I have access to all my article marketing accounts.

So if I want to I can go in there and fix all exessive anchor text.

Is this a good strategy? Might it make my penguin affect sites go back up?

Will it trigger a red flag to Google and reinforce their penalty because changing the anchor text would mean admission of "guilt"?

Really iosifg?

Acutally I did fix a few of them and my rankings didn't tank but it's slower...

So better not to touch them all all?

Please share more details aobut this iosifg.

@iosifg:
The next day? Then it surely is not due to removals because google needs some time to realize them.


@Oimachi2: As you are already penalized I don't think Google will do it twice - just because you try to correct a mistake and basically doing the "right". Matt Cutts recommends deleting before disavowing.

Google has already recognized you as a Spammer, so the removal sholud not hurt you.
If it is the same with CHANGING the anchors... I don't know. May depend on the number. May be a good idea to change also the text, not only the anchor.
