    over optimization mean more than one time keyword use in Meta tags, Meta descriptions and keywords density in website content. Google now focus on the branding. You can try to get quality links not focus on quantity.

    Sorry to say but both are of different track. One is on-page and other is off-page in off-page over optimization there is not specific number of links that has been mentioned and in on-page the access usage of keywords is known as keyword stuffing. Both aren't allowed by search engine and recent updates are strictly against it.

    Search engine Did not fixed any number about backlink in a day but link acquisation rate should be realistic, I mean if you got 400 links in a day it looks somewhat spammy.

    There were no specific number of links, whats important to avoid over optimization is to acquire quality backlinks, avoid keywords stuffing and have quality content.

    Over optimization in the sense, stuffing your keywords in your content, anchor text (both internal and external links)..

    first of all over optimization on off page as well on page..
    off page with links & anchor text we use...
    on page so much use of on page factors...

    i also agree with Jill that.. it's not possible to build hundred of links in one day.. realistic links is very much is to get... it's not by created.....

    as well very good to see the latest updation discussion on forum,,,,,
    last penguin is been affected so many things & will filter so many new things.. i think that will create a huge problem if we do the same thing continues....
    I also agree with that..

    Everything you do really can be over optimized. Everything that looks too intentional, too perfect and too obvious could be regarded as over optimization. I agree with Indusharma and Petric: Think in terms of quality. But also diversity.

    If there was a limit to the number of backlinks that you can make per day, then it would have been easy for the competitors to bring you down crashing and burning. But there's this one video before wherein Matt Cutts said that Google has made it hard for the competitors to bring down another competitor's site. The deal with this over-optimization update is that you should build your links and use the on-page factors in such a way that it follows the guidelines set by Google.

    Spamming and over optimization in off-page optimization includes links & anchor text.

    Spamming and over optimization in on-page includes keywords stuffing in content, title, anchor text (both internal and external links) and so on

    Not limit. But one think you just submit on High PR and category related site. Otherwise everything is ok.

    Over optimization is basically going beyond the usual or natural page optimization. This may be caused by over stuffing of keywords or the use of unnaturally acquired links and whatnot.

    Over optimization means when you are optimizing your site more than its requirement. Avoid repeating the keywords in meta tags and description. Try to submit your links in high page rank sites.Because Google is now considering the quality links not the quantity of the links.

    If you want to save from over optimization penality then try to submit quality content and avoid keywords stuffing in content and meta tags.

    The idea is it make back linking look as natural as possible. So to do this here are a few good rules to follow;
    Alternate link text
    Gain links from a variety of sources and source types
    Use a mixture of follow and no-follow links

    Wait, don't do meta description? I think you should because that's a part of what appears on the search results. Actually, what appears there would depend on the query, but I think you have better chances on the rankings if you have a description that fits what you think the people will use as a search term.
