    Background:
    2 of sites were hardly hit by series of penguin update.With each update the rankings went down.Each site had only 2 pages.

    Things what i did after the penguin
    • I tried adding lot of content to the site
    • Build contextual links
    • Buy Homepage links
    • PAD Submit

    But none of them worked, rankings were down as hell.

    So then i read about 301 redirect to new domain in the forum.But from the posts it seemed that penalty was passing down the new domain in 1-2 weeks.

    So what i did:
    • Bought a new domain and setup the content.
    • Created a web2.0 with 600 words content.And used 1 naked url and long tail keyword as anchor pointing to the new site.
    • Then redirected my old domain to the web2.0

    And then i did few bookmarks to the new site.Its been 3 weeks and both the site are in top 10(9 and 7 precisely).So i had 70% recovery in rankings.

    Criteria for selecting web2.0
    • It should be ********.
    • The page that is created on web2.0 should have low OBL and IBL.You want max juice to pass to your main site.
    • Go for web builder type of site rather then wordpress/hubpages/squidoo etc
    • And don't use the direct anchor otherwise the web2.0 would start ranking.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    I can't see the linking from new domain to old domain? Also the linking from web 2.0 property to your old domain so he can recover rankings?

    I'm afraid the 301 is going to be a temporary solution until the next Penguin iteration rolls out. Try balancing out your anchor text diversity. Search for more information about the proper balance.

    This may be a recovery from Panda .. You will have to wait till the next Penguin update to see if your technique really works.

    Yep, not to plug my own service, but high PR homepage links are one of the methods to getting out of a Penguin drop.

    Although there's still onsite variables that need to take place as well. I've helped quite a few clients (new and old) recover from Penguin by implementing a backlink strategy with changes to their onsite factors.

    Onsite factors are critically important, so if someone is serious about recovering they'll need to be ready to implement changes immediately.

    Might have to try this myself. May I ask if you are able to copy all the content from your old site to the new site or do you have to use all new content? The site I want to try this on has about 40-50 posts on the hit site it'd be a shame if I had to start over
