My website lets people share subtitles, and sometimes users upload copyrighted material. Therefore, I wasn’t surprised to find that google blacklisted the pages which contain copyrighted material, and I am removing those.
However, the domain
example.com is now also blacklisted. How can I get it off the list, and let users find it via Google?
I’ve downloaded the copyright removals data from Google’s transparency report, scanned through, and found that many of the removal requests aren’t to pages like
example.com/disney_movie.html, but the domain
example.com. I also got the report from the lumen database, same problem. I found a relevant question here, but it mentions emails where Google notifies me of a DMCA removal, but I don’t have any such emails.
