For those of you that have been living under the proverbial rock, (or don't care) a recent Moz Whiteboard Friday by Josh Bachynski stirred up a whole bunch of controversy. It surrounded not only the efficacy of using the disavow (as a stand-alone for Penguin issues) as well as how one should conduct themselves in public forums.

Me? I have always maintained that there's probably some form of trust scoring that is associated with them and they are indeed, worth doing (with Penguin or a manual penalty for "unnatural links").

...

So, the gang here at the Dojo have been taking shots at when the next Google Penguin update is going to be. They tend to roll every 6 months or so... which means we'due.

When do you think it will be? Let me know in the comments... oh and here's a little movie poster we came up with just for fun...

Penguin  3.0

Hits: 1742

Originally I had wrote a post that covered both the history of the messages and a collection of replies to various reconsideration requests. It became quite evident that it was going to be a bit much for a single post, so this is part II of the series.

You can find Part I here;

Again, the goal here is really about keeping a running record of the various messages and replies from Google. Over time we can learn from them and hopefully help some folks when they get the urge to freak out.

...

Yes, it sucks. Yes... getting one is never fun. But it does happen and it happens a lot. Hell, it's been the cornerstone of a lot of my SEO consulting work over the last few years. When things go wrong, they seek out the fixer!

Anyway, I figured it was time that I had somewhere to keep my collection of various manual actions and reconsideration request replies for all time. Something to refer to for relevance and history. So here we go.....

Not sure if you have a manual penalty? Try out this new tool from Google.
