We hear from google over and over again about unnatural backlinks. There a lot of kinds of unnatural backlinks you could have so that your site is getting penalized. This should be black hat seo, right ?
But, what if your competitors are hiring a SEO company or just pay to someone a few bucks to run a campaign with black hat seo software like Xrumer to generate such unnatural links for you and your site is getting penalized ? Do you think google is able to make any difference who run the campaign and who posted the unnatural link ? i don't think so. Wouldn't it be nicer of G to just devaluate such links ? I think that thanks to the new "improvements" of Panda/Penguin there is getting much and much easier to slap your competition. And beside, i think Penguin is a big big failure.....just check the result you get for your searches on google...lately it's getting harder to find what you were looking for ....I just think that a lot of quality sites were devaluated by mistake...
