Google flagged your site. Now, I was going to give different advice then I ended up writing here... at first I gave this guy (name and link to his site now removed) the benefit of the doubt. However, then I went to his web site. I was on his site less then 20 seconds before I saw the problem. Saw WHY Google flagged his site.
For all his boo-hooing and claims of being innocent and saying he did nothing wrong... I'm wondering what kind of a fool he takes me or Google for being?
Now that I have reviewed his site and seen the problems, let's go back to his question once again, and write up an answer... one he's not gonna like.
Below is a clip from his question...
You said you did linkclocking? You mean "link cloaking" as in, hiding where your links are coming from because they are coming from scammy fake sites built to drive fake traffic? You do know Google Penguin was created specifically to find sites like that an unindex them, right? You've been hit by Google's Penguin.
Oh wait...let's go back and reread what Google said to you:
Okay, so you admit to cloaking links, and Google said they unidexed you for link cloaking and now you want to know what t do to fix the problem? Uhm, here's a thought:
Why don't you just do what Google asked you to do and stop cloaking links? That would seem to be the answer.
Where link cloaking your only problem I'd say just stop cloaking links and resubmit. But, link cloaking is far from your only problem.
You notice Google gave you a list of things you did wring, right?
As in multiple things were done by you to cause you to be flagged and unindexed by Google.
Google flagged your site for a reason, and do you know what that reason was?
Let me put it in bright pink letters so you can see it really good:
Does that seem harsh, calling you a criminal? Well, not when you consider the crime you committed comes with a $50,000 fine and up to 25 years in prison.
You committed a federal crime. And that why Google flagged you.
How do I know? Well, I just came from looking at your site. Yep. Plagiarism. Copyright infringement. Theft. You are a criminal.
Let's look at Google's list they gave you, shall we?
Let's go over each of the reasons Google flagged your site one at a time, compare them to the pages of your site, and see if we can't figure out why Google has accused you of these things, alrighty, now?
Okay, I just looked at your site, it only took me opening the 3 latest blog posts to see the problem:
When Google says "empty" or "blank" pages, they mean pages with fewer then 400 words on them. Every blog post on your site is 1, 2, maybe sometimes 3 sentences at most, followed by an embedded YouTube video. The YouTube Videos being "reviews" and by review what it is, is you typing up SOMEONE ELSE's review off Amazon, ClickBank, etc into a 1 to 2 minute text based video.
I just ran a scan of your site content, here's what the scanner results said:
Well, there you go. I picked the LONGEST page I could find on your site, to run through the scanner and even that had ONLY 284 words. And Google won't index you with fewer then 400 words PER PAGE, and since the FRED update of March 8, 2017, even pages with 400 words aren't cutting it these days. Google's FRED went through and unidexed almost every page of every website that had fewer then 1,000 words on it, and, oddly, you say now on March 28, 2017, 20 days later that you were unindexed, which means you got hit by the FRED update.
It's not surprising that FRED unidexed you. I had a hard time finding a page on your site with more then a single sentence on it. You don't have one single, solitary page with a full paragraph on it. I took the longest page I could find to run through the scanner and see what it said, and it said you only have 284 words!
For crying out loud, what exactly is it you are expecting Google to index? You can''t even take the time to write a full paragraph, why in the heck should any one take the time to open your page? Can you see the logic here? Google doesn't want to waste people's time, so why WOULD they index your pages? They have no reason to. You have no content for them to send people to your page to read!
I'm sorry, but Google is right. You have NO CONTENT on your pages. You are providing nothing unique, useful, original, or of value.
Google flagged you for blank pages because you have blank pages.
Google flagged you for empty pages because you have empty pages.
The solution: Your site must consistently have blog posts of 1,000 to 2,000 words per article before Google will read you to their search index.
Now this is not something I can tell, just by looking at your site.
It is something I can tell, however, by clicking from your site to it's FaceBook Page, Twitter Profile, etc.
Yes. Google has accused you correctly. Posting every 5 minutes a link to your site, is an aggressive spam technique.
I can also tell by, searching around various black hat forums and online communities, searching for your username and or site name to see, that you are abusing forum posting. You've a nasty habit of posting comments on blogs, forums, and FaceBook, your comment being simply "I agree. Check out my site....LINK...."
I can see on the Warrior's Forum alone, you have posted 100+ such comments just in the past week.
Yes, Google DOES search through forum posts looking to see how often you, YOURSELF, links to your own site, and does unindex your site for this aggressive spam technique, which Google frowns upon and flags sites for doing.
So, yes, Google flagged your site for aggressive spam techniques and yes, it took me about 2 minutes of searching through your accounts to see that yes you are doing it just like Google said you were.
Google flagged you for aggressive spam techniques, because you are practicing aggressive spam techniques.
