In this case study I will show you exactly how I got my site back from the dead…
For most people, when you mention the word Panda or Penguin they think of zoo animals and to be honest that is what I first thought when I heard of them. However, Google has turned these fluffy cute animals into search engine terrorists, attacking legitimate webmasters all over the globe.
Mention the word panda to any SEO expert and he’ll shudder as the colour drains from his face. Yes, they are scared of these two animals, and they should be! If you cross these animals, they will take your business and flush it out of the search results, leaving scratching your head, questioning the internet and of course Google, this is why teams like the vision smash usa today try to beat the Google Panda.
What happened to me when Google showed they hated my site?
- I was penalised and my site removed from Google
- I lost $80 a day, with just this site
- I filed a reconsideration request with no luck
- I had to completely change my business model
What this case study is about…
- You will not need to buy a new domain
- You won’t be doing anything that is seen as blackhat
- You will make google love you again, I promise
- It’s pretty easy to do. All you need to do is copy what I did
In spite of what you hear, beating the panda by simply buying a fresh domain and using a 301 redirect is not a long-term solution. Sure, it may work for a while, until the 301 redirect passes the penalty on to the new domain. Alternatively, until the issues that got the old domain in trouble have the same effect on the new one.
You’ve worked hard to build your sites and your business. Don’t play Russian roulette with your income by putting a questionable patch on the problem. Do you really want to be moving your sites from one domain to another every few months?
How Do You Know If Google Doesn’t Like Your Site?
Google took manual action against my site as they hated it that much, and quite honestly I am glad they did take action! I probably would not have built it up and, of course, I would not have written this case study. Lots of affiliate marketers out there are running scared, losing money hand over fist while trying to get their sites back into Google.
I am no longer one of those webmasters. I am now sitting back and enjoying myself, while everybody else is running around like headless chickens.
I have a solution. Well, its more of a case study. I was hit not only hard, but I took a catastrophic blow to four sites, and I had a new client get hit hard (nothing to do with me.) Google didn’t just shunt them down the search results, but drop-kicked them completely out of the search results.
My Google analytics looked like this!!!
As you can see, that is a fairly big hit. The site in the case study was earning around $80 a day, the traffic was nice and steady. It was actually on the up and I had just started expanding the site out. I was getting quite excited by the prospect of this site getting more traffic and making more money. And then Google deindexed it.
In this case study, you will see every single bit of correspondence that was sent between myself and Google, and you will see exactly what they had to say.
Having any website tumble quickly out of the search engines is devastating no matter how little or how much the site was making. It is very hard to stay calm and focused when you need to make rational decisions, and you really need to listen to what Google is telling you.
There are a lot of website owners out there who are saying that filing a reconsideration request is a waste of time, and is just the final nail in your coffin. I disagree. I have to say working with Google is the way forward, and those webmasters who say it doesn’t work are obviously not bright enough to work out what the problems are with their websites.
I am now sitting back and enjoying myself while everybody is running round like headless chickens
In this case study, I show exactly what I did and how I dealt with Google, and I also talk about what I think will happen, and the measures I take to protect myself and my affiliate empire.
If you take a look above, then you will see the site that is in the case study is presently back in the search results and also got its page rank back.
I have over 200 sites, and I am pleased to say that only 4 or 5 of the sites took a hit. I have, at this moment in time, got all the sites that were affected by the update back in the search results. They are earning money again, and doing fantastic.
This case study is only $17. I really do hope you take on board what I tell you and that you get your sites back from the dark depths of Google.

Makes a refreshing change to see someone actually tell it like it is Danny. I like how honest you are and the case study is proof that you can get your sites back in Google’s good books without relying on any sneaky, underhanded methods. Which is just as well, cos anyone going down that route will no doubt be slapped by the next Google update.
Watch out – the Google Shark is coming, lol
I get so sick of people putting out products on theory. People that haven’t even tried the method they are touting. This product is DIFFERENT because you actually did what is outlined in the PDF. The proof is right in there and anyone can follow those exact steps to get their website back into Google – even after a manual review has de-indexed it. Thanks!
So where’s the pic showing the return of traffic?
The traffic is still on the increase we had to shed around 2000 pages so this is what has caused the traffic crash. Once we have added more content and done the necessary tweaks then the traffic will be back to where it needs to be.
Rod Beckwith says
Like Ramon said….where is the traffic? Should have had plenty of time to recover by now….
You would have thought that but as I said removing over 2000 pages we have effectively had to start the site again….
Ron@Private Leable Rights says
Looks like a interesting product. Have you seen pages returning to good ranks again?
I never took a hit till a few weeks ago and only a couple pages, odd update it seems. Has it been a strange one or is it just me?
Curious if you’ve been recovering.
The site has been absolutely destroyed now….. Quite clearly been attacked by someone and has tanked. That I suppose is something to expect when you disclose a money site.
However I have used the same on a couple of other sites and I am fully recovered and in fact the sites are now growing…..
Google is always changing and I think its a case of simply adding content and very simple link building is the way forward.
Ron@Private Label Rights says
Sorry to hear about your money site. Sure you won’t be giving out your sites in the future. I know I wouldn’t.
Sad people have to be that way and there is so much “evil” on the net.
I think your right, content of course and as you said “simple” link building. Think the days of blasting links such as forum profiles is gone or on the way out.
Many people saying Bing is on the rise, so maybe we’ll have another viable SE traffic source. Though that might take some time if that changes happens.
Yeah I didn’t think that people would do it but its no problem I moved the domain and the content and its recovering nicely so should be back to where it was in no time :-) I am seeing a lot of increase in rankings on sites that I have done very little SEO on and have just created great content and not optimised the pages too much…. although its not as easy as not doing SEO as you need SEO to know how to not over do it… if that makes sense….
google uk lost its 90% share now I think its 89% which is good and I really do hope that Bing and Yahoo gain more of the search market as that would make things a lot easier and we should all make a lot more money :-)
Ron@Private Label Rights says
Glad things are recovering. People talk about Bing and Yahoo, but even with similar ranks, they don’t send even close to the same amount of traffic yet. Least not from my experience.
Maybe I remember wrong, but seemed G use to be so much more webmaster friendly. But that has changed over the years. Well, guess just like adwords USE TO be “friendly”. Maybe just to many people trying to take advantage. :(
Google has evolved over the years in my opinion into a a bit of a monster….. It use to be friendly but the adwords sponsored link blocks have got bigger and the normal SEO tactics have pretty much been thrown out of the water….
There is plenty of room for other search engines and to be honest we should probably look at conversions and convert the traffic we do get to increase sales rather than increasing traffic to make more money…..
But all in all the best SEO you can do is create mind blowing cracking content aimed at users to answer the ultimate question and that is still through keyword research…. give them what they want :-)
When you have to shed a lot of pages do you;
1. 301 re-direct them
2. Leave them to ‘die’ naturally,
3. Get google to remove them in WMT
4. Something else
Love to hear your thoughts….
The pages that I had to lose I had suspicions of being bad sites so I didn’t redirect them I just dleeted them and that was that :-) I then just re submitted the sitemap to google in the WMT :-)
