  3. Hello John, this is my 1st visit in your blog. 1st of all I would like to appreciate your effort for sharing such a great write up with the readers. I want to add here something and I think this should be the best platform where I can say my views about the same topic you have been discussed. After updating Penguin – Google is looking for genuine sites where he does not get any kind of SPAM. And Google launches some rules for protecting your website. One of the most important rules is – “Use of Social networking sites” – Facebook, digg, twitter, delicious, reditt – etc what you have mentioned over here – besides those there are lots of other sites like pinterest, tagged, hi5 etc – which can help you to protect your site from the SLAP of the PENGUIN. So beware and keep concentrate in these works. Thanks anyways 🙂
