Yes in Digital World, Google is considered as “Lord of Search Engines” but this may be a controversial statement as in China & Russia Google’s presence is negligible. These countries have their own search engine like BAIDU & YANDEX respectively which are quite popular. But in rest of the world as shown in below info-graphics on Search Engine Market share GOOGLE is the King. So let’s talk about only “LORD Google “right now. But before that just check these infographics of May 16:
If you happen to search, of course, Google search for phrase “Wrath of God” …the following definition of the bible is shown “The fact that God just means that He can and will judge between right and wrong and He will administer justice in accordance with His standards. “
Now let’s see what is Google’s mission “Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”. To achieve this mission, Google constantly reinvents its algorithm to show the best useful and relevant content to its users.
“Voila”! There is a similarity between Wrath of God & Google’s mission statements. As God judges between right and wrong as per his standard so does the Google and if Google finds sin, the penalty is assured.
So what is Google Penalty?
In simple words, Penalty is the result of misdeed done by you on your website knowingly or unknowingly to get ahead in SERP based on the update in Google Algorithm. This penalty can make your entire SEO effort go for a toss. There are 2 types of penalties; manual penalties and algorithm penalties. In this guest blog I will limit myself to manual penalties pertaining to Web designing.

Over here I have tried to jot down how a good website can be designed .In spite of all the precautions we take but due to constant tracking by Google it becomes important to avoid being getting penalized.
Pls go through this Info-graphics and it will clear the air on Google Penalties for Web Design.
At last, I would conclude with following note, Pls make a user-friendly website and not for any search engine. User has to be satisfied in all respect as he is at the core of SEO. If the basic principle is followed than SEO will show its organic results and there would be no “WRATH OF GOOGLE”.
