Accused of hijacking someone's website with clickmanager

Postby kenton » 2005-03-12 08:04 am

Hi

I just received an email from a concerned user.

She says that a link from my site is hijacking her website in Google's results, causing her to lose all Google Traffic.

I have 2 links to her site using clickmanager.

The link is showing up in google's "allinurl:" query modifier.

She goes on to say that I can read more on this problem at Webmaster World http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum30/28329.htm but I think this article is about sneaky 302 redirects which I don't think clickmanager does.

Does anyone have any comments about this?
Is she confused (as I suspect) ... I don't really understand the allinurl modifier

I don't know enough about bots to say anything about it.

please tell her that PR and other systems like that mean jack shit. If she wants good hits from search engines she needs to make her content keyword ritch. The PR does not effect how Google or any other search engine ranks your site on the search page, PR is how the site is ranked in the directory, which people don't use so often. If your site has a lot of good content you will get good search refered from search turms on Google or other search engine and PR has nothing to do with it.

PR affects google search results a lot, matt. You are misinformed.

If my script is causing google to mistakenly destroy her PR, it is the fault of google, not me. She should complain to google.

You would be suprised Jeremy, 2 of my sites have no PR at all and I get about 25% if my hits from Google and come in the top page on about 26 different key words

Hi Jeremy

I agree with you on the PR ... but also with Matt, in that good keywords are the key.

Anyway, her PR is still 4 while my "offending" sites top PR is 3 and PR2 on the page that links to her.

I have pretty much told her to "prove it", but if she get's too narky about it I'll drop her articles.

I figured that if Google's allinurl: is showing my pages when searching on her URL then it's Google's fault.

BTW Love Clickmanager!

I can assure you if you had a higher PR you'd get way more hits on more keywords.
Go into Google Directory thingie (dmoz.org) and you'll see that they are organized by PR, if I'm not mistaken.

You don't get many hits through the directory anyway unless it is an extremely good category
