Folder Naming Penalties for Specific Keywords... Do they exist? Donutsafter3pm msg:4157070 7:30 pm on Jun 22, 2010 (gmt 0) I am trying to determine if Google dampens the results of or penalizes folders based on the folders name. For example, if a page's URL is www.website.com/advertisements/ or www.website.com/promotions/ Does any page that lives under these folders suffer because there is a keyword that google detects as spammy?

short answer: no longer answer: the only time i have speculated that that might be the case is when you have a /links/ section. However, it seems that the section did well or poorly based on the content and not on the URLs. Running some tests showed the same results.
