Keyword stuffing + tons of backlinks with the keyword as anchor = penalization.

    If you somehow get around the penalization, then kudos. But this is old knowledge that so many newbies seem to be forgetting and then they are oh so surprised when they get their site dropped after blasting it.

    Some tips:
    1. get SEO Quake plugin for Firefox
    2. use it to check your on-page keyword count and density. density should be 10% or under (10% is high), and count should be 10 times on the page or under. don't blast your page until you've done this

    if you experience a drop in rankings, fix your on-page and you should come back in a week or two.

    most penalties are not permanent, so take a deep breath and use some preparation H before you start calling your mother about all your problems. :D

    Thank you for the info. I was wondering were I could check my keyword density.

    No problem.

    Still boggles my mind that people don't know these things.

    Thanks for the post. It's part of the initiative to cut down on useless content farms. Focus on original and unique content.

    Its actually that not just quantity, but quality of backlinks also matter

    If quality of backlinks (from high PR sites) and contextual backlinks are there, then chances of site getting penalized are less.

    and yes, its a good plugin to use :)

    It's actually a very old penalty, nothing to do with content farms or panda. Look up keyword stuffing and you'll find results going back to 2004.
