How do I get my IP address removed from a blacklist

I am wondering why suddenly a site shows my site as blacklisted, for e.g. on Craigslist or Google.

Any advise on how to go about getting this resolved?

    How do I find out what the problem is.... all I know is that I use some plugins like ad-block etc to surf safely... but unsure how to troubleshoot the root cause.

    I scanned for virus with windows malicious software tool, not sure if its the right tool, but found nothing so far

  • Maybe you got a blacklisted IP from your ISP's pool (someone else did some shady things maybe). I had a blacklisted IP once or twice. Someone told me to just contact them.

    what benefit is there if you do get the listing removed? email? something else?

    if it's all about email, why not relay to somewhere that don't block you (mandrill comes to mind, or google)

    ftfy.

  • Your VPS or home IP? My home IP is on 4 blacklists and I've never noticed any issues!

    is it true that they will block lots of IPs, like a /24. so might not be your IP that was bad, but your neighbour.

    A little more clarity would be useful. But anyway, like @TheLonely suggested, it could be because of other past or present users of the same IP. If this is about your ISP then there could be hundreds of other people on the same IP depending on how they're set up. If that's the case and you're using DHCP then you could break the lease and see if you get another address, or you could ask them for a fixed IP. You could also use a VPN.

  • I'm guessing your not talking about IP address blacklists (DNSBL), but instead, the independent blacklists that Craigslist and Google uses. If your blocked from Craigslist, then it's most likely you or somebody else is running a script that logins and posts to Craigslist automatically. The only way to get off this list is to stop auto-posting or by changing the IP address. For Google, if your blacklisted by their email servers then you (or somebody else) is flooding them with spam or something on the SMTP server isn't setup (take a look at this article) for more info.
