I suspect that Google is doing something to limit the exposure of that.
Which is ''why'' I want to implement something here. Relying of something
external is not a control, it's luck like the honor system.
This search produces some hits when I tried it.
This is the first hit.
That 2016 account has (quick look while on almost one cup of coffee) six
links and this as the text. Please don't @ me for spreading spam. ;)
> Watch Movies Online Free. Watch your most loved films online free on
Putlocker. Find a huge number of most recent Movies on the web.
> Putlocker Movies, Putlocker TV Shows, Popular TV Shows, Popular Movies,
Free Online Movies, New Released Movies, Latest Movies, Latest Released
Hollywood Movies, Top Super Hit Movies, High TRP Shows
Which remains my point. Now look at this search in Google.
While this is a similar problem for the whole site, the first hit for me
is this one. It's a 2017 account.
When not logged in, this is only text.
> kazMPIRE MOVIES LIFESTYLE
And that's it.
Look at the profiles.wordpres.org link while not logged in.
(That's a spammer too despite having legit topics and I'll bash both
accounts into oblivion next week).
