Hey, a Site of mine has received a 'manual spam action' by Google. Message I got in webmaster tool: Code: http://www.mysite.com/: Site quality Google has detected that some of your pages may be using techniques that are outside our Webmaster Guidelines. As a result of your site having pure spam, Google has applied a manual spam action to mysite.com/. There may be other actions on your site or parts of your site. Would it work to 301 the domain to a new domain or would my new domain also get affected? The 'manual spam action' is not for unnatural links so I guess it would work? Also on the new domain I would remove the 'techniques' they are talking about, think I know what the problem is.
