seo bombTwo weeks ago we ran a community poll asking if you think an SEO company should be penalized for the work they do on their client sites. The results are pretty interesting.

  • 38% said the SEO company should be penalized no matter what.
  • 33% said the SEO company should only be penalized if they did not disclose to their client what tactics they were using.
  • 25% said the SEO company should never be penalized, it is not their problem.

We had well over 200 responses but please read my poll disclosure policy before jumping to any scientific conclusions.

Are you surprised by these results?
