    After massive link campaign, my site went down for only one main kw.

    What i did is i built tons of links (1 000) with 2 of my main kw as anchor text, i build 2 tiers linking to my backlinks using the same 2 kw :).

    Few days ago my site went from #8 to #21. I guess i over did my link building.

    What would be your suggestions to fix it ?

    It's probably just a dance adjustment anyway, as the search engines discover your links and work out what they mean in terms of your overall ranking. However if you want to perform some action whilst waiting, continue building.

    I do continue building links, however i think should i maybe increase my anchor texts to around 20 kws related to my main kw ?

    Personally I do 50% of my anchor as my primary and maybe 5 other KWs at 10% each. Once I see where we're ranking for those terms I tinker as necessary.

    You should find that you rank some keywords that you haven't anchored just because of the link love comingto your site.

    Get some backlinks with random anchor texts and try to add some social backlinks (tweets to established accounts, social bookmarks, facebook likes, etc), you can outsource this cheaply in fiverr ;)

    I have experienced it multiple times. All the times the site came back stronger than it was for that keyword... keep backlinking.
