Hi All

Its been long time I am reading the forum and now having question in mind.

I am running many of SEO Project with different clients. As link Building practice we are submitting articles in article directories but from last some time I am feeling many directories shut down, many hijacked and some are running out of hosting.

To get rid of submission in this area I thought I should create my own network of Article Directories.

Now I want to ask here will it be legit for submission and running Adsense on it to have initial income?
Will Google consider the link back coming out of it as nice back links?
Will it satisfy Google T&C?
Please give your thoughts.

If the Google algorithm recognizes it as a network of sites with common ownership, then it will discount the links you plant and also give the pages poor rankings, or possibly even impose penalties.

So most likely the only way it could work as you intend would be if you could make it appear that the sites are totally independent of each other.

Yes i am also agree with the same. If the Google algorithm recognizes it as a network of sites with common ownership, then it will discount the links you plant and also give the pages poor rankings, or possibly even impose penalties.

I hate these kinds of questions, because they always strike me as so selfish. What kind of value are you adding to the Internet with your proposed articles network? Is this really good content that Internet users will find helpful and be happy to discover? If so, then great, go for it, because whenever you create something of value, then you can't help but be successful. But if your one and only goal is to boost rankings for sites that don't deserve it, that's just sad, and I don't wish you any success.

MBJ: I Agree - the so called "how to" sites try to look like they are providing helpful info, but it is so thin and useless (and usually scraped from an authority site) to the human reader, it is only enough to trigger Adsense to display related ads. I HATE those sites! It's web pollution at its worst!

Thanks for reply

@MBJ I am nothing to do with what you like or hate. I am doing business here and I must deliver what my clients require. As SEO my Core goal is to have link back and that is what I am considering around.

Also I am not having enough time to figure our what is wrong and what is right on internet I have left that thing on people like you.

Aristotle certainly I need to think about it and I have thought to not linking any website with each other.

Also can you tell me if I will host it on Godaddy (all 1000) will it show any way signal ownership.

Please share your thoughts

GoDaddy has that sneaky private registration up sell so garbage site operators and spammers can hide their identity. Sounds like a perfect fit for what you want to do.

In defence of azhermemon, I have a new client in a popular niche I've not worked in before. ALL the top sites (and I do mean every single one) have created 95-100% of their own links via satellite sites of one sort or another. Networks of blogs, offering CMS systems to enthusiast sites, pay-per-blog, networks of link exchange pages (where the links are either paid for or reciprocated from a third party site), article marketing.

This is what works, and has worked for years. And it's easier to do than the 'proper' way to do it.

Not adding to the tide of crud on the net is all very laudable, but if you have a job to do and want to compete this is one way to do it. If you have a client that won't or can't invest heavily in their site, and doesn't have the time to provide content, you can give them sometimes very good returns using these methods. Business is business right? I mean, it's not hacking, malware or unsolicited email.

The fact that these satellite sites often rank and clog the SERPs with AdWords and rubbish is something for Gogle to deal with. If it didn't work, people wouldn't do it.

It will be easier to submit few articles every months with the link embedded within the content than building thousand directories and building links for all thise will be a nightmare... plus its not moral per say in G's standards.

It still works fine. just make sure you have enough other links to keep the quality profile healthy in general. cannot guarantee how long more it is going to work.
-50 penalty comes directly for this kind of abuse.

Worth it to create a new 1000 Article Directories Network?


I'm trying to wrap my gead around what your intentions are.

Are you saying you want to start 1,000 new domains or a series of relevant widget business directories, say 10 domains holding 100 articles each, with all the articles published being unique and subject relevant and not merely duplicate pages from your clients' web sites?
