    I had a very simple website, only 1 page (a few pictures, and about 400 words of text), which was ranking very well for about a year for very competitive keywords. Just before the Panda update it was generating close to $500/day!

    The only SEO I did was, a couple of SENuke profiles, a bunch of Scrapebox blast, and a few Xrumer blasts. I also put links on a few websites I own which have pagerank (PR1, PR2, and PR3).

    Then suddenly, one morning, traffic was dead. I checked my SERPs and I was down to page 5-6 for my main keywords. :(

    I left it like that for a month and it didn't move. After a month I decided to try and improve the site. I added a contact us page, and a privacy policy. Then I added several more pages with related content. All the new content has been indexed, but the homepage is still ranking at page 5 or 6.

    Last week I have started building links again, in hopes of getting good rankings again. I'm currently using Scrapebox and Xrumer with slow blasts.

    Anyone else has a similar experience since the Panda update?

    Have you been completely de-indexed, or did your site only got penalized?

    How far down did Google tak you?

    Any luck in climbing again in the SERPs? :confused:
