    I reported a site for spam and now 2 weeks later it´s only at #8 while it used to be #1 for YEARS.

    Its kind of a fansite for a huge franchise - but not the official site.

    So no matter how much promotion you do for a website... If it´s got a high spam ranking it will never go to #1 ! Even if you have PR5 or higher backlinks, they wont be worth anything if your site got a high spam ranking!

    You can also call this dynamic backlink value depending on the spamranking of the website you link to !

    Enjoy this revolutionary find!

    Any proof or supporting link of your Revolutionary Find or is it only from your experience?

    The main problem with SEO is information overload. Topics like this, gurus and WSO-s. As long as you dont provide proof - your post is backround noise. If you provide proof, then your finding becomes valuable to others

    Its probably through here that he reported it:
    https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/spamreport?hl=en_GB

    However since this IS Google we are talking about, and since you need to use your webmasters tools account to report I wouldn't use the account linked to my websites to report a site. Also I wouldn't use a completely inactive google account either..

    Also this method is NOT White Hat!

    Probably BS. People could make thousands of accounts and auto spam-report competitors sites then.

    I just reported someone that stole all my niche keywords by tracing my hosting IP and build his own made for adsense websites and some of them rank even higher then mine.. I filled a report for paid links which is true and gave a lot of details on how he operates .

    Let`s see what happens. By the way, I used my adsense account for this.

    I`ll let you know how it goes.

    You guys do realise that the "SPAM" sites you're so eager to report could be sites owned by people here don't you?

    Not the way to make friends and influence people round here.

    I think your idea of white hat is quite different to what white hat means in this forum.

    These reporters sound like a bunch of cry babies that can't compete in the real world. Seriously, running around reporting sites is your SEO plan for success?

    The reporters need to grow a pair, take lessons from successful tactics and understand rules were meant to be broken. Nobody in SEO is 100% white hat and everyone has skeletons in their closets. If you know what you're doing you'll see no top ranked website is following ALL OF THE RULES. The rules are BS and professionals know it. Natural link building is an oxymoron - it doesn't exist! If you think it does then build your best site, spend your whole day adding content and see how long it takes for backlinks to build on their own or naturally.

    To quote George Carlin: It's all bullshit folks.

    To the snitches remember anything you do to others can be done to you. Grow TF up.

    A big part of "Black Hat SEO" consists of Spamming, so if you want to do this and harm websites (supposing it really works) you are just in the wrong forum.
    Don't forget that by doing this you can harm a Fellow BHW member's website.

    well, I have a question for you:
    You reported it just once, or did you report it from several different accounts?
    How many accounts reporting it did it take to move it?

    If you're saying with just one report of spam, you knocked the site down, I'm gonna say that was a coincidence.

    ...But just in case, I'm gonna go report wikipedia for spam... ;)
