I purchased 5 article marketing backlinks (they link to my 5 internal pages), and 3 or 4 directory backlinks. But I hope that goguides and others will not hurt me. I will try removing such article backlinks and if it will not work I will remove the directory links.
I was in top page for those 5 kewyords
No big change, just about one position
third page for those 5 keywords or disappeared
my market is Italy, so no competitive like USA, but my keyords are about gambling.
I am still first for widget keyword1 keyword2, but penguinized for keyword1 keyword2 and the anchor of the purchased backlink is keyword1 keyword2. I'd say Penguin acted like a surgeon in my case.
