Leoghost tried to make the claim that Google never said it was about links,
whereas I actually said
Google has never said that Penguin is all about links
Removing the word "all" from my still visible original post, so as to make it appear that I was saying something which I was not, and then claiming to have "proved me wrong" ;)..You are merely refuting your own perversion of my post..
It doesn't prove me "wrong" at all ..merely that..
a)you don't pay attention to what you read when it is posted by others..
b)that you deliberately miss-quote others..
I hope that is a) and not b) ..but even if it is a) ..it doesn't help the discussion..
Not paying attention to exactly, and all, of what is said by Google and or others, before racing off to "prove them wrong" or take actions on sites, or advise others to take action on their sites..is the equivalent of purposely covering ones eyes and then complaining about being lost, and how the signposts are not visible..
Penguin is about many things, links is merely one of them, I have never tried to claim otherwise, ( only in your imagination )..as to what the other things are included within Penguin..study it..
Bear in mind I have suffered neither from Panda, nor Penguin, nor from the EMD algo, nor from the changes to the way Google deal with images..and I'm not "trawling for clients or selling secrets via stickies"..I occasionally advise ( for free ) some members here about what are potential problems, or actual problems with their sites ..99% of the time, the reasons for the "problems" are blindingly obvious..
This thread reminds me of the Panda threads..every one (except a small number of us ) were absolutely certain about "what Panda could not possibly be about"..
And now..everyone ( except a few of us ) is absolutely certain about what Penguin is about..deja-vu ..
So I prefer to ignore many threads now, (or only make the occasional comment in an attempt to open the eyes of some )..except when I'm willfully misquoted, as you did, in order that you could claim, that "you had proved me wrong"..
