Hi there, I have been using this company that makes manual back links etc and in the past (pre Penguin) they have helped me get in 1st stop for these particular keywords. I have recently lost this site due to a long story, so I created a new one (but as a DOT co), with same keywords, keyword density etc etc. Made new articles in Ezine and all the other places that I posted links in before. Anyway they claimed to be Penguin safe, so I was going through the report they made for the initial work and found some links posted in an Italian website written in English linking back to my site. I am wondering if this will automatically incur a google penalty at all? as I think in Penguin the are cracking down on this? and my site doesn't seem to be doing a well as the other one, could someone please tell me if this is ok, or it is dangerous for Penguin? thank you.
