    It's been 4 weeks now, wtf... am I gonna have to buy a brand new domain and start from scratch without any redirect or anything? Sucks man....


    Has anyone had the penalty from the 301 redirect removed after the 301 redirect was taken off? I assumed the penalty would go away once the link juice from the old domain stopped flowing to the new domain, but it did not.... what are my options now??

    Don't they usually give a 90 day penalty, minimum?

    seoreports - it's wasn't a traditional manual penalty, just your typical penguin filter

    i was hit by penguin and then 301'd that domain to a new one... worked well for a while and then the penalty/filter/penguin thing transferred over finally about 4-5 weeks ago... i removed the 301 redirect about 4 weeks ago, but now the penalty remains... which is discouraging

    yeah. i don't know why you redirect a penalized site. That's like pulling over and telling a police office you were speeding earlier and would he please write you a ticket for that.

    plenty of people 301'd after penguin to a new domain and got their rankings back for a while (myself include)... it was worth it for a while and I'm glad I did... but now the penalty transferred over to the new domain and I'm trying to see if the new domain is salvageable

    i doubt it. still don't understand why you would want a tainted site to follow you around the web.

    When your site is penalised.
    1.Redirect all links pointing to your site to another site (a site acting as a placeholder)
    2.Create good content on your penalised site and submit a reinclusion request.
    3.Recirect link juice from site in part 1 to your current site.

    It remains to be confirmed that it is the 301 the cause.

    You could have triggered another time the penguin filter which is refreshing almost once a month.

    I'm thinking that the redirect got rid of the penalty.. but then google came in and ran penguin again and my site got hit when they did so

    Redirect the penalized domain to a competitors site since it is useless and report back with your results. Better yet, use a script to take the penalized site and redirect it to a list of competitor website after detecting a Google crawl. lol Would be a funny test case anyway, but don't do it as it is highly unethical. :)

    Redirecting all links that might have gotten you a link penalty to another site is not retarded. Trust me.
    2.Creating good new content on your penalised site and waiting the allocated time before asking for a review is common
    3.Once you get your site re indexed/un penalised, you should have figured out what good links exist, redirect them back to your site.

    Finally a person comes into your thread and takes the time to give you actual good advice, and you not only disregard their advice, but insult them.

    Your future is dim my friend.

    Sorry, but submitting a reconsideration request is never good advice. I've done it many times and failed every single time. They simply do not work if you have ever done any blackhat type of link building.
