    And also covering their butts' by firing their SEO company.

    JCPenney and New Algo

    I think you all must have heard of JCPenney.com case few days back..
    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/13/bu...e&ref=business

    And As far as I know Google's new Algorithm will lower the rankings of the sites having a lot of irrelevant links and I have seen few cases where rankings were dropped except this one..

    Now my question is Will Google lower rankings, if a competitor get a lot of irrelevant links to his competetitor's site? I am just confused.. Or am I getting anything wrong?

    As far as the story goes, JC Penny was reported to Google after an manual investigation by an outside party.

    Yes, I know.

    But there was a statement claiming algorithm also lowered the ranking..

    Google claims its algorithm caught on, as J. C. Penney dropped from the top slots for many key phrases earlier last week, but Matt Cutts says his company took it a step farther and manually removed J. C. Penney from the top search results as well
