has anyone noticed that the website we are talking about has a virus according to google.

Websites are a difficult thing, a few tips that I found is fill as many pages with data as you can. Do not copy anyone else's work, google will give you a penalty if you are word for word just like another site. And submit a site map using google webmaster tools. Here is a link to webmaster tools just in case.

Since we are talking about my site, I would like you to show proof that there is a virus. Spreading lies about a site is not good. I always check several different ways to ensure there is nothing.... Including the link that you gave which is web master tools. If you are thinking about the popup that was not working in IE, that was not a virus but an application that did not work in IE but worked in the other browsers. Google is not reporting any viruses. I have attached screen shots from 3 different sources. All my sites come out with the same results. If you have proof of a virus I would gladly check it out.

I just proved it can be done in another thread and with a single page of crap content and it was done in 48 hours. Can they be guaranteed, no but you stand a very good chance. A better chance than leaving your site up to it's own devices.

first off it was not my intention to spread lies about your site. I said according to google as it could be a false positive. Second I agree with your search engine tactics but you can be penalized for some of them them.

I attached the screenshot of what I got today.

This is what I am guessing google was pointing to

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://marketing.avantuspayments.com/in.cgi?default" ></script>

You did not place a virus on here by posting a photo. Everything checks fine with my AV.

Answered this in the other thread. As for being penalized, if done incorrectly yes but I am VERY careful that does not happen. Always lean towards the cautious side. I find that after about the fourth month of doing the link building, your are hard pressed to damage the results because you have so many links out there and now Google just naturally assumes that others are helping you spread the word about the site.

The object is to get as many links from as many domains that you can using your keywords.

Default Offering a bit of Help

@ Doc....Windfsmall is correct that there is a problem. When you click on the link to visit your homepage...it kicks you to a site selling medications. Not sure if Steve's site got hijacked or yours.

Google ad-words placement- Don't approach it until you are somewhat educated on what it can or can't do for you. You have a better chance if you are trying to get top billing for a specific location doing specialized work than selling something to people everywhere.

Next...ask friends and family what key words they would use to find what you offer....mowing, tree pruning, landscaping and so on. These are the keywords your going to pay for with Ad-words from Google. Ok...so what exactly am I paying for??? Your paying for per-click advertising meaning when someone clicks on a link to go to your site..it costs you money.

This in no way shape or form means business or a sale!!! Just that someone has clicked a paid link and hopefully landed on your site. You still have to sell yourself & business through your site to translate that into a sale. Watch your website stats as some not so honest people will pay others to click links all day on their site to make money.

Then the bidding war begins of who is willing to pay the most per click on those keywords. What I can tell you is that with one of our business...bidding going over 3.00 a click is not uncommon. So set a budget for the day,week and the highest your willing to bid on any keyword. Google does the rest including collecting your monies into their coffers.

I know its a lot to adsorb so do a little research and if you have specific questions, I would be more than happy to help. Also check around for first time accounts and free (Usually 100.00) from Google to get you hooked...I mean started.

For those reading this post, it seems the virus issue was resolved on that site.
