HI again, learnseo81:
When I say fresh backlinks, I'm creating links gradually from relevant sources as everybody else is doing.
Would you mind letting us know how many backlinks you build in a month? I think this is VERY important.
Are they all to the same page? Or different pages?
I'm not linking to anyone and there must be a reason for the penalty.
Purely a guess here, but I think the fact that you AREN'T linking out to anyone might be a problem. I am sure there are probably SOME sites that don't link out to anyone and are fine. But maybe a combination of rapid backlink acquisition, narrowly focused anchor text, narrowly focused target page, and lack of outbound links MIGHT make google think there is page rank manipulation going on.
But please do let us know some metrics; how many links were you getting, to how many different pages were the links pointing to, and how many anchor text variations were you using?
