Eza de-"indexing"? UPDATE: Yes, they do.

12 replies
Does anyone know if Eza de-indexes your articles or something after they suspend your account? I recently had an account suspended for a silly reason (a mistake I made) and my article views/clicks PLUMMETED. I searched for my articles in Google to see they weren't even there, when the day prior they were, and these were zero competition keywords, so it wasn't like I got buried really. Any idea what this could be about?

    have they removed your articles entirely? EZA doesn't do the indexing, but it the articles have been removed then Google would de-index after a few weeks.

    I was suspended a while ago and the articles were still up and running. Just do a search for the articles and you will know for sure.

    If you were using the Google search on their site, then yes, they do index your articles - well, kinda.

    That's a custom search engine, I use one on my site...and you have the ability to re-index the site based on xml files or site maps whenever you want. There are a ton of other options too - I would suspect that if your account is suspended, they have someone who would take your stuff out of their index file.

    Every day I check the obituaries. If I don't see my name there, then I know it's going to be a good day!

    Do you receive any type of warning before they suspend your account?

    I am glad I read this, I use EZA a lot! that is quite scary and rather annoying. Luckily, every time i have posted a problem article (genuinely by mistake, only 3 times) they have simply asked me to rectify it.

    What I am curious about is how easily they reward people with expert author status! I imagine it's purely so that folk are more tempted to stick the Expert Author logo on their own site or blog. Or is that cynical?!

    I was very chuffed when I go my first expert author award, albeit I did know quite a bit about that subject, but it was still a nice surprise.......but then I got another award straight away after one article and it was hardly rocket-science type stuff. It demeaned my first award!

    Sorry that was a bit off topic! Just thought it showed that EZA has many odd little idiosyncrasies.
