Q: My website is positioned extremely well in every search engine except Google. Google appears to have penalized it heavily because there are too many outbound affiliate links. Apart from reducing the number of outbound links do you have any other advice to rectify this? There is a lot of high quality original content on the site which should also help. Or should I simply register a new domain name and start from scratch?
A: Back in the middle of 2005, there was news that Google was penalizing what they considered to be a thin affiliate.
So it’s possible that Google took a dislike to your site for this reason. Or maybe they delisted you due to extensive link trading, duplicate content, or any number of reasons.
Since I have no way of knowing the reason that your fell out of favor with Google, I can’t really give advice on getting the current site back into Google’s good graces.
If you truly have high quality, original content, and not some auto-generated stuff, I think it might be worth your while to use a content management program to put that content up as a new site, and then see if you can get back into Google.
