Up until last week, if you searched the hotly-coveted keywords “Make Money Online” in Google, you’ll see that one of the top-ranked results is the blog Moneymakerinfo.blogspot.com.
Now, if you go visit the site, you’ll see a Blogger.com’s announcement saying “The blog you were looking for was not found.”
It appears this top “make money online” blog has been deleted by Blogspot/Blogger, a blog platform owned by Google.
The blog’s owner, Alan Liew, confirmed the deletion in this email conversation posted in this thread.
Very bad news. You know what the Blogger team did. They have set their system to permanently delete my blog. Yes, this is what they done to me. This means my blog will not be able to restored and this is the end of moneymakerinfo.blogspot.com.
I’ll issue a refund that I can afford. I’ve spent some money on SEO fee.
I built the blog using 4 years. 3 years in top 3 rankings in Google. I post unique content, No gambling, sex or any other non family-friendly content. The blogger team has reviewed by blog about two years ago and they are OK with it. But yesterday, suddenly my blog was deleted by them permanently. Seems like they see the topic ‘make money online’ is spam now.
What they are doing is totally ridiculous.
Give me some time on the refund issue.
We don’t know yet exactly why the site was deleted but rumors have it that the site was tagged a “spam” site. Although the owner claims what he was posting was unique content, some were saying in various discussion forums that the articles were really Private Label Rights articles (PLR) or content that are sold to various users who may or may not revise the same content. Others say some articles there have been posted without permission, thereby infringing copyright.
Whatever the reason for the deletion may be, the message to publishers is clear. Better host your blogs on your own domain. Do not rely on free blogging platforms such as WordPress.com, Blogspot.com, etc. who may have the final say whether to continue hosting your blog or not. More importantly, focus on creating unique and valuable content that readers will find useful.
Update April 29, 2010: Upon checking today, the blog has been restored.

That was what happen on my health blog. I build it for one year. Having 15k uniques on SE and was only deleted by Google without warning. I am earning $300 from that blog on adsense. I am
Sa case ni monymakerinfo, madali lang magban ng website eh using blackhat tools. Alam kong gawin yun. Baka naging victim siya. hhmmm..
Grabee ang bilis naman nila magdecision. Kawawa naman si Alan,I’m sure malaki laki din nagastos nya sa SEO. First thing na sumagi sa isip ko baka kasi panay ang blackhat SEO nya kaya naman top talaga yung site nya. Yan tuloy number 1 nanaman si Kidblogger, wahaha. Ikaw James number 3 ka parin, that’s good kasi you sure deserve it! 🙂

I just clicked on the link and the blog’s still up…
I just checked and it looks like the site is back online. Maybe blogger.com reconsidered? In my case I moved to a self-hosted wordpress from blogger.com last year when my blog cannot be opened by users who used IE 7 and it was caused by the google connect widget, even after I removed it from my blogspot blog. 5 days passed and with no solution in sight, I migrated my blog and I’m so glad I did.
Yep, it’s back online again! Good it may seems, but these free blogging sites have disadvantages. Besides, owning your own domain is getting cheap nowadays.
seems like it is back! wow. but it’s nowhere to be found with any of the keywords it used to dominate. at least di sya na-deindex. pede na rin. at least he still has a fighting chance. mahirap nga lang.
Looks like it’s back indeed. Still searching the net for a post from Alan about this, but I’ve not found any. Probably he’ll make an update in the next few days. Still, I think the lesson for us is to host our blogs on our own domain so we won’t be put hostage by the blog platforms.
I was searching for it using the keyword ‘make money online’ in the search engine. I didn’t even know it was deleted by google until I read your article here. Sorry to our fellow blogger and that was so sad:(
Are you guys serious?! Or was Google serious?! They must have re-installed it for a day then re-delete it! Couldn’t find it anymore, perhaps they’ve permanently deleted it. hmmm

That is the downside of not having your own blog, and just riding on a free blogging platform as you are at the mercy of the owner.
Good thing the blog was restored, but what Big G did is still ridiculous.
whew! that was quite a wake-up call … shocking that it could happen to anyone … anyways, i’m glad the site’s up and running 🙂
It seems that Google is now on track for those who are solely on make money online blogs. Google has been clearing the results of their search engine to provide more value to its users worldwide.

It’s bak again, No.1 on ‘make money online’ search.! I think its better to invest in your own domain specially if you considering your site as long term and there are many cheap hosting sites with free domain package.
Well, I am thinking that Google is just exercising its one-sided Kingship most especially on a property it wholly owns.
The owner of the blog should now be planning to eventually transfer his blog in a self-hosted platform.
Google is sometimes crazy just like any other King…
Hey! Genuinely it’s really possible to earn money online; I really felt that this website is quite impressive and a great idea to earn hundreds of Dollars daily.
The difficulty with Private label rights articles or reviews is the fact buyers tend not to use it in the right way. People should either put it to use to obtain ideas for subject areas to write about or perhaps totally re-write it or spin it and after that place their own identify into it.
