It's like World War 3 out there. Appreciate their quick updates.
And an update:
Crazy. Strongest evidence yet that this is manual
We all knew google had people trawling forums etc, now we know they have a strategy to beat all our best efforts, seems that like many organisations as they grow they like to maximise profit and minimise effort this requires getting rid of small guys and concentrating efforts on helping big guys, This is bad for everyone in the long run as soon prices go up etc.
It is important that we keep going and if attack based SEO works maybe this will at least let them know it is a fight not a capitulation.
Let me Hi Jack your thread a bit but is it worth getting any links form them ...
LOL. WHY DIDN'T YOU PUT A SIGN ON YOUR SITE SAYING "WE ARE A BLOG NETWORK".
and just to be clear, not that it matters, ALN lost 25% of 23,000 sites.
I guess the take away point here is to not use SEOHosting.com...
Think it's still safe to be using HPRS?
Hard to say for sure... but the couple of sites that I used them on heavily are beginning to recover a good bit, so I'm assuming they are moving the links to indexed blogs... its a good sign to be sure!
I believe this the only network that has actually had a backup plan in place, and they are taking action as we speak.
I do like to keep an open mind though, and tend to block about anything that blog network owners say as it is usually bullshit (obv to cover their business) unless other members can provide info.
this is manual de-indexing...i don't believe google can do this algorithmically...too many false positives...
When HPRS started they had EVERY site of theirs on the SAME IP.
This came to light and people complained, so they said they fixed it.
Now it has come to light they were using SEOhosting, which might as well be the SAME IP.
If that's not enough of a redflag to stay away, I don't know what is.
You're telling me a 'company' who made these basic noob mistakes, have a backup plan?
In terms of deindexing, yes.
They added a bunch of new domains.
In terms of the private aspect of the network, no.
About 3 weeks ago, one $10 blast of article on HPS got one of my sites out of sandbox, using footprint, I found 70 of articles indexed within 1 week.
Now when I search for that footprint, I find 3 indexed articles, out of which 2 domains are now parked. 1 article is live. What can I say, HPS was a good network, which gave me good results on 3 sites just for $10 per each, but I'm not sure how it is now... I'll try to test later
Remember that just before the recent blog network carnage, HPRS closed their network to new members and at the same time 'claimed' that they weren't affected by de-indexing.
In the last few days, they now claim that half their network is de-indexed. Something doesn't add up.
There are many similar experiences across the forums.
Just check the ezine articles traffic, they've been hit very bad:
there might be paid mole from google in these high pr network and also the forums like these it is impossible for google to use algorithm
The monkeys at google can't program a decent algorithm. So they are manipulating the SERPS by manual intervention. Way to go google!!
That's exactly what my point which I have been expressing in other threads already ... there's namely no question in my mind that our forum's best 'twists', 'tricks', 'strategies', etc ... are THE inspiration source for Google's best skilled apes ... who in their turn are sent to manually shut verything down, which among others have been mentioned here.
I wouldn't also be surprised, if some of those high-skilled apes had made it up into the Executive-VIP regions of this forum.
Not surprised at all.
I posted a theory about private blog networks deindex in HKSEO forums, i will just quote my post here in order to tell me your opinions about that
Sorry, don't read posts of someone that can't capitalize I.
