My advice for Penguin / Panda / Caffeine / May Day / etc, etc, etc recovery? Switch to Bing!
Let's face it, if you're lucky enough to recover from Google's endless tinkering, it's just gonna happen again, and again.
They've lost my trust and my "user love".
Would you dump Google "IF" you actually knew what to do?
You can't be a great or even a mediocre brain surgeon if you merely dabble in the trade... and let's not forget Bing can change as well and then what... "Screw it ... I'll only worry about Dogpile!"
Part of the problem people have with Google is they don't learn anything... they tip & trick their way to the top and when those tips & tricks stop working... "they are at a loss!"
I lost a few domains and so far recovered over half... not because I gave up and went to Bing.
If you get a manual review and then revoked... that isn't the end of it... you still need to clear the algorithm (threshold) before you can recover... and that takes "FOREVER" unless you force Googlebot to recrawl everything now.
Lastly, I thought this was a Google recovery thread and not a give up and take my marbles and go home thread.
Post Bing info in the Bing Forum.
