I was out of blogging for some days,now it was some or I might call it many back-end issues and personal issues which were keeping me Busy.
So I should throw some light on what were these issues.
First,I was Attacked by some malicious robots (scripts) which traverse the web automatically to find sites which are potential targets for them.
- Second I was changing my host for Tech2view.com to better godaddy servers which was previously hosted on zz60.net servers.
Why this decision ???
- The zz60 servers were contantly down for some weeks due to some DDOS attacks which they were experiencing and were unable to rectify those.
- Second some of my wp scripts were not functioning correctly with the hosting of zz60.
Thanks to Sahil for supporting my initial phase of blogging.
After they find out their potential targets they just attack those sites with anything like malicious or spammy links which they hide on your site so that they are not visible to you (invisible text) or your visitors but they are definitly visible to search engines.
More Details about the type of attacks can be found out here
These spammy links provide them with the link juice of the web site which is attacked because these links are
I should show you some example of what are these links like:
These spam links may be hidden anywhere on your site mainly footers and headers and blog posts.
So why all this happened to my website???
It is due to the file permissions which were set to 775 by me due to some reasons.Not getting into the details now.
In the period of this Aftermath which started at 25th June and ended on 15th July my SERP’s in google and other search engines dropped considerably and traffic was next to null ,because google and any other search engine don’t allow such sites to rank in their results.
It was kind of a Dampening effect on me as I was giving regular updates and there was no traffic.That was another reason why I was out of blogging for a while. As I believer of the saying “Give regular updates, Get regular Traffic”.
Then I came across a post by blogger who faced the similar issues for
blog.digitalbackcountry.com which came as a relief that its not only I who is experiencing such attacks.
I removed those spam links by detecting each and every part of the scripts working for my blog and removed those link spam and installed some wordpress security plugins which automatically detects for such intrusions and resolve the same.
