I am generally a risk taker and not afraid to lose. Nevertheless I sometimes find myself worried about a google penalty. But then when I read all these stories about penalties I ask myself: Do really so many people get penalized? Not talking here about pure spam sites. Or about sites with very thin content. Who here has websites which provide at least some real value to the world have a decent amount and quality of content not stuffed with keywords or other obvious newbie mistakes have a more or less quality link profile - meaning no obvious spam / some diversity links / reasonable anchor text who here these kind of sites and got penalized by google? How often does this really happen?
