Google To Home Business Owners: You Are Not Welcome Anymore

Google YouTube Wordpress hate your home business


As far Google (and other) are concerned your home business is not welcome.

If you have not heard about this then you are missing some very important information and, if you are not prepared, this can seriously damage to your home business.Google (which own YouTube and Blogger) and other sites such as Squidoo and WordPress.com consider Network Marketing nothing more than SPAM and want it off their sites.

Google YouTube WordPress hate your home business

 

Many sites such as WordPress.com, Blogger, YouTube and Squidoo are deleting accounts promoting Network Marketing and affiliate systems. The terms of service from WordPress.com 

states:

Blogs that violate our (WordPress.com) advertising policy: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate program and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes.

The accounts being deleted are not just the ones promoting a specific opportunity. The “Experts” and “MLM Gurus” found everywhere these days are finding their YouTube accounts wiped out. Recently I came upon one of Tim Sales YouTube channels where many of the videos had been removed for “terms of service violation”. The videos in questions did not promote any specific business or opportunity. Ty Tribble found one of his Squidoo accounts wiped as well.

Tim Sales YouTube Slapped

Are Facebook and Twitter far behind?

Google sets the industry trend and it is only a matter of time before other sites follow suit and start deleting accounts promoting home businesses.

I have also recently learned that even Sound Concepts – a company that provides marketing and hosting services for many Network Marketing companies is having Google remove its videos from YouTube for “copyright violation” If you have a YouTube channel promoting your network marketing company and its products, check to see if the content was created by SoundConcepts. If so,you may be getting a nasty e-mail from YouTube very soon.

The network marketing playing field has just been leveled

What does this mean to anyone trying to grow their network marketing / home buisness to make a better life for themselves and their family online? Well, as Ty puts it; “The playingfield has just been leveled”.

Building a lasting and sustainable home business has always been about making connections and building a network. We teach our team how to make connections – free simple and duplicatable. Your team should do the same for you. If not, here are some tips to help you out:

Approach everyone you meet online (and off) with the intention of getting to know them and making a connection first. Don’t talk about your product / system / opportunity until youare asked.  If you have done your job right by then you will know if they even care about what you have to offer.

Besides, people buy from people they trust. You could be selling the cure for cancer (and some of you think you are!) but no one will care unless they trust you first.

Take a close look at your Facebook profile. Ask yourself this question:

If someone with a profile that looked like yours tried to reach out to you, would you believe they are actually interested in you or are they just trying to get you to give them money?

This is the modern day equivalent of the old saying “would you buy a used car from this person?”

    I like this it is very interesting and informative. Thanks, Chris

  2. Mindy says:

    Wow!! Great information, Chris! Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. sandi says:

    Thank you Chris. Very true. Very informative.

  4. It’s true, the scammers who promise things like “$40,000 In 40 Minutes” are making it difficult for honest, hardworking people to do the right things with their viable micro-businesses. Those are the kinds of marketers we want removed if Google has a mind to do it. Smart marketers will stick to better methods of approach and true networking. You are so right to suggest a reality check for everyone, too. There’s a wide gray area between the most professional and the unscrupulous!! The worst part is that there are scammers who pose as good guys. I’d like to take a few of them out! 🙂

    It looks like instead of going after the more blatant spammers, they are “throwing the baby out with the bathwater”. There are a lot of people engaged in self branding finding their educational videos deleted.

    No one is sure where they will draw the line – will they pull an account that posts info about an MLM webinar?

    If one’s home business team is doing their job right, there is no need to turn your profile into a walking billboard.

  6. Thanks Chris, It is sad that the real home business mlm suffer because of all the scams. Thanks for the information.

  7. Pete says:

    Incredible! We all suffer due to all the bad eggs

    I knew Squidoo was going after the network marketing industry but I didn’t know these other companies were too. That doesn’t make a whole lot of sense because, like you said, they are throwing the baby out with the bath water. There are lots of people out there offering quality content but may get slapped down because of the wide swipe they are taking at the industry just to get rid of a few scammers. Hopefully, these companies will take a step back and realize that they are doing more harm than good.

    One tip I would add is to make sure that the content you are putting out on social networks is of good quality. I mostly use Twitter and I get people who follow me but when I go to their profile, they have nothing but self promotional tweets in their stream.

    I don’t have a problem with people promoting their business. But if your entire stream consists of tweets of commercials for your opportunity, I’m not going to follow you back and most other people will avoid you as well. Why? Because there is nothing there for us. Most people don’t like commercials but are willing to sit through them and even check them out if the program is of interest to them. If you have good, useful content in your Twitter stream then people are more likely to listen to what you have to say. Just my two cents.

    Thanks Chris .. I never know this until I read this …

  10. My concentration for my direct sales business on personal development and “how to” market training. I offer, rarely, website information. I feel strongly about offering valuable content and then building a rapport. If this leads to a purchase then we have already developed a foundation of trust. Jo

  11. Chris Kavas says:

    Hi Jo,

    What we are seeing is that even those that dont talk about their business and simply provide education are seeing their profiles get canceled. I think anything that has to do with MLM no matter how benine is fair game to them.

  12. astrozen says:

    So what are google going to do about the scammers in the more traditional MLMs? Such as the importer->distributor->wholesaler->retailer MLM. Just because in this system a retailer has a shopfront doesn’t exclude them from being part of a MLM network.

    We vote from our pockets and with our mouse clicks – if you feel strong enough about it you know what to do 🙂

  13. Debi Konnerth says:

    Hi Chris, all the more reason to host your blogs on your own hosting account. 😉 The only way my blogs can be deleted is by either my hosting company or myself. Of course, if my hosting company does it, they just lost a good customer as there are other hosting companies out there competing for my business.

    I guess it was only a matter of time. Here come the JUDGE! Thanks Chris for the information.
