Written by Josh Bernstein
Once upon a time, there lived a happy webmaster. He went about his webmasterly duties and regularly updated his website to reflect the latest SEO best practices. One day, he was visited by an evil Black Hat Magician who told him by stuffing keywords into places on his website and creating duplicate content, he would be able to jump to the top of Google and enjoy riches beyond his belief. What the webmaster didn’t know was that Google pushed out algorithm updates and he was penalized. His website disappeared from Google and he was never able to recover from these over-optimization penalties. The End.
