.what about diluting the negative links with good links?
All site's can have bad links pointing to them. When the level of bad exceeds a good threshold then you have a problem. Without a doubt, increase the good links and you dilute the bad.
Also go more social with your links and vary the anchor text to make it look more natural. When reverse engineering a heavily SEO'ed site it's so obvious which sites have abused anchor text and which sites have grown organically.
exact match domains tend to have other factors. I don't think its a factor or otherwise "Toyota.com" is stuffed.
True, ,maybe I should of said more generic keywords or more commerce related like buywidgets or onlinewidgets ... those were hammered.
or to simply hope Google will reassess these in a future update
The Penguin update is shocking, just look @ <snip> related searches and you will see 3/10 sites in top 10 with notices that "this site may harm your computer" and hijacked EDU sites OR sites with no mention of the word <snip> EVER and having nothing to do with topic or subject, yet they rank. Google needs to tweak this algo as the results are shocking. I dont want to see how stuff works or read wiki articles :)
[edit reason] Please no specific keywords [/edit]
