Has ANYONE actually been nailed for keyword stuffing?

    I keyword stuff my descriptions like a mofo and have never been hit for it, even though they say they don't like it. I'm curious what other people's stories are, has it happened to you? Did they explicitly say it was for KW stuffing your descriptions?

    About a year ago, I would do this ALL THE TIME. It helped more than I would have imagined. A few months ago, I decided to test it out again and did not really see any improvement at all just from keyword stuffing. That being said, no, I have never gotten a penalty for it. I always seem to end up with the dreaded unnatural links.

    I have seen a site get hit because of kw stuffing, I cannot post the site here for obvious reasons but it must be the major reasons for not showing it in the google results. It's better to stay away from kw stuffing if you're looking for something long term. :)
