    It's so annoying. Sometimes i wish Google don't update but .... I think SAPE is no longer effective and it should be only private networks from now on

    I think they're hitting so many sites this week that they're behind on sending the unnatural links emails - I got hit on a site yesterday, and didn't get the email until today. Usually there's a few days after you get the email before you see a drop.

    Not many will like this advice, but stay away from linkbuilding packages and invest your time and money in research so you can SEO your site(s) yourself. This is ment for those who want their sites ranking on a long term. For short term sites the packs (might) work.

    Also, do not use sape.

    My best site dropped from position 1 to position 10 a week ago. I had been at position 1 for 5 months. Now I see that the top spot is taken by Amazon, 2nd is a newspaper article, 2 others are Ebay and another is a Wikipedia article. Not really sure what to make of it. I have never used Sape links. Not sure if i should leave it alone or start to build links.

    It's done on purpose. They have a patent on this: it's designed to catch SEOs. They insert a deliberate time lapse between actions, so you have time to turn yourself in.

    For example. They say you got unnatural links, but don't penalize you yet. You go and remove links....so you've just turned yourself in, how could you remove links if you didn't place them?

    Google is using FUD against you.

    If nobody did anything about all their warnings and shit, Google wouldn't be able to control webmasters. Unfortunately, game theory and human nature say webmasters will all turn each other in. That is very unfortunate, because only google will profit.

    This is borderline philosophical.

    If you use these private links use them SMART or else risk the consequences. ;)

    i will say it again - private networks are the ONLY way to go

    unless churn and burn is your moto which confuses me as thats just throwing away money

    private networks (no not those advertised) that are of good quality can last a huge amount of time and do a ton for rankings.

    i have one i have been apart of for years and works on all my new clients domains.

    Don't waste your breath mate, i've been saying it for over a year now that google was (a) going to, and (b) is now using the list of disavowed links against us. But nobody listens..

    Asking if other's peoples rankings have changed prob. isn't going to help you. I recommend www.mozcast.com, shows fluctuations in G's algorithm in an easy to understand way.

    Yes and this is because of the latest Google algorithm update.

    When Google boosts their Internet Association members higher in the serps, or gives them multiple listings in a row, other sites must fall. Google is hoping that all small businesses will jump on the Adwords train before the holidays and spend $1 to make $0.99 or less. That's how the free market works when you are as big as Google is and can manipulate the hell out of it.
