    Hi Everyone,

    If this is not the right place for this thread I kindly ask moderators to move it where appropriate.

    Here is my experience with this article blog directory.

    I applied to it the same I did to 100+ other article directories. What is different about this one is that they take a complete article from your website and put it in iframe and automatically interlink your content within their website.

    The result for me has been that they over-ranked me for my own keyword and my article was removed from Google SERP-s where it sat steadily in +-30 position.

    I logged in Blogarama, clicked on Remove Website and it was removed immediately, which I verified manually with my own keyword search in Google.

    I am now waiting to see how long will take for me to get my positioning back.

    My advice to everybody would be to check if your website is listed there and take immediate action to remove it from Blogarama. You may also wanna check your keywords to verify if they have been taken over by that website or not. There might or might not also be a duplicate content penalty involved with all of this.

    Anyway, take care all,

    Regards,
    Zatoichi

    Yes. This can be used as a weapon for weaker websites. I, however, think it is much better to invest the effort to upgrade your website.
