    hi,

    i am getting pretty disillusioned with seo now.

    i bought a tripple x domain when they came out. I got a domain, set up the site, built some natural links, filled it with content, SEO'd it. bookmarked it. bought a few gigs on fiverr.

    nothing special. not particularly blackhat. not worth de-indexing me over.

    i then used highprsociety and got some paid links. seriously though, a few pr 2, pr3s etc.. i only spent 50 on it. and i have had the website for a while so it wasn't like i bought it and slammed it with a billion links...

    i got to page 1 and was listed 4th. i was sooo happy. i went from 20 visitors a day to 200 visitors a day. i was over the moon. i know this is a bulls**t amount of visitors but it was like a green shoot of hope. i thought that with the amount of time, money and effort that i had spent on it... and i had spent a lot of time in particular, that things were going well.

    but since thurs/friday i have dropped altogether out of the rankings for the keywords (i can't even tell you the url or keywords because this spam system on bhw won't let me - great) and now my homepage won't even come up when i type the url - it also hasn't been indexed since thurs/fri even though i have pinged it, bookmarked it manually, submitted a sitemap to webmaster tools, asked to reindex it and built a blog link to it.

    so i think google has fu**ed me. in bing i am there on page 1, 5th result. but hey, who gives a sh*t about bing.

    man i am so f**king depressed. i have wasted so much of my time on it, and yeah paid links are bad, and yeah fiverr gigs aren't gold dust, but come on man, why are google being such a bunch of c**ts!

    so i guess my question is, am i sandboxed? or am i gone forever? do you think it was the paid links that got me taken out? why won't google re-index my homepage even though it has re-indexed other pages on my site? it's my homepage itself that it won't touch...

    so is my site now worthless?

    sorry for the rant. i just feel crushed after working so hard, and to be honest i don't think i have done anything wrong. buying a few paid links is not murder is it. to$$ers. so it's fine to pay to be at the top of google through adwords, provided google gets its fu**ing cash, but spending 50 dollars on a few pr3s and getting some bookmarks is worth them kicking me out of their w*nky search engine?

    FU** GOOGLE AND F**K SEO. :)

    is my site dead now or is there any hope that it will magically return? even though this is a very negative and maybe childish post i would really appreciate any feedback... even if you give me a hard time and call me a b**ch. i would really like to learn how google has gone about fu**ing me up the a** and ruined my week.

    thanks in advance.

    When you go to your site, it won't load? Is that what you're saying?

    I read your post didn't really see you saying if it was deindexed or not.

    site:yourdomain.com on google does it show your site? if not then yes, you are sandboxed(deindexed)

    sandboxed isn't the same as deindexed.

    Sandboxed is when you are just isolated on deeper pages with very few moves.

    Deindexed is self explanatory

    Blah blah blah. "I did a bit of work and I should now be rich"

    Blah blah blah "The world owes me a favour"

    Blah blah blah "I didn't do anything wrong. *sob*"

    Blah blah blah "It's all everyone else's fault, especially google. *sob*"

    Blah blah blah "Why can't things work out for me"

    Get a f*cking grip.

    If you want to make something happen then make it happen. If you fail then it's YOUR fault. There is no "right" or "wrong". You either make something happen or don't. Cut the self-pity. The world owes you NOTHING. Not a single thing.

    Either go and make it happen or do something else, but don't make these ridiculous threads about google destroying your soul. How ridiculous is that. Google's a company that primarily provides a search engine. They're not here to make you money.

    If you want to run your business and get listed on google then you do it, but getting upset with google when you're not succeeding is like a little child who's throwing a tantrum because he can't get his own way.




    Google is a C O M P U T E R. Say it with me. C O M P U T E R.

    Would you like them to write in a rule that makes your site #1?

    Would you like them to maybe give you free #1 on adwords instead to say sorry?

    What do you expect? Why are they being 'cunts'? What if you're #1 and others are now not on page 1. Why are they now not cunts? Surely they're being cunts to your competitors? Or are you some sort of god that google's only a cunt unless they help you? Do you see how ridiculous your thinking is?


