When your website suddenly dropped in the last page of search engine results of Google, losing places of approximately 950 places down, you are hit by the infamous Google 950 penalty. Being expert in web marketing such as SEO is not a total guarantee of not experiencing this. What guarantees you of not being hit by this penalty is the virtue of carefulness. Optimize your site in just enough; exceeding would lead to spamming already.
There are rumors that since Google 950 penalty is automated, it can be prevented by a Meta tag that instructs Googlebot not to penalize your site through this HTML syntax: <meta name=”robots” content=”no950penalty”>.
Of course, this is just a fallacy. Only robots.txt has the capability of instructing the Google spider and for the purpose only of including or excluding some of your web pages from crawling. Googlebot is like a beast that obeys no one except its creator.
Here some ways of preventing Google 950 penalty.
(a) Put keyword on your page title.
(b) Put keyword on your page description and tag
(c) Put keywords in your content title
(d) Do not put your keyword as names for your images if they are not relevant to the images. Just indicate the real names of the images.
The best way of preventing Google from eyeing you as a potential candidate for Google 950 penalty, write your web content naturally. Ensure that the keywords you stuff on the content do not exceed from 5% keyword density. It is also good to put alternative keywords for the site to prevent repetition of words which is a sign of SEO spamming.
