How can you "organically" add 80% links, when not even ranking, AND avoid tripping another filter / penalty? Google has us between a rock and a hard place if you are right.
Well first... I don't have 1 domain - I have a thousand or so. I didn't lose any to PENGUIN but I do sell domains to others for linking purposes and they (mostly) got nailed... which provided me a unique opportunity do alot of testing and fine tuning.
You have to go back to basics to solve your problem... "what is an organic link and what is an inorganic link?" If you cannot resolve these basic questions you cannot recover on your own and it would be best for you to get out of Google optimization altogether because you will simply not develop a risk free strategy.
You obviously don't buy into the the idea that it's juss a penalty and come April it will be a year and they will let some of us out that have done as much as we can to fix what we are guessing to be the issues? I suppose that is what I am / was clinging to.
Mate, I've lost more domains long before PENGUIN to outright bans at almost a thousand with a net worth of a million+... PENGUIN isn't a penalty it's a radar gun that forces you to re-think your link building practices.
Do that and you'll be fine.
You have to re-teach yourself link development or you won't solve your problems... it isn't easy... nothing worth investing in ever is.
