Unfortunately, when optimizing your website for the best possible search engine rankings, sometimes Google may penalize you or any SEO company which may be working outside of their guidelines.
 
There are a lot of ways you can be penalized. The most common ones include: 
  • Having unnatural links to your website.
  • Having unnatural links from your website.
  • When your site is hacked or is found as a hacking/phishing site.
  • Having content that adds no value or there is little of it.
  • It features pure spam or it has user generated spam such as forums.
  • It features cloaked redirects.
  • It’s stuffed with keywords or hidden text.
  • It features spammy free-hosts or structured mark-up.
 
Other types of penalties include:
 
Algorithmic Penalty – A website usually triggers a filter and the algorithm assesses you as a penalty. These are multiple algorithmic penalties which include Panda, Penguin, and unannounced updates.
 
Manual Penalty – Someone at Google issues you a penalty.
 
Combination Penalty – This is a combination of both the above penalties.
 
Different applied penalties include:
 
Site Wide Penalty – All rankings are gone and your whole site is affected.
Keyword-Specific Penalty – You have some rankings for keywords but you haven’t worked on the most important ones.
Page-Specific Penalty – A particular page isn’t ranking while the rest of your pages are.
