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.

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