As the title suggests, I believe a 2 month old site of mine which was doing just fine in the serps for a host of keywords may have been burned as a result of perfectly aligned anchor text. The site crashed on the 27th of August following which the home page also disappeared from G for a couple of days and returned. A few weeks in now rankings have dropped to mid 200's from page 1 for the majoirty of terms. The home page has come back at around position 50 from the highs of #6... Obvioulsy scratching my head as to the cause - there has been no excessive link building just nice and slow good quality stuff, I have ruled out links as the problem. But today I checked my GWT links and noticed that the majority of my pages have perfactly aligned anchor texts. I used a couple of variations for each page but nothing too major (prob around 80%). I am now convinced that my over use of perfect anchor text on a 'new' site caused the crash - I am now using a raft of KW variations for each page drawn from GWT keywords - interesting to see if that does the trick... Any of you guys (and gals) seeing anything like this on newer sites?
