    So I had a website with 30-40 pages (which were doing fairly well, I thought) BOOM comes penguin. BAM! There goes my site. No big deal.

    If I deindex the website from Google, will it affect my Local Listing? I'm actually doing really well on my local listing and it has quite a few reviews. I'd like to transfer the content on a new website

    Any help would be appreciated!

    What "local listing" are you referring to? You mean the Google 7pack?

    Regardless if you're getting some kind of traffic still then NO WAY should you deindex it. You can easily spin the content that's on the existing site and start a new one. Hell you can rank with the same content if your links are really good. Look, this game is like 95% about links. Better links solves almost ANY problem. Take that to heart and run with it. Stop worrying about little shit. Put sites up and get THE BEST LINKS YOU CAN.

    Yep, I was talking about the google 7 pack.

    I think you're right. It does bring traffic (though I will say it is on Google Ads as well), but I'll spin, rinse, and repeat. What I need to do is look into better links! I'll scour the BST's for decent services :)
