I got battered by Penguin in 2012.
6 websites of mine got wiped out by Penguin. Tried like crazy to recover these sites. Didn't succeed. Gave up...until now.
Trying to make an SEO comeback.
Built a brand new site, brand new domain registered in October.
Got some content on board now, then the new Penguin 3.0 was rolled out coincidentally. New site doesn't look affected although I don't really have any rankings yet to speak about.
I have learnt my lessons to tread carefully with Google. I'm trying to be very careful NOT to offend Big G...again.
Reading about those affected by the new Penguin updates, it seems as though low quality backlinks are a problem...
Which begs the question...What is a low quality backlink in the eyes of the new Penguin update?
My research seems to indicate the following are considered low quality backlinks:
Forum profile links
Web directory submissions
RSS feed directory submissions
So what kind of backlinks are considered good these days?
I understand PBNs are good but of course they carry risks too and for a brand new site, not so sure.
Not sure what kind of backlinks to get now for my new site. At the moment I have none other than the facebook page and twitter account linked to the site.
Need advice as to the "safe backlinks that work these days" in the eyes of Big G vis-a-vis latest update.
