Site age: 2003 Suspected problems:
Apparently things in Spanish are delayed a bit.
My site is in Spanish, some pages got the minus 30 penalty and most others got the 950 penalty, just yesterday January 12th.
Whats going on?
June 27 got the 1st big hit. Things recovered by the end of September and now this!
Come on guys at Google!
Please make up your minds, am I a black hat or not? (of course not but the guys at googleplex seem not to figure it out for once and for all)
