EzineArticles blacklisted from Google?

Hi,

I recently heard form a local internet marketer that EzineArticles and a few other article platforms had been blacklisted from Google for having too many spam links and spun content and if we were to use them it would negatively impact our site.

Does anyone know if this is true??

Thanks

    I've personally seen no evidence of that. I own stores that have links from ezine and they aren't being negatively affected.

    That said, I think incoming links from sites like EA carry little to no value now-a-days, so don't waste your time creating unique articles to post at places like that.

      Ok great thanks Dave. Good to hear it hasn't impacted your sites. Perhaps it's just a rumor...

    It won't effect your rankings negatively but article marketing through those submission services are a thing of the past. Social Media and Web 2.0 Properties are the way to go these days.

      Web 2.0 is also becoming saturated with spam because of those pyramid links.

      Yes I'd also heard this and was wanting to try the Web 2.0 route. Many Thanks

    Whether it's true or not, i've yet to see any viable benefits to posting on EZA nowadays.

      EZA has been a non issue for a long time now.

      But blacklisted?!?!?!?! A simple google search would have given you the
      answer, don't you think?

      Sometimes logic goes a long way...

      No offense, but I wonder why people start a thread with a nonsense
      question....

      And asking here if EZA has been blacklisted from google, IS a nonsense
      question.

      If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

        Lol, thanks Paul.

        You hear something so is better to check it out if you want to be sure, and where better to ask than the Warrior forum for these kind of questions...

        Yes I obviously know it still comes up on Google, my question was if it negatively impacts your site to 'post' there.

        Doesn't seem to be relevant anyways as is an old strategy now but I recently came across a backlinking strategy that employs EA as a Part of it and wanted to know if that part was still worth doing and will have the desired impact rather than a negative effect on my website.

        From everyones comments it seems not which is a relief anyway as I really wasn't looking forward to the process!

        Thanks again for your reply Paul

    EZA is basically nonexistent in my niches, but they aren't 'blacklisted.'

    If Google blacklisted any sites, than in that case google remove all pages from indexing. But i check google indexed 4,910,000 of ezinearticles.com. So, how you say blacklisted. Can tell me how we check the website is blacklisted by google or not.

    Actually Google is targeting links from ezinearticles for unnatural warnings. Take a look at this thread: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!searchin/webmasters/ezinearticles.com$20sample$20urls/webmasters/N44KKpr8YAY/CMBYRNBdVT0J

    You will also see MANY other examples of this on the internet. My site also received a warning and they told me about my ezinearticles links. So be cautious.
