Hi SEO expert, I badly need help from you. Each time I build a website my website get penalized. I am really unable to find out the reason how I can recover my sites. Below are some things that I want to share with you regarding what I do to recover:

1. Onpage Factors: My website did not have any duplicate content, I did not use any hidden text or link. I did not use any cloaking. Keyword density is also not high.
2. Offpage Factors: Each time I read an article regarding google penguin recovery, everybody says bad links, but I even not built much links. There are few links that points to my website and I check each link there is no any bad link issue with my website.
3. All my 3 websites niche is online gaming. I hosted all 3 website in same hosting, so I thought this might be reason. But I have bought another hosting service and move one site to that hosting.

I want to say that there is no any over optimizing issue now with my websites. But I did not see any ranking improvement for any of my website. I am really frustrate thinking what to do. There is nothing to do from my side.

I really need one SEO expert who can guide me and inform me what lacking behind without my knowledge.
Thanks

    How long have you been building those sites and how long after you have built one do you realize that your site has been penalized?

    May be its not being to able rank that you think is a penalty. Just my thoughts!!

      This exactly. You are probably getting bumped up by a QDF bonus before assuming your proper ranking. You are mistaking this for a penalty.

    You definitely need to investigate social media for your sites. In my experience a good social media presence can be the difference between penalty and no penalty.

    You also need to build links relative to your content. It would be weird to build 200 links and no content, and it would be weird to post 30 articles with no links and no social media engagement. Normal people do not write in a void - they care about their work, and try to get it seen.

    Try building 3 main pages, then social, then other pages, but share each page as you go. Also try for unique video / images for even better trust ranking.

    This can help you past the penalty, but then of course ranking is a whole other set of factors.

      I have analyzed the social media things. There is one competitor website which social media presence is very bad, as compare to that website my website have good twitter sharing, facebook like etc. I also tried to recover my website by improving social media presence but did not see any improvement.

      My websites niche is online gaming, so I already get good sharing from the popular games. Also when I say about link I did not build heavy links, as my previous one website already penalized, so I take very precaution in building link. So I do not think I have built any bad link.

    Try this one if you have not tried. Use Webmaster tools. Check links to your site and analyze the latest links.

    I suspect your hosting or a poisoned domain name.

    Get a new "brandable" domain name without any keywords in it (lucky8online.com for example), try to get some cheap hosting on eBay, build a site, get a few links and wait to see what happens.

      Can you please inform me how a hosting account can harm on ranking. Well my domain names are somehow exact match domain. But the thing is most of my competitor's website also have EMD. But they are still ranking on their keywords, but not mine. So I am confused, if the case is for EMD, then why my website rankings go down, why not their?

      I have now started another domain which is very old, but not exact match. Now let see how this website will perform later. If my previous websites will not recover then there is nothing any problem, but if I come to know what exactly done mistake my me, then it is less possibility to get penalize my new website. So I just want to know what is the mistake I am doing for all of my previous website.

    What type of links do you build and at what speed?

    Still using automated software and crappy content for your back links perhaps. You ain't telling me that you get 100% natural back links each time, you must have created some process that you keep repeating and that gets you penalized.
