    As the question states, what types of SEO activities would have a negative effect on your ranking on the SERPS for Google & Yahoo and worse still could get your site taken off the index?

    Here's a few to get the discussion started:

    keyword stuffing in the title, meta or on-page
    spammy links with little to no anchor text variation
    Paid blog networks
    Paid links
    Excessive link velocity (too many links too fast)
