    Ok guys, here's what I'm going to try and do.

    Without using anything that costs more than $5, I'm going to try and rank a new EMD site.

    If it get's to #1 for the main keyword in Google, I'll give $100 to a random person who's commented in this thread.

    Also, to make sure that I stay committed to posting results, I guarantee that I will post at least 1 update a week in this thread for the next 2 months or I'll give $100 to a random person who's commented in this thread.

    So, not only should we all learn a bit more about Penguin, primarily how well social signals actually work, but you've got the chance to win $100.

    Here's the first screenshot of rankings. The sites been up for about 2 weeks but has just sat there.

    The first thing I'm going to do is add a Unique 600+ word article which is related to both of the two keywords I am targeting.

    How is the competition for the keyword? How many local monthly searches?

    (oh, and keep me out of the runnings for the $100 bucks, I'm sure lots of people here on this board need it more than me)

    I would also like to say that it is A LOT easier to rank a brand new website, vs ranking one that has been hit by Penguin.

    Once it's been hit, it's challenging to get your website to recover.

    On a side note, it would also be interesting to see how penguin reacts to a new website and link building. It is hard to pin point EXACTLY what penguin targets with a preexisting website. Too many variables come into play. A brand new website eliminates any outside variables.
