    Hi all

    I am certain that about 10 of my sites were hit in google because I used BMR - there is no other reason.

    Does anyone know anyone who knows how to get out of this cry baby google farce?

    Cheers

    One of my sites was hit pretty badly too, went from #2 to #10. I was able to bring my site back up to #5. I suggest you keep building backlinks and adding content. Damn I miss BMR!

    Thats interesting - 2 to 10 is nothing really. All mine are from around position 1 to 5 - all killed to 500+
    This is really what a BMR slap looks like - more of a slaughter than a slap.

    You sure youve been BMR'd?

    You need backlinks to recover from getting "BMR'd"....

    Google deindexed the entire network as you know, and thus the real PageRank and overall value was lost. Now you need to rebuild that, especially if you relied heavily on them for your backlinks.

    It will take time, but you can recover. Just find backlinks to replace those lost.

    I've been able to recover a few clients who were hit mostly because of the BMR downfall. As SuperLinks said, it'll take time. The time will also depend on the scale of links you had (and a percentage of the overall) you had from BMR. But it's possible, yep.

    I think that there is more of a filter for BMR'd sites. It sounds like you guys are saying that there is no penalty for being linked to from the BMR network, simply a loss of rank due to lost links. I have to say though in my experience ive lost more than the link strength I got from BMR - a HELL OF A LOT MORE. Ive been utterly smashed and hammered - not just lost links.

    Im saying this because my rankings should drop by a page or so - in some cases I had so few BMR links to a site (say 4 rubbish ones like PR1) that my site should not even had moved if these links were lost. Infact the site was demolished - slashed out of the top 500.

    So I am suspecting a penalty ON TOP of the loss of link juice because I havent used any other BH things on the sites.

    It's an old thread but I wanted to confirm Spaceman's findings incase anyone needs info about this.

    It's 100% a penalty (or filter whatever) not just loss of rank due to missing links.
