Google BLOOPSince I am offline today, figured it would be fun to post a new SEO term I spotted in the forums today and tomorrow.

Today's new term is BLOOP!

As mentioned in a WebmasterWorld thread, BLOOP stands for BackLink Over Optimization Penalty.

Yes, when you have way to many backlinks, likely with too similar anchor text. Can it lead to a penalty? If so, name it BLOOP!

This webmaster said:

For the first time I trusted a SEO-Company and what they did was idiot link building, resulting in a BLOOP Penalty.

I told them already that they should remove immediately all links they built.

What are the best steps after a BLOOP Penalty?

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.
