    Around 12/22, the guy we have working on our companies SEO decided to test out a new linklist (full of Web 2.0's, Blogs comments, etc) and blast backlinks directly to my money site (no 2nd, or 3rd tier links.) Wasn't seeing any movement until about the 29th, in which we saw a huge drop on one of our main keywords (from 2nd, to 8th), which stayed 8 until yesterday when it dropped to 9th.

    So I'm pretty sure we received a penalty on the site, but I was wondering what the best course of action would be to a site that's been recently penalized? I also went and disavowed all of the links in hopes that the bad neighborhood links are discredited... though I've heard this can take weeks.

    Is it a bad idea to start building links again manually, or should I have him settle down until I see the rank reverts back to its' original position (if it ever does)?

    Thanks ahead of time!!!

    Ouch. Check your anchor text diversity. If your SERP has settled, slowly drip some diversified, quality backlinks with highly diversified anchors. Look as natural as possible... big G is watching you now... :redindian

    Bah. Still really frustrating.

    Was disavowing the links the right first step?

    People seem to have differing opinions on the disavow tool so it is hard to say. You have done it now so I wouldn't worry about it. Just carry on with the manual link building.

    That's not a penalty. If you had gotten a penalty then your site would be gone from the first page.

    Hi bro, i think your site not ban, Penalty only


    There are various connected with factors your web site may well removed from The search engines, usually for the reason that a site has broken the Google Webmaster Guidelines in some way.

    The most severe Google penalties lead to total website ban and de-indexing


    Reason for Penalty:
    Bad Links from or to Google banned sites
    Linking to bad neighbourhoods
    Automated query penalty
    Over optimization penalties and filters
    Duplicate Content problems
    Duplicate Websites & Domain Aliases
    Hidden text or links
    Keyword stuffing
    Check for Malware Problems
    Automated page redirects
    Link buying or selling
    Reciprocal link building campaigns
    Paid links on Commercial Directories
    Same Registrant Domains
    Content Feeds


    your site may be punished for associating with black hat purveyors.
