    I bought a 5k blast for 2 keywords for my site. They're keywords with not a lot of traffic, but very little competition. I made second page with just a couple of social submissions and backlinks, but with the service I bought here my rankings totally fell. From #4 spot and rising, I fell to second to last on the page. The purpose of the site is just for tech info not profit. Although I plan on monetizing it later, atm it's just a very fun hobby. Is there anyway to recover from these "blasts"? Should I do some more manual SEO and keep on writing my articles?

    Don't think your supposed to blast direct. Yes To recover just keep publishing and building links - but just keep it looking a lot more natural.

    How old is the site?

    Did you use keywords in name?

    Just blast your competitors away and your problem is solved. :D

    Seriously, Google just rolled out another panda tweak that impacted a lot of people. Before you blame the SB blast, take a closer look at the timing of Google's menstrual cycle.

    The site was about iPhones earlier and i renovated it to tech hardware, before I was getting love from google though. It's 10 months old. Not in the site, but in the blast yes.

    It's probably just a dance, don't worry about it.

    The blast was for 5k, spread to 2 urls of my site with the keywords of the articles I want to rank for.

    i hope it's just a dance, I was really getting comfortable with the site doing OK.

    You need to make it look as if the site is goin viral at this point. Or wait. There is a thread about making a site look like it's going viral on here. Basically buy some social media shit, and some good context links. should be good to go after that. Plus G did another Shitty chinese bear update.

    Your domain is 10 months old, so at least it is not completely new. But it likely went from getting a few links to suddenly 5,000 links.

    I'm not sure about you, but Google has their stuff decently down pat. You went from a natural looking amount of links, to several thousand new links over night to your money site?

    If it doesn't look natural to you, it probably doesn't either to Google.

    Secondly, you only used 2 keywords. Even if the links 'were' natural, do you think there would be 5000 natural links made, using only two different keywords? Using 2 keywords for a 5K blast is the type of stuff you blast to your Web 2.0's to shield your money site. If anything, you should have used more keywords in there, not just two.

    Also, did you target just one specific page, or various inner pages in your blast? Targeting just one page, with 5,000 links and only two keywords over the span of a day would all add up to something suspicious for Google.

    Anyway, your domain is 10 months old so perhaps not much will happen. To be honest, you shouldn't be worried that it went down the first page in the SERP's because it's good that it hasn't dropped out completely. So far, it just looks like a Google dance and results will likely come back up.

    Had it dropped off of results completely... then you would be able to complain!

    Just keep hitting it and it'll come back. Makes more sense to Google when they see thousands everyday.

    A 5k blast for 2 low competition kw's is. Overkill. You could have easily written a few articles and outranked your competition with quality content. This all depends. ON the amount of globals and monthlys for these. 2 kw's and the type of content you're. Capable of writing.

    its probably just a small google dance or possibly a penalty from having spam links directly to your money site. i dont think its a good idea anymore to blast spam links directly to you main URL. instead, you should set up some blogs or articles and then blast spam links to those. this is common knowledge now so you can keep your main web site "protected" from spam links which might cause a decrease in rankings. the best thing that you can do for now is continue to build high quality links every single day.

    I never had this problem, and I am blasting directly my mains websites. Anyway, you opened my eyes and I`ll be careful from now on, I should blast just links to my websites. I am not using scrapebox anymore, just xrumer.
