Google Penalties: Beware of These Shady SEO Tactics

In the Natural Search Arena, Google is the commissioner and the head referee. If you don’t play nice, Google will throw a flag.

In many cases, sites receive a Google Penalty for shady SEO practices that may have been performed years ago. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help you:

1.) Identify spam when you see it
2.) Clean it up
3.) Get out of Google’s penalty box (if you’re ever thrown in)

Visit our blog for more useful tips on Google Penalties and the SEO tactics that can get you in trouble: http://www.oneupweb.com/blog/google-penalties-beware-of-these-shady-seo-tactics/
