Hi, I think I have really messed up with Google. I created 2 new sites about 5 months ago and concentrated on really great unique content. I was pleased with the way things were going and Google seemed to agree. I then did a couple of (in hindsight) dumb things.. 1. I used to own a forum that got loads of spam comments over a few years unattended, it was in a similar niche so I redirected the forum to my main site and thought no more of it until recently. I then started to wonder where my traffic had gone, checked WMT and found there were 350,000 backlinks pointing to the forum that was redirected to my main site. The backlinks were all spam comments from other spam forums and blogs. 2. I purchased a few domains from Godaddy which seemed fine. I redirected the purchased domains to my other main site and thought no more of it until recently. I then started to wonder where my traffic had gone, checked WMT and found there were 950,000 backlinks. The majority of the backinks were from just 2 websites which had my purchased domain in the footer of every page. Great for traffic.. So did I just do a double SEO suicide job on my 2 main sites?
