NBC hit with Google Penalty

Bronco - Digital Marketing Agency

I have been eagerly waiting to out something like this since starting work with Bronco…

Today I have been researching new places to get authoritative links, we have a few locations which rock and are always trying to grow this out.. So as I browse over the weeks I take note of any potentials. Whilst browsing I noticed that nbc.com has a very very similar setup to another site we use for building authority and started to do some digging to see if it was viable to become a trusted member in this moderated community.

nbc_2First thing to do is find the most authoritative pages on the site using a “site:” query. So I looked at the second result..

A load of spammed blog posts, the PageRank Toolbar is grayed out, completely and then before you know it… BAM! An embedded JavaScript Redirects me to this.

The whole of my.nbc.com is under a heavy penalty from Google because its been spammed to pieces. Of course this is happening to many sites including Bebo as seen here.
