What would YOU do with three PR 5 "Penguinized" sites?!

    As the title says, i have three pr 5 penguinized sites that are good for nothing to me at the minute.. i've redirected two of them to the "third" penguinized emd domian in an effort to "dilute" the huge amount of exact anchor text links on that domain.. That actually worked pretty well, and brought my emd domain from nowhere to 11th / 12 th on go0o0o0o0gle..

    But obviously that is'nt good enough ( all three sites were num 1 post penguin 1.0).. so i tested, and tested again.. the next step was to redirect all sites to ane emd [web 2.0] (webs.com).. again, some results.. but again, same results.. 11/ 12th in serps...

    I don't wanna let these sites go, since they are three pr 5 sites after all and have to have some value, but i can't seem to find a way to get any use out of these domans at the min, and these are affected since penguin 1.0 and i am now approaching my second year of renewing the domains where i still haven't found a use for them.. so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..

    I was thinking, maybe i could turn these sites into massive "guest posting" sites for BHW members in exchange for say a backlink from your site, but to be honest i have way too many footprints showing my other sites that i obviouslly don't wanna be exposed), so IMO that's outta the question for now, but i honestly don't know what to do do with these domains..

    The only last thing i haven't done is redirected them to a youtube url that's been boosted with high retention views, subs and likes.. i've had huge success in this niche already with massive amounts of exact match links to youtube videos so i know that works, so since these domains have huge exact match anchor text links, and if redirected to a youtube video url with the correct elements added i'm guessing it might work, and could be a god send that if my video gets deleted it can be replaced just as easily with another with just some subs and likes and redirect my 3 sites to the new video and get it ranked asap as soon as the old video gets deleted (already happened twice), but what to do if this doesn't work?

    But the main prob is, what to do with three pr 5 domains?!

    P.s, it's 5 in the morning where i am now, and i've had a few drinks, so hopefully this makes sense and spells well, but i'm gonna head to bed now, but inerested to here your opinions.. hopefully :)

    P.s.s, in no way was this meant to sound like oh ye look at me, i have three pr 5 domains that are going to spare.. i'm sure there are a lot of you out there that would p**s on three pr 5 sites, i just wanted to say that i don't wanna let these domains to go to "drop" since there are too many footrpints related to them that are leading to my other sites that i don't want exposed.

    Thanks :)

    TBH i saw a thread on here a few days ago about flipping high PR domains on flippa, and i think if i remember right it said fro $250 to $300 per domain, which is very appealing, but as i said there is WAY to many footprints pointing to the rest of my money sites so that's why i'm afraid to let them go to not jus flippa, but to anywhere.

    I was thinking, that if i was to to turn them into "guest posting" sites.. although they obviously wouldn't be niche related to any other member on here's sites, surely if i was to trade a contextual link on these sites, for a contextual link on other BHW member sites, that link on mine (and your site) would be worth a lot more than a link on a say article directory page etc..

    This ideas though would be a couple of months away, for a few reasons on my behalf, but do ypu think this would be a good idea in any way?!

    P.s. i've seen the threads on here about about blocking ahrefs, magestic seo etc from showing the backlinks to your site through robots.txt and .htaceess [obviously once you have have control of the site] but if your site has already been crawled by their bots, is there any way of hiding the source of your backlinks does anybody know?!

    P.s.s defo time for bed now.. 6 a.m, i'll check back here in the morning but :)

    What is the PA/DA of the website. Also hope you tried everything and I would also suggest redirecting it to YouTube video. But still as you have 3 same categorized domain it is better to put 1 in research "how to recover".

    I would say either use them for link juice for other sites (they are still PR5, even if they are penguinated), or try some aggressive testing...

    For example, if you have 5,000 exact match links, use some drip-fed fiverr blasts or BHW services to build 15,000 lower-quality generic anchor text links.

    This will either balance out your link profile and bring the sites back, or it will be too many low quality links and the hole will be deeper, but hey - seems like you've got nothing to lose...

    I reckon keep going with your YouTube videos, I think balancing or cleaning the link profiles might be too much work if you've already got a lot on your plate?

    If you don't want to give up on them, put them on the back burner for the next several months. Continue writing content on them, continue diluting their profile. In the long run, when Google deems your work "worthy", you will see your ranks return.
