    New Google Penalty

    It doesn't have a catchy name, and people generally refuse to talk about it because this particular penalty requires taking responsibility. It's much easier to blame the +-30 penalty, the Sandbox or the new 950 penalty than it is to accept that you've been nailed with the most common penalty of all. What is it you ask?

    It's the My Site Sucks Ass And Google Just Figured It Out penalty.

    Wheee! Thinking about Google makes me feel all spinny inside my head.

    What are the +-30 penalty and the 950 penalty? Are they as much fun to think about as the suck ass penalty?

    I knew this was going to get moved, despite the fact it's a completely facetious post.

    Anyway...

    The 950 penalty is a theory that, for certain reasons, Google might drop you "950 spots" from a top ranking, or to the end of the SERPS, basically. -30 penalty is theorized as the same thing, dropping 30 spots in the SERPs.

    I've been over at webmasterworld watching those threads related to the 950 and 30 penalties. it's crazy how many people are so intent on these penalties and hover over them, and others like a hawk. How can you do that and not go crazy?

    Wonder if they'll ever have a 420 penalty, or a 69 penalty...I bet they'd go over better with the SEO crowd..
