    Hi

    Google took manual action on SOME links pointing to my site (anchor texts).

    Is this a permanent penalty? Will it ever go away if I do nothing but wait?

    It's not a penalty. They just devalue certain links. Nothing to worry about, but your links are smoke.

    But what about the anchor texts? They targeted certain anchors. Will I ever rank again for these keywords?
