Just needed to understand on the backlinking strategy you guys are following post penguin... would love to hear your thoughts.

I was thinking a combination of web 2.0, wiki sites and article directories. Another good method is Guest Posting... end them up with social bookmarking and pinging them using services like pingfarm.com..

What are your views on blog commenting and forum profiles post penguin

    You should also focus on building social media platforms as you will get backlinks from those sites as well + having a social media presence is a instant traffic source of getting visitors on your website. Use platforms like facebook or twitter, these both can work for you depending on the niche you are working on.

    Focus More on Content first. Unique Content really pays off. You can Build Social Media audience and do blog commenting. Make sure it looks natural and not automated.

    you need to try and keep thinhs natural..... kinder like not thinking about it would probably be better....

    lots of people on hsre use to say only bbuild links from dofollow sites but i disagreed ad this to me looked unnatural.

    you need to really mix things up and try to get a long list of varying anchor text andbthen try anf keep people on your site for longer

    Apart from the methods you mentioned, you can also try to use social networking like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. Doing blog commenting video is also ok.

    What I do is post articles in article directories with links to my money site. Then I do blog commenting that links to my live articles and bookmark live articles with social bookmarking sites. Works great for me. I also do social media marketing.

    the same seo methods before the penguin update. the only change is make sure you don't over optimize (esp your onpage seo and backlinks dont come from spammy irrelevant low quality sites) and target very low competitive keywords.

      I am getting an incredible result using contextual links using varying anchor tags and IP diversity. I am getting much better result using fewer links this way compared to thousands of profile and forum links.

        Where are you getting your contextual links from? Web 2.0 blogs i.e. worpdress, tumblr, etc. Wiki sites? Article directories?

    Link diversity is very important nowdays.

    These are the various tye of links you should make:
    Links from directories
    edu links
    wiki links
    press relaeses
    Social Bookmark links
    web 2.0
    Article Submission


    Just keep on rotating them evenly. Try to make the process look as natural as possible.

    Blog commenting is also working after penguin. But you need to be relevant and post comment in low obl blog. Profile link looks like spammy and penguin don't like spam so you should avoid profile links.

      I have a real case of after-Penguin recovery for a non-branded website.
      The trick is in the backlink profile. You have to make it look natural for Google.
      Our strategy was to employ backlinks for inner pages and for the home page after the website started to recover, using these anchor texts:
      - main keywords for the URLs
      - semantic keywords (LSI)
      - brand keywords
      - brand keywords + main keywords
      - URL
      - natural anchor texts: "read full article", "vist website", "source" etc.

      It took us more than one month to fully recover from the penalty. We added links only for inner pages and we started adding backlinks for the homepage (slowly) after the first month (when the website started to recover).
      You need to be smart and to have some patience!

        What sort of backlinks did you build and what volume of them. I'd like to recover a site that had 15 pages of unique content. So what you are suggesting is start building backlinks to the 14 internal urls first with a mix of that page keyword, LSI, brand kws, etc. and then wait to see if you get any movement before building more backlinks to the homepage?

        I think my issue all this time has been just building majority of backlinks to the homepage and using the same keyword as anchor text for like 70-80% of the time. Maybe that is why my sites took the hit like they did.

          I mostly used my .edu and .gov backlinks and social bookmarks. The volume depends on how your backlink profile is looking. You have to make it look natural!
          Just build backlinks for your inner pages until you start seeing some movement. Do it slowly and remember that link velocity is a very important ranking factor.

          You are dead right here. The over usage of main term keyword phrase as anchor text and pointing more than 50% - 60% of your backlinks towards the homepage are clear signals for Google that you are trying to manipulate the search results.

            Hey there, this is probably the 4-5th time I've seen someone quote an exact number of the mix of backlink types and I'm wondering where the source of this number is coming from. It's not anything official from Google (obviously, they don't get specific like this), so I'm trying to find the right person to give credit to for an article I'm pulling together on the subject.

            Someone on Quora, who works for SEO.com, claims that one version of it (with somewhat similar numbers) came from an internal study at that company, but I'm wondering if anybody else is claiming it as well.

            Thanks!

        This post is right on the money. Its all about anchor text ratios and diversification..

    Nowadays, in a post-Penguin world the most important SEO factors are diversity and link velocity. Also, you have to go for quality and stay away from high volume.

    High quality manual social bookmarks will help you get some of the rankings.

    As always, high quality links are the best kinda links to get.

    Be sure though that you have a nice diversity of anchor texts in the incoming links as well. More often than not people get caught up in going after one, or two anchor texts and completely overlook the fact that it doesn't appear natural. Don't get stuck getting a penalty for something so basic. Strategically build your links.

    Hey friend Penguin give more important to natural and high quality back links so if you want to get high quality back from web 2.0 website then you should have unique and high quality content, that entice to every visitor read up to down and covering with valuable information so everybody well familiar about work of penguin, sometime ago thousands of website lost their ranking and traffic due to their unnatural links...

      The more natural the diversity the better (including some nofollow).
      Emulate a quality site, with quality links, and you can only move up.
