I’ve often considered Google to be much like a credit bureau.
They look at every imaginable condition and apply a positive + or negative – mark for each, and end up with a final “credit” score that they apply to your sites.
This is your Google Credit Score and it comes about through a very systematic approach.
By setting your site on their “desk”, you’re essentially asking for a loan and the Google Loan Officer is going to run a quick background check to determine whether you qualify.
So, here goes. Here are some possible things the Google Creditor may watch for:
1. New domains – Age is important. New, fresh domain names receive only limited love.
2. Questionable TLD’s – Certain TLDs attract spam. .info domains, for example, are inexpensive. Cheap, in fact. And, the money-conscious blackhat marketer has purchased hundreds of thousands of these domains at 99¢ for the purpose of spamming the search engines. There is speculation that Google *might* give a minus mark for certain TLD’s, such as this, but the verdict is still out.
Personally, I don’t buy it. But, that’s for you to decide.
3. Too much, Too fast – So, sir, you have written 500 new articles on ‘Viagra in the last 24 hours, eh? Very impressive. Let me give you a Gold Star!”
It often amazes me to think about. I’ve made similar poor judgment calls myself many times in the past. But, Google is in the business of indexing quality content. If you want on their good side, do NOT post a 500 page deep site in 5 seconds and expect to not wear a big red, written-in-lipstick sign on your forehead that says, “SPAMMER!”
Anyway, I’m going to have to end it here as I have a lot of work to do. There is a new video coming out later today that will cover all the udpate changes to WordPress Cloaker.
Oh yeah, there is an update for WordPress Cloaker coming out within the next 24-hours with lots of new features…
P. S. I’ve really wanted to write an article on the Google as a Creditor for awhile now, so I’ll plan on adding to this article over time… I know I’m leaving it hanging there a bit for now.Tags: Aged Domains, Content Dripping, Domains, Google
