So my account got banned from Netscape or rather it was “removed”. Imagine your girlfriend or boyfriend saying to you, “I am now removing you from this relationship as you have violated my terms”.
Actually I had two accounts banned, oh yeah I’m a real hard core black hat spammer type. I used one account for all things SEO and the other for everything else, OK so it was against the rules, but I never cross voted. OK I did once and that was ages ago.
To be honest I am not sure exactly why I was banned, I voted a lot on my own posts, clients posts, people who link to me posts, and friends posts. I also submitted genuine articles. I made it to the front page a few times ( it’s a lot easier than dig ) once with “How to build a Log cabin“.
As a marketer I feel you have to push things to see what is acceptable, no problem with being banned. But I did get that pang of “nobody loves me”, when I saw the get-lost-you-evil-spammer page. I think those pages should come with a link to Blackhat SEO Anonymous and print the 12 step plan to becoming a pure white hat.
New account/accounts and old tactics with a new twist implemented. I’ll be back soon enough.
Anyone else with hard luck social media account stories to share, it will help with the grief.
