Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My website had very high search engine results, especially in Google. But I left the website for a couple of months and didn't notice the comments were full of SPAM, about 20k comments of SPAM. Then i checked my google results and I'm out of google ! After years of having good results, no spam, how can I now recover from that? The spam problem has been solved completely. No more spam, and the website is very legit and very nice.

Well, at least I think I was penalized, I don't see any other reason.

webmasters.com, SO's sister site for pro webmasters, is probably a better platform for this question –  fvu Jul 16 '11 at 23:19

I would clean up the spam and then ask for a reconsideration. I would also drop the auto post option add a quality bot spam filter.

You should ask for it to google through Google Webmaster Tool (first you must register your site, then ask for the reconsideration)
