Because I'm ethical and focus on making my site better. Unfortunately that is not true for 100% of the population. We all know this though...
Amazingly enough lack of experience is my point.
Ethics have nothing to do with this... if you are not experienced in this you can't possibly achieve any measure of success... any successful initial attempt would be a fluke... which is what most people have...
They lacked experience and fluked their own way right over the edge.
I don't believe everyone lacks experience another issue might be complacency.
Again, getting nailed for unnatural links isn't about links that "do nothing but look spammy"... the links in question actually had a positive impact on your results.
