I’m taking a bit of a gamble here with this post, I’m not sure how relevant it is writing about what not to do, now that even Build My Rank has been sandboxed by Google thus making it clear that it’s still a bad idea trying to pull a fast one on Google.
You can all over the web read about what you should do if you want to make money online, but it’s not that often that you can read about what not to do.
So heres a post on what not to do.
You might think that you have found the holy grail to make money online, but the idea is old and has been abused beyond recognition. Which means that Google know about it and sandboxes sites and blogs that uses them, so in plain English DON’T.!
Such idea are click circles, traffic circle, link circles / link wheel, traffic exchange sites, just to name a few of the schemes that are out there.
Do you know them, then drop a comment on your opinion, if not keep reading.
Click circles are without any doubt the fastest way to stop making money, because you are robbing all the businesses of their money.
It’s very simple you find xx number of blogs and websites owners, that all has ads on their site. Within this circle you all are bound to visit the other members websites and click on their ads. In other words you are making click fraud.
Publishers may not ask others to click their ads or use deceptive implementation methods to obtain clicks. This includes, but is not limited to, offering compensation to users for viewing ads or performing searches, promising to raise money for third parties for such behavior or placing images next to individual ads.
Google sees these scams the same way as if you click them yourself, it will have only one consequence and that is your account will be banned and the domain black listed by Google. This means that neither you or someone else that on a later date will be able to get advertising / Adsense on it again, in very blatant cases no one on your address may have an Adsense account.
Another think I’ve been seeing is stuffing more then allowed 3 ads on any giving page on a website, by using frames, but I’ve also seen a lot of them getting caught doing that thereby getting them self banned.
So don’t you will get caught, just ask the thousands that has been banned.!!
Traffic circle works on the same basis as click circle, but here you get traffic instead of clicks. Thus creating false traffic to you site, that is a part of what Google uses to give your website a certain spot on the search results.
Doing this actually get you hammered twice.
This false traffic will get your websites sandboxed, meaning that you will be removed from the search results or “just” dropped to page 100.
This in itself is a big punishment because all the real traffic and clicks you had are now gone.
You can with a lot of work, get back up, but the second punishment is that your Adsense account also will get banned in other words killing your website.!
Use third-party services that generate clicks or impressions such as paid-to-click, paid-to-surf, autosurf and click-exchange programs.
The same goes for traffic exchange sites.!
The next couple of things is not directly linked to your adsense account, because they are still schemes with the purpose of getting you higher on Google. They are linking schemes such as link circle / wheel, and they have been used by private sites as well as media companies and sold to customers. there are in fact both media companies and private blog owners that still try to use them today but it’s a waste of time.!
What you did was got free blogs where ever you could get them, posted articles on them that you got from article databases with links to your website. basically you spammed the web with new sites that had no value what so ever, beside linking to your website. Thus conflicting with the rules about double content.
When the sites was indexed on Google you just kept adding a new article once every one or two weeks, the idea was it gave you more time to do the real link building in the mean while.
So before you try anything funny, check up one the rules Adsense set by Google
Have you used any of these schemes.!!
I got the idea for the post by reading Zac’s post on BMR got sandboxed
