    I may be wrong but Iam 100% sure I have over anchor link optimization penalty. My site is not ranking for one keyword at all. It ranks for a long tail version of but not main keyword. I used to be 2nd for the keyword before panda/penguin updates. I redesigned whole website so it has to be anchor link penalty. I had problems with this penalty since feb/march never got webmaster warrning. I know my ranking droped feb 17 after major network deindex after that it kept droping not sure for how long but its gone.

    Since my domain has 100k links based on webmaster tool it what the best way to recover? I will not do any 301s. I tried high pr networks and press releases still keyword not ranking.

    whats the best way to check anchor link variety of the site? I used hrefer but I gues webmaster tool is the best.

    I would greatly apreaciate all the reply....Iam sure some of you have experience with dealing with such penalties. I thought about constant xrumer blast but not sure if this would help or hurt at this point......
    Domain is pr4 and 3+ years

    What is your anchor text profile looking like? Do you know if you mostly just blasted your main keywords for those pages? I definitely would avoid doing an xrumer blast.

    not sure. I thought I had it mixed short and long tail keywords but obviously not good enough.

    Make more links - so it slowly, and have very diverse set of platforms and anchor texts including "click here" and "this site" and all those other generic ones.

    I have two blog both are #1 in Google, after penguin and panda update I am just focus on content. In your case, I don't think its keyword penalty. You also using long tail keywords that are good and fast rank always. I will suggest check your site, I think it's over optimize case so check you site such keyword density. You can also optimize your anchor text such like Anchor Text Enhances the Relevance of the Target Page, Using Keywords in Natural Text to Create Anchor Text, Optimizing Anchor Text of External Links. Links from external sites help your site to gain relevance for keywords mentioned in the anchor text, which boosts your site's ranking.