The solution: Stop spamming everyone, every where you go. Only post to FaceBook when you create a new page. Just once, to announce the page is there. And never again. Same goes for Twitter. And remember that Twitter is a chat room. People go there to chat. If you are not chatting, regular every day talking about every day life, then you are just annoying the other Tweeters who ARE using Twitter correctly. And don't post a comment on a blog or in a forum, unless you actually have something USEFUL to say, and never post a link to your own site in your posts. That is what forum signatures are for.
Where to begin.
I hate to call you an idiot, but... you're freaking idiot.
I mean, it's one thing to be stupid enough to post automatically generated gibberish to begin with, but you could at least READ it before you pot it online.
So, I'm going to copy a line off one of your posts...
...and prove to you, how much of an idiot you are, prove to the world, you are a criminal, a thief, and a stupid jackass, AND you are posting content that is respun by a spam bot...
look at the opening of this post from your website:
Now... you are an idiot, because you asked this question to someone who knows a little bit something about alien abductions and recognizes the names of the researchers.
I also live around the corner from Harvard and know it's name.
It took Google .00058 seconds to find the ORIGINAL article your scraped, stolen, automatically generated gibberish content came from.
So, now let's read your pile of stolen regenerated horse crap vs the opening of the ORIGINAL article you stole it from:
My first thought was this:
Are you really THAT STUPID, that you didn't know Professor Rich McNally was his NAME and that changing it to Professor wealthy McNally reads as absolute nonsense and gibberish? Did you really not know Rich was his name? Did you really thing, it meant "wealthy" when it said his name was Rich?
I mean if you are gonna respin a name, you could at least change it from Rich to Richard, so it wouldn't read as gibberish nonsense.
Google flagged you for automatically generated gibberish, because your site is covered with automatically generated gibberish.
Think about it. Hey, let's play a game. I'm going to write a fake conversation with a guy named Rich and then I'm going to pretend to be stupid like you and respiin his name to the word wealthy. Let's see how well that goes, shall we?
Hey, Rich, how you doing? It's a nice day, isn't it Rich? I'm going on a date with Rich tonight. Rich is a great guy, don't you think? Do you like Rich too? Rich and I are going for ice cream, want to come along?
Now let's respin it.
Hey, wealthy, how you doing. It's a nice day, isn't it wealthy? I'm going on a date with wealthy tonight. Wealthy is a great guy, don't you think? Do you like wealthy too? Wealthy and I are going for ice cream, want to come along?
You are an article respinner. And a shitty one at that.
Article respinners, find popular articles and respin them to try to get AdSense revenue to their sites. It's a "new" form of plagiarism created by the internet age.
If you don't know what an article respinner is, this is what they look like:
Take any article, any forum post, any text, put it in each of those respinners and see what they spit out.
They are commonly used by college students to "write" fake essays, and scam artists masquerading as content "writers" who spit out shitty websites to try to scam Google into paying them AdSence money.
Let's play another game. Let's take that clip I just wrote and actually toss it into those respiners and see what they give us. How about that?
Now let's see what we get.
Uhm... what the heck is that "2 weeks" it tossed in there?
So, this one gives us options that we have to pick and choose from. And you can see where it changed Rich's name to: High, Affluent, and Full.
Let's see what the next one gives us...
Okay, this one spit out a code (above) and then sent me to a second page where I submit the code to get:
Well, that obviously is the one you are using. It's spitting out the exact same type of gibberish you have on your site.
Moving on to the next one...
Well, what do you know. I respinner that doesn't spit out unreadable gibberish! Who's a thunk it!
Huh? Maybe you used this one. It though Rich was wealthy too.
There you go. That's what respinners do.
Hey, guess what, thanks to Panda, Penguin, Phantom, Pigeon, Hummingbird, and FRED, you can't pull the wool over Google's RankBrain any more.
I'm sorry, but you've been caught red handed stealing content, scraping content, respinning content, uploading automatically generated gibberish, and Google flagged you and unindexed you, because you're a thieving low life piece of shit.
The solution: Stop stealing content from others. Write your own damn content. In other words: stop being a lazy, good for nothing piece of crap.
Now, I could take the time to go through your site looking for the cloaked links, but you already admitted in your question that you have been cloaking links and my question is, WHY.
WHY are you cloaking links?
You do know that ONLY black hat sites run by low life, gutter scum criminals have any reason to cloak links, right?
Link cloaking means hiding where your links are coming from because they are coming from scammy fake sites built to drive fake traffic, to other scammy fake sites, for the purpose of scamming Google into paying you AdSence money for fake traffic and fake clicks.
In other words, you've been hiring bots to visit your site and click your ads, to try to scam Google into thinking real Humans were clicking on the links. And you have to cloak everything you are doing, to hide your tracks from Google. But you can't hide from Penguin. I'm sorry, but Google created Penguin for the purpose of hunting down sites like yours.
You do know Google Penguin was created specifically to find sites that practice link spam, link cloaking, and other shady linking techniques and unindex them, right?
You not only got hit by Google's FRED, you've been hit by Google's Penguin, as well. That's why Google flagged you. Google flagged you for cloaking links, because you are cloaking links.
