Fix to ban google search from Cloaking and/or sneaky redirects

Discussion in 'robots.txt' started by MarcL, Jul 30, 2015.

    Hey,

    So I run an advertising network, so our domain will obviously redirect you to pop ups and other types of advertisements but google keeps banning us from their search because of it.
    SEMrush
    I tried to fix it with my robots.txt which I will paste below:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /c.php
    Disallow: /pop.php
    Disallow: /inlinepop.php
    Disallow: /interstitial.php
    Disallow: /track.php
    Disallow: /trackc.php
    Disallow: /tracko.php
    Disallow: /trackoc.php
    Disallow: /web/fly/*
    Disallow: /banner.php

    Does anyone know a fix to this? Is my robots.txt wrong? Also all of these will have variable after them for example c.php?u=1

    I would appreciate everyone's two sense on this!

    I could be mistaken, but Google hates stuff like this. This type of functionality throws up a big red flag as I'm sure you have noticed. Can you share a little more about your site, do visitors just get redirected to different ads depending on which url they navigate to?

    Other than having the word porn in the URL and brand name I don't see why Google would have an issue with that site. I could understand if the site doesn't rank well without doing a heavy seo campaign, but I don't see why the site would be de-indexed.

    Does the site itself redirect to porn sites anywhere, or do you just sell ads for adult content and your affiliates post the ads?

    Only the ad pages redirect. for example pornearn.com/pop.php?w=1 would redirect to an ad.. but pornearn.com just goes to the homepage.

    Porn in the name has nothing to do with it. We used to rank great for "Adult Webmaster Form", "Adult Advertising Network", But Adult Traffic", etc..
