    We all here those on this forum telling us
    what we should do and not do with google.

    One Big Lie we have heard is submitting
    will get you kicked off - below Google
    tells us the story.


    Fiction: Advertising on Google affects my rankings in the search results.
    Fact: Advertising with Google neither helps (nor hurts!) a site's rankings on Google.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fiction: Joining a link exchange or "free-for-all" link program will boost my rankings.
    Fact: Linking schemes do not increase a given site's PageRank, and will often do a site more harm than good. Many sites that advertise link-sharing programs not only offer little value, but will distribute your email address without your permission, resulting in an increased volume of unwanted mail to you.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fiction: Automated "ranking checking" programs are a good way for webmasters to save time and measure their "online presence."
    Fact: Automated "ranking checking" programs violate Google's terms of service. They use server resources that should be spent on answering user requests. We strongly request that you not use rank checking programs to check your position on Google.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fiction: A competitor can ruin a site's ranking somehow or have another site removed from Google's index.
    Fact: There is almost nothing a competitor can do to harm your ranking or have your site removed from our index. Your rank and your inclusion are dependent on factors under your control as a webmaster, including content choices and site design.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fiction: A website will be removed from Google's index if it's 'over-submitted'.
    Fact: We do not require submission nor do we penalize sites for 'over-submission'. You are free to submit as often as you wish. However, given the nature of our inclusion process, your time is better spent improving the content and links of your site.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fiction: Sites are not included in Google's index if they use ASP (or some other non-html file-type.)
    Fact: At Google, we are able to index most types of pages and files with very few exceptions. File types we are able to index include: pdf, asp, jsp, hdml, shtml, xml, cfm, doc, xls, ppt, rtf, wks, lwp, wri.

    Lets hear your thoughts on this

    And You believe Google? Well why not, I guess they have your best interest at heart? <sarcasm>
    I suppose just submitting in itself won't hurt you. However, one scenario that proved out awhile ago is that submitting a site map to an obviously spammy machine generated site, often hastens being banned.
    I'm talking about a site with 10,000 pages with an obvious link structure created by known programs.
    But hey! I don't care if anyone believes it. Just go right ahead and keep doing what you want. Less competition for me if google drops you right way!

    Have a nice week!

    Hey brittany46

    Good come back. I figured that this snippet i posted would trigger some debate as everyone just loves Google.
    Are you always so bright and chirpy? I have read allot of your posts and you always have one or two nice little chirps in them.

    Anyway you have provided a good point that should help others out.

    'submitting a site map to an obviously spammy machine generated site, often hastens being banned.
    I'm talking about a site with 10,000 pages with an obvious link structure created...'

    These are the seeds that are needed in the forum as it will help others.

    Keep em coming!

    Isn`t that what the content club and rssevolution do? I don`t know about that software generating 10,000 pages, but maybe a couple of hundred wouldn`t raise a re flag. Any thoughts?

    Yes I guess that is what all content generators do. And as far as size, I was just using that as an illustration of a spammy site. My point was about submitting your sitemap to google. I just don't think it is neccesary. You can get the spiders there other ways. I don't know about size. I know some BlackHats do huge sites and are pretty succesful. I guess in theory a "real" site would start out small and then grow. Maybe you should emulate that. I don't do any particular size site. I worry more about getting lots of links and link "velocity", the rate at which you are getting links. I forget were i picked up that idea....maybe at bluehatseo.com.
