Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/14/14 9:36 AM
thanks for bumping my topic but how it conсerns the question?
Re: Manual Actions Lysis 5/14/14 9:37 AM
You asked if it's really manual action. I am going with "yes" as the answer.

If it's manual action, a human looked at your site.
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/14/14 9:44 AM
he saw a fixed site
he saw a blank page
and still it is pure spam :)
blind human ?

Re: Manual Actions Lysis 5/14/14 9:45 AM
Maybe. Guess not blind enough to penalize your 4 sites.
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/14/14 9:51 AM
lol
I got about 100 sites penalized with different content in one moment
only common thing was same software
same sites worked other software was not penalize
so it is 99.9% not human and not blind human

I am asking how is it possible to check the site really by human and get a reply from him
send 100 requests?

Re: Manual Actions Lysis 5/14/14 9:58 AM
100 sites at once? That's epic.

And yes, you must do 100 RRs.
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/14/14 10:07 AM
ok,no point posting questions here
Re: Manual Actions Lysis 5/14/14 10:08 AM
Happy filing!
Re: Manual Actions Ashley 5/14/14 10:17 AM
There's more than ONE person looking at review requests. If you have 100 sites, my guess is you're using the same spammy elements on many of them. Pretty easy to spot a network. It makes sense to flag 'em all. 
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/14/14 10:27 AM
if all network is flaged there is no point submitting requests for single sites.
the problem is I don't understand what spammy elements, there are a lot of similar sites in query using the same link structure.
hope to get a reply someday what to fix from the person reviewed the request

Re: Manual Actions Ashley 5/14/14 10:37 AM
Well - have you read the webmaster guidelines recently?

That's a pretty good place to start if you want to understand what your issues are. 
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/14/14 11:10 AM
yes I read guidelines recently, when my sites (some was online for 3+ years) suddenly was banned for spam
fixed some errors that might cause the manual actions on test site but it doesnt help.

>if all network is flaged there is no point submitting requests for single sites.

Pretty much true as you need to fix the underlying problems common to all your sites before any single site is going to recover. 
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/14/14 2:08 PM
yes I will galdly fix it , but it will take a lot of time
and if I am fixing something wrong and will get the same pure spam reply again then I should spend a lot of time to fix it again
the problem is I am not sure what to fix :(
Re: Manual Actions Ashley 5/14/14 3:56 PM
but it will take a lot of time 
Yup. That's the point. Great sites and good ranking take a lot of time and work normally. But once you've spammed (especially enough to get the notorious Pure Spam manual action), it makes sense that it takes some hard work to recover. If it was easy to spam and recover, there'd be no deterrent. 
Or rather, minimal encouragement to do the right thing. 
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/15/14 12:05 AM
thank you for reply
but I did not spammed anything,that is the problem
80% of my sites with google traffic haven't changed for about a year (only video updates)
some of sites are online for 3+ years without any changes (only updates)
so it is hard for me why all my sites was banned in one moment after years without problems

it would be easy to fix if I really spammed and it is hard when you don't know what to fix :(

Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/15/14 1:55 AM
requested the review several hours ago

Not Found

The requested URL / was not found on this server.

Hi awm777x
If there's no content on these pages, there's nothing that users would be missing by lifting a manual action. If you'd like your reconsideration request to be processed, you really need to first have unique, compelling, and high-quality content of your own on these pages (not just rewritten, spun, autogenerated, or otherwise reused content). 

Cheers
John
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/15/14 7:11 AM
Thanks JohnMu
Unfortunately on adult sites its almost not possbile to have my own copyrighted content shoted by myself in such ammounts.
99.9% of adult sites are using affiliate programs content that is given by that progams to promote there sites.
I have content from a lot of that programs sorted by niches and popularity and don't understand why some sites are still in query and my sites are all banned. :(

Re: Manual Actions StevieD_Web 5/15/14 11:42 AM
>Unfortunately on adult sites its almost not possbile to have my own copyrighted content 

as a viewer of adult sites I would disagree.  There are sites that publish ONLY their own works or buy exclusive rights to material produced by others.  Those unique content sites do quite well for the long term in the search results.


>99.9% of adult sites are using affiliate programs content that is given by that progams to promote there sites

and 99.999999% of the adult sites to whom you refer to are not in the Google index for very long.


