    Penalised Wordpress website

    Main Keyword: 1 500 000 exact monthly searches
    Related Keyword : 200 000 exact monthly searches
    CPC ~$0.50
    Niche: Entertainment

    This domain was penalised for around 3 months with + 50 slap from 40th to ~ 90th position for its main keyword (1 500 000 monthly searches) and + 100 for related keyword (200 000 monthly searches) from 20th to ~120. The main reasons for this penalty were 301 redirects from 2 bad domains and SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 plugin.

    What we have done immediately after the penalty?


    We created 30 quality postsand contacted reputable blogs in same and related niches. So 30 quality guest posts done and we left the site for observation for two and a half months.Two weeks ago we started a new campaign for this domain because it jumped up to 30th position for the main keyword and ~25th for the related keyword.
    After just two weeks main keyword climbed up to 20th and the other one to 18th position.


    We analysed Top 10 Goolge results again and I noticed that almost all competitors don’t have decent post length. In the best cases – a sentence a few words long (less than 10).


    What is Our strategy?


    Content


    • Five posts per day
    • At least 50 words post length.
    • A 500 word length article each day published on the website's blog (same domain).


    For a month it is 50×150=7500 words from posts and 500×30=15000 words from the blog posts.


    Linkbuilding


    • Manual blog comments (special twist)
    • Co citations
    • Random manual bookmarks from 20 different social platforms
    • Acquiring strong competitors backlinks if possible
    • Facebook page
    • Google Plus Page
    • Twitter account

    No more than 25 backlinks/mentions per day. Promoting the domain as a Brand.

    I hardly doubt to start a penalty recovery service anyway. If something works on a slapped website in a large niche it should be powerful, right? I follow the trends but I have own theories and I just put them to the test to find out if I am right.

    is this really a recovery.. if you have bad 301 and remove them sure the rankins are jumping back ???

    the rest is normal seo. if your competition has no content they should be easy to outrank.
    but anyway good luck.

    301 transfers the penalty to the new domain. Follow the news (a bit old already)

    Do you want to share with us how easy it is to outrank 4-5 year old websites with thousands of pages and thousands social signals, co citations, brand mentions, backlinks etc? In addition most of them have good amount of traffic, bounce rate and pageviews in niche with "1 500 000" monthly searches.
