Is the "spammy thin content" google ban caused by low user signals?

    Hey i got banned once but i had google analytics so they saw all details related to user signals/experience

    I mean it lowered a lot till i got banned. like single session from average3min to 30secs.. do you guys think that user signals are the reason?

    Thin Content means you probably had poor content, copied content, or not enough content. If it were your visitors bouncing that wouldn't have been a manual penalty. A bad bounce rate may cause Google to LOOK at your site, but there is no manual penalty for simply bouncing too much. Bounce rate is calculated in the algorithmic portion of Google and will hit you there, NOT in the form of a manual penalty.

    Yes. Absolutely. Google designed the most sophisticated AI the world has ever known. Guarantee you it can essentially read and tell if something is poorly written. They are LIGHT YEARS ahead of copyscape and grammarly.

    Ofc they are. But why then tiered link building still work even if people put spinned content there.

    It does effect them. If you make a PBN as a T2 and fill it with shit content you will get hit there as well. This is why some people can't rank anymore. In tiers it may be less harmful because you are posting on large sites rather than you own domain that can get hit individually. So a post won't get manually slapped, but probably does lose much of its link juice. People try to get around this by using MANY shitty posts in the back tiers, and this works... until it hits a toxic level, where they then hit a wall and don't rank any higher that that point. Or they get slapped. This is also why churn and burn methods don't work as well, and why filtering GSA spam through web2.0's and 301's don't work as well either. The game has changed. Google is using content quality as one of its main qualifiers.
