    He Guys,

    So here is the deal.
    I was running an affiliate website with no marketing(< no adwords nor blackmarkting technique) and a unique niche and I had a round 200 visitors a day and 50.000 impressions on Google. It's just a site that links to other sites(affiliate). With some costum articles (50.000 products and around 5 costum articles haha). The domain and the website is just a littile less then 6 months old.

    After 4 months I got this message: (around 4 weeks ago)
    Your website, violates Google's quality guidelines.

    I was like wtf and now? And yep 2 days later, from 200 vistors and 50.000 impressions, down to 5 IMPRESSIONS and 1 vistor (lol), so I was doomed. I then changed the templated and removed every affiliate related thing, contacted Google to reconsider (I just added a thing said underconstruction) and the denied. After this I typt unique articles and changed the theme again. After few days of waiting (little over a week) I contacted google again and yep again, denied!

    Since I'm in a pretty new niche all alone I can't just simply change the URL (PR3 in less then 6 months, not bad right?) nor the content (I made a good set of money with how it was setup). So I'm a little lost now on what to do?

    I think I have 2 options:

    Sell the domain (< is this still worth the money?)
    Put everything offline and set a welcome message on for over 6 months and contact google again
    Leave the niche and move on

    These are my option, that I could think of, which I hate (all of those) I hope you guys have any tips left!

    (I hate to say, sorry for my english but I'm not a native speaker and writing a whole lot of english isn't my daily routine, and I have dyslexia.)

    Create a new site with a great design and 3 quality articles of 500+ words on equal EMD domain. Apply to Google AdSense, get accepted and then 301-Redirect old site to this.

    Problem solved imo!

    i think its the affiliate products on the site ?


    Lol not a bad idea at all but not were I was looking for.

    I have an other idea:
    Redirect the site using dns(domain forwarding) to one of my .info domains with a normal blog and information. Write some stuff about the content of the redirected site, let google index, then contact google and pray ?

    Btw anyone out ther who knows how this reconsider plan of google is working ? Are there humans doing this ?

    Edit:
    An other idea. Buy the same domain name only with a different domain extensions, transfer everything tot that hosting and profit ! ? Not the ideal solution but not bad either way...

    Fix the problem that you are violating and file a reconsideration request.

    Giving up and selling the domain (for nothing now it isn't ranking) or doing a 301 is silly.

    Heck, if you are gonna do a 301 just give me the domain.

    Well that's the point my whole website is an affiliate website and that is violating the rules, so I need to change it to something completely else ?

    Since March of this year Google have tightened up cosiderably on commercialization on websites.
    Part of the chages they made back then were mostly to do with "data capture" and using PPC for DC squeeze pages, however, they also have a commerciality score that relates how much you offer the visitor in relationship to the commerciality of the site.

    If you are marketing 1000's of products with just 5000 words (so what - a couple of words per product) I'm guessing you have blown that part of their algorithm out of the water. In fact bits of it are probably orbiting over the Pacific as we speak.

    Redress this balance issue and submit a reconsideration request.

    Other possibility is you are promoting stuff they will not allow you to promote with their PPC (anythign "porn" link - most gambling stuff and a few other areas)
