Dad, Stop Spamming Google - It's Embarrassing!

Kid Embarrassed By MomKids are no strangers to their parents embarrassing them when they want to be seen more as adults.

So I found it funny when I spotted a Google Webmaster Help thread from a kid claiming his dad is overly promoting his web site through acts of search and web spam. The kid is not only embarrassed by his dad's actions, he is nervous it will result in his site being penalized by Google.

Here is what the kid said:

Since my Dad found out about my website he wants to promote it for me, but I told him that I didn't want him too because all he has done is create hundreds of keyword stuffed pages and put HIS adsense all over my content (on a different server).

I have asked him to remove the content but he won't no matter how much I tell him that it will end up having a negative affect on my website.

I know I can't make him remove the content but is there anything I can do? I know that Google penalises spammy keyword stuffed pages.

I have never seen a complaint like this in the forums.

Either this is one big lie or just one dad looking after his kid with misguided information.

Sounds more like a LIE.. why would a dad know how to keyword stuff the pages and if he does know how to.. he probably should also know its not really wise act for his lil kid!

Hi, I just happen to be this "Kid" and this is actually the truth! My Dad is not a very nice man - the only reason he has done this is to try and make some money by ripping me off... :/

Is this a Black Hat SEO family of sorts? Keyword-stuffing will catch Google's attention, but spam will get you bad raps from other websites.

Interesting Story! Definitely Keyword stuffing is not a suitable thing as far as search engine optimization is concerned and Google will Penalize the website by using black hat seo techniques..

When I read that my first thought was it was someone who did something spammy, realised that it may be a bad thing and is now trying to cover themselves by giving Google a story. Of course, it could all be true too!
