    When Google believes that SPAM techniques are being applied to a page, it might respond to them in ways that the person engaging in spamming might not expect. Rather than outright increasing the rankings of those pages, or removing them from search results, Google might respond with what the patent refers to as a time-based ?rank transition function.?


    The rank transition function provides confusing indications of the impact on rank in response to rank-modifying spamming activities. The systems and methods may also observe spammers? reactions to rank changes caused by the rank transition function to identify documents that are actively being manipulated. This assists in the identification of rank-modifying spammers.

    For me it sounds like an upgrade to the well-known "DANCE".

    Sounds definitely like the Google Dance.

    Yeah, this is nothing new. Just a patent on the dance and delay you get after link building.
