    It takes me more than 10 hours googling and read all the discussion on this forum, but i do not yet find the solution that we must take when the web is hit by the pinguin..
    some of the expert is only get drop by 10-30 rank, but my web is going from rank 20+ to nowhere

    my site is still got indexed well, have no message or alert at GWMT
    pinguin only hit my homepage, my product and article pages are still on that normal fluctuation of ranking. My homepage was gone even when i try to google my meta title.

    what should I or might be, what should we do for this?

    as far as I understand there is no cure. If you get dropped by 10-30 rank good for you if you get dropped much lower bad just deal with it ;) ! I think ranks will go back after few days on some pages but there is no fast fix/get my page back on first page of google medicine

    Do you think opening another thread about it is going to help?

    You can try not making another thread about it. Report back when you've done that.

    Start new site, it's tough to recover or I'd say impossible.

    My plan? deindexing hit sites, and moving content to a new domain. Not going to sit around waiting for a recovery that may never come. ;) Also, no 301 re directs etc.

    I'll repeat it again since I was able to recover my rankings with the last penguin update. My sites were first hit by penguin last year, lost nearly all rankings. My income dropped from 5 figures a month to less than a few hundred dollars a month. All overnight.

    I spent a long time researching what I could do like you are doing. The advice I was given was to:

    1. Give up and start over
    2. Disavow all links
    3. Remove all of the links

    The first one wasn't an option, because these sites did have rankings before hand and was bringing me 5 figures a month. A lot of link equity had been built and the sites were well known in their respective industries.

    Disavowing all links I knew was a dumb idea. My gut told me that Google was using the disavow tool to help refine Penguin. So sitting there and giving them the links that were hurting me wasn't gonna help anything.

    I decided to go with the third option of removing links. If my site dropped like a rock with penguin then it was clearly because of its links. If I removed those links why would my site continue to stay penalized?

    Long story short I removed as many links as I could over the last year. Actually I didn't but the service I hired did. We focused on the clearly bad links, you know the shitty web 2.0's, forum profile spam, blog comments, article directories. Some links were impossible to remove but we cleaned up nearly 70% of the crappy over optimized junk links over the course of a year.

    Friday night my rankings are back nearly across the board. Recovering from penguin is 100% possible. Most people providing advice haven't been through it, or easily throw in the towel. If your site is a churn and burn then I would agree with them and tell you to ditch the site. Otherwise it's worth taking the steps to recover it.

    Get checked for seabird STD's....

    During the last update one of my sites fell from 10 to 90.. and a week later it was back at 10. It got hit again with this update and is sitting at 50. I'm wondering if it will come back. I spammed the crap out of it.

    wizdorf gave some good advice.

    Three options:

    - Disavow and remove bad links then wait for the next refresh: The disadvantage of this is that there's no guarantee your site will recover.

    - Start over: You are going to lose all the backlinks you built since you started the site. You can reuse your content though.

    - Redirect to a new domain: The penalty will eventually pass through the redirect to the new domain.

    I think everyone who is freaking out should give it a few more days for the dust to settle. There is a good chance you have permanently lost your rankings but see where the dance takes you. Who knows you may get lucky.

    If you don't come back then start again. It's pretty devastating but this is what we have to put up with when we rely on Google for traffic. Don't bother using the disavow tool we all know it simply doesn't work. You may be able to salvage something with a 301 but I'm sure the penalty will eventually pass on.

    This update has really made me want to churn and burn as a primary strategy. Ironic seeing as how Google is trying to put quality sites first. Since my quality work isn't ranking it's spam time.

    When you do SEO next time, don't use spammy methods, this is simply self inflicted. Also don't use PBN's aka public blog networks, if a PBN is well marketed it means your neck is exposed... and 301's pass link juice so you can't simply rebuild anymore...
