using Google blog search. I find your site there and don’t find any problems.

    thanks for the suggestions so far!

    Krishna,
    I got no notification at gmail. But am not “verificated” at webmastertools yet…
    I find only the richhiker.de-homepage at google blogsearch…
    Can you find any of the other richhiker.de-sites there?

    Andrew, good suggestion.
    I will check ask at google-forums now
