  1. Hmmm this is very interesting Thanks for putting this together.

    It is very interesting to see how google is tackling negative SEO. I have seen people complain about updowner.com links and google is adamant that they wont harm your site but people have evidence that it has. I also wonder about zeezo.com as they also do tons of links but it is a directory and so you request to add your link. Updowner.com just steal your content!

    All the best

  2. Hey Gregg,

    I really hope that Matt Cutts and his Google’s SPAM team get their act together.

    In the article they mention they are going to release a tool to get rid of the unsolicited links to our sites. I get a TON of these links and I’m not requesting them so I can’t stop these people from linking to my site.

    My website has been seriously penalized lately, it went from an Alexa rank of 80k all the way to 140k and getting worse.

    I just keep it up because people already know it by memory but it’s almost as is Google didn’t wanted it on the search results and the funny thing is that it barely has any ads and it’s full of great content.

    I survived the Panda update but the Penguin update completely nailed me.


  3. Great post, thank you! I’m part of Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge and one of the reasons is all the silly Google games. But then quality usually rules and I’m kind of glad it’s not a case of whoever pays for the most links gets the top spot.

    Wishing you the best of success,


  4. Backlinks by itself are links to your web page that can be employed to help your research engine rankings. Apart from this, some webmasters imagine that getting back-links from all of websites generally is a beneficial. Forums are a good place to get connected to people who are considering the same thing you happen to be promoting and for that reason, it is a great way to market your business.
