Google apparently looks at the meta keywords tag (or for any other onpage clue it can find) for confirmation to disable the Google Bomb filter.
I am absolutely convinced the dial on anchor text just got cranked up on a considerable scale. What I'm worried about is are they trying to encourage over use of keywords right before a new Penguin update?
Can you tell me when you say that the dial on anchor text just got cranked up, do you mean that keywords should be used in the anchor text or shouldn't be used a lot?
I see a site a site sat at the top of page 2 with just over 100 links and over 50% of those are the target phrase.
Looks like somebody tripped on the network cable on our server again. NO traffic for long periods today. 20 and 30 minute periods of absolutely NOTHING! Well, at least it can't get any worse that zero? Can it? Come on what gives? I'm still in the serps, but ZERO? Did every on the planet die?
