    Does a blog still work for traffic now that Penguin is here? How often should I post so that I'm not penalized.

    I'm planning on writing good content and posting it once a week. Is that ok? Is it ok to post a link to the product in each post?

    I haven't done any promotion in years, working mostly as a writer, but I know that Panda and Penguin have changed the Google game.

    Thanks,

    Blogs still work great for traffic, it's poorly made blog networks that's the issue.

    Thanks, I'm working on good content, doing actual research with IRL people too. I have another question, should I include the link to the website of the product in each post or is that too much?

    Sorry if I'm being real noob.

    Keep your blog with good content. If you can, do it twice a week. No problem with the product link, there.
    Make sure you use related keywords on the content. That's mandatory, nowadays.

    Blogs are still ranking well. You can have your blog be your long-term project while you have random seo'ed sites to test different things on.
