    Hi ladies and gents,

    I have two very (or were) very successful ecommerce sites in my niche, and they were pretty much pulling all their traffic organically from Big G. I'd bought a few high PR links to main targeted KWs, built some pyramids through Nuke and mostly just hammered the shit like lazy using LinkPushing over and over, with a few manual EZines. We dominated most products in top spots for nearly 3 years, and just in the last month, I've received NO unnatural link penalty notifications but the sites are dropping by the day for any KWs we hit hard with LinkPushing. This is in NO WAY a negative of Greg's service which has been exceptional, it's my pure laziness on my part. I did no naked links, or generic click here links etc. Never bothered as there was a lot of natural growth and linking from real people since we're pretty big sites.

    What's the best strategy moving forward now. I'm lazy, my main business is tied up running the ecommerce and logistics, the SEO is just something I enjoy but don't have all the time of the day to manually write articles and blog and stuffs so hit me up with what your plan would be to recovery the bad hit KWs from Penguin where no penalty seems to be in place officially.

    start by de-optimizing your anchor text, by using the generic anchors like "click here" "visit site", etc...

    after that, who really knows...

    lets say you had previously created 10,000 links to your site, most likely you will need to create another 10,000 or more links with de-optimized anchors...

    i never thought i could hate a penguin so much...

    Yeah, this makes logical sense. Would you suggest sticking with linkpushing and just building de anchored links that way, or diversifying? If Im gonna diversify can you recommened any avenues or service providers?

    linkpushing is fine, but I am not sure how the linkpushing program would automatically generate an article for you if you are using generic anchors...you would have to ask greg about that as I would think there would be a way to do it...i know you can enter your own articles...

    One service that I have been using is found here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-seolutions-drips-new-bigger-blasts-more.html

    what i like about that service is that you can have unlimited urls/keywords...my site has over 1000 pages so i give those guys all my urls in spintax format and then i also give them a huge list of de-optimized anchors in spintax and then they go to town...you can place up to 3 links per wiki post, i have them only do one link per post...

    i would caution you to be careful with this service as it can provide a lot of links quickly and you need to have enough pages on your site to handle the volume of links...

    Yeah, so you're providing like a spreadsheet of every URL in your site and then throwing in a whole pot of naked and clean anchors like 'click here' blah blah blah. Is it all wiki sites only? How much are you paying for 1000 pages. My sites have maybe 15 000 each site, they're big ecommerce sites...

    those guys have different plans so look them over and pick the one that works best for you...the prices are listed on the page, just click on the link to view...

    i provide the urls in spintax format in a notepad file, for example {url1|url2|url3}...if you have 15,000 pages this will take you some time to put together all those urls in spintax format...
