Hello everyone, I have worked more than 2 months on a website, buying SAPE links, web 2.0, social signals, Private Blog Posts etc... So I was #12 at this time, so I just needed a little boost, so I had the wrong idea to buy few more blog posts. It worked, but few hours later, my links dropped from #8 to #50. So I made a thread about it and most of people said that it was a Google Dance. But I knew it inside me that it wasn't true. So I waited few hours and I received a message from Google Webmastertool. "We detected an artificial system links redirecting to your site. Buying links or participate in link schemes in order to manipulate PageRank is a violation of Google's Webmaster Guidelines. Therefore , we applied a manual action due to spam mywebsite.com/ . Other actions can be applied to all or parts of your site." :headache: At this moment, I knew I was fucked up! So I had an idea : I had a website that I bought recently with a PR2 and 4 years old. (Really nice website for PBN) So I decided to create a 301 redirect to recover my ranks. So I moved all the content of the old website to the strong new one. For now, I'm waiting for some news in my ranks... Iwill let you guys updated about this story. What do you actually think about it? Will I recover my ranks? Did anyone tried 301 after a penalty? It worked? Please let me know.
