Google de-indexing sites using AB
« on: May 25, 2014, 09:04:53 AM »
I have over 200 sites using article builder.  Over the past week, Google has been de-indexing the majority of them because of spam content.  The ONLY thing we do on these sites us use AB to build links to an authority site using your recommended settings.  We only build articles every 3 days.  We have built NO incoming links to these sites.  Clearly Google has figured out the your footprint and is no de-indexing based on the use. 

Be warned.  We are killing all remaining jobs to try and salvage some - but I am sure Google is already on top of that..

None of our AB sites are being deindexed. Do you keep all of your sites hosted on the same server or on servers hosted by the same company? That is a *huge* footprint that indicates to Google you're out to spam their index.

Also, what do your sites look like? Are you using custom graphics, a nice theme, putting the proper legal information on the site, a contact page, etc? If you're just slapping AB content onto a basic blog without making it look "nice", then once a Google employee sees that they will find your other sites and often deindex them as well (especially if they also look spammy and aren't customized and obviously professional created). That doesn't have anything to do with the AB content, but with the quality of the site as a whole.

I have sites with AB content on them, they are all indexed and they are ranking (with some links behind them).

As Jonathan says - there must be some other reason...

Yes, as a customer and big user of AB content we are seeing no issues.

That's not to say it can't be happening but I would be looking to other sources. How are the sites linked, how do the sites look - are they credible? Do they have signs of some kind of reason for existing other than being part of a link farm?
These are issues, unrelated to Article Builder, that we learned to tackle many years ago but most people building link farms still do not understand.

Content is only one part of the picture. If I were Mr and Mrs Google and I had decided to take action against low quality content then I'd have other targets lined up before Article Builder. ;)

BUT if one's sites are of low quality then the presence of AB content could be a factor in the decision making process and I can think of a couple of reasons why that might be so.

Another possible challenge is having all of one's sites hosted with the same web host and/or on the same IP.  Do you perform some basic optimization to the content like adding sub-headers or adding useful meta data?  If you have over 200 websites and are following the same "routine" with each one, then it isn't difficult for multi-million dollar equipment DESIGNED to foil such activity to, well ... foil such activity.  Mix things up.  Add a unique look, sound, and "feel" to each site.  Pablo Picasso was a talented artist made famous because of his unique and recognizable style.

When building websites, "recognizable" is not your aim.

Hope that helps.

Oh that's really great. The Picasso one.

I always consider not "leaving your mark" as an essential aspect of spun articles or content. If you have a memorable expression, well, that may be a give away.
