    Hi,

    I have a news blog about what people searches for. The thing is I had a lot of articles in top 5 google which that brought traffic like 2000 visitors per day and today i have just 300 visitors. That means a lot of my articles dropped from google.

    Here are the changes I made:

    - Two days ago, I setup 3 campaigns for one article (one longtail page,
    that means only a keyword) with the same anchor. [I learned that is bad]

    - also i setup 1 campaign pointed to main page with anchor "website"...

    - yesterday I deleted the post-meta (date, author) from post

    - two days ago I made some changes at the adsense ad (300x250), i've just align left but yesterday i've put back like it was

    All backlinks i've made are from web 2.0 profiles, social network, bookmarking and a few article directories. All made with senuke x.

    and today... here is my website dropped hard. The good thing is I learned something: don't do lot of tests in a few days because now I don't have any ideea from were is the problem.

    Hope an opinion from you guys would help me.

    Thank you

    It's a big dance. It started yesterday afternoon, probably about 18 hours ago. I had two calls from clients within 30 minutes each telling me they were ranked #1. That's when I ran all of my rank trackers again to verify.

    Well... if that's true I think we should continue with building backlinks.

    Any opinions? Thanks

    Can you help me with some links please? I'm really confused, I don't know what to think.

    Maybe is from my aggresive backlinks, maybe is from wp plugin seo search terms2, maybe is because I've deleted the post-meta...

    confused, confused, confused :confused:

    BHopkins, i wanted to ask what you do in such a situation? For me this is the first important dance I see on my websites and I don't know what to do properly.

    I made some little changes on my blog. I disabled the seo search terms 2 plugin, added back the post-meta...

    I'm sure you are an experienced member and you know what to do in that case.

    Thank you.

    Whether ranked #1 or #1000 I never stop building links. This is what your links should look like for every site you're working on.

    I wouldnt give up immediately, but at some point if your site doesnt recover in few weeks it was probably nailed by a Google reviewer

    Especially if your words move to page 5.
