A legitimate inspirational gift store that has relevant content and product and has been leading in the rankings since 2010 gets canned from Google this Oct 4th, 2013. This small business is sick and tired of wasting all of its time and money trying to please Google only to get kicked off by some bad back link and in this case duplication of HTML content from our affiliate program. Point is we cleaned up the mistake and cannot even submit a reconsideration letter that we spent hours composing because apparently that is not possible anymore. Something like this happened about 2 years ago and then last Sept 2012 and it always takes tons of time to resolve but in the past we have. At this point and this time, we just may focus on building our business using pinterest, apparently all you have to do is create a board with keyword names, slap some relevant content and bam you are on the front page! Does not seem like the best search results to me for googles customers. Hum, an entire inspirational gift store with wonderful product or a board on pinterest with this and that.
