    Hi Guys,

    This is probably a never ending story but lol around 4 weeks ago, 3 of my new sites that started in September got slapped within a day or so of each other, i was messing with HPBL services to quickly without buillding other types of links (trying to get higher rankings to quickly) which as you know is a big mistake after all these algo changes, all 3 sites are waaay back in the SERPs 100's+ one site moved back up to page 2 for ther last few days but todays it's back into oblivion.

    All slaps were definately due to my backlinking methods i relied to much on HPBL services then deleted them which dropped a good few high PR links at the one time.

    Does anyone have any idea how much longer (roughly, i know it's ahard question to answer) these types of penalties last? i don't know whether to build backlinks to them as usual (i stopped because i dind't want to make it worse) continue to leave them alone untill they pop out.

    any info would be appreciated :)

    thanks guys

    Graham

    I know the time is between 6 to 9 months and then you sites can still go back in rankings

    I made nav bar links from related niche sites to get my sites back

    as far as I remember such penalty can last to about 1 or 2 months. You know google treats the same penalties in different way to make it harder for us to understand its algos.

    If you're willing to take Matt Cutts on his word, the duration of the penalty depends on the level of the severity they have assigned your offense. Starting at around 30 days.

    Hi Guys,

    Normally we would just start new sites and let them come back when they come back, but these sites are tied to a license!

    cheers guys
