Great article! I wonder if Ben Horowitz will pull strings to get the penalty removed.. If so, I for one will be pretty annoyed. My website http://www.getrightmusic.com recently got smacked with a Google penalty and it took a solid 4-5 months to clean up my back link profile and get the penalty revoked. RapGenius needs to put the work in just like every other site that catches a penalty.

Oh the irony. "Put the work in..." It's hard to be sympathetic when what you call a back link profile is what us wiki, blog and forum operators call comment spam and SEO crap, all abuses of our services. It has been hilarious watching you all beg us to delete it for you now that Google has caught on to your shenanigans. Even your hand-authored comments are barely distinguishable from your spam...case in point above. Good riddance.

Sad thing is their site is genius. All they need to do is the work. And they're telling on other sites... smh
