Banned In Google

First off Hat tip to seo buzz box, he found it on Google Groups.

Ok, so the story starts off with Alken M.R.S Publishing posting in Google groups about his site :

Two weeks ago my ten+ year old site at http://www.alkenmrs.com was
totally deindexed from Google with no warning.

During this time, and with the help of some wise people from this
forum, who have gone through the site looking for anything that could

have caused this deindexing, I have also posted two spam reports and
two reinclusion requests. Neither seem to have had anything done about
them.

Ok, the Post swings left and right, has people try to help Alan, But still noboby has the Balls to say “Dude it’s a MFA site, your done” anyway Adam Lasnik pops up with (and this is not edited )

I think it’s time for some tough love here, Alan.

Imagine this scenario. You walk into a store and some guy — surprisingly the owner — grabs you by the shoulder.

“How’d you like some beer? Oh, hey, we also sell coffee. Hmm… you don’t want something to drink? We specialize in air purifiers, too!
And you know what… after you drink some beer next to your new air purifier, I bet you could use a date, right? No, no, not the eating
kind… I’m talking a really nice lady! And if she ends up stealing your identity, well, no problem! I sell Identity Theft protection services… and… wait! Wait…come back!!!”

How much would you trust that guy? Or his store? Sure, he may have small leaflets on a zillion topics, but he’s not an expert in any.

If you, as an independent observer, came across such a store online, would you trust it anymore? If not, why should Google see this as an
important and relevant site?

The reductions in rankings you’ve experienced are not going to be reversed by simple technical or structural changes. You may wish to
focus your efforts, add compelling, original, and substantive content or tools, and *then* file a reconsideration request.

Ok I Have have to CRY BULLSHIT !! Adam, the internet is built on sites like http://www.topix.net/dir, or about.com, why didn’t you just come out and say …

Imagine this scenario. You walk into a store and some guy — surprisingly the owner — grabs you by the shoulder.

“How’d you like some ADSENSE with that beer? Oh, hey, we also sell coffee but you get adsense with that too. Hmm… you
don’t want something to drink? We specialize in air purifiers with adsense, too!
And you know what… after you drink some beer next to your new air purifier, I bet you could use a date, right? well checkout this ADSENSE !! thats what it’s there for

No, no, not the eating kind… I’m talking a really nice lady! And if she ends up stealing
your identity, well, no problem! I sell Identity Theft protection services with adsense of course… and… wait! Wait… thats right leave VIA the doors marked ADSENSE”

Alan’s Problems isn’t his diversification on topics, it his please leave by the ADSENSE DOOR, I mean Adam would it be better for Alan to setup 20 or 30 mini sites and link them all together … I Think NOT..the site had a MFA footprint, and was killed for that
