    I have a website abc.com that has been penalized from Penguin 3.0

    Is it safe to use the exact same content from abc.com on a new domain xyz.com? ( Of course after deindexing abc.com )

    Secondly, there were some additional links added to abc.com after it being penalized. Is it safe to edit those links and point them to xyz.com? ( they were not the reason why the site got penalized )

    All replies will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Yes, you can take the content but ensure it doesn't appear on the penalized site again.

    You can also redirect safe links if you can identify them..

    Of course you can do that, just wait till the original site is deindexed. If you can update (good links!) to the new URL you should be fine. Keep in mind Penguin hits websites that have shitty link profiles, if you plan on updating that link profile to your new domain you'll just pass along the penalty.

    Why not fix the problem and remove the shitty links?

    yes, a lot of people do that, many use old content from dead site with no problems, just wait till all the pages are gone from the index.

    also as wizdorf asked, did you try first solving the problem and submitting a reconsideration request, it might work and it would be easier than creating everything all over

    I would say yes to both of those questions.
    but as above, might be better trying to resolve the issue, although I suppose it depends how much time you have put into current site.
    if it's just an MNS type site it is probably easier and quicker to start again.

    I've done what wizdorf mentioned above when mine get hit by penguin too and I think it should work fine,
    I'm waiting for original sites to get deindexed.

    yes, you can but at first check the website content uniqueness .After that you can redirect safe links to your new domain .
