    I wasn't affected, but i stopped for a bit. When I stopped, my site rankings started to drop, so I'm back to backlinking

    I'm going at it too, I didn't get affected at all with penguin, except fill in the gaps where competitors fell out. Manual web 2.0 first tiers I've been building. Small amounts of forum profiles and commenting in the forums.

    I did one backlinking today. However, I really don't think it is of much help. Some people already took my rss feed and publishing my links on their sites (not the entire posts). So I have been always getting something. But it doesn't seem to have any effect on my pages. They still remain ignored.

    I continue but I've never used the so-called backlink packs because I use my own technology.

    I continue eventhough I was hit by Penguin.
    I just try to go with higher quality links.

    Business as usual + creating new sites.

    I'm still firmly of the belief that the update is an ongoing one and things will settle in a few weeks and the results will at that point look much more realistic than they do now.

    When you speak of good links, you are still unsure what kind of links to build. if you ask me, Guest bogging is the best weapon. You can find a few guest post exchange sites. It might cost you $2-$3 per link but it's worth it.

    I've completely stopped any form of linkbuilding as I've been hit pretty bad on almost all sites. Guess the linkbuilding still goes on whether penalized or not :D
