Google “Minus 30” Penalty

Do you have a page that used to rank #1 in Google that is now suddenly ranking #31? You may be the victim of what’s being called a “minus-30
penalty.” Check out the High Rankings forum thread and leave your comments.

The person who started the thread has got their rankings back, and they’re blaming an automated link building service that created a bunch of new incoming links in a short period of time. It’s a little early to be certain that’s the culprit, but it is suspicious.
