Default All Of My BMR Articles Have Been Deindexed - The Game's Up

I have just been going through all of my BMR articles to see if they are still indexed, and they all seem to have disappeared. Even though it may say they are indexed in your account, if you manually check yourself either by clicking on the binoculars button or searching for the title of each article in quotes, you will see that none of the articles are anywhere to be found on Google. I have checked around 50 articles so far, new and old, and I haven't yet found one that is actually listed in Google.

It was good while it lasted, but it's hard to see how BMR can come back from this.

Do you guys believe this? I was chatting with my friend a couple of minutes ago asking what the deal is. He believes that they are shown as "deindexed" because obviously BMR is high on the radar at the moment. And so its protecting the posts/backlinks from Google. Similar to ArticleRanks. We never see where the backlinks are going, but the sites are ranking up.

What do you guys think?

Well my rankings have absolutely tanked for numerous keywords, so it's either a penalty or a result of all these links suddenly disappearing, or both.

Ha, no, they are always trying to "do something", but I agree it's a bit surprising they hadn't targeted KNOWN services like BMR that were also well known to WORK.

Part of it is I think that they do not like to go manually looking for networks to hit (other than as warning shots, which this may well be), they prefer to improve their algorithms to the point where they can recognise "real" links and discount "gamed" links totally algorithmically, or with the minimum of human intervention. Otherwise it's just not scalable for them, it's like a game of Bash the Mole, new networks pop up too quickly to deal with.

Sorry mate but your point of view here is seriously flawed. We are not talking about BMR showing posts as not indexed inside the dashboard. When you make a search in quotes of any sentence you sent to BMR you will see that no results turn up. Means all of them are deindexed.

If, on the other hand, BMR did this themselves somehow (which is very, very, very unlikely), how is it different than posts getting deindexed? Sadly, seems the game is really over for BMR...

First of all, it's not MY point of view. I said from a friend.

Second of all, he's talking about the ones in quotes where you type in Google.

Link schemes - Webmaster Tools Help

"However, some webmasters engage in link exchange schemes and build partner pages exclusively for the sake of cross-linking, disregarding the quality of the links, the sources, and the long-term impact it will have on their sites. This is in violation of Google's Webmaster Guidelines and can negatively impact your site's ranking in search results. Examples of link schemes can include:

Links intended to manipulate PageRank
Links to web spammers or bad neighborhoods on the web
Excessive reciprocal links or excessive link exchanging ("Link to me and I'll link to you.")
Buying or selling links that pass PageRank"


What does BMR stand for? It's not really surprising is it? Especially given what happened with other things such as ALN.

We've been saying it for weeks now - Private Blog Networks like BMR are in trouble.

The problem is they are not 'Private' at all and the quality just isn't good enough to pass as natural links on natural blogs.

Kind of makes me glad I wasn't using BMR. Mostly cos I am a cheapskate, but also I prefer to use under-the-radar services, or mix them up heavily. When something is as successful as BMR, well, you could say too much success is always going to backfire eventually in SEO.

I had my fair share if words with BMR when they started rejecting every
second post I made and I was a paying customer.

So I cancelled my membership in Feb and took my business elsewhere.

I'm glad I did now I see this type of shenanigans going on

Google is not silly

True. But lets be honest, who doesnt. Is seo gaming the system in general whether it be paying for links, building them etc? I commend you for creating sites that are valuable to the searcher and offer good quality content that people link to.;-)

Just a tip guys and making it better out of a bad thing....save the posts that you uploaded on BMR, they should be original content again and you can use them on article networks like ezine or buzzle or just add them as content to your site...

Go into 'projects,' 'view domanin' and there you have the option to remove all your links from the network.
Its a little late for me, but I will do everything in my power to clean up my site's link profile in hopes that it comes back eventually. Its my first real site and do not want to just give up on it.

Thanks. That might be a good option for anyone who's rankings tanked. Opt out of there and see if you get lucky on the next update.

I checked my friends BMR account (he posted 900 times between October and December.) All wiped out. What a thorough destruction this really is.

Ok on a more serious (??) note... wait 1-2 weeks and a ****load of "I lost all rankings" threads are going to be popping up here. So many backlinks wiped out, so many penalties to come.

I hope there won't be any penalties... It's very easy today to harm a competitor by throwing bad links at his site intentionally. There's no way to defend if this happens if Google decides to penalize the pages targeted be these bad links...

I agree with Markowe about BMR been a victim of their own success. Just a few weeks ago every second thread (exageration) was about BMR. Very difficult for any network to stay under the radar when the biggest IM forum in the world is plasting their name everywhere.

I don't think it is the end of blog networks though! I'm using a network right now that is built similar to BMR but because they are under the radar they have not been affected by Google's wrath.

