    Hey guys one of my old sites had the Google penalty a few months ago so i left it.

    Last month i decided to start over with the exact same niche but using a different domain name and content for on-site.

    My old site had around 20 really high quality web 2.0 posts (but where blasted with a ton of scrapebox links)

    My question is if i change the anchor links and text to my new site, would that be risky? or has anybody ever tried it before?

    Cheers as always

    I did it a few months ago and I had no problem. Check the web 2.0s rankings and put your new link only to the ones that rank high.

    Wasn't the site actually penalized because of these links?

    I don't know what links caused the site to be penalized but if the web 2.0s are ranking high in Google it means they are not penalized so they won't transfer any penalty.

    The website was not penalized because of THOSE links. It was penalized because of too many similar links with not very different anchir text ( most probably)

    so to answer, if those pages are not over-spammed, you can use them with no problems.
