How do I get d-listed from Googles blacklist

I can't seem to get an answer on how to get d-listed from google.  When I do an IP look up of our public IP I find it listed only with SORBS.  I can't seem to get d-listed with them either.  The server did have a hijacker on it that I have removed.

Is changing your IP a possibility? Most, but not all, sites with a static IP have a block of 5 IP's assigned to them. If that is the case you could change the IP and necessary DNS records. If you have a dynamic IP, changing the MAC address of your router should result in a new IP being assigned.

This assumes the source of the problem has been removed. If not the new IP will be blocked within a few hours.
I'm sure something is still running and needs to be removed. (virus/backdoor/open smtp relay)
And note that it takes about 24 hours to get dlisted after doing previous and following dlisting procedures.
Even though you're only listed with SORBS, A LOT of organizations use SORBS as their blacklist provider.  So if you're blacklisted by them, you'll probably won't be able to send email to a lot of people.

With SORBS, the IP will eventually expire and you will be de-listed.  But, if you want to get it done faster and have them remove you from the blacklist sooner, you'll have to open a support ticket with SORBS.
Also, you can try this first if you have indeed fixed your issue.
Thank you for your question. Ryan Johnston is correct in regards SORBS. If you are in fact blacklisted by Google, please take note that this blacklist will automatically drop after 30 days. If your server/site has recently been hacked/hijacked/injected then please review Google's words below:

"We would prefer to keep your pages in Google's index. If you wish to be reconsidered, please correct or remove all pages (may not be limited to the examples provided) that are outside our quality guidelines. One potential remedy is to contact your web host technical support for assistance. For more information about security for webmasters, see When such changes have been made, please visit to learn more and submit your site for reconsideration." -

I hope this helps you. Let us know if you have any further questions and we will be more than happy to answer them for you. Good luck!
