Negative SEO Coming…Coming…..Coming HERE~?
Negative SEO Taking Over the WWW?
Like a breath of Cold Fresh Air, the endless hours of work and likely tens of thousands of dollars you have put in to your website over the years has paid off. You launched your website with “FRESH ORIGINAL AND UNIQUE” content. Your design is user friendly, and your visitors enjoy what they have found. In fact they like it so much, they have even shared it on social sites like Facebook and Twitter where their friends and family can find it. All is going GREAT with your website. Heck, you have even added a blog, to help the site perform, to communicate new ideas and fresh content. Others have liked your work so much that they have not only linked to your website and copied your content it was so good but they also have become loyal clients, “YOUR AN AUTHORITY NOW” Right, …. You may be, but it seems Google may have another opinion…….. Your website has been good enough in their eyes to be at the top for a long long time for extremely tough rewarding terms.. Maybe you were just lucky, maybe blessed, maybe your placement was well earned..
The Spam Team Leader at Google “Matt Cutts” has spoke for years about the quality of search being paramount. Myself and many other SEO’s could not agree more. It is critical that when I search Google’s data base for a product or service, I get what I was looking for. And for it to be in the natural listing or Places. Most people know full well, you can squeeze false ads into the adwords of Google, and people will find results they really did not want.
Google has stepped up over the years and has provided the largest most useful and friendly search tool the world has ever know. But, have they fallen to the side of greed given the condition of the worlds economy?
Lets take a look at this theory.
You built a wonderful website with original and unique content years ago, and have worked tirelessly in its development and promotion. You have built a wonderful client base, however with the fallen economy, have lost a few clients, gained a few… Needless to say, you have become reliant on the EARNED SEARCH ENGINE PLACEMENT Awarded by Google, Bing and Yahoo and the rest. However, under no control of your own, your content, videos, images etc have been so good they have been copied and reused by some spamming lazy joker who would rather steal your content than create his/her own, and BANG!! YOUR GONE…. In order for your business, your family and loved ones website you have relied on has been hit by a Google update you have NO CONTROL OVER.. You must have new leads, and new clients in order to continue your business and supporting your family. Leaving you the option of AD-WORDS……. hmmm…
EARNED SEARCH ENGINE PLACEMENT
I agree search engine placement should be EARNED based on the relevance and authority of a website. However, it seems Google has made a public statement BY ITS LATEST UPDATE that you can in fact POACH ANOTHER Website out of their earned placement WITH NEGATIVE SEO.
I did a few pretty basic searches this evening and found some CRAZZZZY results:
LET’S SEE IF THEY STAY THIS WAY:
SEARCH TERM: “SOMETHING”
DELIVERED WWW.SOMETHING.COM NO WEBSITE, KEYWORD DENSITY IS 100% KEYWORDS CONTENT SPAM. “THE ONLY TEXT IS” (SOMETHING). GOOGLE CLAIMS THEY ARE CRACKING DOWN ON QUALITY, WHERE IS THE QUALITY IN THAT..
HERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER EXAMPLES OF THE SAME: WE WANT ANSWERS
Maybe I am missing something, but, is Google really that much smarter than YAHOO AND BING COMBINED, to be delivering such results to have ONE statement and more than 500 comments from Google webmasters looking for answers, with no response, other than ”
