    Do a competitive analysis and generate more in depth, rich content then your competitors. Include images and infographics and get a lot of social signals going on that baby. If you engage your visitors long enough on your website and reduce your bounce rate, the penguin when he stops by, he will give you the golden egg.

    Bro same thing happened to me, I was #2 for a keyword with 8k exact searches per month, after penguin my site dropped to page 200 ouch..

    Anyways I been doing some research on my niche and a few others and noticed that some of the sites ranking on top 5 spots have very big variations in anchor text links and they do not target the money keyword with their backlinks. Most of the sites in the top 5 spots on my niche have about 80% anchor text links to the domain name instead of "targeted keyword"

    My site that was affected over 80% of anchor text links were to the target keyword, now I am trying to figure out if I should create a new site or try to save my affected site any opinions on this?

    If you have a big site, do an in-depth research and compare your site to your competitors ranking currently. Take note, penguin is more about backlinks, do a backlink analysis on your competitors and compare it to yours.

    If you have a small site, simply do a fresh start.

    Im thinking that the reason i got so low ranking is because of my scrapebox blasts. I have used the same links on my blog as i use from my scrapebox fiverr service. Lets face it those links are crap now after penguin

    This didn't even work before Penguin, SB is not good to use directly to the money site.

    This could work:

    Anchor Diversity
    Backlink Diversity
    Quality Links, links that look natural, don't do big backlinks suddenly, do it safe, even if it means slower to get to your desired spot.

    You have to be safe with the latest google updates, make your backlinks look natural, keyword diversity, social signals and so on.

    What tool do you use to see the anchor text of the backlinks posting at your competitors sites or the first 10 in google?

    Thanks

    I am amazed that you were ranking with SB blast yet. I thought that was not longer possible

    Try to get backlinks from quality sources and use various related keywords, lsi and raw url's as anchors for diversification. Add more social signals to show google, that your website is active on social networks. You'll definitely get back:)

    Remove all spammy links. It's better to have 1 high-quality link than 20 spammy one's.
