What is EMD?
Exact Match Domain
Just google it and you will see what it is.
I just Googled it. It is "Electro-Motive Diesel"... Thanks!
Just put some nice & fresh content on the website and submit a reconsideration request. Explain that you bought the domain and the penalty is not your fault. This is what I did in my case and the penalty was removed.
Just ditch it and move on.
When you're setting up a PBN it's perfectly natural to pick up the occasional dud domain regardless of how much due diligence you do, C'est la vie!
use 301 redirects, or wait for google review 10 business days.
host it on the shittiest free hosting platform you can find and point it at a competitor....surrounded with viagra spam - preferably chinese viagra spam
I think they devalue the backlinks after that. It will lose its strenght. Not sure though...
You make me feel so much better. I made a lot of work to choose it and then felt like I was idiot... Thanks.
Aren't 301 redirects of a penalized site harmful?
Wow! This is really evil. I like this thought..!
If you already have some metrics and old domain then it's won't be harmful.
some spam allowed but not so much.
I have many expired domains redirected with 301 to my general domain it's only generating faster backlinks and some good metrics.
He could use the Google disavow tool, email the webmasters of all the spam sites email asking for link removal, document the emails sent, and ask Google for reconsideration. IF he does a good job of all that and Google see's he has followed the guidelines of trying to rid himself of the spam they might lift the penalty. This isn't rocket science. It's obvious he just bought the domain, Google knows that. So I suggest he read Google's reconsideration documentation and FOLLOW IT TO THE T.
Is there any way to be able to know what is wrong with this domain? I mean... Maybe it is not penalized because of the links. Maybe they have made cloaking, doorway, hidden text or something.
Only you can tell if it is worth your time if you really want it that bad. Assess what you could potentially lose. But since it was penalized, it will probably consume your time and it is like starting from scratch. Your site may or may not recover.
Well, I read over the message in your OP and it looks like the CONTENT of the website was terrible. Like they used spun gibberish content. So if you build a new site that used QUALITY content you might be able to submit for reconsideration. Read this: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35843?hl=en
For the record, I'd also disavow any spam links the site has. Just wanted to add that. You're starting fresh, rid yourself of the spam links.
@ThopHayt you are gold!
I thought that message was kind of generic and they send it to all of the manual actions cases. After I had read your comment, I checked around and found out that it is just as you said. It has to do with the content of the site.
Here is a different message for example:
My problem is labeled as "pure spam" and I have already cleaned it by installing my fresh website (at least it is what I think).
Here is more info on the pure spam thing:
And here is a list of the reasons you may get a penalty:
So, putting all these things together, I think that I can fix it. I will clean some bad links as you added and then I will send the request.
Thank you so much!
Got my domain penalized by google because there was an ad on my site redirecting to another site, the problem is that i wasn't redirected, only users... then i told them the truth, in 3 days got response, they removed my penalty.
Keep us updated on the final resolution about this, mario, I'm interested to see how this turns.
Sure! I need time to do some things, but I will come with more information when finished.
Tell them the truth, tell them u just bought the domain and its not your fault...
You can fix it, but you will have to use that link I gave you and figure out how to apply for reconsideration. Shouldn't be hard though, best of luck.
