Google Spam Action to my NicheJet Site
« on: July 23, 2013, 06:53:49 AM »
On May 28, 2013 i signed up for a NicheJet Web Site  http:// CreativePhotographyIdes. org.

Everything worked as expected. Just two days later the site was ready, 1st article written, the first of hundred posts received. I am really satisfied  with the efficient work of the NicheJet team.

Only about one week later my site ranked 33 on Google and 24 on Bing (AccuRankTracker), what a nice surprise and it continued this way.

My understanding was that i would not touch this site for about 2-3 months, no adsense, no affiliate, no design changes. I compared to Joshs sample gardening site.
 
July 5, 2013 what a bad surprise: Google WMT informed, that this site has little or no added value and applied a manual spam action. Actually i am not sure what this really means. They propose reconsideration and possible revoke of the manual action after updating the content.


Since then the site ranks around 270 (Bing still around 15-25). About 90 domains with around 940 links are established, the number of visitors is fairly mounting from week to week. So everything nice - everybody happy? Not really!


Some ideas, suggestions and opinions are very welcome.

It sounds like a manual reviewer decided they didn't like your site. Over 50% of NJ sites have ranked in google at some point and we have hundreds of NJ sites on our own servers with no issues.

This is just part of playing the google game. With as many sites as we create, this is bound to happen to one here or there. Shoot me an email at josh@jlaffiliates.com and we'll add a few categories and make a couple small adjustments that might help you get reconsidered.

It sounds as if you stepped on somebody's toes and cost them ranking position.  So they reported you to Google as a spam site, which resulted in a human viewer.

I would suggest having Honey Jo write you six-ten quality articles on creative photography and add them to the site using the page function.  If this is not a niche which she is comfortable then she might be able to recommend another good writer to you. 

Add a few of them to the site, then contact Google and tell them that what they saw was just a holding page while you created content for the site.  Assure them that you have additional quality content being written that will be added over the next few days or this month.

If they look and see you now have some quality they may reconsider.  But if they do be sure you add additional quality articles every few days for a month or two in case they check on you again.

Or you can do what I usually do when this happens.  Buy another domain name and clone this site to the new site.  Then take all content off this site and place a "Site is being redesigned, please check back in a few weeks" sign on it.  Then let the domain name expire.   This is the cheapest way, since in my experience Google seldom ever reconsiders once a human reviewer has taken a dislike to the site and domain name.

Josh, excellent support and help! Many thanks! Now lets wait and see for a while what happens. I will add some specific  content in the next few days / weeks. And of course start to monetize...

Later I ask Gg to reconsider and revoke the spam action.

Nevertheless I already ordered two more NichJet sites!

Edseward, many thanks for your suggestions. I will follow - more or less and step by step - your ideas.

Josh and his team made some strong modifications and adjustments. Now lets see for a while to what incredible heights this site will climb....   ;-)

Just FYI, we have a very small handful of customers who received this message from Google (less than ten of orders numbering in the thousands.) After the very first report of this we took action and started adding more categories to all future sites, an image to the homepage article and we will soon be adding a video to all homepage articles as well. Since we took this action, as far as I know, we have not had anymore reports.

So put those suggestions in place if you get this message and then ask for reconsideration. If you would like us to do it for you, please let me know at josh at jlaffiliates dot com and I'll get you connected with our team so they can do it for you.

P.S. Thanks for the support, Joe. :) And glad to help. If, for some reason, they do have a problem with it still, let me know. We'll build you a brand new site free of charge to replace it. I don't expect any new site to get flagged like this.

Josh,

It happens to the best of us when we knock some competitor off the first page and they complain to Google.  If the Google reviewer looks and sees what they consider to be thin content they will usually flag the site.  And thin content is whatever the reviewer decides it is.

I have had sites with 10 quality articles, images, great videos, etc. manually downgraded by human reviewers after I knocked a major player from one of the first three spots on Google.  I've found it is a waste of time to ask for reconsideration as I have never had a positive answer from it.

So I simply buy a new domain, move the content and try to rank for the lower five places instead of the first three places.  Then a few months later I will try to move it up, after the new site has had time to season.  I also don't place ads on the new site for five-six months after I rank it.  Generally the new site will stick if I take time to move it up in the ranks instead of ranking it within the first month and keep ads off until the site is five-six months old.

A new domain costs less than $10, so it is not worth a lot of time worrying over a domain once Google hits it with a manual downgrade.  Just my opinion, of course.

So I really don't think it had anything to do with being a NJ site.  I suspect he was reported by a competitor and a human reviewer ignored all the secondary content and based everything on the front page of the site.
