    Is anyone seeing websites making any kind of progress with rankings? I'm working on 4 fresh sites and not seeing any movement in the last 3 weeks, and I normally see some sort of change whether it be up or down.

    If Penguin is a time released update, then by theory, backlinks that were working before penguin, would still work now on new websites/websites unharmed by penguin, yes?

    Let me know if you are seeing any kind of progress from your backlink efforts.

    I recently got my fresh celebrity fan site ranked in last week. It could be a specific issue with your sites. Are you doing it right?

    At the moment I am not doing any link building.
    Waiting for everything to settle down.
    Except few High Pr links, bought few 2*PR6,1* Pr7, 1*pr8, sticky posts, no movements. Next pagerank update should be huge :) from 0 to hero :)
    Anchor was url, but url is targeted keyword, safest anchor ever :)

    I just know that we should definitely use social media.
    From the insider (ex. google worker who quit just 4 weeks ago), twitter retweets work, they are a ranking factor, but their life is short.
    These retweets show google that website has something new/current to offer, hence people are retweeting.

    Take advantage of Google Plus as well. There is a way to get do follow from Google Plus. They are also letting the link juice to flow from Google Plus as they want to bring in more companies/website that will later work on acquiring friends, hence googlePlus will have new users.

    I am overburried with work and cant work on new linking schemes and signals but soon.

    Still linking.

    Before Penguin: Prime KWs were @ #3 & #4
    Penguin day: Prime KWs were @ #80+
    Started BLs again with little to no anchor text diversity on high PR Blogs
    Today they are #18ish and #5ish

    It's not recommended to continue with the same anchor text with little to no diversity but we did it anyway. It's also important to note the rest of the site is still dead. We have not built links for the rest of the site. The only pages that returned are the ones we're backlinking.

    However, based off of threads and info gathered, I would say our pages will fall to the abyss the next time the Algo is run. So our method probably isn't advised. For immediate SERP gain and revenue stream, it's working for us in the interim. Our site is so large, we're not going to be able to blackhat SEO the rest of the site back up. It's going to be easier for us to open a second store on another domain.

    Blog comments with HIgh pr are working right now but have to be very careful where you put the link .FOr example a PR6 with OBL of 100+ will pass on less juice as compared to PR6 with OBL less than 30.
    I have couple of MNS ranking well by just doing High PR backlinks,Social bookmarking and some wiki links.

    Yep, I am seeing considerable improvements across most of my sites.

    I'm building backlinks as I used to, just adapted it a little bit.

    I've had a dozen of sites fall to the abyss of google,but the one that remained and the one that actually rose in rankings was the one I didn't SEO that much at all.So,I went to GKWT and got all of the keywords I could about that niche;there were a hundred or so of them and added a dozen of unrelated keywords - the generic ones like click here,url,this site,etc.

    What I'm about to do is go through the list religiously,posting on high PR blogs.It's balls to the wall with this one.I'm going to give each and every keyword several quality links and we'll see what happens.

    By anchor text diversification we mean using random keywords in your anchor text to build links.
    Frr example if your site is related to unlocking iphone then instead of using unlocking iphone as your keyword all the time in your anchor text you must diversify it by using keywords like click here,visit my site,unlock your iphone,iphone unlock etc etc

    I'm finding link building still works a treat. A few changes since Penguin (more content, more link text diversity, more platforms, slightly slower, less "spammy" link) but link building working just fine.I don't think that's going to change any time soon.
