I’m surprised big established sites resorting to spamming Google for revenue – there are so many other ways to make cash, why stoop to spamming.
For all those ready to blame this on SEO – Syndic8 getting banned has nothing to do with SEO, black hat or otherwise. This is a case of straight spamming Google and getting hit with their penalty. There was nothing “black hat” going on, Syndic8 did not cloak or hide their content, everything was out in the open.
