It's worth keeping what he says in mind if you link to your hubs from your other web 2.0 properties (eg infobarrel) or from your blog.
If anyone's traffic dropped on Oct 17th (penguin 3.0) they should pay particular attention
No evidence to back up what he has to say.....
Do a Google search on "Click here" and you will find the home page of Adobe as the vast majority of the links online to download Adobe say - "Click here".. So Anchor text is still a high ranking factor as to what traffic Google will send to a site...
That being said it is easy for Google to spot an unnatural link profile so just don't do it!!
LeanMan - anchor text is definitely an issue for those who have been penalised by penguin.
If people lost their rankings on Oct 17th (penguin day), then it doesn't hurt to give what he says a try. Beats doing nothing.
Not necessarily. Sometimes when people just try anything they see they can in fact make their stuation worse.
There will always be a Penguin, Panda, and what not. Maybe there'll be a Unicorn sometime in future. Who knows. In my case, traffic rises and drops ALL the time.
I've ceased to worry about Google problems long ago. I just work/tweak/update my hubs whenever I can, which is often these days.

Ok, so since the Penguin update I have sat here listening to lots of Hubbers complain of loss of traffic. Now we're not talking a little fluctuation in numbers, we are talking 80% gone overnight! For people who use Hubpages as a form of income, this is a serious issue. Up until...

Any ideas why my traffic dropped 20% since the April Penguin update?I have not been able to deduce the reason for this drop, especially since that Google update was aimed at 'black hat' SEO practices. Looking for suggestions from those more knowledgeable than I. Thanks!

After sitting on this for a few days it's looking to me that some HP writers just took another major hit with this newest "Penguin" update from Google.My page views after subdomains were about 5,000 a day. Then they sank to 2,500. Now today they are at a dismal 500 views - the slide...
