aspdesigner, you have just answered an ongoing question for me! Thanks.. I've always wondered why AOL shows up like that in my stats.. it's kind of annoying , as it distorts the 'unique visits' stats a bit!

Gees I had a site online for 4 days and it is in this update at number 3 for the 2 search strings that I was after. No back links showing or PR for the site but it is showing up on the search Awesome. Now that is service ......

SlyOldDog,

In reference to your post #292, I wouldn't be too concerned that you will get penalized for having a white background, blue tables and white text. That is exactly what Google itself has when you run a search. The results come back with a blue table where Results 1-10 of about 5,370,000. is displayed.

Are you guys sure that the listings are finalized? I see 2,030,000 results on www3 and 2,080,000 results on www for one of my search terms.

Don't count on it... Google doesn't penalize itself... I would play it safe and change the color scheme. Why risk it?

lazyz - I don't really find reversed text as a risk. Even if it goes to a hand review they will quickly see that it isn't a problem.

The problem isn't it going to a hand review. The problem is if it doesn't go to a hand review and just gets caught, undeservedly, in an automatic filter.

Korkus -

I suppose you are correct taking into account that Google only finds hidden text by site review and not by a spider. SPAM paranoia... There are so many "do's and dont's", I tend to be over-safe.

Better to be safe than sorry!

I got spidered by google yesterday on my not yet PR'd but slightly indexed (a dec 11th spidering of 4pages) site. This new spidering got 50 pages.

So... A spidering on Jan 7th.... part of this one, or the start of the next?

Google Guy,

Reported the spam\multimirrorsites\hidden text again as suggested by you (see post 289).
Still nothing done.
I had high hopes...ah well. Not a lot I can do is there?
