    Hey guys,

    I am new to this site and I have been browsing this site for a while learning a lot not only about SEO but many other things, with that said I would like to ask a few of you to provide me with some advise, tips or suggestions when it comes to recovering from the latest penguin update since I know many of you are experts in the field.

    I was doing pretty good with a few sites before the latest google hit, in summary a few sites improve in ranking and others were hammered hard. Two of those sites had pretty good amount of daily visitors and had #1 #2 spots on google, now they got hit pretty hard and I have no idea even how to get them back on top. They are both wordpress sites

    I did a few things last week and it helped a little, removed the smart link plugin and that seem to help seems I went from being 200+ to about 110 spot on google but that's it. The problem is that for those 2 sites I used about 10% blog and forum backlinks, 20% blog commenting and 70% article linking using the Unique Article Wizard targeting my money keyword plus some other keywords from different pages on the sites.

    Since the penguin update I stopped using UAW and basically did not do anything else to see if they would recover on their own, so far not much has happened, I am basically looking for a recovery strategy since I don't want to give up on those sites.

    My plan was to test crorkservices on fiverr for the bookmarking and related services to see if it improved, any ideas or strategies to recover will be appreciated and sorry for the long post just wanted you guys to know exactly what happened.

    Thanks in advance
