There are different school of thoughts, a lot of us have tried a lot of things which we felt are right, but did any one actually recover? changing internal links, removing spammy links, building better links, adding more content, changing back link strategies etc etc, but still no recovery? any one?
To me it has started to feel like the punishment is somewhat permanent. I got links from very big news sites, other general big sites, all editorial links. I also removed links which i felt could be the reason, but all in vain! There is more to penguin which none of us could nail so far.
As far Penguin is concerned, i strongly believe it is punishment and not just the devaluation of links, i also strongly believe if your on page is top notch, your users love your stuff, your content is awesome, you have massive social media presence then you are immune to penguin, atleast to some extent.