>don't understand why some sites are still in query

Don't worry.  Next week (or tomorrow) the sites you currently see in the search results will be gone, replaced by a newer version of the same duplicated content crap.  Your whole industry of affiliate content marketing p0rn sites is considered a churn and burn affair, with none of the sites having much long term success.



The solution to your problem is pretty simple.... develop your own content and publish the same on a single domain

could you give some samples please
Re: Manual Actions Ken Rohrer 5/16/14 8:26 AM
When users click on an image or link are they taken to other websites or are they taken to original images located on the same website?
Re: Manual Actions StevieD_Web 5/16/14 8:41 AM
>could you give some samples please

Playboy.com
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/16/14 9:23 PM
LOL
if I would like to open a shop then you will give http://www.walmart.com/ as example :)
playboy earns money because webmasters like me promotes them
www.playboywebmasters.com thats how it works
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/16/14 9:26 PM
there was a trade traffic as on a lot of sites of this type but I removed it
reply to manual actions takes about 1-2 hours
bot just checks my site and sends me reply


Re: Manual Actions StevieD_Web 5/16/14 9:40 PM
>playboy earns money because webmasters like me promotes them

Nope.  Try again.  Playboy has earned money because for the past 60 years because every 18 year old in the country has purchased a lifetime supply of centerfolds.  It is their good/proven name that allows p0rn marketers to continue the tradition of lead generation.

In other words, brand first, money second.


Where/what is your brand?  Amazon is a brand.  Playboy is a brand.  People specifically seek out those brands and they products they provide because they trust and value the brands.    Do people seek your site out specifically or do you gain your traffic through accidental visitors through search engines seeking the products you offer and your site just happens to match their query?

If you had brand specific traffic, no matter how significant any Google demotion or penalty may be, your core customers would still seek out your site.

Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/17/14 2:03 AM
It is very strange to compare webmaster to a huge corporation like amazon playboy etc.

And we are not talking about how playboy earns money.
We are talking about online here and playboy sites are promoted by webmasters like me.
Re: Manual Actions Abbot John 5/18/14 11:11 PM
is it really manual.
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/19/14 8:31 AM
when it is _really_ manual it takes week+ for request
I got auto ban reply in 1-2 hours :)
it was autobanned and all manual actions is automatic
dont understand why they can't rename it.
Re: Manual Actions Ashley 5/19/14 9:44 AM
I have no idea what you're referring to you - but you do not know the mechanics of a manual action. If it's a manual action, the site or sites have been manually flagged and will be manually reviewed when you request a review. Period.

As for me, when it comes to porn sites - you have to offer something unique. If you can't produce content, fine. But what are you doing to make the experience better? Do you have additional features? Good ratings on the vids? An active community? A robust search function? Fewer/less intrusive ads? Only a certain tier/quality of videos? Any specialty?

You can't just spin stuff that you don't own and expect to do well in any niche, let alone one of the most competitive. No one is picking on you - spend more time figuring out what you can do that's better than anyone else and executing on that than claiming unfair treatment here.

thanks Ashley but I think I know the mechanics now. This acions are not manual.

When I am sending 100 request at one time for all banned sites, I am getting standart auto reply in 1-2 hours for all 100 requests.
If I will try to put different software (same content) to one of banned domain names than I am not getting reply for several weeks. maybe someone will check my site manual someday. :)

Sites was just banned for using some type of software, banned by bot and called it "manual actions"
And it doesnt matter what is on site, is it good/ bad/ spammy.

some of my domains were removed from google querry 3 years ago, it means it was not possible to find the site manually in querry and ban.
Now all my sites are "manually" removed and I see doorways bannerfarms with 10 popunders replaced my sites.
there could be 2 explanation IMHO.
1. google doesnt care about quality.
2. the guy who runs doorways in query have friends in google and pay them

about offering something unique I explained here https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!searchin/webmasters/89.vc/webmasters/JdHHZS-jmDc/6clZIDWnpi4J

Re: Manual Actions Jenny H SEO 5/22/14 7:52 AM
Just guessing, but if your site is crap, it doesn't take more than a few seconds for a manual reviewer to look at it and say no. That's likely why you're getting such quick responses.
Re: Manual Actions awm777x 5/24/14 4:59 AM
sites are not crap
ok then why I am not getting ANY responses on the site with same content and other software
