Lessons From Penguin Update - Follow The Rules

From Danny Sullivan over at http://searchengineland.com

"The Penguin Update launched on April 24. It was a change to Google’s search results that was designed to punish pages that have been spamming Google. If you’re not familiar with spam, it’s when people do things like “keyword stuffing” or “cloaking” that violate Google’s guidelines."

Bottom line, follow the Google Webmaster Guidelines.  In other words, don't bite the hand that feeds you.

This is actually a very sharp statement coming from Danny Sullivan. I mean, I follow him and Randfish for their wit pertaining to the search engine ecosystem. And they have been telling and predicting to the point. And yes, I agree with what Danny has stated. SEO is just about leading your website based on the guidelines the platform where it is moving provided. If you are not there to follow, then your website has no reason to remain in its index, especially in the first page.

Really like this line "don't bite the hand that feeds you". If you try to manipulate the Google's algorithms, then surely you are digging a ground to bury your site in it. Don't try to build excessive spam links otherwise Penguin is ready to attack. I would like to share one interesting blog on Penguin, which I found worth reading. http://www.dpfoc.com/ireland/google-penguin-update.php
