    Tricking Google Search Results Using Doorway Pages!!!


    I have sent the below SPAM to Google and it seems they are not doing anything about this. This is a very large network of manipulating the search engine results and degrades the search experience for everyone. I ask everyone on this forum, to follow the document below. “HOPEFULLY SOMEONE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS COMPANY AND COMPAINIES THAT ARE INVOLVED.” There seems to be a trick into ranking high in Google in just 1 to 2 months. This needs to be fixed ASAP!!! Let me know your comments?

    If you would also like to place a spam report on the below companies, please visit the below link to report this and put an end to this type of practice:

    http://www.google.com/contact/spamreport.html

    Dear Google,

    I would like to start off the details of this document in reference to a search engine optimization company called www.1-hit.com that is performing search engine optimization for a company called www.Testking.com. As you will see below, you will notice that their SEO practices are totally going against Google’s guidelines. Please read this document in full, YOU WILL BE SURPRISED!!! This company is manipulating the Google Search Engine Results and degrades the search experience for everyone!!!

    Let’s start with just one search that I have made with regards to www.testking.com, which also owns, www.actual-exams.com, www.real-exams.com, www.exact-exams.com and www.exactquestions.com

    1.)
    I have done a search for 9A0-036 exam questions, you can also do many other searches for the 9A0-036 and you will notice the below url that show’s up in the 1st result. The 1st result is there company url. Click the below link to view the keyword stuffing that they have used for just one search that I have made.

    First url shown:

    http://www.testking.com/exams/9A0-036.htm

    You will see from this url that this company is doing keyword stuffing. If you look to the right of this page, you will notice other links that they have that also show in the Google search engines with high ranks in the Google search engine. Click on the top URL’s shown on the right side. They all go to different pages with the same structure of keyword stuffing for many types of there exams. They are stuffing keywords and getting both there listings to show on top placement of the Google search engine for many of there products. I can go on and on of other searches that this company has manipulated the search results for. Most of there products are being displayed in the top ranking position because of keyword stuffing.

    2.)

    www.testking.com, which also owns, www.actual-exams.com, www.real-exams.com, www.exact-exams.com and www.exactquestions.com has hired a search engine optimization company called www.1-hit.com to do there search engine optimization. If you look at the bottom of the www.testking.com website, and all other websites listed above, you will notice”

    Search Engine Optimization and Webhosting By 1-hit.com1-HIT.COM



    Very Imporatant:

    The url’s below are doorway pages with inappropriate use of keywords. Read some of the content on these websites, you will notice a lot of keywords that are being stuffed and they are just doorway pages to all of there websites. They fill search results for one keyword that I have searched for example 646-057 exam questions:

    Please search for the keyword in Google: 646-057 exam questions

    If you look at the first 20 results, you will notice all the websites below. There domains were booked Feb/25/2006, April/30/2006, May/4/2006, and 1 domain booked on Feb/27/2006. They have the same register name and all the websites come from the same ip block. Below is the registrant information and the url’s for all the doorway pages that are all directing to there websites, www.testking, www.actual-exams.com, www.real-exams.com, www.exact-exams.com, www.exactquestions.com.

    Below are the websites that they have created to make doorway pages to all there other websites: All these domains were booked just recently and already have top ranking. They do not sell anything on there website, they are just url’s that redirect customer’s to there other websites like: www.testking.com, www.actual-exams.com, www.real-exams.com, www.exact-exams.com, www.exactquestions.com

    “The below comment came from a website called searchenginewatch.com” that discusses how they got there websites above to rank so well so fast. This company did some sort of trick to get all these websites indexed and getting top ranking on minor and major keywords. You can search for any of there exams, just type in the (exam number) for example the search term: 646-002 exam questions

    You will see once again the first 20 results being all the webpages above in which they have just booked there domains just 1 to 3 months ago.
    Comment about Doorway Pages From SearchEngineWatch.com: http://searchenginewatch.com/webmasters/article.php/2167831
    “By the way, this gap between the entry and the goal page is where the names "bridge pages" and "jump pages" come from. These pages either "bridge" or "jump" visitors across the gap.
    Some search engines no longer accept pages using fast meta refresh, to curb abuses of doorway pages. To get around that, some webmasters submit a page, then swap it on the server with the "real" page once a position has been achieved.
    This is "code-swapping," which is also sometimes done to keep others from learning exactly how the page ranked well. It's also called "bait-and-switch."
    It is kind of odd how these doorway page websites above already have top placement for many keywords related to the IT certification industry in just 1 to 3 months time. This is a search engine optimization company www.1-hit.com that should be doing proper search engine optimization. Not doorway pages and manipulating the search results to show the same content with different url’s going to the same websites. This is very unacceptable, to the user’s experience.

