In their webmaster guidelines I don't understand what Google means by:

--->Don't send automated queries to Google.
What's an automated query?

--->Don't load pages with irrelevant words.
What are irrelevant words? If I write "I like to buy chocolate, footballs and widgets" at the bottom of a page on credit cards have I just damaged myself?

--->Avoid ... "cookie cutter" approaches such as affiliate programs with little or no original content.
What's a cookie cutter?

--->Every page should be reachable from at least one static text link.
Do they mean one "static page" or do they mean that link should "remain in the same place for some time"?

What's an automated query?

Using things like automatic pagerank checkers.

What are irrelevant words? If I write "I like to buy chocolate, footballs and widgets" at the bottom of a page on credit cards have I just damaged myself?

List of keywords or keyword loaded paragraphs like keywords or keyword loaded paragraphs like keywords or keyword loaded paragraphs like keywords or keyword loaded paragraphs, etc.

What's a cookie cutter?

A definition ... "A cookie cutter is a tool to stamp out cookie dough in a particular shape. A cookie cutter solution is a solution to a problem that can be applied in many situations without modification, and the phrase is often used pejoratively due to its connotation of "unimaginative" or 'simplistic.'"

In other words using tools to create web pages and websites automatically.

Do they mean one "static page" or do they mean that link should "remain in the same place for some time"?

Static means static means static :)

If you are running javascript menus then you should have a static text menu...say..at the bottom of the page.
