    A website that was number 1 for two keywords (high search traffic), got a penalty for over linking i believe, comes out back on top within the last few hours.

    This hasnt just happend to me, its happened to quite a few people.. check all your old websites that have been hit!

    Have google realised how fucking stupid it was to punish people with dodgy backlinks? Who knows?

    There's a theory if you keep building links, quality ones, that google will eventually bring them back, and higher than before.

    Very Funny..


    Im in a skype group (quite a large skype group) and a few people have had the websites come back.

    I had two website that were penalized, 1 came back the other didnt, when they got penalized I completely stopped building links.

    What I Did do to the one website..

    Corrected my wordpress url structure to just (%postname%)

    And I added a widget for "recent posts"

    I only did this on the website that came back.. maybe this had something to do with it?

    I have been watching my sites every couple of hours. For some stupid reason I go to the first/second page in the mornings and at night they drop to low second/third page... DOn't know the 10-20 dance all during the day...

    My site has gone from #1 where it has been for 3 years, down to #9 or sometimes on the second page.

    I have checked my Keyword tracking it the keywords that have been hit are the ones I was targeting in BMR

    I am now building naked anchors and full urls to my site. Hope I can get out of this penalty asap, its costing my lots
