    Hi,
    I have a question about one of my new sites which got penalized with the message pure spam, the website was 3 weeks old with fresh content and no backlinks. I hope you guys can help me and give me a better understanding on why this happened? :confused:

    Well I never usually create websites like this but i have seen a lot spring up lately and thought heck, why not would be a nice bit of money on the side.The website is - http://apex-hacks.com/ it was going to be a multi-niche site which has mobile hacks on it.

    I got a writer to write this post for me - http://apex-hacks.com/pixel-gun-3d-hack/ checked it via copyscape and all was fine so I published the article on my site, a week later my site got dexinded by google with the message pure spam in the search console:
    [​IMG]

    Bearing in mind this was a fresh site with no backlinks and just one article which was Copyscape passed. Could this be something to do with the article or do you think google is getting clever and it getting to understand hack niche sites?

    What would everyone recommend so I don't get caught in the future or maybe this niche just isn't for me...

    Thanks for taking your time to read my thread and I hope I can get some helpful answers :)

    From what i have read, hack niche sites (even new ones) get reported multiple times by competitors and get manual penalty very quickly. I would advise to find a different niche.

    Google has been targeting hack niches since last year, but this fast is unheard of. If it is a new sites then just back up the whole website and move on to another domain.

    Better that way.

    Google finds them pretty fast, although rarely that fast. Competitors reports speed up the process, but they aren't needed for Google to detect a typical game hack site.

    It's pure churn and burn, you can't avoid getting caught. The question isn't if, just when.

    You are in the hacked niche... you are going to get hit.

    Clone the site, put it on a new domain. Let me know if you are using wordpress, i'll link you to a tutorial and a few other things to do, to have your site back up quickly.

    Short term niches lead to a destructive competition which isn't afraid to loose their own sites.

    Edit: Checked and you didn't change the subject matter looks like a fresh domain after all. The pure spam has been slapped on a lot of footprinted PBNs lately. What CMS did you use?

    No idea why people still bother with hack/cracks via SEO. I tried it a year ago. One site got hit in 2 months and the other one was hit within 2 weeks without even ranking. Plus shittons of uneducated trash kids in puberty who have nothing better to do besides reporting and neg SEOing competitor's sites. If you are at least a bit serious about SEO, then do yourelf a favour and avoid these niches like a plague.

    @Nargil, yeah but what about Clash of clans Hack?

    Or [Insert popular game] + hack?

    Don't you think Google doesn't give that much of fuck for hack niche?

    I mean it's not like they wouldn't already know to spot them.

    Can't they just choose to deindex a given set of keywords with "hack" to avoid any future hassle?

    Jesus didn't realise they would get reported so fast, maybe i'm in the wrong game..

    What keep all the content and just reupload to another domain? Won't I need fresh content as google will know my sites already been penalized?

    I'll give this a go then, maybe i'll just churn and burn it then, buy some sape links directrly to the site and hope for the best!

    I used Wordpress bui just never seen a site get penalized so quickly!



    Thanks for all the replies! :)

    Yep base on my experience it won't matter, have done it numerous times. But if you are paranoid, you can rewrite them since it is only 1 page of content. Good luck anyway.

    Well at least this explains why the "hack" keywords are such low competition, Although at $40 + a pop someone is still making a killing with them
