Google Slaps Marketing Company Portent for Unnatural Links

Even though this is about a company receiving unnatural incoming links, if his client was hacked it is a reminder that everyone needs to monitor their own site carefully so you don't get accused of selling links or worse, get one of those "this site might be harmful" notes added to your results.
Another day, another penalty to report. Ian Lurie, Chairman and Principal of Seattle-based marketing company Portent, revealed today his company received a manual spam action notice for unnatural links from Google. His site now can be found on Page 60 of Google.

Lurie shared a few theories as to why Portent was penalized in a blog post today revealing the penalty. It could be because one of his ex-client's sites was hacked, resulting in 59,000 pages of spam pointing at Portent, or perhaps it's due to several sitewide links all with exact match anchor text of “Internet marketing by portent”.

Well, maybe a marketing company should have known better and been monitoring for links. On the other hand, I'm still annoyed that Google expects us to monitor and remove or disavow bad links.
