Thanks E2M Solution.... As I have searched lots of of
January 17th 2013 updates and ask many others SEO experts about the same, but
no one has a clear idea. So your post is considered as a strong statement for 17th
on the cake is your post is also explaining the Do and Don't
List which is great....
Excellent piece! Comprehensive post I've ever read on Link Devaluation and how to deal with it.
There was defiantly something that happened on the week of Jan 15-18. What exactly we may never know. Google is defiantly getting smarter at what links to count and which ones shouldn't.
That's right Stuart. We've tried sharing our experience with what we've noticed and the concerns we came across from different people. It makes perfect sense that we might never know what changes are happening every other day.
Would love to see this article but my company firewall is blocking the site for some reason. Is it available anywhere else?

Google has changed it's algorithm on 17 January 2013.Mostly country specific domain were affected by this slightly change of google. For more information regarding this read this blog : http://srivastavarahul.blogspot.com
Not the main point of the article, but worth pointing out that: "Penguin targets entire sites that either use manipulative links to rank their own site or other sites." is definitely false. I've done multiple tests that show it to be (at least in several cases) URL based, not site wide.
I think the problem is that a manipulative practice is usually done on a global scale so in most cases you have a full penalization.
I've never seen a website that spam only one URL :D
Would be excellent if you could share the details of the test..
