Google Eviction Notice

A site that lets you do online HTML editing has supposedly received a manual action for unnatural links. So what the site owner did was post a notice to its user base in a big box saying "goodbye" that the site "has been penalized for unnatural link building and soon it will be removed from Google Search."

It is like the site owner feels they got an eviction notice and felt the need to post that notice on their own website. But the site didn't have to post this and the site technically won't be removed from Google Search, I mean, it is still indexed. But it posted this notice:

Webmaster Posts Google Penalty Warning

I don't think I have ever seen a site post a notice like this to their users, that Google penalized them and the site will go away.

I am not sure if this is some sort of link building strategy :) or something else but this is interesting.

I spotted this on Twitter:

The notice is on this page.
