    Who handles SERP Spam the best


    In my opinion, I think that even though yahoo can have sites that rank for short period that are obvious spam. They tend to get rid of those sites after a few days and you can out rank those sites with white hat SEO in most cases. I want to get some other opinions

    My beef with Yahoo is that by being overzealous, they can get rid of some quality stuff...plus, I see a lot of crap in our area in Yahoo (cash advance keywords). Google used to be the best; right now MSN is slightly better for the mainstream terms...local stuff still needs a lot of work.

    i would have to say yahoo.. google does combat spam, but it also combats perfectly legit pages as well.

    msn still shows affilliate links in their SERPs which is a big problem. http://search.msn.com/results.aspx?q=designer+handbag+store&FORM=QBRE look at the 4rth result shown...it's only an affilliate URL (this used to happen in Google until they fixed it)

    yahoo has been pretty good as of late.
    It's been fun everyone... Time to leave for good. See this for more details.

    Don't try and compete I noticed when you stop trying to compete thats when you do alot better ever think of that? I noticed my traffic build when I stop link building and when the competition trys to out rank you / me with links they get themselves penalized for un-natural linking and you/me do better again.

    Smile hmm..


    DougDoug, I do not mean to burst your bubble but your talking about white hat seo and your the owner of preferredpaydayloans.com? I've been doing this for along time and your site is basically a big wash if you get a manual review. The content is completely duplicated from previous pages minus changing some variables around in the page sources. I mean come on, if your doing blackhat tricks dont be preaching white hat seo.

    I'm probably one of the biggest black hat seo guys out there. Yah, sure I will admit it but dont fool yourself. A manual review of your website would send your site st8 to the crapper.
    Just my 2 cents..... I noticied the site from your signature, if its not yours thats a different story and I apologize for busting your balls if thats the case.

    Peace,
    Doug

    Dude its cool everyone has their opinion. I was not really preaching white hat SEO, I was more interested in getting people's opinions on who handles SERP spam the best. When it comes to black/hat versus white hat I guess it really depends on what you consider what.
