    Hey guy, I already posted couples of post here about my site got hit by the latest penguin,

    I have done major steps :-
    1- Auditing and disavowing links
    2- Constantly posting fresh contents daily
    3- Social media activity.


    Still no positive results nor any movement. Can anybody share his experience on how to deal with this? I will be really glad if anyone can get me out of this mess.

    Thanks in advance
    Regards

    Disavowing is a waste of time, to remove an algorithm penalty you need to remove the over optimized links.

    Find a link removal service and have them handle it for you.

    As TropicalSun says you need to remove bad links, not just disavow. Then you can disavow the smaller % of links that couldn't be removed.

    Usually with Penguin and manual actions it's the auditing that isn't good enough to get back in. You should not be looking to keep all the links that you would accept if link building to a clean site, the threshold is *much* stricter once you have a Pengiun/manual action problem.

    Also the criteria people use for auditing is often wrong. Most of the commercial audit services are bogus IMO, using the wrong metrics.

    It isn't surprising that most penguined sites don't come back.
