    NOTE this is a filter for big brands but gives pre penguin results on google

    This is very cool (but very sneaky by google)
    http://www.seroundtable.com/google-penguin-check-15165.html

    It is a filter giving the likes of amazon and ebay a kick up the serps,or by what I can see immunity to penguin,great post.
    It works!
    e.g
    your keyword -ebay.com
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    I tried it, but didn't notice anything different. Not sure if it's just my keywords (which a few were hit by Penguin) or the trick doesn't work. Cool article though!

    So how does this give you your pre-penguin ranking back?

    I didn't realize I had been hit.

    Wow, what the hell? It's like an EXACT copy of how they were right before the hit... what the hell? What does this mean? Sorry, i'm kind of shocked lol. Must be pulling some cached results or something from god knows where... thats only updated like once every 3 months or something lol... But still cool!

    Imo(and i may be wrong),it indicates one thing the penguin filter wasnt applied to the big sites.
    it was a common knowledge before too,but now it is like a evidence.

    Agreed. If ever there was proof of G favoring 'larger' sites, this is it.

    Here in the UK it seems to be working with any negative parameter, not just -amzon -ebay etc. Weird!

    My website was sitting in the 2nd spot for two keywords responsible for an easy 2k per month term.

    Now the site is on the 2nd page and it's all due to "Penguin".

    I've been reading about things I can do to get my respect from G back but this is really upsetting!

    This actually worked, wow. Sure gives us some sort of insight on the Penguin.
