    They were all on the same host account?

    They all had social lockers?

    They all had the same general SEO?

    What do you guys think?

    No. What do you mean?

    Too me it looks like authority sites and news sites I've never heard of with irrelevant content that noone wants?

    FUKKK now were all going to be up for hours on BHW

    It turned out not to be social lockers for me. Atleast I don't think.

    It was my host. Im sure of it. It used to pop up on malwarebytes for some people but I didn't think anything of it. I guess I'll have to scrap ALL those sites. FKKK

    http://knownsrv.com is the host I just want to make this public information. If someone could suggest me a offshore host that was not hit. Please let me know.

    I was on several hosts, the only thing that stands out is all Godaddy all public domains.

    What pisses me off now is I had just started several sites recently. Yesterday I checked one to see if it was indexed, and it was, so I took its meta title, put it in quotes to see if it came up first, and it did. Now when I put its title in quotes, it does not come up, although it is still indexed, don't know whether to scrap it. What really pisses me off is it was the last decent EMD that was available.

    If you want to setup your VPS on your own, Digital Ocean has Offshore droplets (their name for VPS) too.

    It was your backlinks, nothing to do with social lockers.

    Penguin is about targeting links, and my guess is your links were crap and not sustainable.

    Either remove the links and wait for the next refresh or throw the sites away.

    Same thing happened to me.

    I've still been trying to understand what a "GOOD" Link is in the eyes of Google.

    Good links are "naturally" achieved links. Not mass produced Fiverr churn and burn crap. That means not crap articles, no link directories, no mass produced social bookmarking or pligg crap.

    Cookie cutter stuff is what gets you penalized. Those mass produced pligg links don't help you.

    Irony of everyone jumping the ship and responding add to the scaremongering. Not to be a PITA, but could you tell me how to naturally acquire links? (sarcasm) Have you seen the top 10 serps for manual review niches? did you notice i highlighted acquire there..

    I will give you 10s of sites that were slapped for so called naturally acquired links using content marketing so not everyone is jumping onto fiverr and not everyones articles are crap.

    Do you see diversity being talked about? how many naturally acquired links have click here, read more and random anchors. would you create a genuine link for some site with those generic anchors? NO...

    Appreciate your answer to the OP but there are lots of presumptions there...

    I could give two shits about acquiring links naturally, I buy links. Not crappy links as I mentioned in my post. The guy asked what Google considers as good links, and according to Google links that you acquire naturally are good links. If I focused on what Google thought of as good links I'd be broke.

    But the thing is that I don't spend a dime on Fiverr, those links are crap. No way around it. Go blow your wad on some Fiverr gigs if that is what you are into.

    I on the other hand will continue to rank sites by buying links.
