    Hey guys, I currently have a website that is affected by the Pengin penalty. Although it's not as severe as some (I'm mostly on lower page - 3 for most money keywords), it still will just not budge no matter what kind of links I build to it. I've gotten some great PR links, tried to diversify my anchor text, and while one keyword moved 2 spots it will be impossible for me to top Amazon when I was #1 for my terms before amazon and a far worse affiliate site started pushing me down.

    I'm sick of Googles attitude with the whole penguin situation, but there are no refreshes coming for a while I'm guessing... however, I was interested to see if anyone had successfully redirected their website somehow?

    I know that a straight 301 to a new domain will pass the penalty over - however, I was wondering if anyone had success passing it through a web 2.0 property (such as weebly or wordpress) and then redirecting to a new money site? I've given up on the website for now, but I have a hard time letting it go because I did spend a lot of time creating the content and making a great design. My bounce rate is only 7% with almost 3 pages per visitor on average, so why Google will take old links into consideration over user signals is beyond me.

    Anyway, thanks for any help in advance!
