    it is better to create a new site actually.

    Removing links and reconsideration might takes up to 3-4 months, you can build 1 great website with that period of time also.

    I would wait a week, let google read all these threads, then find out what works and go to work.

    I agree better to start with a new site and use White Hat SEO and not black hat. Good luck.Find a good .com or .net and get busy! :)

    Wait. If its not a manual or auto penalty and just an algo change effecting you its always worth waiting a few days. Things may well go back to normal in a few days, you never know how these updates will play out. I normally ignore fluctuations caused by algo changes, continue adding unique quality and stop any blackhat/greyhat link building.

    Keep building links, don't do anything weird or different. There is no such thing as BH links unless they are injected/hacked sites. If you use SEO tools then it's just automated white hat or white hat on a grand scale.
