    Ladies and Gentlemen,
    I behold to you my ranking results.
    If you read my GSA thread. You will know that I was spamming away my youtube video with GSA.
    After penguin 2.0 I thought it died. I was WRONG!
    Today it hit 1st Page!
    Literally no effort. 100% spun content.
    BLACK HAT SEO FTW!

    Penguin 2.0 had no effect on my rankings, nor my client's rankings, whatsoever.

    I think the only sites that are getting killed are the 100% white hat sites. Googles changes are killing all those sites.

    From everything I have seen since the update tells me that greyhat/blackhat still wins the day.

    Both my white hat sites took a huge hit and lost 60% of their traffic. 3 of my black hat sites jumped in the rankings! Switching to strictly black hat from now on.

    I don't really think that it was a JOKE for all, rather for the people who were trying to use the legit SEO methods

    Google does not take into account that a competitor can spam your domain and you will loose your rankings. Disvow does not work.

    Been a mixed bag here for serps for me and my clients serps.

    Id say 80% UP a few spots here and ther and a handful of losers - - 150+ sites / terms

    Mostly losers in this algo change were folks with large link profiles - and a lot of exact match and close to exact match anchors.

    Really ? What's a legitimate link to your website ? who the fuck is google to be master arbiter of all links on the web and be judge, jury and executioner with little to no recourse for the small guys?

    how are you getting your links indexed?
    I spammed the crap out of a youtube vid just to see what would happen after 2.0 and ahrefs only shows 2 backlinks and
    the video isn't moving yet.

    ahrefs and gogles index have nothing in common. I could really give a flying shit what ahrefs crawler find. Ahrefs bot aint going to rank me for shit in GOOGLE.

    Links to your links is what gets google to crawl the pages and "index" them. If you do the job proper - you'll get google to "cache " the page your links reside on as well.

    One has to wonder....

    Why would googles ranking algo give much credence for a rank increase for a link on a page that google doesnt even find worthy to put in their index?

    There are some rumors that Penguin 2 was actually a roll back from Penguin 1...
