Google + Hates Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: November 20, 2018

Why does Google + hate Wealthy Affiliate so much ?

I have just posted in several places and communities within Google + All linking back to my new post on Affiliate Marketing, Wealthy Affiliate and the Black Friday deal.

On each post I used the same text and link but different images. On two of 8 I used the Black Friday sale image and Google immediately removed those two but not the others ?

I resubmitted with a different image and all was well.

Does anyone know how or why the Google algorithm can pick up a wealthy Affiliate image even if it is not affiliate linked.

Very frustrating

With Grace and Gratitude

Mine were rejected via email almost immediately. Hopefully yours got through. I didn’t even mention WA in the text

Be careful, I was blocked from FB for this matter a year ago just before the BF days

My WA and BF blog posts work fine with G+.

It's not that WA is hated. It's that if you're using an affiliate link (even a blog post from WA) on G+, it gets instantly removed. The same with any affiliate link.

Also, G+ doesn't like you posting the same link in multiple communities. It's classed as spammy. If you do manage to get away with that, each community post is also published on your time line which looks even worse to G+ and your followers.

Yes I get your last point which is why I change up the images. However there was no affiliate link in any post, just a link back to my blogpost. No WA link whatsoever just a WA image.

A link to a post on your actual WordPress blog or to a blog url from WA?

That's a strange one. I have no answers.

But with that said, I remember with my old G+ account, G+ blocked me completely and wasn't able to share any blog post whatsoever. There never was any explanation for it. I didn't even break the rules either lol.

Someday I am going to have my own Search Engine. If you do not pay Google they cut you.

Are you using the link in the text because this is a no-no. You must use the link bar supplied by Google+. On phone it is on the bottom but on desktop I think it is on top right, if memory serves

I never have any problems ... it seems they just didn’t like the wealthy affiliate image
