    Hi guys, I have a quick question:

    I have a site I made last year, about 6 months old and it has 5 articles on it. It was supposed to be a MNS, I was starting to get great rankings, but then the panda update came and moved it way back in the results. The keyword I was targeting has really great potential, 10000+ searches per month and under 1 mil results in google, $2+ CPC. The site is on page 63 for this kw. Should I try to revive it and get it to page 1 or should I buy another domain and try to rank that one instead?

    Cheers!
    Razvan

    Buy a new domain. Go for partial EMD. Stay away from over optimizing.

    Well before you decide to let it go spam the shit out of it with contextual links and tier2 spam links and see where it ranks. If still stuck then get a new domain place the old content(deindex your old site) and start over.

    Make a new site. Get an old domain and 301 it to your new one for some authority. No point wasting resources and time trying to revive a penalized site unless you really want to.

    First off what was your anchor text ratio?

    DIVERSIFY your anchor text...if not, you can build as many sites as you want..they will rank..then tank

    ..and yes EMD (I've ranked sites with one sentence and a youtube video)

    I rely on high PR authority backlinks...along with social/wiki/and other SENUKE generated, article builder generated, content.

    The game never changes drastically...the core is always getting authority links to your sites with diverse anchor text.

    Another thing you can do buy a new domain and transfer all the same content to the new site you will get page 1 rank in less than a month. I have tried it many time and succeeds. PM for more details. I can bet on it..:cool:
