  14. Today they upload the article with my link. The problema is that it has the attribute rel=alternate
  15.  
  16. What is that? I was searching but i really dont understand at all.
  17. What would you recommend me doing? To ask the seller to retire the attribute or its fine with it?
  18. Do nothing. Read this: https://www.searchenginewatch.com/2012/12/18/a-simple-guide-to-using-relalternate-hreflangx/

  20. WebmasterWorld Member Selen stated:
  21.  
  22. “Several competitors have created “review” websites where they feature a dozen of their own sister sites from the same business niche. These sites have an order form that is processed by the same (their own) company. To make it look “legit,” they added a couple of real competitors to the “review list” (with lower “ratings” of course).
  23.  
  24. They wrote 100% fake reviews of their own services and attributed a scale from 1-10. Top 10 sites have “rating” between 9.1 and 10 (and they own all of them). The “ratings” are 100% fake and bogus.
  25.  
  26. Google happily shows domains and fake ratings in the answer box on a very competitive term (eg. best {service}). It’s been going on for years, but now their dishonest efforts pay even more.”

  30. “…blackhat still pays and Google is still none the wiser.”

  32. WebmasterWorld member Milchan added:
  33.  
  34. “my niche is dominated now by one competitor that does exactly what you are describing and I know for a fact that google has been made aware of this, as well as all the fake false google reviews they made and yet chose to not take any action.
  35.  
  36. They have lots of doorway page sites (which is specifically mentioned against something google will ban you for in their guidelines), they have blog review/tips sites that do nothing but favor their own products and even talk down and scare monger to the point of slander other companies…
  37.  
  38. They even have one site that purports to be an official site for something when it is not in any way shape or form an official site… but (offer)… top 5 recommendation… all of which lead to YMYL sites that they own.”

  41.  
  42. These are not isolated discussions at WebmasterWorld. There are multiple reports in Google’s official Webmaster Help Forums, too.
  43.  
  44. For example there is one discussion titled, Fake Review Websites Are Created For Self Promotion, Stating Competitors As Scam, Hampering Business

  59. This is what the publisher reported:
  60.  
  61. “Our competitor has created his self promoting 5 websites, mentioning every other strong competitor as SCAM, driving all traffic and sales to his websites & they deliver poor quality work, so all face failure. “
  62.  
  63. Some major brands create websites that are standalone blogs and communities designed to reach out to potential customers. But creating a site for the purpose of outranking competitors and saying bad things about those competitors have some people upset at Google for ranking those sites.
