    That's interesting. It sucks that they are gonna remove pages temporarily but at least they told you what was going on.

    I'm assuming that you verified that the message was indeed from Google?

    Doorway pages are those pages which are highly optimized for some keywords and they show one content to searchengine and other to regular visitors. Regular visitors often get redirected to other source for example CPA offer or anything else.

    Interesting, seems the Search Quality Team are doing their work, but what makes you believe it's because of using tags ? They are referring to cloaking, and doorway. I believe you're using some kind of redirects in your autoblog.. .

    No cloacking or BH methods have been used in these blogs except of auto blogging.


    Actually I read deeper into the links theys sent in the mail.
    Each page which is highly optimized for a keyword (like a tag page on a blog) and with content which is not related to your main website topic, is considered gateway page for google.

    when my RSS feed in the autoblogs syndicated feeds it created new tag+dedicated page for that tag and post.

    They say that users enter these pages with unrelated content and then surf in the blog to reach it's home page which is on a total different issue.

    i like your 'fake' keyword cloud
    you should've made the links the same color as the rest of the words

    i would've taken that down if Google came to my page


    it looks like you might've done cloaking since your
    title tags that are indexed for the homepage are
    seo directory submission service search engine social link bookmarking
    but on your site they are different

    Google normally doesnt tell ppl anything

    If they did ...do you think they will send you a detail report of your whole site? :rolleyes:

    you have over 1000 backlinks to your home site..and you have no PageRank

    I'd say that's a strong indication Google also penalized your home domain

    Ignore the 30 days thing, your domain will be permanently ****ed from now on.

    Reconsideration is a load of wank, I'm sure it works in some cases but unless your domain already had good age and rep it's not worth the time and effort of writing a good letter to Google then having to rebuild many more links just for the same power of a non-rep damaged domain.

    Just my opinion as an amateur BH. Someone said you only have 1000 links, that's nothing so just rebuild on a new domain.

    Tags? you clearly broke big G rules so they will kick you back now I will move on my next project at this point they are very likely to deindex and even ban ur domain save all the stuff u can and move forward I had 2 domains banned 2 yrs ago and even today they remain banned despite all my efforts to ahve them reindexed they wont be back on G so why bother being obedient to G when u can milk them on a next round under a new ID?
