I believe this is a fairly accurate account. Unscrupulous people who prey on uneducated site owners…about ever evolving and changing parameters by Google and other SE's. Google is every bit a guilty, as the flyby SEO agency who offered 1000's of links for a few $$$ as is the site owner. I think they still need to be more transparent.
At least they are giving us decent heads up with their new efforts on mobile friendly sites. I know of 10 families wish they did the same a few years ago about Panda issues.
