Looks Like Google Has Penalized Web Design Library For Selling Links

Another site penalized by Google for selling links:
Quote:
We all saw this one coming: Web Design Library, the website that was using Twitter to renew paid links last week, appears to have earned a Google penalty.

While I was researching last weeks article, I saw the site ranking at No. 8 for the term web design. Today, Im seeing it at No. 48 for that same query.

But the more obvious indicator of a penalty is that the site no longer ranks for its own name, Web Design Library.
Five Days Later, It Looks Like Google Has Penalized Web Design Library For Selling Links

The tweets shown in the article almost look "Vince" is deliberately trying to get t-mobile and a number of other companies in trouble for their paid links. Or maybe he's just dumb.

Google slapping down the big sites for cheating to dominate search results is good news for the little guys who don't cheat.

Why would they use twitter to renew links. That is asking for trouble from google. I like that the sites that pay for links are getting penalized it evens out the search results.
