Poison word is associated with low quality content which cause search engine to lower the rank of a site.


Poison words, or forbidden words, is the name given to words or phrases that trigger suspicion, mistrust and loss of respect, or are of inappropriate character for a given web site in its consideration for a search engine. (according to wikipedia)
There is no list of such words. It will sometimes generate traffic to your website. But google sometimes does not advertise these, so better is to avoid them.
