For the most part, I am a pretty laid back person. Even when wrongs are committed against me, I always try to look through the filter of the opposing side’s intentions before I cast judgement.
When it comes to the business side of things, I fully expect competition to come from those who are located geographically near me, and I will win some battles and lose some as well.
I don’t need to make tons of money, but enough to provide for my family and allow for us to live life the way we feel it should be lived.
And now someone has tampered with that harmony and is impacting the way my family lives.
That, I will not tolerate.
What has occurred is that someone in my competitive space clearly feels threatened by my presence and reported my site to Google for a link audit. After extensive research and confirmation from a Google insider, I now know what precisely my “ban” is, how long it’s in effect, and what to do to get out from it.
While I don’t know who it was precisely who reported my site, there are only a handful of possibilities of people/companies that my site was routinely bumping into in the Google search results for certain phrases.
Prior to this event happening, I treated this site as a hobby – a great way to test my seo theories and only risk my own site to Google’s algorithmic assault. But because of this event, everything has changed. I now possess the focus and energy to direct my attack: to dominate the SERP’s in Google for all the phrases I want to own.
On some fronts, this will be an easy task to accomplish due to the lack of brand names in the space. On others, I have some “RockStars” to go up against, but for every Goliath, there is a David.
This action will emerge slowly and sneak up on a few. There are those sleeping at the wheel as the world changes around them as they hang on with no clue as to what to do next.
One of the best things about search marketing is how there are many ways to achieve a top ranking. And now that I know that I am being watched, it’s time to put on a show.
