So.. I had a adsense account suspended.. In panic i started deleting posts, tags and doing expanded searches for any clothing sizes "xxxl" or any other terms that could be offensive...
I resubmitted for reactivation and was denied. So i deleted more product pages, tags and such that are valid product names but apparently are sex related slang. Such as the shoe brand "Footjoy" which from my understanding is slang among some for some sort of perversion.
Then there was a HUGE influx of other people posting similar problems and reporting being suspended unsure of what they have done wrong.
Ended up the site had been hacked by what is referred to as a conditional hack. Basically the text and link was not viewable by a browser but when visited by a google bot the link to the porn sites was inserted. For me it was in the copyright statement and the function calling "year" was swapped out with a long line of porn links.
So i removed the function from the footer in wordpress and adsense has been restored... Unfortunately even after cleaning up i was looking at over 2500+ broken links.
I have been doing what i can cleaning up all wordpress sites affected but my ranking will never be what it was.. I still have dead links listed online that are no longer dead but for some reason they still show in the Google webmaster tools report. I tried to used a plugin absolute links but it only ended up in creating redirect loops.
From experienced users that have had this type of situation with thousands of broken links at one time..
Is it better to just redirect all 404 errors to the index page that cant be restored?
Is there any standard procedure for a situation like this to help recover link juice or is all lost?
Any and all suggestions are welcome..
