So i followed everything that the ebooks and profetionals have said about building a website and to always go for EMD's. I am one of many that got hit hard with penguin. I have 5 EMD MNS and all were ranked top 10 pre penguin. Post penguin, they are not even in the top 100. I dunno if they all are dancing or got de indexed. Correct me if im wrong but is this how you know if your website is indexed by google - by placing (site:www.mywebsite.com) onto the google search bar? So far i stopped all link building to be on the safe side.
