    I am working right now so have not had time to look over the forums to see if it had been posted but i thought i would share this just incase it hadn't but Matt Cutts announced a new BIG Penguin update on Monday.
    http://www.seroundtable.com/smx-search-police-matt-cutts-duane-forrester-16480.html

    For anyone that likes to prepare there websites for updates and such we have been talking about what to do in preparation for the update.

    Stop using exact match anchor text now (only for big clients with a good back link profile)

    Do some backlink analysis for clients and any over use of of exact match anchor text try and get this changed.

    As for small/new sites try and have a very small amount of exact match in your links and let your content do the work itself.

    Hope this helps someone, again sorry if this has already been posted just thought it would add my 2cents.

    most of our clients dodge these updates but it takes a load of work trying to sort everything out that we are sure will be in the update. But mainly due to what they did to interflora and others it makes it kind of obvious what the update will include so fixing it just takes a bit of time but at least we will be safe. Besides some people somehow just managed to dodge these updates anyway even if they have the most obvious backlink profile lol no idea how.

    Interflora wasn't hit by Penguin. It had some weird redirects going on from its homepage. Check ahrefs.com you'll see what I mean.

    Varied anchor text isn't anything new. Same as not just linking to the homepage which Google trialled in discounting all homepage backlinks in January I believe.
