A month ago Google M.C. answered a question about internal linking and their effect on Penguin 1.0 Update.
M.C. responded “Typically, internal website links will not cause you any sort of trouble. Now, the reason why I say ‘typically not’ rather than a hard ‘no’ is just because as soon as I say a hard ‘no’ there will be someone who has like five thousand links – all with the exact same anchor text on one page. But if you have a normal site, you know…a catalog site or whatever…. you’ve got breadcrumbs…you’ve got a normal template there…that’s just the way that people find their way around the site, and navigate, you should be totally fine.”
I think this statement should be revisited since Penguin 2.0. because I don’t see any other reason for regular white hat sites to get penguinized other than internal linking.
How can the algorithm make a collateral damage to dozens of websites without chasing their internal structure and nail them.
