While I take your point, I think, the site we're talking about is hardly cosmopolitan.com, in terms of authority (in any sense of the word), traffic, metrics and the like. Second (and this is probably more important) the niche I operate in is extremely conservative, for the lack of better words. It could not be further from anything sex or health related, so that's the vantage I'm coming from.If any editors from Cosmopolitan are reading this they can PM me about making a contribution to the site.
1) It was my private network PBNS
2) I also used some bought ones.
It was my ones that were an issue (as they got de-indexed - roughly 55 of them)
Still trying to work out what caused what as there are actually a few different causes I think.
If anyone is grouping their PBNs together on the same IP address or even same C class (xxx.xxx.xxx.0) - words simply cannot express the FAIL. This is literally the simplest thing to detect, if a money site is getting the 5 links from websites on the same IP address or c class - it’s clearly suspicious.how many would you group together?
Just read this as I'm about to purchase a TB solutions domain and stopped, could it be possible their domain network is being watched by Google now? I have bought over 4k worth of domains from them in the past year without any issues.3) I bought an existing domain from TB solutions. I restored some web archive content. Did NO linking out. Added to a webmaster and it immediately got a spam content penalty.
The site looked decent, which is weird.
- no spam in web archive.
- no spam in backlinks
