Google Penalty Update
As you can see from the graphic above, things have gone from bad to worse. Since my last post, my blog has suffered more penalization from Google. The big G!
I tried to tidy some things up that were suggested to me. Resubmitted my blog for reconsideration. Google replied that they found “no manual spam actions” and suggested that there were a whole host of other possible reasons that may be responsible for the dip in my rankings.
By the way my PR ranking has dropped from PR4 to 3 too. Aaaaaaarrrggghhh!
I asked a friend of mine, Internet Guru, Luke the “Puke” Hardiman, to have a look and give me some advice. You can check Luke out at New Release. He said the obvious, and something that I should of picked up on; that I was linking out to my affiliate “s*x toy shop”. I had done this unwittingly and out of excitement.
Anyhow, stupid mistake. Or, at least I think that this was the mistake. Went through old posts and tried to clean up as much as possible. Nothing to do now but wait and see.
Very frustrating, because Google won’t actually tell you what they don’t like about your site.
This is dire, dire, dire.
