In the “my site got wiped post” I was annoyed that spammers was showing up for my name. Yes, I consider “smslånonline” to be a query that I built with loads of effort and I also consider Smslånonline [dot] com to be just another spammer that tries to benefit from the site I built.
So why I am saying Google is trying to seduce me doing wrong?
Quite a long time ago I startet to mention the site Tellus [dot] se. It was a site that 301 redirected to me early in the project and I asked about it and explained it quickly that I have nothing to do with this site. Reason: it is a strong but “dangerous” site. As it earlier belong to a bank (was it Swedbank?) it should, long term, be obvious that link manipulation is going on if you use it to strengthen your domain. I didn’t want to be connected with this site because the goal with my site was to create something better and trying to avoid stuff like that. To avoid all risks.
I have it in my disavow file:
I am also asking my network for information about this guy on Twitter:
Allvarligt. Om en sajt 301:ar. Hur får man fram “original”-IP? #svseo

I even forbid referring traffic from this domain just to make really sure that Google will understand I don’t want this traffic:
Then… I get this manual action. Google takes away all my traffic (blue):
The copy cats start to rank for my name and content….
My traffic is annihilated.
And THEN, today you see THIS search result for “smslånonline” and you know MyTellus redirects to me:
Just a little teaser to make sure I do everything wrong? “Thanks a lot” for the opportunity but I would prefer my manual action getting revoked instead.
