    Big Bad Blackhatter Busted

    The major US mail-order department store J. C. Penney was top of SERPS for just about everything they sold.

    Was there something suspicious happening? The New York Times newspaper decided to investigate. Yes, there were enough black hats to fill a hat rack!

    Losing no time, the NYT squealed to Google. Google SpamFuhrer Matt Cutts took action, and J. C. Penney disappeared from SERPS.

    Read the full story at: http://searchengineland.com/new-york...n-google-64529

    So there is a lesson to be learned:

    if you use black hat techniques and if somebody manually investigates you and if they tell tales to Google about you and if Google think you are worth a manual investigation and if a Google employee thinks you were naughty then Google might manually penalise your site.

    so it will be better that if someone is using black hat technique then hide from everyone to avoid getting spam from goggle if your friends cheated on you. It becomes more difficult to get rank

    Most of the SEO companies use black hat and I do not see any problem in that if your website is relevant to the keyword and people find it useful.

    This is an extreme case of link buying something like 2,000 links. I am not by any means advocating or defending, but it important to understand the scale.

    You think 2,000 links is extreme? It is nothing compared to what some pharma websites do.

    I invented the term "spamfuhrer". It may be my only contribution to posterity.

    Thanks for the insight. I had no idea that this type of activity was such a common practice.
