Recovering From a Google Penalty
This blog post at Search Engine Watch documents the efforts by an SEO specicalist to recover from a Google penalty. It’s great insight into how seemingly innocent past tactics can come back to haunt you at any time.
And sometimes, it really takes an experienced SEO to pinpoint the problem.
The post specifically addresses a site hit by a content quality penalty. Suggestions for duplicate content research begin with the use of Copyscape – a webtool that searches for duplicate content on the web. The post also encourages the use of original, meaningful, and up-to-date content.
