Google Paranoia Thread: Share & Heal

Dec 16, 2005 - 9:19 am 0 by

Our fun thread for Friday comes via WebmasterWorld Forums, under the self-explanatory title Google Myth & Paranoia. In that thread, the thread creator asks members to "Share your innermost Google fears and see if you're just worrying...." So here they are in bulleted format for you:

  • Adsense Login Paranoia (post #1)
  • Google Toolbar False Tracking (post #2)
  • Buying Links Even with NoFollow Tag (post #4)
  • Getting Filtered Out (post #7)
  • Placing Scraper Sites Above Unique Content (post #8)
  • Collateral Damage (post #9) (read post #9, very funny)
  • Selling Text Links (post #10)
  • Clicking on Text Links (post #11)
  • Interlinking Sites (post #15)
  • Google Launching a Product that Replaces my Business (post #17)
  • Matt Cutts will dress up like the Dread Pirate Roberts (post #20)
  • Won't Live Long Enough to See Site Escape from the Google Sandbox (post #23)
  • Competitors Read These Types of Forums (post #26 - some goodies for blackhats)
  • Google and Yahoo are the same company (post #28)

And plenty more coming at the WebmasterWorld thread. Also note that someone says in the forum, that the solution to all of this is to block GoogleBot like Brett did. :)
