So all Google talk about not being able to hurt other web sites is just not true anymore? If this is the case there is something wrong with Google and their new "spam detection - link buying" algo.
Anybody that is a competitor can ruin your rankings over-night and there is nothing you can do about it. It's scary if this is what's going on right now.
Guess all we can do is to get some bad blog sites and some rinky-dink web sites with a couple of articles instead of creating a real site because this is what I see in the serps right now.
It's kind of "funny" but I also see a lot of good results, it's just that I have been penalized for something I can't figure out. It seems, just like menial says, have to do with links, link devaluation, or anything else you can come up with.
It seems that Google have let loose a monster with tons of changes to the algo. A lot of the changes is just rediculous while some seems ok and that is why we don't see a lot of posting here right now. It seems like they have "saved" some searches like widgets for sale, but then if you get away from the beaten path then it gets all scr@#d up.
One thing I have seen also, is that a lot of times they group sites together by misspellings (spelling?). I found a page of mine that had a misspelled word and it makes me wonder if you can be penalized for not being able to spell correctly?
Guess anything is possible right now.
