    Trying to Find an Article on Google Adjusting SERPs to Detect Manipulation


    I remember reading an article awhile back about how there's an aspect to Google's algo that will drop a websites ranking specifically to see how the webmaster responds. With that a lot of knee-jerk reactions in response indicates that the webmaster is merely acting to manipulate his rankings.

    I need to reference an article that covers this, but I'm having trouble finding it again so I was wondering if anyone could help with a link on this. It's the aspect of their algo that adjusts serps to detect manipulation.

    thanks.

    I've always though Google is looking over your back...One reason I never use any of the magnificent free google tools...many free tools require putting google code on your site and letting google use it as they may and that's generally not really in your best interest but theirs. IMO used exactly for that type of intrusion. To see what your doing.
