Another Google Penguin Recovery Strategy

I know this topic has been beaten to death but I would appreciate your input. I have a site that has lost rankings that has lost rankings due to the evil penguin. The penalties are keyword specific and page specific. From what I understand, purchasing a new domain and setting up a 301 from the penalized domain is not going to permanently fix the penalty because the penalty will or can eventually can follow the 301 to the new site. I have no interest in trying to have backlinks removed from the penalized domain or asking Google for reconsideration.

So, this is what I am thinking to send penguin on its merry way.

1. Purchase a brand new URL with no history
2. Purchase an aged domain with Page Rank.
3. Move the content from the old penalized domain to the new domain.
4. Redirect the aged domain to the new URL to gain authority/PR
5. Create a Squidoo lense (or other web 2.0 site) with unique content with low OBL and IBL links
6. Redirect the old penalized domain to the new Squidoo page.
7. Link squidoo page to new URL to get some link juice/authority. One link to home page and 1 to an internal page.

What's your thoughts?

        Its called a 301 redirect and, from what I've read, works 50/50 to cure penguin. It isn't blackhat--kinna light grey hat.

        Your penguin penalty can come back fyi . Some people reported that the penalty came to the new site within a few weeks. Some reported that they faired just fine.

        another method you can do is blast large amounts of generic (click here), phrase, and URL backlinks to the site to increase the keyword diversity.

          THe 301 is not going to the new site directly so what would be penalized?

            Oh whoops. Re-read this.

            I don't think the penalty will follow since Squidoo is quite an authority domain.

            However, I don't think it'll pass that much juice on to your fresh domain.

            If I were you, I'll just try it. It is not like you are gonna rank WORSE anyways.

    Do you think that Squidoo lense shall be really having that much link juice to be passed to new domain name which can make new domain name ranking as it was ranking pre-penguin penalty ? Sorry but technically, I doubt on it...

      There is more at work than the Squidoo lense as their is the aged domain that is being redirected. I m not expecting pre pre-penguin rankings. What I am hoping for is:

      1. Instant site authority and page rank
      2. Avoiding the sandbox for a new site
      3. Google's trust for the new domain
      4. Some rankings

      All of this sounds better than simply starting a new domain by itself that is not trusted by Google.

    Yes, I have also read many stories about 301 redirects cure but if your site is getting traffic from other search engines, it will be difficult for you to adopt this solution.

    You have mentioned on redirect the url which is highly prohibited for search engine optimization. I don't know how actually work it. But I have recover sites from penguin update by removing poor backlinks and poor content of the site and build a lot of natural High PR quality backlink for those site. Google always reconsider your site after penguin update.

    You are wasting your time.

    You CAN recover from Penguin. Unless your site that was killed by Penguin was brand-new, then you should do what you can to recover from it.

    Most people are getting fed incorrect information, and throwing in the towel WAY to early. Again, you CAN recover from Penguin.

    I've helped many people (via consulting/services/advice) recover from Penguin. The key is to actually make the necessary changes. It's funny how many people are making the mistake of throwing away domains, starting over, and making the SAME mistakes again but on a brand-new "worthless" domain.

    Feel free to PM me your domain and I'll provide some pointers on what you can do to fix it...
