    Danny, great article. Small typo that says “June 2001” instead of “June 2011” just before you mention Panda Update 4.

    Peak spam? Aren’t we still climbing the Matterhorn? ;)

    Google should improve their indexing process so as not to index so much pure spam in the first place.

    It says something about Matt Cutts that he’s still a cheerful guy after looking at this kind of crap every day. If I were in his shoes, I’d have given up on humanity by now.

    It’s not rocket science, and Google has always been very clear: it values high value Content, good site navigation, and relevant links that are useful and in your topic niche.

    Google will penalize Spam, spammy links, unnatural and Paid Links, links to or from unrelated topic areas, and blatant manipulation like keyword stuffing.

    All the rest is noise.

    Google is removing websites without reason. If u do white hat seo, clean, good, and grow to fast, you will be banned. G wants us all to be stupid and just pay for adwords. What is the worst thing, is that nobody gives us an alternative. I mean, a good one. I would like the search “maket” to be divided in 3-4 search engines with about the same amount of users. But these are just dreams …

    Well, whatever Google says, it still comes up with lot of Gibberish, unnecessary results for many keywords I have often seen Google+ results which do not have good content but are purely ranking just because those people have a well optimized G+ profile. So whatever they write, it is still ranking as Google tries to integrate blogspot, youtube and G+ results in results.

    They should take this spam and make a spin-off search engine full of spam. Spam, spam, eggs and spam.
