    Hi SEO guys,

    I have been working for a E-commerce based site for 7 months. Our site ranked for 5 months(1st Page in Google). But today, after penguin 2.1 live , our site hits by this update. I have built all back-links from high PR sites and don't use low quality sites for back-links building. I don't know why Google hits us. I also notice many quality site(PR 5-6) also lost their ranks. Can anybody please let me know, how can i find out the specific reason for this hits of our site? I also want to know , Do I need to wait 7 days for seeing this update ? How can I recover this? Please help me & let me know details.

    Best Luck to All,,,,

    Getting out of the penalty is really hard even you've put more effort on it. It is just easier to start all over again by building a new site and rewrite the contents. That would save you time and money. Also, now it is time to diversify anchor text and avoid these type of links: article directories, blog comments, profile links, directories that isn't strict on reviewing sites, non popular web 2.0s.
    What's been still working and hasn't been hit by Penguin 2.1 are private highpr blog networks.

    Thank you for your reply.Our site is over popular on social media and it not possible to rebuild it again because its not a personal blog. Its a E-commerce based site. Please explain more about private HighPR blog networks. You suggest me to avoid article directories, blog comments, profile links, directories but without those how can we grow up our business? For usually people find content or articles as their needs and try to get the best solution. If here come a restricted to comment then how people contribute with each other? second point , directories : High PR and authority based directory sites have a good position and they still giving their value. If we avoid those sites , then how can they live? If Google dislike directory links then why doesn't Google hit those sites? In penguin 2.0 update, I heard that Google doesn't like paid links but now why they dislike free directories links? please let me reply about this.

    First thing I want to suggest you to check your website content. Free directories are not good for Google ranking now a days because they have no value, there is duplicate content on these website. What you thing, these have Good PR that's why. I think not, this is only reason you are getting back links. You must need to focus on Page Rank where you are listed. It will be 0. So directory submission are useless these days.

    Most article directories are spammed to death. The likes of blog comments and profile links for SEO/linkbuilding is not the way to go for SEO 2013. Directories without strict manual approval, your links will end up having bad neighborhood which means your link will be surrounded with links pointing to crap sites. For a good seo, it is about finding on how to place your links on relevant high pr sites. Some of us build our own PR blog network and it is working.
    In your situation its really hard since you still have visitors going to your site via social sites. Your option1(which I recommend) is build a new site and keep the penalized site as well. Seo the new site better this time. Option 2- you can let someone get your site out of the penalty but this would require more money spend and most likely will be a waste of time and money. It is your choice. But, you could wait a while and see how it goes then decide. But the longer you wait, most likely nothing will happen.

    Saddam forget about recovering from penguin 2.1 because you can't ...once your website got Google Algo hit only 1% chances are there you will recover from hit. As you will start recovering from hit with fresh work Google will again hit a refresh and again you will be disappointed.

    I don't want to sound too discouraging, but I don't think there's a real way out of it. The whole idea of Penguin 2.1 is to stop spammy, poor quality websites from dominating Google searches. Even some quality websites with tens of thousands of monthly visitors have already lost half, and in some cases 80% of their traffic. To find a way to get recovered for an average website that got hit by Penguin 2.1 update is virtually impossible. I hear some people are really, really hurting right now.

    I don't get any notification via web master tool after penguin 2.1 update. Do I need to use Google disavow tool for removing irrelevant anchor back-links? Kindly help me with this issue.
