    Penguin is a fight against all existing forms of webspam including link spamming/ trading, aggressive overuse of exact match anchor text, submitting to low quality article/ blog directories etc.

    So make sure:
    - You have variation in your anchor text
    - You are not buying/ exchanging links
    - Your website is compelling enough to pull natural backlinks
    - You have no over-optimized on-page element

    Other than that:

    - Stick to white hat, legitimate SEO work
    - Stop any other kind of webspam you were indulged in

    Interesting thread - I have three new sites on the go and I am mainly doing things the whitehat way now (for fear of getting slapped).

    Here is my day to day actions:

    I set up Google news email alerts for my niche. As soon as the alerts come in, I head over to the sites listed and if I can I leave a decent comment. For the website anchor text I use a mix of my name or keywords I am targeting, or a naked URL. I then make a note of each anchor text to make sure that no keyword has a density over %50

    I create web 2.0's, but instead of building them using automated tools with spun content I am actually putting in a bit of effort to make small sites. I don't create single page web 2.0's. Instead I build each one into a micro site by creating a few posts with news quotes on the niche with a little intro and summary text around the quote. I also post up videos and so forth. When they get to four five pages I leave them. So not a mammoth amount of effort, maybe 2-3 hours each.

    I do the same for wiki's to as I do with the web 2.0's.

    Next is social stuff...
    Previously I would do hundreds of bookmarks each time with sick submitter or fiverr. Now instead I have a facebook page that I create for each site. I also have bookmark buttons in my browser for stumbleupon, pinterest and delicious which I use for every post. I get a few fakes on the facebook page and then slowly you start to see others like and subscribe (one way of helping this is find pages in a similar niche and start posting to there wall).

    I then set up the posts in socialadr. Socialadr is good as its real users who submit your site to decent bookmarking sites (like delicous).

    Finally, if I can, I create a subreddit for the niche. You can then post your posts in there, but I mix them up with posts from other sources too. Being that you created the subreddit, you also have moderator rights, so you can place a contextual link into the sidebar.

    It's taking longer then before to work this way, but my hope is that out of these I might end up with an authority site or two which could become something that banks a bit of money.

    Don't get me wrong, I am no do goody whitehat SEO type. I am a lazy git who would prefer to just automate my SEO efforts, but I am just too nervous to do that. I have two good sites which are blasted out beyond 1000+ through automated efforts, so instead I am just going to keep slowly building each day until we are sure of what works.

    How about buying .edu or .gov backlinks for my site? I heard from some SEO Gurus that one .edu or .gov backlink is equal to 1000 normal backlinks.
    Should I still be buying those type of backlinks or not?

    Diverysify + mimick manual linkbuilding (drip feed, schedule, velocity + anchor diversity).

    Get High PR and Low PR, do-follow and no-follow.

    All the best!

    Anchor Diversity
    Target sites that are not spammed
    Do not over optimize your on-site SEO
    Unique content (as before)
    Make it look natural, from many different sites, a lot of anchor / backlink diversity.
    And there is a lot more, just pulled up a few facts that people don't follow


    What would look natural in YOUR eyes if you were Google? That is the real question

    Make sure to rank for at least 5 keywords. All my sites that had several words ranked were fine. My sites where I just went after one or two words got pulled out of the top 1000 and they were on page one or two before.

    1. Choose a keyword. It should have some searches and shouldn't have high competition. For me I don't use anything exept SERP, I just type the keyword in G and see if there are lots of index pages or pr9+ internal pages (e.g. wiki), if there isn't any (or there is 1-2) you'll have no problem ranking in top3. I'd suggest you pharmacy niche, select a pill with a medium competition and try to rank for buy <pill>, EMD could be a problem though.
    2. Buy an EMD com/net.
    3. Set up a 1-page website on that domain. It should have some good, unique & made-for-human content and easy and clean design.
    4. Put pr7+ links to your domain. It could be the problem, so if you can't afford that, this instruction is useless. I use 100-200 keywords as anchors, all closed to the main one.
    5. Prepare for shocking income.

    Whoever says that is dead- don't believe, they are fools or want to point you to the wrong direction. And don't listen to those who suggest you creating a big site, adding content regularly blah blah blah... it is all crap, your site is fucked up one day and income is fucked up the same day, while you can make 5+ 1-page sites/day.
    The index page of the EMD+1-3k of unique content+high PR links are the key to top1, no metter pangwin or panda or whatever are applied

    What's the decent software for checking a site keyword to the top 1,000? Seems like they all just check to top 100.
