"The risk to quoted companies from search engine penalties"Summary
Did you know that online businesses can be severely affected by accidental search penalties?
On 14 April 2011, experts in internet search explained search penalties and the risk to quoted companies in short presentations to an audience of fund managers, analysts and financial media