    Ahhh, look at that. A smile. There's hope for you yet. :)

    You're giving yourself a hard time. You're calling yourself a 'bitch' essentially. You've ruined your own week.

    The solution is really simple.

    Stop taking yourself and your life SO FUCKING SERIOUSLY.

    Who gives a flying fuck about some SEO results? Go out and take a break. Enjoy the sunlight. Enjoy the trees. Enjoy the sky.


    You blame google for ruining your week, but YOU ruined your own week. You know what I do if something like that happens to me? Nothing. I just get on with my day the same as I would have if something good had happened. When you realize that you're in control of your own happiness and not external crap then you'll start having success.

    To be honest with you I am doing everything I can now to factor Google out of anything I do, as using them as a basis for financial consistency is like pissing in the wind. You're only one algorithm away from everything going to pot.

    Dunno what's wrong with bhw these days.

    I got a nice -7 neg rep with "Be more respectful" for my post. A member with 282 rep, several quality posts and who is fairly well known gets neg rep'd for telling someone with 1 post to buck up and stop blaming everyone for not making money. Nice, good job. If that's not rep abuse I don't know what is.

    So telling someone to buck up and not take life so seriously is apparently bad.

    If you want +rep on bhw do the following:

    moan
    support moaners
    make stupid threads

    If you want -rep

    Give people honest advice that will help them

    So many rep abusers, it's just pointless posting anymore.

    How does "be more respectful" even make sense. What do you want me to do? Console him and tell him everything will be ok? What good will that do? The only advice that's going to help him is to tell him to cut the self pity and not take life so seriously.

    Go ahead and neg rep me again for this. There's a bunch of them that just +rep each other on a regular basis and they run around here policing members who are giving genuine advice by -rep'ing them into oblivion.


    I hope your -neg rep makes you feel good, because you know what makes me feel good? Looking at my affiliate accounts with large sums of money in them.

    Have a nice day.

    I didn't read most of those posts,

    it seems your domain is fairly young and google is evaluating its authority from different angle. This is called google dance. Trying to get out is falling deeper in it. Build backlinks slowly wait for some days build a little again. Within a month and a half google should have a clear picture of your domain and the dancing will stop by itself.

    Obviously BlueTurtle is speaking the truth. He is giving you and BHW a so called

    S H O C K E R

    You need to be shocked to stop being a whiny bitch and moan all day. You need to be shocked to stop procrastinating and start D O I N G something.

    BluTurtle is smart. He knows his shit and he is making money.

    Anyone who thinks he should be more respectful is wrong in so many ways.

    +Rep for Turtle. I remember he shocked me once... fucking best day of that week.

    Thanks, buddy. I do like when other people succeed and I only posted what I did because I could see someone in a position I and many others have been in at one time.

    The only way to deal with people in self-pity mode is some shock treatment. If you comfort them they'll feel a bit better but they'll still be feeling sorry for themselves.

    What they need to realize is they're being silly. They need to take a step back and laugh at themselves because I guarantee if they could literally step out their body and look at themselves acting all whiny they would be like "ahahah, lol wtf".

    I'm genuinely trying to help the OP and the only way to do that is by making him see how ridiculous he's being and laugh at himself.

    We all take ourselves far too seriously. Including me.

    Whoever was coward enough to neg rep BlueTurtle for keeping it real, should have their rep ability revoked. You have the gall to say be more respectful but don't have courage to confront on this thread? Go back to DP

    Blog networks are casuing alot of heart ache around the web at the moment. All you can do is start again. I have started again many many times in my career. If you dont have the ability to start again then this is the wrong place for you.

    The thing is you're never actually starting again. It's just semantics. The OP said in his post about how he learned that X and Y didn't work, so he's giving up.

    Someone with the success mindset would say

    "I learned that X and Y didn't work, so I took note of that in my journal and kept on trying new things".

    Keep a journal and keep a log of everything that doesn't work and you just can't help but succeed.
