    Google de-indexed my top producing site this week. It was making up 75% of my earnings. The funny part about it is that I didn't even work on the site for like 6 months. If it ain't broke don't fix it eh?

    Looks like I'll be eating ramen noodles for a few weeks. :hs:

    Maybe for buying links? I don't know, I haven't worked on the site for a while so it shouldn't really be an issue.

    Yes. But this was 6 months ago and it was then I realized buying links is worth crap. I haven't worked on the site and the number of external links in Webmaster tools was steadily dropping, although sales were increasing. I was still indexed though.

    If I kept buying links then yeah that would be a good reason for being banned.

    Follow Google's webmaster guidelines and you should be good. Don't buy links.

    I personally think it's a form of advertising but we are at the hands of the Google gods and they say no link buying, even from relevant sites.

    uhm

    how does one get listed on google in the first place? I'm not even in the first 10 pages. :rofl:

    I need SEO but I really don't want to pay 1k to some company to do it for me. Besides, my site is like.. a premade template. Not much I can do it to "SEOinize" it... I think..

    Fucking thing sucks :( I know how you feel although I only dropped to page 60 for one keyword, but it was my main keywod... I've done everything to get back to the #1 spot but NOTHING works :( But what I hate the most is that a shitty website that copied my whole site is on spot #2 now :mad: They could've at least tried to be original :rolleyes:

    sucks. so even a site: search doesn't bring up anything? (hoping you are not as dumb as the DP people)

    Although I don't even see the point of buying links... although you seemed to have realized that. It is super easy to find blogs with inner page PR that are do follow.

    Thats awesome. :rofl:

    I am a big fan of xrumer. I run that bitch at full bore 24/7 for 6 months now with no ill affects on my BH sites, although I am not as dumb as 99.9999% of the people that use it. and to people that say building links too fast will ban you from google. :rofl: When? after I made 20000% times my investment. :mamoru:

    Is that true?

    DOes it have to be a ridiculous speed? so that google thinks you sold your URL to link farms or something?

    What about someone with a site like Maddox who everyone links to cuz it's hilarious? Can you get banned that way if your site exudes so much awesomeness that everyone wants to link to it?

    I'd be livid. Does a webmaster have any recourse when this happens?
