    I started building some DNN links to my citation pages to see if it would give them a boost in the 7 pack. 24 hours later my business listing completly dropped out for the keywords I was link building for. Anyone else ever have this happen to them and can you get back in the 7 pack once you are knocked out?

    DNN?

    Could be a dance. Give it some time to settle.

    If it's a legit biz, get a real review from a customer on your Goog+, Google will see the local IP and hopefully they have an existing (aged) gmail.

    How many links did you build exactly?

    How many citations do you have?
    What kind of links did you build to them, how many, and at what velocity?
    Do you have any reviews on your places page?
    How long was it in the 7 pack and at what ranking?
    Where is the business listing now? Did it just fall to 8 or did it fall out of existence?

    Its a legit business with over 50 legit G+ reviews. It ranks in the 7 pack for a bunch of different terms. I was trying to push a couple of the terms from 2 to 1 in local and I have been ranking in local for a couple of years now. I built some very powerful profile links I have used for leeching in the past to some of my citations like localeze or foursquare. I made 20 links with three different variations of anchor text. So each citation website got a total of three links.

    It still ranks for all of my other terms except the two keywords I was targeting. Those are now completely gone
