    So, now penguin has been unleashed what services here still actually work? Since botwiz and georgebg discontinued their service I'm stumped as to what service to go for.

    Anyone used any services here recently and had good results?

    Regards

    Yep. It is still too early to tell. But I am sure there will some very soon.

    I told people to watch out with their links -- quite different from just a month or so ago when I would have said blast to high heaven -- and beware of external link building services because you don't know WHAT kind or links or WHERE your links are being dropped or in WHAT CONTEXT your links are being placed.

    There is a WSO talking about conquering penguin but the truth is, at the moment, NOBODY knows. Anyone who says otherwise is bullshitting.

    I am investigating it as thoroughly and quickly as I can, but unfortunately this will take testing one variable, waiting; testing another variable, waiting, etc etc. to try and isolate any beneficial strategies of recovery.

    Beware of anyone selling you false hope at this early stage.

    Diversity is key, more so now than ever! There have been a ton of writeups on individual theories on what Penguin targets, but one resounding theory is backlink analysis.

    I think it's fair to say that we all agree on that. So what are they analyzing? Again, just what everyone has been talking about. Make your backlinks APPEAR natural. Natural backlink profiles are KEY to building a long-term SEO strategy. The problem is that most SEO's have been down right LAZY in their backlink building efforts for years. And, it worked fine until Penguin was rolled out.

    Diversify everything, from the type of links, the anchor texts used, the URLs you are backlinking, the velocity you are backlinking, etc.

    My recommendation is to find someone in your niche that's ranking well, that ISN'T doing SEO, and reverse engineer the factors I described above. Next, try and get your statistics similar. What percentage of anchor texts are optimized? What's the breakdown of quality of backlinks? etc.....

    Then, utilize services with this framework in mind.

    Look for services where you can use a ton of keywords and urls and the thing is, in the BST section most services are so narrowly focused on only a few keywords that they are not very helpful...

    We have hundreds of sites, NONE of them have been hit negatively, why? Cause I didn't buy junk links from crap networks for $1 each. All my methods still work.

    Thanks!

    I can confirm what superlinks is saying diversity is key. I was ranking was ranking top five for a 500 000 competition strong keyword and penguin killed me, i had very little links but the anchor text was mostly all the same, oh well we live and we learn...

    concentrate on building high quality 1st tier and social links (twitter shares/G +1/Facebook likes/..) as second tier
