    I got a penalty and I am going to go through the tedious process of starting a new one. Can I use the same:

    -hosting account
    -theme
    -pictures
    -how much of my content has to change? My homepage was converting really well and dont really want to change it that much!

    I want to change it least as possible but dont want to run into the chance of it being panalized for duplicate or being associated. Can I clone the website and just bascially change the words only?

    From what i've read, you could use the same content.. but change it up so it's 100% Copyscape.

    Well, you could use the same hosting but maybe ask for an IP change.

    Furthermore I would suggest changing the content. There is no yes or no answer in this setting. But be reasonable:

    If you are playing hide and seek, would you hide in the same spot you just got caught?

    That's just my view on it. You don't have to change your theme, since many people will be using your theme aswell.
    Maybe reupload your images ;)

    I don't work on penalized domains, when I get a penalized website, I request a new domain, new content, new design.... I don't copy any thing from the old one. I would just use the same logo if it was a brand name : ))

    So my site has been penalized. I'm doing everything new except this: a) Phone number since I can't change that. b) Address c) I have yelp and I'm asking them to update my profile with my new site. Would google link that to the old site? d) I also need to create a new Google Plus page. I'll creat a new Gmail and start from 0, but do you think that because I'll be using the same computer+same modem mac address, etc from witch I've accessed the old google profile that they will link that too?
    Do you think that will make G link the penalized site with the new site?. So, except the point I've mention, I'll have new domain, new hosting, new content, etc.
