I'm just wondering whether identifying a service as being a beta version will impact rankings for that particular page. Any thoughts?

But does it have a negative impact on the rankings for the page it appears on - e.g. say you are promoting a new service about widgets and you label the service as (Beta)...do you think you are penalised in the rankings for widget services because it is essentially not the finished article?
