    Looks like Aviva directory has been hit by the penalty from google
    SEMrush

    Google "aviva directory"

    No where to be found for its OWN url :eek::eek:

    I think all the threads lately have been correct

    GOOGLE is taking action!:eek:

    Oh man -

    Sorry to hear this guys,

    Some of these directories have real value and the owners work real hard,

    This is just messed up if you ask me ,

    I think I need another tattoo

    Its interesting thou how you can google

    Best of the web and they still rank #2 BUT I also see them using adwords on the sponsor links there

    Do you think google is giving them favoritism ?

    Too right Business.com and Best of the Web both buy links just like the rest of us, you won't see them getting hit with any penalty.

    Seems a bit strong to say that. How in the world could you prove such a claim? ;)
