Ban in search engines is the most serious type of punishment for websites by search engines, which is imposed for using unacceptable methods of search promotion from the point of view of search engines. The punishment is the complete exclusion of the web resource from the index, that is, for an indefinite period the pages of the site are not indexed and do not appear in the search results. The ban can be set by search engines both in manual mode and in automatic mode.
