    I've always been told spammers will get penalised by google. Is this really true?
    Over the past few months I've seen a couple guys spamming this sh*t out of literally every site in my niche including mine and gets the top space for the most popular keyword.
    So around 3 months have past and they have been number 1 spot for close to two months... Does this mean its a myth that google demotes spammers and the myth was created by spammers so they can go on and carry on what they're doing while we are to scared to attempt it?

    they were using shortened urls and not their own if that makes a difference.

    Sometimes it work and sometimes your site will get totally deindexed or sandboxed doing so. I have tried this with an 2 y.o website and it was working just fine while when I do this with new projects / websites they get deindexed. It depends also how the spam links are build and where.. if you get them all from Adult and Pharamacy sites you will get more bad then good :)

    So this also means that some one can spam using your url and you will most probably get deindexed? but if you're lucky google will throw you to #1 like those lucky sobs. I still wont do it though.

    As Ruth said sometimes it may go good but once they are caught they will be surely penalized or will be blocked

    it works only temporary. the risk of getting penetra-- ahhh i mean penalized is of course high.

    except this site has lots of authority. i have one authority brand website (3 years old) which survived lots of neg. SEO. I am talking about 200k shitty backlinks. This website is still in the Top 5 for a few keywords after several google updates. The authority must be the main reason why it didn't get penalized.

    What I'm about to say is probably not the MOST OBVIOUS answer that you're looking for.

    You're probably looking for reassurance that whatever plan you're thinking of doing is the right way to go.

    Well, you have to remember that just because a lot of people in your niche have been getting away with spamming your niche, this doesn't necessarily mean that the party will continue forever.

    You see, Google is evolving so quickly that it is scary.

    It's evolving like a virus, seriously.

    There's no telling what kind of penalties it will impose in the future.

    A lot of the things that work like magic now are simply going to stop working in the future.

    The best advice I can give you if you are truly serious about being successful with any kind of online publishing is to focus on building a solid brand using quality marketing strategies and practices.

    That's the bottom line and if you're kind of unclear as to what exactly that means, let me just boil it down for you: add value to people's lives.

    That's the bottom line.

    Whether you're interacting with your audience members on social media or you're publishing content on your blog, always add value.

    Eventually, the cream will rise to the top.

    Right now you might think that spammers are just dominating your niche, but believe me, this is going to be temporary.

    Don't think that Google is sleeping.

    Sure, you can make quite a bit of money in your niche now, but you really don't want to flush your brand down the toilet by engaging in spam practices that may be penalized by Google in the near future.

    A little bit of long-term thinking definitely pays off in this game.
