1538: new post   Life After Google Penalty
I thought I would share this with everyone to show Google may be King but Bing is most definately the Queen.

The site was a high earning site and I was ready to hang the boots up and move on.[br][br]After the initial shock and numb feeling that lasted around three days, I decided that it was time to look at what to do and where to go. Looking at my stats traffic was down from a high of 18,000 to numbers that I had seen years ago, 800+. Not a single Google referal a few Yahoo and the rest of them Bing.

GoDaddy has a new policy (as of July, 2011) that lets them block DNS packets from high-volume DNS servers. Any domains using GoDaddy's DNS hosting are affected (any domains with 'domaincontrol.com' in them). [br][br]Two such sites that are affected include a niche search engine that is in development, and a project that keeps track of statistics on domains. Sites like these that are blocked by GoDaddy's new policy will be unable to include domains using GoDaddy's DNS hosting (except domains owned by GoDaddy, which are exempt from the Selective DNS Blackouts policy).

1552: new post   Having Google +1 button on a page will override robots.txt blocks!
Now this one is interesting.I just found this answer from a google employee in one of their forum threads. The +1 Button is only intended to be used on pages that contain all public content. By putting the button on a page we're taking it as an indication from you that this page is public content. This means that we will fetch your page even if crawler directives indicate otherwise.

"Today we're making a change to the way we categorize link data in Webmaster Tools. As you know, Webmaster Tools lists links pointing to your site in two separate categories: links coming from other sites, and links from within your site. Today's update won't change your total number of links, but will hopefully present your backlinks in a way that more closely aligns with your idea of which links are actually from your site vs. from other sites."
