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.
