    It's nice to read tips that seem straight to the point and easy to understand although there's nothing new in it but it's a constant reminder on how we can avoid being slapped or get affected by Google Penguin.

    Thank you very much!

    Great find and share Gaz!

    I have made the thread a sticky in the hope that people will read some of the great articles linked to in the main article

    Hopefully this will give people some insight before having to ask questions here so they can try to workout what's wrong with their own sites a little easier.

    • number8pie agrees : Thanks for making it sticky.

    What surprises me is that people are calling networks microsites now... Bit odd, I would not really be advising that at all. Sure they could work but all that work where there is a larger risk of them all being taken out in one swoop: is it really worth while? My advice? Build a brand which can withstand these updates. Focus on building up social popularity and driving as much sticky (good user behavior stats/return visits) users as possible. You would then have to just do a bit of manual link building to try push that relevance and these would be covered by the amount of natural links your brand is receiving (even if you bought these links).

    You could add the SEOmoz posts also


    That's so nice to have such good list of resources to understand the Penguine Update but I Was expecting the SEOmoz blogs also to be indexed in the list ! Thanks

    I agree. I'm really leery of the whole "microsite" concept. It sounds exactly like the stuff JC Penney did last year to get into major hot water. It might work now but what about next year?

    Just noticed this thread...where's it been hiding?
    good info Gaz.
    I pretty much agree with the findings. And unless I missed it I think the diversity of links should cover both types of links, not just backlinks. I also think micro sites could be micro pages rather than sites. Unless I missed something.
    Thanks gaz.

    Anchor Text Variation


    Hi Everyone,

    I'm kind of a newbie to SEO (have been working in an agency for the last 6 months).

    Here's my question (albeit a dumb one). If Google is penalizing websites for over optimizing anchors texts with money keywords (I hear more than 60%), than how else are we supposed to optimize a page for keywords?

    I fear that eventually, Google may do away completely with money keywords in anchor texts. As I'm aiding clients in SEO, it may be prudent to think and plan ahead.

    Thanks!

    You need to figure out what it is google is looking for then create your plan of attack.

    that's a good question - with little perfect answer. The problem lies in the fact that the algo changes. What is considered acceptable today may trigger a penalty tomorrow.

    About two years ago I started getting inbound links to my website using my company name. That seems like a good idea now with penguin, but what about next year? Perhaps my company name will trigger a filter next time. I don't think this is outside the realm of possibility.

    I think the only solution is to generalize your approach. Look at what you're doing and ask, is it generally a good idea long term? Some specific tips:
    - be very careful about leaving any types of SEO footprints. particularly if everyone is using a technique, the Google may be looking for patterns. Don't fit the pattern.
    - get a diverse blend of backlinks
    - try not to do anything to excess. If you're doing a lot of blog posts, stop and try something else.
    - Limit yourself to quality backlinks. if it's not a quality site, ontopic, etc, then consider passing.

    All of that is still no guarantee.

    Google Penguin is all about keywords backlink according to my knowledge, removing keywords back links is absolute need and building brand authority. To see how strong your brand search in google, if you see more then 7 result then you need to build your branded link
