I run about 8 sites. One of my main ones I had all kinds of doorway and keyword junk in... but this was back in the late 1990's, when you actually DID that! Anyway, somewhere around 1999 or so, three sites that had that sort of "optimization" dissapeared from AV. I cared, but not too much, as AV was never a big source of hits anyway.
Well, since then, I have redesigned all those sites, and dropped the keyword-stuffing optimizations. Two of the three are back (and rate well) in AV. But my MAIN moneymaking site is still not there. And it is clean (and has been for a while). (And it pulls up number one for a lot of my terms in Overture)
OK, so should I care, especially in light of the Overture takeover of AV? If I should, how do I go about getting back in AV's good graces?
In light of the overture purchase, I don't think it would hurt to try. They'll probably be combining the AV & AllTheWeb databases, If they also combine the black lists, you could be in trouble.
So far I have been getting 1000's of uniques with MSN and have gotten only 2 uniques through AV. That's with very similar serps too!
