MyAyala: But everybody else is doing it!




From a recent news at Inq7.net, myAyala’s General Manager defended their being de-indexed by Google by pointing fingers at everybody else:

Moya acknowledged that the website’s developers had placed hidden text at the footer of the www.myayala.com. But he said that everybody had been doing this for the past two years until now.

He said that other local e-commerce websites are still using this trick, but apparently myAyala.com was “singled out” since it is currently the popular e-commerce website in the country.


Marc discovered they were out of Google last week and blogged about it at PTB. He even sent an email to myAyala informing them of this violation of the Google webmaster guidelines but no reply was sent.

Apparently, they don’t want to thank the very person who tipped them about it but they’re glad to admit their mistakes on the newspaper. They just feel that they’re too big so Google “singled” them out. *wow*

Update:
http://sureseats.myayala.com still has some hidden and stuffed text in it.

    I can’t believe their web developer didn’t know these rules. I’m not even a professional developer but I know that link farms and hidden links are a no-no. They will be really lucky if they can get re-indexed.
