Hello guys, I need some help. I run a small network of 40 adult webcam sites grouped into two groups of 20. The network had about 30% decrease in traffic after the penguin update. Here are a few things about it, I'm trying to understand which element could most likely trigger a penalty. 1. I use wordpress multisite for my network; 2. Every site from each group of 20 is interlinked and all are: - relevant to each other; - handling different small niches (one handles mature webcams, other BDSM webcams - they are all different but similar, being in the webcam niche); - I have interlinked them with both SEO and user experience in mind. Lets say someone likes the mature niche but also like the BDSM one as well; 3. On each site I have 20 affiliate links which are hidden through a jquery script. I have just a normal text with: "My Live Cam" which is populated with a link after the page is loaded. 4. My back-links vary in anchor text, but they are 99% ANCHOR BASED (no direct urls, no "click here"). In adult you don't see natural links appearing, people posting on their twitter account about what porn site they visited. So you have to trade links and most sites only accept anchor text. 5. I have little social media; I really need to buy a submitter but I am also thinking of doing some web 2.0 manually because there are just a handful of sites accepting adult. I know these are RED FLAG mistakes but in adult most of the sites do them. I had very good rankings because compared to other adult webmasters I tried to vary anchor text, do a little social media, etc. Looking at google Penguing update, he just replaced my sites with ones that are similar or worse. I don't get it! To finish with the question: Any idea what could trigger it most? or all? Where should I start?
