Google Penalty Identification & Removal Tips

Pupoint Designs How do you avoid your SEO strategy being penalised by Google's algorithm updates? We'll show you. First, let us clarify. What's the difference between algorithmic & manual penalties? ALGORITHMIC PENALTIES are imposed when Google releases an update to their algorithm that affects your website. * These penalties do not require a reconsideration request to be revoked. * Algorithmic penalties cannot be verified by Google Webmaster Tools. Instead, you have to analyse traffic drops to your website and match them up to the penalty. MANUAL PENALTIES These penalties can be handed out (or revoked) by a member of the Google web spam team at any time. * These penalties require a reconsideration request to be revoked. * Manual penalties can be checked by visiting the 'Manual actions' tab in your Google Webmaster tools account.
