    Hi,

    I am writing things which google consider as spam.

    1. Misleading Redirects
    2. Keyword stuffing (A page with hundreds of keywords)
    3. Purposefully duplicate content
    4. Spam linking schemes

    Sites penalised by Google Penguin have numerous similarities. These include:
    1. A large quantity of low quality links coming in, such as link networks on the same IP address, reciprocal links, comment SPAM, sidebar links, SEO directories or forum signatures
    2. Over-optimised keyword anchor text being used, i.e. a high percentage of exact keywords in inbound link anchor text in proportion to phrase and brand
    3. Low quality on-site and off-site content, including a large number of pages targeting similar keywords (essentially, content duplication)
    These all seem to be prominent features for sites that have suffered a dip in rankings since Google Penguin arrived.
    Some site owners may think this is harsh; especially sites with exact domain match (i.e. those containing keywords within the URL). However, this type of site still needs a natural link profile with varied anchor text that incorporates longer tailed keywords and focuses on brand or URL amongst a spread of differing keywords. Otherwise, Google Penguin will flag up such sites as SPAM.
