    Salut comrad!

    Summer is coming very fast here up north, you can see grass growing already and summer breeze feels great against my masculin beard..
    I think we have survived asian invasion, that panda was a joke dont you think? but you never know what is going to happen when it's too late... like eye of storm, shit starts to look scary
    but in a short moment all is going to look good again.. until you notice that your hand just got chopped of by elevator like boris hand did? haha oh those were the good times! We drank alot that night
    and boris went to sleep early.

    I hope you and your beautiful family the best.
    i will protect our passive income stream at front lines hoping the best, see you soon in the field again!

    Sincerely
    Kirkonpolttaja

    Salut!

    Google launched new algo update a week ago, i heard that there were alot of casualties at south patrols but they are keeping it at bay, sounded like
    a huge fight.
    How it going at your end? It's getting warmer here and my sites are doing fine, trying to keep them safe as much as i can with setting up random
    watch towers as landmarks, corner of it pointing back home. I heard today that if you build your army with new personel, they need to be trained,
    given apprentices and after in mass, exposing all of them to google to scare it off until next wave.
    Not sure .....*page torn*

    Comrad!

    Sorry i havent been able to send you letters, there has been a wave of continuous attacks from west for few days now!
    My sites are struggling like almost most of my groups sites, they are fading fast!
    Now i have to go setting up new watch towers and blowing bridges, will get back to you i promise.

    salut

    We got intel from our commander that the newest google algo was baptised as penguin!
    Why in the world google would name it as penguin at this time of year?... who knows.
    Penguin was deploid to execute those on sight who know SEO too well, punishing us for taking care of our sites, doesnt make sense.
    I have cometh to conclusion that this newest algo update is communist, trying to make us all equal in ranking and making it suck for everyone.
    Those who dont do SEO wins the game... one thing has been keeping me wake for some nights... what is googles logic?
    This new algo attack punished those who didnt set up watch towers and those who did like i did, they say that it was due to taking care of your sites too much?
    I tought internet would thrive on fresh content?

    I will sleep over this and will get to you when all is lost so i can whine you about aftermath.

    Pissed off greeting from

    Hey

    Now it has been 2 weeks of the attack of our beloved communist penguin and sites are somewhat floating back up.. whats going on?
    Maybe this is a somekind of warning shot to make us SEO'ers scared for our livelyhoods? logic of google is still making a fog of confusion in my head
    but i think i can now explain this situation to myself and others.
    Few days ago i decided to go out of the camp while others were sleeping and i put up ALOT of watch towers, my site is doing now much better...
    where is the penalty for making watch towers? i tought it was not allowed by google in this newest algo?
    Those who stripped all their love from their sites got good results aswell... in my opinion this doesnt make sense, why would google reward
    sites which are now more inrelevant for the keyword? if i would try to get myself yellow onions, i would get garlic, it doesnt make any sense.

    I will setup basecamp outside of our post and see what i can do, will keep you informed comrad!

    Modestly relieved

    Hey again!

    I set up a small camp with few of my apprentices when others were at sleep, we have now established good basecamp for watch tower building!
    By the looks of it penguin is going back slowly, looks very promising.

    I found this letter under my sack, i will add it with this letter, looks like i wrote something yesterday when we had small party at our bunker haha!


    Diary log 2567

    Yes!

    I found a cure! now today, 4.5.2012 i have seen HUGE changes in my ranking, i didnt do anything else than start doing watch towers again!
    And in matter of fact... i'm doing the same thing that i did when that stupid panda came to our basecamp and drank all our rice wine!
    I will inform all sectors with this intel, hopefully we will win this war before summer so i can drink coconut rum with my comrads at sunset!

    Thanks to you and pass my regards to your wife aswell

    Sincerely
    Kirkonpolttaja

    ps. we won!







    Congradulations for you if you managed to read to this point, hopefully this will be somewhat different to read than common case studies and you like it, you can wait for sequal which will most likely
    come when newest google algo is released and we are AGAIN in deep mud struggling.
    If your interested in buying this story for movie purpose, PM me.

    repost, posted to wrong place at first :)

    It is turning into an animal farm where all domains are equal but some are more equal than others.

    Great post, though I reread the thread for like the 4th time to get some clues about what's going on, lol!
    I like the way you present your case studies which makes things really interesting... I'm just wondering -

    basecamps = 2.0s?
    watch towers = spam comments links?

    Do you use lots of new keywords (or even plain url) as anchor texts with your methods? I've a good few sites burned to grounds and I'm still not giving up on them just yet!

    THANK YOU!

    basecamp = VPS
    watch towers = Guestbooks, imagecomments, blogcomments

    Answer is in the text, i discuised so that those who aint serious about IM wont find it, but if your IM'ers you should get pointers and if you understood the message, it's the right message and use it! this doesnt have multiple conclusions :) only one, so the one you pick up is the one.

    I didnt use lots of keywords, but now i'm throwing in "click here" backlinks aswell to make my linkin more diverse.

    Sites which are burned to ground should me advertised via forums and public boards around that niche until google comes back with way more logic algo.

    Good to know that my case study helped out! :) Hopefully next algo update is way more logic than this one.
