That's a big if, who know for sure? Seems to me that it would be too easy if penguin simply devalued the links.
So when it comes to links, Penguin seems to be doing one of the following three things (unless anyone else can think of another option):-
1. When it comes to "bad" links, Penguin merely devalues them
2. When it comes to "bad" links, Penguin imposes a negative weight to them
3. When it comes to "bad" links, Penguin simply ignores them and doesn't do anything
Or perhaps it does a mix of all 3 above depending on the link-type. Maybe some "really bad" links get a negative weight, some are merely devalued, some even ignored?
