    I'm going to make this short and sweet. When the ugly penguin hit I lost 3 sites, gone completely off the SERPS. I pretty much wrote these sites off and never touched them. While they were lost, I didn't add a single backlink or as much as an article to the sites. Well, I got to thinking about KW density and decided to manually edit each site in full reducing the KW density down to about 1% or so.

    I did nothing else at all whatsoever and all three sites not only regained their rank, they improved a couple slots. All three sites regained rank within a 3 week period.

    Just something to think about. Happy BH-ing :wtf:

    Hey,

    Would you be a little more specific about how large the website was? For example, my website has aroud 300~ pages, does that mean that I would have to reduce the keyword density on all pages?

    I have done the same to one of my site but I'm still waiting for it to get re-crawled, every time I check the cache the site shows the old text etc, I pinged it but it seems to be taking a lot longer!!

    When did you loose your rankings ? What is the exact date ?

    My real question is was it Penguin or Panda

    from what i can observe, panda and penguin target specific pages on your site, so if there are specific pages that are affected, then i would start with those pages first...
