Ever have a feeling your client was hit by an penalty, but you can't quite figure out which one?

Google organic penalties can be hard to diagnose. This post from Koozia will help.
It goes into Panda, Penguin, Hummingbird, Payday and a little about Pigeon.

With so many Google updates leading to so many reasons why websites can suddenly or gradually lose traffic and rankings, it can be hard to know where to start. In this post I?ve looked at the different types of Google penalties (and those that are not, strictly speaking, penalties at all) to help you diagnosis your site?s issues and get on the road to recovery.
Especially check out the Panguin Tool shown at the bottom of the post. Note that it only works if you have enough organic traffic coming to your site to spot trends. So if it's a really small Mom and Pop with only have a few visits a day, it may be impossible to identify spikes and drops.

What do you think???
