Getting Started

I am asking because I need to make a huge decision because of how serious things are today after this huge mistake by Google.
I know one topic inside and outside. I was very

I always check their corporate page, even if it is listed in the hubs or anywhere.

(AI can make mistakes, so we need to cross-reference their findings.)

I know that. But I was wondering if it is AI which is used or other software.
If it is other doftware it is more realistic like they used before.

I'd check this info with Kyle :)

Hey Johann,

A quick search online using your question and up came the following answers. See screen print below...

Please... pay special attention to the SECOND search result listed in the screen print below.

Not only THAT warning... but I'm certain that Google would penalize a site that would do such a thing.

Hope you find this helpful.

Thank you! I did a lot of research yesterday and was not sure.
Because this idea is well known and I would not be using their material, only showing the title and link, I thought it was legal, but now I am not sure.

If you look at the link I had with the post, it does exactly that.

But if there is doubt, I don´t do it. But I know because the only one that had a site with the idea stopped a few years ago, and because of that, I and a decent/hundreds of thousands are in huge work to research.
So it was a really good gap, finding after my own experience how badly this was needed.

Gray and black hat tactics will only get sites penalized in search engines, Johann.

They may rank well for a month... maybe even a month... but... once that site is labeled by a search engine as using these tactics... well, good luck getting out of that box.

You'd need to start with a brand new domain and pray the search engine did not note WHOSE site that was penalized, as I'm betting... if they're not already doing that... that search engines will take notes as to WHO owns what domain.

Search engines are trying to be more and more transparent to their users and only serve up quality content that is not copied from others... information sourced from other site, yes... not copied from other sites.

I have never used a black hat, and mostly very light gray.

But this would have helped so many, so it would be against the idea behind a helpful site, especially because there are only links to click, no text, etc.

But if it is doubtful, I will not. Again, this is very sad because it would have been a huge benefit for all, readers and owners of the sites. And there has been a huge demand for this.
But Google is Google, and about this method, unfortunately, only Google counts.

Thank you for the help.

Thank you for your patience with me, Johann, as I try to clarify what I stated previously.

It is up to the individual website owner to decide whether to use gray hat tactics or not.

Personally, I prefer to list my sources at the end of my posts, just like I was taught to do when writing an essay in school.

Did you know that Google even credits a domain when you only mention them in a post and NOT link to them?

Google does!

However, linking to a site under 'Sources' provides a reader with a professionally acceptable means of crediting a writers sources.

I understand you are complete.

I have a BA as a sociologist, so I am very used to working with sources.

But I didn´t see it as I was taking cope from this sites only using their link and link title to their post. Which in this case are very important information about basic things in many cases.

I know Google credits them, but when Google tries to make it difficult for huge searching groups (in this case, pro and very ambitious players who would, in all cases, bookmark the site, so ranking doesn´t count), it is in my opinion against their so-called helpful policy.

I know, like I said, how big the gab is for a site like this, as I am in this group and have needed to spend days looking for the necessary information.

So I must admit, but I am thankful that you let me know. I am very disappointed to have wasted a week searching for this idea and not managed to be a big help to so many, plus curse side effects I could have used.

But I threw this idea in the basket now; thank you again for the help. Now I can focus in my limited time about other things.

Johann, you didn't waste time at all.

You learned, right?

That's part of your 'learning on the job'

So, instead... chalk this up as a lesson learned... and not wasted time.

Normally, yes, but not in this case. I lost a time that I do not have much of.
But I normally absolutely agree.

It's a grey area, it depends.

The site you mentioned appears to aggregate news content. If you want to create something similar, consider the following:

Use excerpts and link back to the original articles.
Identify the source of each piece of content.
Avoid monetizing the content directly unless you have permission from the original publishers.

I guess you misunderstand me. I will not have other things than exactly like this site, which is a news site, but I would be about badly needed sites for info.
So, nothing but the link, but it opens for traffic, which opens another door.

You may have issues ranking websites as the news is old by the time they rank.

I will not do it because it looks dubiously for Google, which is against their helpful method, and that is another story.

The ranking is no problem at all; this is for a separate group of pro or ambitious sports players who need basic info to find the time and the home page of the tournament they are planning for the next months and years.
I am in this group, so I know how huge help it would be. Instead of trying to find what you need, search for days to find it.

But anyway, this idea is out.

Social Engagement & Marketing

I have been thinking, testing, and trying many things to manage and keep going in the last weeks.

Nope not applicable :) As I found out, it is to publish newsletters and establish a subscription-based audience.

The downside Substack can get expensive

I also advice looking it up in the magnifying glass top menu for any resources you may find.

This tells me nothing.

I know about the newsletter and subscript, that is one of the main reasons to do it interesting.

Partha was talking about Substack, too, because of that dew days ago and recommended WA members use it.

The reason why I ask people to write if they haven´t personal reasons was mainly because if questions aren´t answered, the question gets attention with an open email from WA so there was more chance to get answer if only people that had the experience answer.

Unfortunately, that possibility was crushed in a few minutes!

Sad because it would have been very useful to hear about the experience from members there.

All other things a man can research in a short time.

And of course, I always check the glass before I ask! I am not new started to use the internet!


The fight for getting higher in WA ranking can not only be very tiring (I will follow this; interesting I wait for you get answer; you are well covered) but damage too trying to get answer from questions!

Definitely something I'm sure Kyle can provide feedback on.
