Blog Network Backlinks *poisioning* sites

Hey what is up,

I posted another thread, but I think this questions is more spot on.

Recently have had a really hard time keeping new sites from getting slapped. Now, it could just be dances. But I have never seen new sites just plummeting like I have recently.

It usually starts happening when I start adding networks links. I am using ALN and blog blueprint.

Has anyone else noticed this.

I currently have a bunch of offline clients and I am not sure I want to be using these networks on their sites anymore

    Same thing has happened to me and dozens of other people on this forum. Stay away from ALN for a while, especially if you are using on clients sites.

    Since you mentioned 'sites,' do some A/B testing. Build one without blog network links and one with. Then observe what happens.

        I dropped out of ALN but keeping everything else the same for now.

        On a side note it does appear negative SEO is working right now.

        One of my clients had 1,000 exact anchor texts spammed to them in 1 day, and they completely fell off the map.

        Take it how you will,

    I don't think it's 'blog networks' on its own causing all the problems. Maybe the backlinks came from articles that weren't spun right (gibberish) or duplicated? Or maybe the landing page is a big factor too.

    Id say it might be ALN. Blog blueprint should be fine. Why dont you run blog blueprint for a week or so and see how it goes?

      Imagine if there was a small penalty applied each time Google de-indexes domains from a blog network.

      I'm NOT saying this is true, just theory crafting here.

      Anyone that's building links to de-indexed (or soon to be) blogs is surely trying to game the algo, and I wouldn't be surprised if something like this is happening.

      With that being said... It probaby makes sense to build links in places that will NOT get de-indexed.

      Say you have 2,000 links from ALN... 1,500 get de-indexed, that's already enough links lost to feel huge effects... But if a penalty was applied in addition to natural drops, well it would hurt a lot more.

      Any blog that GoogBot has to de-index is automatically low quality, that's a near guarantee at this point. So why not?

    Were you varying anchor text of the links? If not, I'm not surprised you got hit.
