    I have noticed an interesting phenomenon while researching a penalized domain. If I search for

    domainname.com keyword

    the site doesn't appear in the first 2 pages, although the keyword is present on the page. I repeated it with many pages and many keywords and it's the same.

    If you guys also have a Penguin hit domain, I would appreciate if you could check them for this and share your results here. Please state if you also received a manual penalty message in WMT or have a Panda penalty too. I am trying to find out if this is a Penguin thing, Panda thing or manual penalty.

    This will be very handy in the future to diagnose problems and pinpoint what penalty one received.

    For what its worth

    uk[keyword].co.uk keyword

    Does appear as first result - hit by panda and penguin. No message in WMT. No manual penalty.

    I've tried with one of my site which was hit recently and with my KW + domain i am first.
    I did not receive any WMT message.
    My site just went down form #2 to nowhere.

    Hope it helps :)

    Just tried on a manually penalty website, however my site still appears number 1 using "domain + keyword"

    Figured it out. It's because of manual penalties, the sneaky kind when you don't have a webmaster tools notice. Hope it helps someone!
