No it is YOU who are not reading FAR ENOUGH. Continue down that same page you just quoted (pg 5 - Notice how the first paragraph ends with "PLEASE READ THE WHOLE SECTION?", I guess you did not) to the very end and ONTO THE NEXT PAGE (PG 6) EXACTLY WHERE I SPECIFIED. It says: "As you see, pages with the same content may be assigned vastly different ratings based on the absence or presence of a ppc program."
from what I'm gauging it IS on a page by page basis, but only within certain domains. In other words, once they find a domain to pick on, it seems they go through it on a page by page basis, as I think it mentions in the doc as well. I don't know, maybe if you get enough bad pages they eventually tank the whole domain, but not in our case. We have a couple pages on our tanked domain, which have retained #1 positions since they were full of content and did not have adsense ads. While ALL the pages on our entire other domains have been untouched even though they follow the same pattern as the tanked ones (except most don't have adsense) and are even interlinked with them. I'm guessing they either simply haven't gotten to eval them yet, or already decided the domain was harmless, or possibly because the home page is redirected to the tanked domain and they missed it.
Need I say more?
