seopenalty.com reported my site has a high penalty from Google

    I just checked my site with SEO Penalty tool and found my site has a high penalty by Google (10/10).

    Is this tool accurate? I just wondering if my site has been penalized or not. If yes, which is the exact caused on this. :) Thank you very much.

    set up Webmaster tools account and validate the domain. See if google responds with a message about a penalty or problem. They often do.

    As a site owner you should be the one to tell if your website is penalized or not..!
    Just look at the stats, ranking, visitors and conversion rates and if you're ranking fairly well based on your linking profile and getting people to your website (organically) instep to convert.. then you're not :)

    BTW, How such tool would really tell if your website is penalized ??

    Think about, it might be looking for high keyword densities or multiple repeat of the same in a row.. and might even look for hidden text based on the text content color and background color beside size and CSS.

    My point is quite simple, it could be a great tool but it's your call to decide whether to tweak your site or not ;)

    Hope i was clear and helpful ;)

    Right off, I see lots of nofollow trickery going on with links. That may be part of the issue. Matt Cutts recently said that page rank sculpting was being down played by the googlebot.

    I don;t know if that would be all of the issue though. I doubt it.

    You're not doing any of this stuff, are you?

    Thanks but no :) I did not do type of black hat seo to harm my site. The nofollow link just because those link are affiliate links and I do not want to place them directly. I think the nofollow with 301 redirect via .htaccess may not pose any threat. Do I understand correct?

    Sxperm, yes you're doing just fine.. I've just tested the tool and guess what I've a client site getting 1-2k visitors per day from Google alone and the tools marked the site as a very high risk of 10..

    Well, have also tested 10's of other sites including dummy nor under constructions sites..

    Here is the results: most of them are 100% clean of not violating any kind of terms as well as being indexed in Google, but were marked as penalized sites :)

    Bottom line: IMHO, I think that you shouldn't count on external tools such as this one ;)

    OMG...

    If you put some big site, like tibia.com, or a big charity site, like kiva.org, the site set both to HIGH RISKY!

    Go to hell --'

    A large percentage of these types of tools are just scareware. They try to put the frighteners on you to up-sell some product or service that they try to convince you will fix the 'problem'. In the end analysis, you need to apply common sense and do your own research to check the quality of your site.

    Admittedly some of these types of tools can be useful, but it's important to check their reputation - as you have done by asking here.

    No it is not accurate. You don't need to worry. It's just a useless site which creates unnecessary worry.

    i think this site is checking your title, description and keyword meta tags and compare to your contents

    if your meta tag is too long or too short, it will penalize you. If your meta tag doesn't correspondent with your contents it will penalize you too...

    some how i have a feeling "Sxperm" is trying to promote his site here too..

    It is up to you buddy :) Why should I promote my site here? I posted my url because I want people to come and analyze my site compare to the report made by this tool. I have only 3 peoples visited my site from this thread. :D

    Anyway, thanks for your analysis on how this tool work.

    seopenalty has no idea if your site is penalised. Its just guessing and has no supporting documentation to validate its calculations!

    It was showing 10/10 for one of my site few days back and the site was out of serps..;) and now the site is back and it shows 0/10. But It shows 10/10 for High Traffic sites.. Even it will show BANNED for the sites that are not registered yet..:D Example: dhuhgr.com, shgcuhsdgudhkdg.com..etc
    As the domain is not indexed in Google so it is showing BANNED..;)
