Hi,

Anybody can guide me please.

If my link partner's domain or IP is listed in any of one spam database, or other domain on the same server are also listed, should I continue link relationship with them ?

Thanks
Kevin

Thanks Phranque for moving my post in more appropriate category & sorry for my mistake :)

I was talking about non email spam.

Thanks.

no problem about the posting location, Kevin!

if it looks like your link partner is part of the spam network on an IP i would obviously avoid it.

what type of spam database are you talking about?
whose spam database?
there must be a specific technique or set of techniques that land you in the "spam database".
are these techniques being detected or have they been reported?
is the source of this information trustworthy and authoritative?

I am using an extension in chrome browser, when I open a site, it can give me whois information plus some spam database name like (relays.dnsbl.sorbs.net, spam.dnsbl.sorbs.net, etc.) and show the status of ip of open site in browser.

This extension also show Blocklist lookup in three level.

Thanks,
Kevin

I have never heard of a search algorithm that takes into account any kind of spam blocklist. I believe that if they did there would be a great many false positives because spammers in certain countries try to get around blacklists by compromising websites on legitimate web hosts then launching their bots from those IPs to automatically spam forums, WP sites, and other kinds of sites with known vulnerabilities to automated techniques. Those IP addys are generally reported and entered into a database like the one at [stopforumspam.com...]

is it the blocklist lookup on uceprotect?
if so that's about email spam.

sorbs.net is also about email spam, not web spam.

when an IP gets blocked for email spam it is usually that the server is vulnerable, not that the server admin or webmasters on that IP are necessarily spammers.


i would look at these as reasons to conduct further discovery on that IP since a server admin that leaves an open smtp relay may also allow or have exposure to malware and spam on the web server.

Thanks for the info but I don't think all these sites are in uceprotect list.

Case is that i am receiving lot of "unnatural link" message from google, I have around 700 plus links built by team. I am unable figure which is harming my site.:(
