Google's Matt Cutts Calls Out Nailing Another Link NetworkAs many of you remember, Anglo Rank was penalized outwardly by Google, as Google keeps targeting more and more link networks.

Shortly after, some customers began receiving Google penalties and the owner of Anglo Rank has been reversing link orders since.

Saturday night, the owner of Anglo Rank announced on Black Hat World that he has halted orders for the links and is working on rebuilding his network. bluematter, the alias the owner goes under, wrote:

I guess this link network has not learned their lesson or maybe they have. As Google burns a network, rebuild and do it all again. That is the black hat way, right?

Churn and burn. That is blackhat, no real surprise here. I would be amazed if the guys running successful link networks didn't have a choice of methods to revitalize their business ready and waiting. Doubly so after Matt Cutts has started to make a trend of publically calling out his intentions/successful endeavors to devalue them. And the cat and mouse game continues: jobs secured for another year.

Matt: Todays question comes from Simon in Toronto, Simon asks: “Dear Matt, my website has recently received a single bad link and your penguin algorithm has knocked me off of the SERP’s completely, I cant find my site, at all…. I’m concerned that your penalties have created a negative SEO industry and this spam link has destroyed my business, what can I do? Matt: (Smile). This is an excellent question Simon and one that we see come up a lot in the online community. We created the disavow tool for concerned webmasters like you to block spammy links and do our job for us, but before you use the disavow tool we want to see that you have made a real effort to have the link removed and have had enough time to see your family’s income adversely affected. (Smile). The disavow tool should only be considered as a last resort as it can do more damage and should therefore be used very, very carefully, which brings me to my next piece of advise, when you use the disavow tool be sure to use it like someone who is high on meth while wielding a machete….don’t simply disavow a single link, disavow the whole domain, then disavow the link above and below the spam link just to be safe. Take note of what letter the spam link started with and then work through your links disavowing any links that start with the same letter or sound phonetically similar. Take note of the date the spam link was first discovered and disavow any links that were gained 5-8 years before the offending link first appeared as well. Once you have carefully finished using the disavow tool like a machete you can then upload the disavow file, THEN create a second disavow file and disavow every other link you didn’t machete in the first disavow file, then upload that one as well. (Smile) Once you have finished using the disavow tool it is important to mutter the following prayer 5 times. “Distinguished engineer Matt Cutts Hallowed be you’re advise. Your Penguin come, your tweets be done, on Google as in heaven Give us today our daily traffic. Forgive us our linking schemes, as we disavow those who link against us. Lead us not into spamtation, but deliver us from an income. Amen.” After completing all of the steps I would then recommend filing for a job at amazon as we can take around 12 months to process the disavow file and then completely ignore it anyway. (Smile)

Excellent, it made me (smile).

Good job.

It's funny that people keep posting obvious stuff on BHW - knowing full well that many members of Google's team read them. I'm actually shocked there aren't more SEO .onion sites popping up.


12/16/2013 04:39 pm

The other funny thing here is that their clients are mad. I mean, really? You signed up for a paid link service on a black hat forum and thought that they'd work forever and not eventually hurt you?


12/16/2013 04:41 pm

Clear showing of misinformation here after speaking with the owner himself about what is happening with the network, yes it has closed to new client and no it will not open its doors again in order to protect the remaining sites, instead they are building a fresh network that will be again designed to remain as undetectable as possible. Not an easy task when you think about the datasets that Google have to their exposure...


12/16/2013 10:38 pm

google is blackhat, no questions here.


12/16/2013 10:41 pm

after all this, not forget to noindex your site and buy adwords ads. because our algorithms will remember what before was something so wrong with your site, so it not will return in top 10 even after 10 years after your disavow request will processed (even if manual penalty will removed).


12/17/2013 02:24 am

Not all clients are mad. That network was used for negative seo projects too. That's the newest way to use of these networks, just in case you have not heard yet.

Google should used to this kind of steps because they are pinning people now people started to pin them...

How do you 'fix' a website when it's purpose is paid links?

I know how we all love to slate Google and say how they just want us to move to Adwords but... If that was the case, there'd be no one left in the natural results If the natural results have no quality listings then no one will bother to advertise on Adwords just saying

The footprint that exposes these networks,....They all advertising on Black Hat forums!!! Google then just buys into their network using a few different dummy websites.

Once they launch their new network, Matt Cutts will register on their site under the alias "SlasherX" and note every site that he has the option to get a link on, and then give them all manual actions. In a few months we'll see the headlines "Matt Cutts takes down Anglo Rank 2 - Owner vows to return".

Google is number one search engine at the moment. It is not just its paid services that places it at first position. Rather its free listing that most people visit google for. Google's popularity is based upon its free search results.

Haha, I actually laughed out loud at that. I can't imagine Matt Cutts personally registering up to all this.

Well after reading the above message by blackhatworld, one story came in my mind about a spider who try his best to make its web and if someone destroys it then he again start to make a new one but never lose hope .The same goes in the black hat world and I would say that remarkable effort after failure to stand again on their feet.
