    My site is on 50-60th pleace in google serps for all keywords for over 1 year. Before was in top 10 then lost its position and move to 50th place, i wait couple of months and then my site was back in top 10 then i sterted to build some backlinks and this was my biggest mistake. My site got -50 penalty again till today (over a year). I'm still building backlinks, site is PR=4 now but still on 50-60th place for all keywords. How to recover my serp positions?

    In your mind
    Build some good, quality and relevant links and if possible get some High PR links.
    They will act as a SERP booster.

    Why did you get the penalty? Because of your content or because of your link profile?

    If it is because of your content, then you need lots of unique content added to your site. Combine that with relevant high quality links and you should start your road to recovery..

    If it was your link profile, it depends, was it due to bad anchor text ratios or spammy links? If it is anchor text ratios, then you need to work on building that out..

    There really isn't a simple answer to your question :)

    This is not too bad. 60-th place is good (you can easily get your site back). My website get -1000 places after penguin (100% original text and no spam of course). Thanx Mr. G !!!!
    Anchor text ratio is that thing....

    did ever consider checking your on-page? maybe the reason why your site is in that position is because its not on-page optimized.

    Remove all the crappy links and then start making new links but wait for few weeks. Then create some contents and do new back links. that's enough.

    Quit throwing links at the homepage. Create a new internal page and build links to it. Since it has no -50 penalty, you should be able to easily surpass that rank and move on up the ladder.

    After removing all crappy links you just give reconsideration request to Google.

    Hi,

    The first thing I recommend you do is a full analysis of your site starting with the backlinks-



    Once you have done that you will be in a much better position to move forward wisely.

    You need to build more backlinks to dilute the anchor text. Go to your webmaster tools, download the list of the keywords google determine while crawling your sites and build more backlinks with those keywords as the anchor texts. Also, use generic anchor texts like click here, visit this, yoursitename.com, etc.

    Also, prepare to see this penalty last for 3 months. I know few of my friends who have received this penalty early february and some of them have recovered to their original rankings after taking these steps of diluting the anchor texts and uploading more quality articles to their sites.

    anchor text variation. Mix up your main keyword with multiple variations and throw in some 'click here' and 'check out this site' for a natural profile

    remove the bad links, and build some quality ones.

    The bad ones are: profiles, comments, bookmarks....etc

    The good ones are: the rest :)
