Webmasters… Are you Banned?
A great link to an article. Here it is:
The topic that this link was suggested for was Cross-Linking. If you have multiple websites (on the same IP) you can get Banned from Search Engines.
Banned means they will pull your website out of their index. So you won’t show up in the Search Results. Getting banned isn’t the end of the world. It depends on the case. You can correct the problem and find you way back into the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) within a few months… but maybe with a penalty. It depends.
If you have a website, there are a lot of things you need to consider and be careful of. Here’s some more informaton for Webmasters regarding Google:
There are rules in everything we do. It protects the surfer and the webmasters. Without rules, webmasters would be able to manipulate Search Results and render The Search Engines useless…

Clarifying Your Offerings for Bigger Profits
Imagine two stores sitting side-by-side in a popular shopping mall. One is your go-to shop for just about everything. They sell garden tools, candy bars, T-shirts, car parts and baby bottles.
The other is more exclusive. In fact, the only thing they sell is chocolate. Belgian chocolate, Swiss chocolate, dark and milk chocolate, chocolate covered peanuts and chocolate flavored gummy bears. If it’s chocolate, they stock it. And if it’s not chocolate, you won’t find it on their shelves.
At first glance, you might think that the chocolate store is limiting itself. After all, there are lots of other things they could sell, right? The world is full of sweet treats that aren’t chocolate, and what about other items that complement candy, such as greeting cards and candy dishes?
The truth is, though, if you’re thinking the first store—the one that sells a little bit of everything—is the more business savvy of the two, you might be mistaken. Here’s why.
When you clarify and reduce your offerings to only those that closely match your business goals, you will be in a far better position to attract your ideal client. Not only that, but you’ll have customers lining up to pay a premium for your services.
It might appear at first glance that the store with everything has more traffic. That’s because they do. Remember, no matter what you want, you can almost always buy it there. But because they stock so much and have to appeal to such a wide market, by necessity their prices are lower.
The specialty shop is different. They may have fewer customers, but the average client is far more loyal, spends more money per visit, and raves to her friends about the delicious treat she picked up this morning. The average client at the sell-everything store? A single rumor of a lower price at a new store across town, and he or she is gone without a backward glance.
What does this have to do with your business and service offerings? Everything.
As a coach, service provider, or product seller, it’s critical for you to know exactly what you want to provide, and to whom. If you simply create a hodgepodge of products with no clear direction and without a cohesive brand, you may make a few sales (especially if you work cheap) but you won’t gain a loyal following. You’ll be like that first store, always chasing after new customers, because the old ones keep wandering away in search of a better price.
Take a look at your virtual storefront. Are your products all in keeping with your brand? Do they instantly tell a new visitor exactly what you do? Are they priced in line with your market?
Don’t be afraid to take a hard look at your current offerings and get rid of those low-priced, fringe products that are diluting your brand. Focus on the core products and services, and work to make them better and more valuable, and before you know it, your brand will have a loyal following, too.
