I have a web site that has been doing the google dance for about 5 months now. It will be in the rankings for 2 weeks and then lose its ranking then come back for a little while. anyway, google has dropped off about 3,000 backlinks it did have and completely discredited them. The site was showing 6k+ backlinks in webmastet tools and within the last week it has lost about 3k+ links and only shows about 2862 links. Can anyone point me in the direction on why this is happening? Used scrapebox, senuke and bought some xrumer blasts. I thought that if google credit you with a backlink from a site it would stick for the life of the site, or am i wrong?
