Search Engine Penalties Are Scary, Says Most SEOs

You Afraid of Search PenaltiesTamar wrote a piece named Do Search Penalties Worry You? I had her add a poll asking SEOs if they are scared of search engine penalties.

The 98 responses are back and it is about split. 56% are afraid of search penalties while 44% are not afraid of search penalties. Personally, I would be afraid of a penalty, even if I was to be hit by collateral damage. I am surprised that more SEOs are not afraid.

Here is the break down: :: Yes said 55 respondents or 56% :: No said 43 respondents or 44%
