Pure spam penalty

A content with lots of grammatical mistakes, it is counted as spam. 

A translation tool used to copy content from English or any website then pasted on one’s own website is counted as pure spam.

A major part of content is copied from another website and made only a few changes like description change, title change, image change, few words changed and published on the website is pure spam.

Images, text and videos copied from other websites to your website are pure spam.

Youtube videos from other websites that are embedded in different categories are pure spam.

A page showing google ads or other ad networks ads more than content is pure spam.

Themes and plugins countered pure spam web owner not aware

Sometimes innocent people also get trapped unintentionally. For example you use a plugin for other purposes but it has done something due to java script and google bot is not able to read the content. It is pure spam. Don’t take clicking casually if the right click option disabled on your website it is pure spam.

Some themes prevent reading the website content or some plugins that show the wrong image are counted as pure spam.

Website analysis and records is compulsory

  • Maintain deleted plugin record, problem that plugin was creating, how many pages deleted and which pages you deleted. 
  • How many pages are republished.
  • How many pages are newly published.  
  • Note the differences between old and new published pages?
  • Give all these details to google if facing a manual penalty. 
  • Explain all the details after and before changing content to review the website for manual penalty.

Manual penalty reasons

The Google system generates the violating websites list. Then google employees manually check these websites and take action. Therefore it is called a manual penalty. Manual penalties are given on the whole website. 

People facing manual penalties have to remove the whole content. Editing some part of content will not resolve the problem. After deleting, publish new original written content and request google review. If earlier 550 pages were published all new 550 pages immediately publish not required instead publish slowly. Maintain the publishing time table publish 1 to 2 posts per day or 1 post in 2 days as per your working capacity.

Manual penalty drawback

If facing a manual penalty do the above given hard work only when your website is very old or you need the brand name. The truth is even after removing the manual penalty the website will not rank like it was ranking previously. 

1-2 years old websites which don’t have much work on that should delete the website and delete gmail. Book a new domain, new website and start working again on a fresh website. It’s true that after manual penalties usually websites don’t rank like they did previously.

Manual penalty solution

Give the domain transfer proof and reveal the purchasing date. Tell your website is a fresh new website and don’t have any connection with the old one. Mention domain purchase date from when you are creating fresh content. 

Create a new thread on google search community and provide details about your website. After that copy the thread link tag John Mueller and Search Leozone and send it on twitter.
