    Hi
    Today when I looked in big G for a keyword I was targeting I saw a website who wasent on the first page for the last few months in the #1 position. After I clicked on it - I see it said this website has been suspended.. in other words there was NO content on it at all (besides above message)

    So why would it jump to the top like that?

    The only reason I could think of is that once the website was suspended the IP was changes to hosgator IP (or nameservers) and google ranked it because of that...

    Still intresting to me... What's your thoughts??

    Thanks

    What type of niche is the site in? I wonder if the lack of competition may be one reason it is ranking.

    Search for " watch movies online " and you will see a .tv result on the first page. When you open the site, it has nothing but a notice from the department of homeland security.

    The reason why such a site still ranks so high in the serps is because it has TONS of perfect anchor text backlinks pointing to it. It has soo many backlinks that google just can't ignore that and has to rank it high in the serps.

    Check the backlinks to the website that you were talking about agag2. And btw, account suspended page also comes up when the hosting account has been suspended until the owner pays for the hosting. It is a blue background page usually. Google gives you like 2-4 days to fix the issue. But, if you do not fix the account suspended issue in 2 days, goggle starts taking you down in the serps.

    You have made an interesting observation and not sure anyone has called it at this point except maybe daserpent. Since human eyes dont rank it, the lack of content doesnt matter. It really shows a weakness in googlebot, but not sure what. The IP address has change in this case, but doubt if that is a factor.

    May be a coincidence. What does the cache look like?

    Can you give us the URL?

    Hey guys this is the site:

    Code:
    http://www.movies-links.tv/index.html
    Is that for real??

    I mention the site name because it has been taken down and outing it will not be affecting anybody's income.

    I also wonder how generic squeeze pages, with 3-4 lines of content like "WARNING only 20 copies left of anxiety relief" Enter email now!"

    Achieve rank 1

    Might be the above mentioned site getting more traffic and hostgator suspended that blog for the usage of overbandwidth. Might be possible.

    Well, question resolved: In the site appears a message of "inmigration department" and afencys like this,saying that is closed for copyright laws...
    probably the site reaches this spot some days ago and then detected and closed...
    or perhaps it's a warning for all the other sites that could be closed by the same question...:eek:
