Has Google penalised your website? Are you now relegated to the third or fourth page of Google search results for your industry? These penalties happen to a lot of people, and it may not be your fault. You may have just hired the wrong SEO company. They probably overstuffed your content with keywords or tried to create excessive backlinks for your site. This sets off red flags to the Google search engines, and they can penalise you for such “black hat” behaviour.
