Minus Thirty Penalty
Posted 17 October 2006 - 12:21 PM
Anyhow, I propose they change the name to "Dirty Thirty" to liven up the topic.

First I've heard of this - what's it a penalty for? and -30 from what?

Prolly related to trust rank or human review.
unsubstantiated stab in the dark possible theory...
It could be a case that if you are ranking well in a competitive serp and don't quite cut the mustard content wise then you get a little mark against you from the eval team and..kaput, you are dead in the water, holed below the water line, engines flooded, cut adrift with the flotsama nd jetsam.

But I really wonder how many of these folks are really as 'legit' as they profess.
Some admissions were ... (paraphrased)
... put up 100 'thin' affiliate pages.
... some pages have only a single sentence and tons of adwords.
... a site map with 400 links, all containing one common word.
... I pushed the boundaries.

The rest of the site wasn't affected however, if I'm honest I always thought that they were ranked artificially highly and are now probably in a more realistic position.
Guess I better kiss goodbye to that extra pocket money.

We also suddenly dropped out a lot from Yahoo. We had 150+ pages indexed by Yahoo, now we have 3!
So the - 30 penalty is no rumor - we are experiencing it first hand and it is a major pain for us.

I hate to break it to ya, but the re-inclusion request isn't going to help.
Your site was never de-included, so there is nothing to re-include.

I don't know if the re-inclusion request was the key, but we had been suffering from this penalty since August, and now 4 days after submitting that re-inclusion request - bam - we are back. Coincidence? I don't know.
I am aware we weren't "de-included", but I figured it can't hurt to submit the request. And it didn't hurt!
Jehockman, Digital Point's Co-op ad network can get you a lot of back links very quickly. I think that was the mistake - I don't recommend experimenting with it on any sites you care about.
