Default Panda/Penguin Recovery Case Study using ArticleWyz

On June 28 the traffic to one of my Mortgage Lead Generation site plummeted.
The Penguin had come to visit.

All keywords had gone from page 1 to page 5,6 or 7.

After Panicking for a few days , I Stared to research what people had been doing to fix the problem and came up with a simple plan.

Recovery Steps that work for me.

Removed all SEO Plugins
Yoast SEO Plugin
Easy WP SEO
Image SEO Plugin
Yet Another Related Post Plugin
Cross Linker

Stared new link campaign with very varied anchor text diversity.
Build a Web2.0 Blog Network with ArticleWyz and started aggressive link building campaign.

See my Video Here Penguin Recovery Using ArticleWyz

Aug 3 - Case Study Keyword Position #13

Aug 8 - case Study Keyword now at #11,12 and 13.

I've been thinking about using the Yoast SEO plugin for a new site. What does everybody else think about using it/not using?

Hi Simon,
I watched your video, great research and sounds like a good strategy. Three of my money sites have been hit by the penguin update (down from page 1 to pages 11, 30 and 51). I plan to implement your strategy as I need to diversify my backlinks and anchor text and build more backlinks. Thanks again.

I agree with your anchor text strategy for the most part but would be even more conservative with exact match anchor and keep to about 5% just to "future proof" a little.

Yeah 5% might be a good strategy.

The thing that sucks now is that you need way more links to rank.
As you need lots of phrase,generic and naked links.

Yeah I had moved to the Yoast Plugin for several sights but now have reverted to no plugin or All in One SEO.

I had heard from a SEO guru that he believed the Yoast Plugin might being targeted.

He looks after 1000's of SEO clients and has more data to pull from.

Did you remove any of your site wide lead gen forms (if you had them)? One of the things that I noticed was that above the fold, site wide lead gen forms got crushed by penguin.

SEO Yoast is very buggy..If you strip category URL, it often puts it back on its own, throwing everything out of whack.

Also it puts some rel="canonical" links in when you don't want them.

Im using SEO Ultimate now and my pages are cleaner.

I must say my site got hit with Yoast, but have no idea if this is coincidence.

That is an Interesting observation, my site does have a lead capture optin that is partially above the fold.

How about SEO pressor? Would you recommend removing this plugin? I did remove it from one site after the April 24th Penguin update, but it never made any positive difference.

After further analysis of my site I don't think it was The Yoast Plugin.

I had lots of Interlinking on my site, I think some of my pages we given a negative score and because I had that link spread around my site, it passed that negative rep to many other pages. (This is a Theory that seems to be correct but who really knows)

Sorry men, this is absolutely bullshit.
Penguin is not always working day after day. Penguin updated once in a few month.
Penguin was launched only 3 times: April 2012, May 2012 and now 06 October 2012.
You can't hit by Penguin on other days and you can't recovery on other days - it can be only when Penguin run again. Read Cutts blog.
So, it was not a Penguin. Maybe Panda, Panda launched often.
