Man Google works fast / Blackhat SEO

Discussion in 'Google' started by Nikke86, Aug 17, 2007.

    I used the Google Webmasters tools to report a site that was ranking TOP10 with the finnish equalent of the keyword poker. The site was using invicible text to bump up their ratings ( without any apparent reason, it was good text that could had been visible).

    2 days later the site is totally gone from google. I have to hand it our for Google. They work really fast.

    Only idiots do not report spammers. Calling that being a narc is infantile, and you surely have no clue how to make money online.

    Talk about losers, jezus.

    That's a hand job. Using webmaster tools like that is cutting your own throat unless you are squeaky clean. At some point, they are going to start investigating the snitches.

    I agree, it is a good thing to report spammers. They ruin it for the ones who follow the rules

    And what exactly you are doing by calling him a loser?

    He is in Poker niche thus he should be monitoring competitors of that niche. Now if someone is spaming to gain the position what should he do?

    Forget him, what would you do, if it was your niche and your competitor?
    1. Leave him to continue spamming?
    2. Start spamming to gain position above him?
    3. Log in to forum and start calling people Losers?
    4. Bang your head on wall until you get unconscious?
    5. Report his site to search engine?

    Yea, Google is rapidly hiring people in countries like India, China, and USA and is increasing their workforce so they can act faster and expand faster.

    What goes around, comes around.

    My dear friend,

    1. Figure out where he got his backlinks from, analyze his keyword density and observe his on page SEO. Hidden text isn't a big enough ranking factor to get that high. Utilize it as a learning experience to increase the standing of your own site, at least do it BEFORE you Narc him.

    2. Paid stumbles and SB are spamming. Spam is a pretty broad definition. Unless you are commenting on blogs you have a genuine interest in, or getting quality links for your content value, it's all human generated backlink efforts to increase ranking.

    3. Pass

    4. See #1

    5. What is incredibly foolish is to come onto a public forum and boast about it. The guy who got banned now has a breadcrumb trail to follow. The reporting game goes both ways.

    Dude, I would be extremely stupid and Idiot of the first degree if I use hidden text/keyword stuffing on my pages. Regardless of whether it helps in ranking it is against Webmaster guidelines.
    It's not hard to play by rules.. Even if one wants to be a daredevil, then he should atleast stay in gray area. If anyone is stepping in black area, he should be ready for facing the ban/drop every moment.


    What I do not understand, why some people get sympathetic with rule breaker.
    I have seen people bashing people who report Adsense cheaters. And the same is going on here..

    The guy broke a rule, And he got banned from SE.. Is it that hard to swallow?

    Almost all SEO is against the Webmaster Guidelines. I mean, how many of us build sites for other users and then when we realize they don't rank, start tweaking content, the DOM, and start generating links?

    Answer: Most of us.

    It's not sympathy. My sympathy is with the poor webmaster who doesn't have enough skills to overcome a blackhat competitor (and keyword stuffing by CSS is hardly BH) resorting to reporting, when they should be using it as an opportunity to expand their skill base.

    Not at all. I lost 2 dozen sites a few weeks ago. I learned from it, and I'm coming back into that niche a lot more prepared to rank and to last.

    I totally do not agree.

    BHers don't go to all of that trouble to rank for one day or one hour.
