Domainer Mike Mann gets the Boot from Google
Numerous articles from domainers are claiming a conspiracy by Google “blacklist” a charitable web site. Mike Mann’s web site MakeMillions.com has been recently delisted by Google. See the artcles here along with all the comments.
It looks like real story is that there was duplicate content at MakeMillions.com and MakeMillionsMakeChange.com and the meta description at MakeMillions.com said “Visit MakeMillionsMakeChange.com.” The Google cache of MakeMillionsMakeChange.com shows it was indexed in the last week or two. Most likely Google saw duplicate content and dropped one of the sites. Due to the meta tag added by the site owner it caused the MakeMillionsMakeChange.com to rank higher than MakeMillions.com. This can easily be fixed.
Mike Mann is a well known domainer who started BuyDomains.com and sold it several years ago. Many people dislike him due because he is always claiming his work is for “charity” and many people are skeptical. He also made his marriage disputes public on web sites. He also sponsors parties at domain conventions as part of his charitable work. He also owns SEO.com.
