Google Proxy Hacking and Duplicate Content
Thanks to Article Underground member Aitch for bringing this great article by Dan Thies on Google Proxy Hacking to my attention. It explains what it is and how by getting proxy sites indexed with web content from our web sites, it gets them indexed by Google and therefor creates exact duplicate content. Google sees this and penalties and all kinds of problems may occur. mAINLY, THE PROXY OFTEN BUMPS YOU FROM YOUR TOP RANKINGS! oUCH!
I’ve had this happen with my sites in the past. In some cases when notified of the offending malicious proxy, Google removed them from their index. But this was only with intentional malicious indexing of hijacked content. Google still lets some of the proxy sites get a free pass and allows the content to be indexed.
Well, I could go on explaining it to you but Dan’s article does such a terrific job I will let you go over there to read up on this disturbing subject.
Do you want to effortlessly add new pages with fresh content to your web sites???If you are a member of Article Underground, then consider contributing a blog for current AU members to post in! It’s easy!
I thought that it’d be a good idea to let you know about the many advantages that you will receive when contributing a blog(s) for fellow Article Underground Members to announce their article pages in.
If you have any web sites that are already indexed by Google, they would be perfect to contribute to our pool of 80+ member contributed blogs and growing so that AU members have more places to get free links. You’ll gain some benefits which I will point out and explain.
AU also offers 33 premium “announcements blogs” that are reputable and high quality. The number keeps growing!