    I have searched for the 646-057 exam questions in Google: You can do many more searches with any of there exams they have listed and you will almost see the same results. Most of all the above websites show up in the top 20 and 30 search results.

    Let’s take for instance, one of the url’s that show up which is real-testking.com

    You will notice on the top right corner, all there other websites. You will see that on all the above domains, that there is nothing to sell, all these url’s listed above are doorway pages to there websites, in which they also gain incoming links from these websites as well. They list this as affiliate but there is no affiliate. This is the search engine optimization company doing the search engine optimization for them that has created these sites to manipulate the Google search engine results.

    When I check the backward links for one domain http://www.cisco-certification-exam.com which has a PR 5 in such a short period. I see that they have some sort of weird linking partner http://www.webprostruction.com/partners/partners.htm which is owed by 1-hit.com as you can see on the top right corner of the page. I do not see these links on the website at all. I just see them when I do a backward link check with the Google Toolbar. I think this is where they got all there links to boost all those domains in just 1 to 3 months I think, or they did a 301 redirect to the new domains they have just booked, to quickly gain position for there doorway pages to rank so well, so fast in Google.

    You will notice that the search engine company www.1-hit.com made all these websites for there customer www.testking.com which also owns www.actual-exams.com, www.real-exams.com, www.exactquestions.com and www.exact-exams.com by visiting another one of the url’s www.questions-central.com where if you visit the advertise page, it states if you would like to contact questions-central to go to www.thehostplanet.com. If you scroll to the bottom of the page on www.thehostplanet.com you will notice
    Search Engine Optimization By 1-HIT.COM

    So, let’s now talk about all there other sites that have keyword stuffing. That are also in the search engines with top placement for many keywords searched.

    Let’s start with there other site: www.actual-exams.com

    This is just one example, feel free to look at the entire site, you will see lot’s of keyword stuffing at the bottom of mostly every page. Below is an example of one url from www.actual-exams.com , please scroll down to the bottom of this page, you will see the keyword stuffing.

    http://www.actual-exams.com/Cisco-practice-exam.htm

    Click on any of the links on this page, I clicked on the below link:

    http://www.actual-exams.com/642-871-practice-exam.htm

    Once again, you will see keyword stuffing.

    Let’s talk about another website that they own with keyword stuffing www.exact-exams.com

    You will notice the below url I picked in random on there website which was located to the right of the homepage. http://www.exact-exams.com/642-801-exam.html

    You will also see keyword stuffing on this page as well.

    This company stuffs keywords on all of there websites and creates links to there websites using doorway pages and redirects them to there websites. This tactic manipulates the Google’s search results. This is just a couple of examples that I have listed for you. Please do what’s necessary to stop this from progressing any further. Other businesses that are doing safe practices with regards to search engine optimization are suffering from this company totally manipulating the search results for less ranked keywords and for highly targeted keywords. Please put an end to this!!!

    There is no need of worrying about others websites. Spammers will get their reply as blacklisting within short time. You only need to concentrate on your site. If the website is getting rankings because of keyword stuffing it is a good sign form google. What do you think?

    Its people like you that give the seo industry a bad name.

    If you cant rank above them with your sites then hire a proffesional that can because people just laugh at complainers and whingers like you.
    This is my ongoing study of the Buy Viagra serps.
    I will be studying it all the time for seo reasons.

    This guy is frustrated and rightfully so.

    It is worth it to report spam. to google-not so much- but I have had the best of luck reporting it directly to the webhost or to the websites the spammers use to set up their doorway pages.

    IT is very frustrating when you look up a search term and you see a couple of good sites then a couple of spammy ones. They are just annoying.

    True outranking them is easy, and spam usually only comes up for lesser keywords.
    spednd 10 minutes or so reporting them then leave it alone and get to work.

    No offense meant, but your website is selling exam answers. My point is why not use the methods the guy who is spamming is using. It works, he makes money, and his business isn't the most legit anyhow.
    Blakc hat works thats why people use it. I wouldnt use it because I dont want to be sued and I dont have the mind for it. People make some good dough on it however.

    Thanks for the heads-up! Some of those test sites have exchanged links with me. I will have to investigate this and stop linking back to them so that I don't get nailed for linking to blackhat sites. I'm having enough problems as it is with a Yahoo penalty.

    I would never do this nor would I do it for my clients sites, but for some reason I can't find it in me to snitch and for some reason I don't feel comfortable when a snich is around..

    I'm not impressed with your whining.... get you *** to work and don't worry about what the other guy is doing.. you sound like a real brat trowing a tantrum.

    Ah. I remember the days when doorway pages were considered white hat

    Good to see they still work with less competitive search phrases.

    Seriously though, don't worry about what your competition is doing and just spend your time optimising your own site and you will do a lot better.
