    Amazon Germany. I was using a domain which is worth about 50k-100k over here. I did not have time to develop it over the years since I'm into automation and coding.

    Got Wordpress and WpZonebuilder, invested about 100 hours to add 15k products from amazon as well as related productions. Commissions started within hours it seems because of this domain. Google was eating up the URLs in hours.

    You know I'm not the guy who writes articles, I'm into automation and coding and database generated sites. Writing articles is pure horror for me.

    What happened?

    The Google Nazi Police banned my site from Google.de results. Reason, "copied content from other sites". They meant Amazon.

    This is just plain stupid. Do they really think I have time to write 15k unique articles for each single product? This is just crazy. I'm still happy with Bing/Yahoo traffic, I really dislike multi billion dollar companies like Google who try to force their rules on me. They are not God or Jesus. I developed sites in 1997 even before intelligence agencies founded Google or Fuckbook.

    I did "not copy content from other sites" it was all content from Amazon.

    Do you think it is really necesary to write a 1000 words nonsense article for each product from Amazon? Even if it is a handbag? Just for the sake of having an article so it will look unique for tje dumbshit German Google Nazi reviewer army?

    Dude. You chose to use Google. You have to play by their rules. If you don't like it, use another method to gain traffic. But don't bitch if you broke the rules and they penalized you for it.

    Billion dollar companies can do what they want bc it's their company. Do you think they care that you were making money from their traffic? No.

    Fairs are for tourists.

    First of all, don't get abusive with me. If you're mad, you take it out on someone else. You take that tone with me again and I will report your ass to the mods.

    Second, it is Google's traffic. People are finding you through Google, therefore, it's Google's traffic.

    Third, I don't play by their rules. I don't give a shit about Google. But if you have your website in their search engine and you break their rules, then you get penalized, don't complain about it.

    Life isn't about what's fair. You wanna campaign against Google, fine. But last I checked, this forum is a place of free expression. I don't have to agree with you, and you don't have to act like a toddler because I don't.

    Interesting thread. I'm sure you can recover from this by removing the duplicate content.

    I think you got a penalty for thin content.

    On the eyes of google you are not providing any value to their users, and thats true. However you can write short unique descriptions for your products and you can submit a site reconsideration.

    If SERPS are your main traffic source then you are missing a big part of the pie with google penalizing u.

    You already said your problem it you,

    your statement
    {Do they really think i have time to write 15k articles....}

    This was your duplicate problam with google

    if you dont make the effort into your work/ websites then dont expect success
    all google articles need to be unique or it flags as spam
    and you had 15k articles copys of course your ban it stright foward case

    You need to relise it not thousands of amazon products
    that make money, it the Quilty of the articles of a product that sells it

    one good product correctly explained can earn you thousands daily
    it how you promote it.

    You need to understand it quality over quantity.

    dont no why your paranoid about police services are u a x fraud prisoner or a unregistered business awaiting to go to prison for fraud

    Why don't you spin the content with WordAI or make some money through Bing/Yahoo and invest in renewing your content?

    Why was your domain worth 50k.

    Dont you use WMT, just do what it says and see if they'll let you reindex.

    It might have worth paying $5 to get a 300 words article or hire a freelancer... You should be able to get back on Google but might take time for them to review your website once modified

    Yeah you've gone wrong here. What you need to do is noindex your product pages and write content for your category pages and rank those instead. Write generic articles about a type of product and rank those as well in the same fashion as your standard category pages. Its a ball ache but you absolutely will have to write some type of unique content and short of writing 15k product descriptions this is about your only option.

    Why didn't you outsource the article writing? zero work and could've saved you from getting banned...

    Share your money with some cheap copywriters, it will be better than losing.
    Good Luck!

    Well you are probably right about one thing.
    If google is purely funded by the people's money through stolen taxes etc (which then get laundered into third party companies; like they do it in the arms industry), then yes it is "our" traffic, in that sense.

    Sorry for you though.
    I can help you if you want, I am from the same country as you, contact me via PM or skype.

    regards

    If you have a domain worth about 50k-100k simply hire a team of 5 amazon reviews expert and try to explain the situation at the google admin... with bing and yahoo if you are lucky you will have maybe 20% of the traffic you can have with google

    I have nothing to hide. Those 2 high priced domains are:

    http://www.handtasche.de
    http://www.handtaschen.de

    Which means

    handbag.com
    handbags.com
    /not owing those .com above but the German .de version

    Cheers, God bless you, thanks for all your comments. The Goo$$le banned content is still there but I'm really happy with the Bing/Yahoo traffic even Bing only owns 2% of market share in Europe countries. I'm about to completely ignore Go$$gle. Microsoft and Bing/Yahoo seem to be the key, they are NOT paranoid. And in the US they even own almost 30% market share. This is huge.

    With all that G$$le paranoia most people forget about Bing/Yahoo it seems.
