Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

I am liking comment on Google Has Manually Penalized Mozilla “I can understand that this could result in seeding poor content into the SERPS. But at the end of the day Mozilla is trying to give people good useful tools that they can use and isn't always gonna have time to waste on cleaning up comments on some of their pages or blogs... At the end of the day people are interested in what Mozilla can give them, not what is written in the comments section. And now because of this penalty people may not even find it.
