    For those that have been punished by google in the past for using bad backlinks or black hat links ...did they punish all your pages/keywords or just the ones that had black hat backlinks pointing to them.


    I guess i am wondering If i have 20-30 keywords ranked on first page and only 3-4 are using black hat backlinks and lets say google notices and decides to punish me. Are they going to punish the whole site meaning i will have none of the keywords on first page anymore or are they just gonna punish the 3-4 pages that have bad links pointing to them.

    In short, only google can answer this. In the past I've had normally the main url hit and the others remain but in all honesty anything can happen. Your whole site can take a hit, the main url can, it can be 10-15 down or 100+.... I wish I could answer more but nobody really can answer this..

    Thanks for answering and i am it makes sense that there is no way to know for sure but i am hoping few people would chip in to say what happened to their site so i can see what is more likely to happen.

    My experience says, when they punish a url, then other pages of the same site remains safe if there is no problem.

    .

    On site wide penalties I?ve noticed...

    Keywords that are punished normally drop to wherever

    Keywords that previously didn?t rank, now ranks, as if they replace the punished keywords
