The problem is, Google can change what they "value" in a flash. Last year it was so heavily geared towards brand sites. I'm in a niche topic, but they were giving more weight to generalised but branded sites with extremely thin content. They seem to have turned down the brand dial since then, thankfully.
Just reading the fear in this forum. People are scared to link to external sites or even other content on their own site. Google has so many people running scared and contrary to what they tell us to do, people worry that even the simplest thing (such as internal linking) might result in a penalty.
Some people are gullible, and others are paranoid. That's just human nature.
Remember, a lot of people are afraid of Google because they have reason to be.
If all of this is linked to boosting sites with adwords then that is illegal.
Im getting same thing.. well I dont use adwords but seeing that my main keywords have gone are your results being vomited like mine? If all of this is linked to boosting sites with adwords then that is illegal.
My traffic has been decimated today across all sites, checking logs something happened last evening UK time.
