    Hi everyone

    I have bought small numbers of posts on blog networks in the past, even though I read people's warnings on possible consequences. The effectiveness of the technique makes it hard to resist. I am currently working on building my own network which I will keep secret and only use to promote my own sites. However, I am curious as to just how serious it is when a blog network gets deindexed and you still have links back to your money site on there?

    I have used the search function and read most of the threads I could find about blog networks. There are plenty of people saying how risky they are but I can't find a report of exactly how bad the consequences are.

    So for example, lets say for your money site you have a 10 year old domain name and a reasonably white hat back link profile with say 200 referring domains showing in majestic seo. You then buy 50 posts on a blog network for this site. The blog network then gets deindexed by Google. What would you expect to happen to your money site? A decrease in rankings? A penalty of some kind? Your money site gets deindexed even?

    Can someone with direct experience of this tell me how bad it actually would be?

    thanks

    Had the similar situation.
    Even less deindexed domains, 20.

    Website is nowhere to be found for 2 months, and there is no message in Webmaster tools as of yet.

    Lost my rankings exactly when penguin stroke.


    I am now working on my own blog network, already have 5 running, PR7-PR5.

    do not worry about, there is not site on the whole Internet which has ONLY innocent white links, actually one of the im marketer doru friend analized sites after the g opend the gate of the zoo (penguin, panda) and found sites ranking with links from deindexed sites. Also by checking her own sites, found that g regulary crawling it. Wy on earth would crawl a deindexed site? The are many scaremongering going around, do not fall fot them. Get more social signals to the site, build more links (from varied platforms, varied anchors and generic anchors as well mixed with naked ulrs).

    Home Page:
    If your site is not backed up by other good links, you're on dangerous state.
    50:200 ratios is bad IMO.

    Anyway, that's why link velocity is important as well as keywords and links diversity.


    and how many total backlinks you got?

    If it's 20 of 30 links you've got deindexed, I'm not curious your site get lost in SERPs.

    So the risk is specifically that your money site gets a penguin penalty at the next update due to too many deindexed sites in the backlink profile? If the deindexed blogs only make a very small percentage of your total link profile you should be ok, but if its over a certain threshold you get a penguin penalty and drop from the SERPs?

    I guess this makes it important to regularly scan the list of blog posts with scrapebox to check for indexing and then to attempt to have links removed if the site they are from has been deindexed.

    Yes, the key is ratio I think. If you have majority of white-hat looking contextual links in your profile (again variation here, should use as much variation in anchor as possible, LSI, generics, naked urls, not-clickable-url-as-plain-text, etc.), then few so-called bad links (links from de-indexed networks) won't harm. It is not anything new poped up just post-penguin, it's somewhat eternal - nothing is perfect, if there's much good than bad, then it's absolutely fine !

    My site had about 200 links.
    10 wikipedia references.
    2 press releases PRweb

    I never expected few lousy de indexed domains would crash it :(
