The search for anyone at all who has escaped Penguin is a tough one. There's been only one update and that only affected 0.1% of searches.
These two approaches sound like things people tried to escape Panda - it would be interesting if they work at all for Penguin, too. Breaking a connection to heavily manipulated backlinks sounds like something worth trying, however I'm not so sure that backlinks are playing the heavy role that so many people think they they do. After all, backlink devaluation and manual backlink warnings and penalties occurred at about the same time, but they were independent from Penguin.
That said, I'd also like to hear from anyone who escaped Penguin, including the use of these two approaches.
