    OK, do any guys/gals there have any concrete experience in recovering inner pages from a google penalty?

    The scenario is this, applies to three of my sites the same, one was hit in December, so I think this is a general penalty (maybe a -100 penalty) than just Penguin, however, the other two sites got hit at the time of penguin 1.0

    My sites...I was blasting them only with Greg's Link Pushing (great service) and not using any diverse anchors (so like {keyword1|keyword1variation} and that was about as diverse as it got lol....as it was working really well. The terms I was pushing were ranking 1, or 2 positions. Then the first site got hit in December and the other two sites got hit with Penguin - just those pages that I was targetting (all internal pages) have dropped out of the top 100 positions.

    The overall site remains absolutely fine generally for other well ranked pages that had little backlinking, the on site is not overly optimised, and the frequency and content is daily and unique, high quality, lots of social signals, no problem for the rest of the site and new pages, however, those critical product pages (e commerce sites) that I was ranking in the top positions for seem to have like a 'filter' on the actual keyword I was chasing.

    Is there anyway to get around this page specific/keyword specific penalty - or is it time to make a new page. And if that is the case, does the filter apply to just that page, or the is that keyword 'filtered' for the entire site?

    I read a ton of posts on Penguin, which I'm ranking perfectly well with new sites and other sites, just these three sites where I had gotten lazy. I read a great post (can't remember who it was on here) that was very in depth on removing penalties, however the process was long winded and HUGE...so I wondered if it was simply page (URL) specific, I could create a new product page with the same product, but unique content, and just diversify and create a better backlink profile simple enough...whereas if the filter is site wide, I assume this is also a no go approach...

    Any thoughts on that?

    More research confirms me certainly page specific, however, maybe not a site wide filter for the targeted anchor which is promising.
