    Hi, I don't know if anyone can answer or help me on this question. I am working on a client site, that was hit by penguin. The site has:
    -Over optimized Anchor text
    -Sidebar links with Brand
    -Deindexed sites
    I have been able to decrease the overoptimized anchor text down to a minimal, now the major anchor text are Brand anchor texts. I have been able to remove half of the sidebar and footer links, that were pointing thousands of links to the home page. i have not been ale to contact the deindexed sites, and malware affected sites to ask to remove the links.
    This was finished about two/three weeks ago.
    I have started also rebuilding links, to water down the links, keeping a ratio of 20% money KW 30% brand 30% naked url and 20% other.
    At the moment nothing has happened, still no recovery. This is the third site I deal with an algo penalty, but on this occasion the site still does not come back up. In my past experience, sites have come back after about two weeks. I have to also admit that I have removed a lot of links.

    My question is, has anybody tested a 302 redirect from w-w-w. example. com to h**p:// example .com (-w-w-w) and with the robot text blocking the w-w-w. example. com. I stongly beleive this should work, as I will cut off all the link juice as 58% of links are to my home page and the majority of these links/badlinks/overoptimized links are to my home page. If I do the 302 redirect, cutting off all links. will this fix penguin, or at least buy me time to build new links to wash down the old links?

    can anybody give their point of view or experience on w-w-w. ---> 302 --->block w-w-w. in robot.txt -----> h**p://

    thank you

    I also have some sites penalized by penguin and I am trying the same strategies - good to hear that at least SOME of your sites have managed to make a comeback using this type of strategy. I was wondering whether a 302 redirect would work. Does anyone have any experience on this???