Networks should have a limit of how many people can join. The less people join, the less it will be talked about, which will help keep it under the radar and out of Google's sight.

I've haven't liked relying on a single network or backlinking method for some time, I found it dodgy that people were basing their SEO strategy on BMR alone, though I must admit, I didn't think they would get hammered this badly. It's not enough for a service just to "work", it's got to STAY "working".

For easy keywords I just mix up random services, simple as that, never use the same BL profile twice. I had a similar thing happen before - I had some rankings that were largely got using AMR and they all dipped, some of them disastrously, in the October Panda. Course, I can't know for sure it was the AMR links got devalued, but I ain't risking that happening again anyway.

For easy keywords I just mix up random services, simple as that, never use the same BL profile twice. I had a similar thing happen before - I had some rankings that were largely got using AMR and they all dipped, some of them disastrously, in the October Panda. Course, I can't know for sure it was the AMR links got devalued, but I ain't risking that happening again anyway.
That's the thing people don't understand... diversity is key! It's easy to fall into the trap of sticking with what works but unfortunately that logic doesn't align with SEO... you need to stick with various proven methods not just one!

Strange thing is: before blog networks became all the rave I relied heavily on Web2.0 properties because they worked and what is strange about it is that this technique hasn't died... it is still as effective as it was a couple years ago.

The problem with software programs like AMR is that the directories don't last, many are deindexed, and this could be the reason for your loss in rankings. But as with most things SEO, we can only speculate.

Hate to say it but frankly, it's the end of the road for them.

I got out a long time ago when I saw the direction it was going (getting too saturated).

Always wanted to tell the admin (John) that he should close the doors even as long ago as one year back, but hey.....what business closes their doors to more and more customers?

More than the fault of saturation, which left more tracks, is that the sites on their networks simply do not look like a website the casual web surfer comes across. This is why competitors can easily point them out, notify Google, and get them de-indexed.

Its a little late for me, but I will do everything in my power to clean up my site's link profile in hopes that it comes back eventually. Its my first real site and do not want to just give up on it.
Are you saying that deleting the project will delete the links?

If we delete our links right now, will it save our websites from being deindexed in the upcoming days or is it already too late?

Has anyone sent a support ticket to BMR to see what their response is?

Google wouldn't deindex your site but they will penalize it as has been the case with many over the last month.

DEindexing is the most drastic action that Google will take and for it to happen you going to have to be engaging in some really dodgy tactics.

Can anyone confirm if this is true? I'm trying to decide whether I should remove all my links from BMR.

IMHO, the damage would be done already. Sure, as a general rules all rats should probably flee the ship. However, if you're not exactly sure what will happen to your rankings, think twice.

The might still be counting Yahoo/Bing for example.

I think it's safe to say links from de-indexed domains won't HELP anyone in Google. They might even be poisoned. Worse, if all of your links are from 'poisoned de-indexed blogs' I'd probably pull them real fast and say a quick prayer to Mercury (aka Thoth, the God of written words and search engines)

It might be enough to save you.

BOOM! There goes BMR. Sucks for them but I've been waiting for this for a few days now. All of the posts I've made are now de-indexed from what I can tell, I'm sure as hell not gonna spend the time going through to check each one :P

I've kept a fairly diverse link profile and I've used BMR sparingly but I still wonder if there is going to be penalties to come. I love my little niche site portfolio but I for one am DEFINITELY moving away from this model and into something far more sustainable.

Check their blog. They're going out of business...

I'm not allowed to post links, but they're closing down. All of their domains deindexed...

Hey everyone, looks like it's official:

BuildMyRank.com – Link Building Service Featuring High Quality One-Way Backlinks It’s Been a Great Run!!

Good of BMR to address it and quickly. I know there were a ton of rumors recently, but I'd checked as recently as 4 days ago and our BMR posts were still there, indexed, etc. Not the case today.

Hey guys, sadly I have to report this is not a rumor. Just put up a blog post, but it appears that Google has wiped out a large portion of our network the last two days. We still have many sites left, but not nearly enough to support ongoing demand.

BuildMyRank.com – Link Building Service Featuring High Quality One-Way Backlinks It’s Been a Great Run!!

Right now we're going to close up, and figure out our next steps, and let clearer heads prevail. Still think there's an opportunity to pivot, and turn BMR into a higher quality, more focused offering. But this cannot be done overnight for sure, and will take some time.

Yes, we've always been honest. It's unethical to run a business otherwise, but until yesterday we hadn't experienced anything out of the norm.

I wish I had seen this post before I wrote 15 posts this morning. You would have thought they would have disabled the posting feature on the site.

So, Now what? Any suggestions?
