In a latest tweet google's Matt Cutts said,

"In fact, we took action on several thousand linksellers in a paid-link-that-passes-PageRank network earlier today"


Google once again fired it's gun on private high pr blogs . Are you a victim...????

These are not "private" blog networks. I would classify them as "semi-private" if you can buy into them.

Any time you join a network you risk getting pounded in the a$$ by the big G.

Build your own network and you will be fine.

To be honest they are barely even semi-private. Most of them give out reports with the networks domain in them... HUGE FOOTPRINT.

I never understood how giving out reports was a footprint. I mean, if google was manually infiltrating these networks, report or no, they can easily send the links to a new domain and then monitor which site links to it. Report just makes it a tiny bit faster for them. Or am I missing something really obvious here? :S

He may be talking about networks like Sape.

Some of my private blog network websites just got deindexed. Unique, high quality content with external links, images, different hosts...

Ummm...got a few of mine de-indexed as well...what is odd is that they were on shared hosting not seo hosting, had nothing to do one to each other.

All others on SEO hosting appear fine. For now...

Well, im not gonna name people but some networks on this forum actually upload the reports onto Google Docs, not only that the heading in the document is "Thanks for buying high pr network links from XXX", you can say what you want but im pretty sure google keeps an eye on these documents.

Paranoid much? I'm confident Google don't track down networks like this ;-)

We can all be sure SAPE is safe though. Since its only like "smaller" networks targetted in this. There is a few more than thousands sites in SAPE.

How many sites?

7 out from 35.

I've created a spreadsheet with all the data to find out why that happened.

It has nothing to do with content in my case. I've had websites with unique content de-indexed, while websites with spun content are doing just great.

What was the problem then?

I was abusing site-wide linking to the SAME sites. I simply left too much footprint for google. I knew that I'm leaving a footprint, it was just the best cost-effective method to boost more than one site. Now, it seems like we won't be able to do that.

All other sites that are still indexed have 1 (rarely 2) external links and they are fine. Atleast for now...

I removed all the links from these sites and restored original content from the archive.org. Let's see if I can bring these sites back to index...

I mean SAPE is safe from the targetted actions against networks like in original post. After the big update, sites who consist 100% of SAPE might not be safe.. And maybe they only choose to devalue links. Who knows.

I beg to differ. Sape is not safe from targeted actions as every single sape seller needs to put a certain code on their website to display links. This code connects to sape's system and voila we have a footprint.
