Could this simply be as drastic as the deindexing of .co.cc domains?
As some have mentioned these sites should have been picked off by Panda and Penguin, but instead there has been a poison cocktail provided to those left standing.
I'm having this awful sinking feeling that there isn't a way out of this algo. If your domain is a certain way, it's just going to work against you. I hope I'm wrong.
Can anyone confirm is this is a EMD or is this really a brand EMD? A clear cut brand EMD would have to be a word or phrase that can't get confused with another meaning of the same word. In other words, are you seeing "bluewidgets.com" being safe (with a decent track record and content of course) but "xyzbluewidgets.com" being offered the poison cocktail?
Google has changed their tune on copyright infringements. Now could they be judge and jury on what is an acceptable use of a brand in a domain name?
Overall I'm exhausted. Any changes out there? I will have my lowest earning today. I would need to go back to about year 2 to see this type of day.
