great sites with loyal users that survive Panda, only to be annihilated when Penguin ran because their link profile was 75% to 100% manipulative
Google is trying to help webmasters by telling them the links they are getting have no value and to stop wasting your time and money on them.Helping by penalizing - makes no sense.
you don't need links any more, you need advertising and a great user experience

My understanding of Penguin is *any* type of action that is used to artificially increase rankings.
I personally would only spend money trying to appear in ads that were relevant to my business
