I had a client who, while blog posts helped years ago, was able to boost the domain.co.uk site to the top in the uk version of google. He decided to just develop the domain.com site with a UK subdomain. On the order page, as soon as the entered UK as country it routes them over to that subdomain. the domain.uk site Does Not link the the domain.com site
recently he tanked on the domain.com, and i mean it's nowhere.
In desperation he recently contacted someone at google he describes and a senior guy in this sort of thing and he told him that why the domain.com tanked- all those blog posts on the domain.co.uk.
He is finding all the blog posts and getting the whois to contact the owner to get them removed. not a quick or easy process for the thousands that where done over the years, he quit promoting UK site two years ago.
As you all know, G became a registrar years ago and does not sell domains
could it be that they are now using whois to identify single owner networks they way use identical C bloc ip?
Does anyone have any info?
