It's just the next phase forward in Google's war on SEO spammers, Black Hatters and abusers. (And don't forget… "Gray Hat" SEO is just Black Hat pretending to be White Hat!)

Here're a couple of recent posts from Justin Brooke's Facebook pages at https://www.facebook.com/sitefling:

SEO BLOODBATH? Yeah that's what it feels like lately...

Daily emails coming in from people with SEO horror stories.

Now they want to listen to me...

They laughed when I said blog networks, SENuke, ScrapeBox and all that jazz was bad for them.

It's not funny now though!

Yeah, I'm tootin my horn hard, because I deserve it. I'm right and I have the answer - like it or not - you can't ignore it.

Stay tuned, I've got your back.

Predicted the future again...

Have you heard of the new "Penguin" update. Basically means you can't choke your content with ads. Too many and you're penalized heavily. Taking them down does not immediately rectify either.

Coincidence that Google says 728x90, 300x250, and 160x600 are the best sizes to use - AND - also the very same sizes I've been recommending in my traffic course??

Nope, these are the most widely accepted sizes and constantly provide the most clicks. If I can see this information, so can Google. They realize other ad sizes are not benefiting the visitors because they are being ignored more often.

Design and optimize for the READER... They are the ones buying from you not Google.

Want a killer traffic tip? Make a website people tell other people about!

The Google penguin update is looking at such things as what types of websites link to yours, how quickly you acquired these links, and the anchor text used by the linking website.

What to do if any site effected this update:
Here are four suggestions to start cleaning up your site:

* If you have links from too many unrelated sites, such as directories, either remove some or try to get more links from related sites. You should have links from related websites at the minimum at 20 percent of your overall links.
* If you have too many keyword links coming in, then vary your keywords and mix your brand name and URL in the links. Have at least 20 percent of your keyword links be non-keyword or brand-based.
* If you are doing sponsored links, be careful! Cancel or remove any links you have from footers. Remove any sponsored links that don’t include a text description next to it. Contextual links are much better, meaning it’s better to have links from within text content of a website.
* Make the above changes a few at a time and wait a few days to see if rankings come back, before proceeding. However, Penguin will only run periodically like Panda, so it could be weeks before any affected websites recover their rankings.

Just wanted to further add to the other bits of great advice that a good way to look at this is to see it as a good opportunity to do an audit/overview/refresh of your site, content and internal and external links. Make sure you have not overstuffed your content with keywords or keyword repetition and ensure that your site has genuine links on keywords that are relevant to your domain and business name.

Those people looking for a "fix" or a "fast way" out of Penguin are surely going about it the wrong way. Google is sending a message which is, cut the spam, drop the tricks. Create quality and do the hard work. Shortcuts that are sold as solutions might work today, but will be tomorrow's penalty.

I think the best thing to take away from this post is to also stay away from 'gray hat' practices. Most people don't even view them as being black at all in nature, but Google does. If there is anything semi questionable about the way you are generating links stay far away!

There is no quick way to the top of the search engines. Quality content and organic links are the way to go.

Yes... as far as Google is concerned, GRAY = BLACK posing as white.

It's even worse because Google makes the rules and aren't always clear as to what they are until their next update. Some people have gotten hit with an update while using tactics that were once considered 'white hat'.

SEO professionals need to be extra careful these days. The line between black and white and even gray is becoming very blurred.
