Like most people here, all my sites took a nose-dive after the penguin update, so now I have to rework the way I have been doing SEO - namely not blasting my money site with excessive anchor texts using software like AMR, BMD and being careful with directory submissions, comment posting, blah blah blah. What's crazy is that 25 of the new domains I purchased before penguin are now ranking on page 1, some even on position 3, even though they have absolutely NO CONTENT on them. Yep, just a blank and empty wordpress site. So EMDs are obviously in - hooray! However, another 25 (I bought a total of 50) are nowhere to be found, meaning the algorithm only hits certain niches. Anyway, these are all micro-sites with long tail keywords, roughly getting 1000-4000 visits globally. Now, while I build these suckers up, I also want to build one, high-authority site, which leads me to my question: Do you think it's safe to use Onlywire on the new posts of the authority site I want to build? I obviously won't do it for the micro-niche sites since they are already ranking, but what about on a new site using an 11-year old domain with quality, hand-written content, and smart on-page SEO using low keyword density articles, many LSI keywords, safe h1 titles. blah blah blah I bought a monthly subscription for Onlywire last month (pre-penguin) and since they don't give refunds, I may as well use it for something. But is it too dangerous to use post-penguin, as it may trigger too many backlinks being built at once - what do you think? Their support team must be based on some far-away island, because they wrote me the following response: "I am sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. We do not have information on what effects Google page rankings." effects?
