    Ok, just giving an update since everyone is curious about penguin stuff lately. I had some sites for client businesses that feel pretty hard after penguin. I honestly just didn't feel like fooling with them to try to recover cause I'll be honest, I was kind of lazy and told clients it was a google update and to be patient. I especially didn't want to touch anything, since no one really knows that the fuck kind of drugs Penguin took before it climbed the tower and went on a website killing spree.

    They went from the first page, to the 5th, then out out of the top 100. Then all of a sudden, a week ago, all of them were back on the first page at the top and holding! Even the ones that were on page 2 and 3 were on page 1. So what did I do... not a damn thing.

    After reading a bunch of stuff on that Meth head Penguin, this is what seems like is the case. I don't the G gave Pengiun the ammo to kill everybody, But I do think Mark Cunts tattling approach has had a lot to do with whats going on. It kind of seem like the Penguin focused on link farms again, and known link networks, and such. G has always been kind of pissy about "unusual domain activity" when you get a bunch of indexed links to fast that don't seem natural. I think now, they are just cracking down on ones they know about.

    So you can either be patient for a couple weeks, and see what happens, or drive yourself nuts! I didn't do a lot of special stuff to originally be ranked. I got fiverrs' for xrunner campaigns, link wheels, blog comments, social profile links, edu links, article submission and retweets. Once a month I'd just get the same fiverrs and I ranked high. and I'm sure if you have all the software you can do it yourself, but I'm cheap so I don't have a lot of them.

    I also use SEO Yoast and SEOPressor as I always push clients toward wordpress. Two other great plugins are seo smart links plugin, and search term smart tags plugin. I did that last one cause I notices a lot of time I'll search for stuff on g and I would get lead to sites that used it, and it only list the incoming search terms at the bottom of pages, sometimes not even having anything to do with whats going on.

    So thats my newbie way of doing things. Most of the clients I have have moderate to high competitive regional businesses.

    I've been doing (nothing) the same thing(s) after penguin hit and I assure you, I haven't regained the traffic I was receiving before.

    A money page on my site went from mid page 1 to not in the top 100 a few days ago and I have been stressing it.

    Now I will.
    1: wait and not touch that page
    2: build more pages to my site as I wait.

    I hope "doing nothing " works out for me...

    LOL, this is what I've been doing. I spent so much time on off and on page SEO to see my rankings disappear that I don't have energy for anything but to drink a beer. I'm still waiting for everything to fix itself, so I'm gonna keep drinking!

    Hmm I'm still afraid that this tactics will not help me, I still believe in that anchor variation thing, but good for you that you got your positions back. I tried to understand penguin for more than month, but still I'm too afraid to spend money I need for food and rent on services I'm not sure will work, so I'm mostly just updating, doing some social stuff and started to create new sites that should penguin like. I think I like "post penguin seo" even that stupid bird hit me hard, it is just good that you can be more concentrated on quality of your site and not spend whole day adjusting off and on site seo and especially hunting all day long backlinks. I hope that one day they will leave ranking based on backlinks completely. I still hate Mr. Cunt, because he should say month or so before what will penguin be about and how we should adjust our sites to be still liked by google if those sites are quality.

    Huh?

    Scratches head

    Asian face palm

    Russian face palm

    Down home south double face palm.

    Current mood? Bemused

    OP, should I thank you for for this uhmm, er, uh, enlightening strategy.

    In summation, you fought G's Penguin and Panda by not fighting?

    :mmph: :goodnight :painkille

    If we could get that strategy to work when it comes to the stock market, real estate investing, finding a wife and winning the Super Bowl, that would be awesome.

    This is how you win Bro.! You have got to FIGHT!!! And you have got to fight until you win!
