Google Penalized Beat That Quote

Google acquired and then penalized "Beat that quote" within a day.

Yesterday BeatMyQuote.com was purchased by google for £37.7 million. And within 24 hours Google decided to lower its ranking due to the violation of Google's webmasters guidelines.

As the news came out that Google acquired the price comparison site, SEOs like SEOBook called out the site’s aggressive SEO tactics. Aaron Wall shows how the site was using SEO techniques that went against Google’s guidelines, such as link buying, doorway pages and other questionable techniques.
