For this week’s Whiteboard Friday, Rob Kerry of Ayima joins the studio to talk about the Penguin update to Google.

Now, as long as on-page is optimised properly and there are a few links into it using commercial terms, just build up the authority and trust of the website.
In Open Site Explorer, look at the group linking domains for your website. If your commercial terms are near the top, you need to work on getting better links going into your site. This is basically Google’s step towards an over-optimisation penalty.
Do NOT use these people, as adding pages and pages of content will negatively affect you.