The solution: Stop buying link clicks, stop buying fake traffic, stop buying fake backlinks... just stop trying to game the system and do an honest day's hard work for a change.
I think we already covered this one. Let's see, you've been caught red handed stealing content, scraping content, respinning content, uploading automatically generated gibberish, and Google flagged you and unindexed you, because you're a thieving low life piece of shit.
Yep, we already covered this one.
Let's cover it some more though. Let's talk about those YouTube videos.
NEWSFLASH: stealing someone else's reviews, putting the text in a video, is a form of "scraped content". Google was right to say your site is scraped content. I just looked at your site. It's right there. Stolen content plain as day. Did no one ever teach you stealing was wrong? You are going to have to stop stealing other people's hard work and start doing some work of your own if you want Google to not play hardball with you.
Here's a tip: stop being a criminal and Google will stop treating you like one. I'm sorry, but stealing is a crime and, be thankful it only Google unidexing you and not the copyright owners taking you to court.
Stealing reviews, like stealing anything else is a federal crime punishable with up to $50,000 fine and 25 years in prison.
You better start praying Google doesn't start making a policy of contacting copyright owners when they find stolen content... you do know they said they are planning to do that in one of their future updates, right?
RankBrain has a goal of not only finding stolen content but with in the next year or so Google is going to start aggressively shutting down criminal thieves by not only unindexing the stolen content but also notifying the copyright owners.
I'm sorry your parents didn't have enough decency to teach you to not steal and that you have to learn from it from a stranger online, but, hey, stealing is in fact wrong, and Google was right to unindex stolen content.
It's as simple as that.
Scraped content is stolen content.
Google does not support criminal activities. Stealing is a criminal activity.
Google flagged you for scraping content from other websites, because you are scraping content from other websites.
Google flagged you for stealing, because you are stealing.
The solution: Stop stealing content from others. Write your own damn content. In other words: stop being a lazy, good for nothing piece of crap.
This means, that this is not the first time Google has caught you misbehaving and they are telling you enough is enough. They are fed up with you bothering them. They are sick and tired of scam artists like you wasting their time. This is Google's way of tell you to go jump off a cliff and get the hell out of their hair.
And... Google doesn't unindex you for a first time offence. Or a second time offence. Or even a third time offence. They have a reputation of contacting site owners and going step by step with you over everything that is wrong and giving you links to all their articles on how to fix the issues and you really have to be a pretty bad repeat offender for Google to finally say they've had it and slap a blacklist on your site like this.
Google flagged you for repeated or egregious violations of Google's Webmaster Guidelines, because you are committing repeated or egregious violations of Google's Webmaster Guidelines over and over again after they repeatedly ask you to stop doing it.
The solution: Stop pestering Google. They've had it with you.
I don't think Google can make it any clearer then they did. I don't know why you are running around asking what to do, when Google spelled it right out to you what they want.
How much plainer can they make it?
Submit ORIGINAL content means: stop stealing from others and start writing your own content.
Relevant to your site means, on topic with the topic of your website, instead of randomly scraping every currently popular topic.
Google told you what they want. Is it that hard for you to understand?
Content = words, text, videos, images - created by you.
Not STOLEN by you.
Not EDITED by you.
Not RESPUN by you.
Not SCRAPED by you.
Not PIRATED by you.
Not REGURGITATED by you.
But CREATED by you.
Original = never before seen.
Unique = 100% one of a kind.
Google wants ORIGINAL content.
You asked how to fix your site... Google already told you what they wanted, you stupid jackass! What the hell are you coming to me for a second opinion for what you already got your answer straight from the horse's mouth?!?!
I would like to be nice to you, but do you have any idea how many times, shit head pieces of crap like you steal my articles off my site and respin them, the same way you are doing to other people?
I am constantly sending out take down notices to shit head thieving pirates like you. I'll tell you this, you got some nerve, boldly asking me how to help you fix your scrapped content site full of stuff you stole from others.
Google already told you what to do.
REMOVE THE DAMNED STOLEN CONTENT off your site and replace it with ORIGINAL CONTENT instead.
Google TOLD you ALREADY what to do, why in the heck are you second guessing them?
Google flagged you for lack of original content, because you no original content.
Google flagged you for stealing content, because you are stealing content.
Google flagged you for respinning content, because you are respinning content.
Google flagged you for scraped content, because you are scraping content.
Google flagged you for pirating content, because you are pirating content.
Google flagged you for regurgitating content, because you are regurgitating content.
To correct the problem do this:
Write your own content.
Make sure all of your blog posts are 1,000+ words.
Don't steal other people's reviews. Instead, try the product yourself and write your own review.
Write useful things that provide value.
And don't steal other people's work.
Real writers write for real reasons about real things that are important to them.
Scam artists steal from real writers, re-purpose their words, and try to make money for nothing by scraping other people's hard work.
It's very easy to create your own blog posts, your own reviews. Google rewards unique content.
Take this as a lesson learned, just follow the rules: be unique, write content, don't steal; and you'll be all set to resubmit to Google.
