    So i just had a site disappeared out of SERP just today. I haven't done anything drastic, apart from buying seo services here and there.

    The only time I used my main kw was 1 year ago, and it has nothing wrong, all kws moved up. I then followed a very strict strategy to only use naked URL for linking.

    I went in ahrefs to check, and the anchors are all naked URL anchors dominating the charts. Tried to poke and dig everything I can find for a mistake but couldn't. The only thing I'm guessing is that the naked URL is being used as anchor was perhaps the culprit. I suppose I can actually link out without making anchor text?

    Oh and btw, if you really want to find out if your site is really deindexed, just create a googl url shortener and you will see if it links out or not.

    It sucks to have happened at such critical time when i needed cash the most. All other proj have failed except for this site earning 500$ per month. To think of rebuilding this is just ridiculous. I don't exactly have tons of cash to be investing in all sorts of IM stuffs.

    Sites /pages seem to be appearing and reappear for a lot of webmasters lately. Its been less than a day, stop freaking out haha. It might be some type of split test from what Ive read about it.

    There has been no report anywhere. If there is bhw will have all front page with such incidents. I tested a surefire method, using site:search and then their own url shortener. The shortener has been tested against deindexed pbn and it has confirmed 100% that it's gone forever.

    Nope. Naked anchors cannot get you penalty.

    Your site is de-indexed or just not ranking anywhere for the target kw?

    when buying links you have be extra careful and understand what you are doing, most of the cheap services have no regard or whatsoever on your business, they only good in taking your money with no mercy and responsibility

    @umerjutt00 I can say it is deindexed. It just happened. Now someone might be having happy fingers reporting so i dont know. What i know is, i'm not even ranking #1 for the most competitive term. Someone could have still reported all of those sites ranking for that niche regardless of what kw it is.

    It could be that one of the pbn link sellers domain got deindexed alot and it traced back to me. Who knows. But if it happened that way, I would see all of his domain deindexed but actually half of them still survive.

    If it's spam links it dosen't matter what your anchor text is. Spam will always be spam.

    oh yeah? explain all of them in page 1 to 10 (yes, page). Their link profile is way more spammier and its one of the spammiest niche around. Anchor text ratio at more than 50% main. i tried to play clean, but it was perhaps just one tiny loophole i got caught. nvm. i'm not going to linger on this thread anymore. I know its done for. if google doesnt give me any WMT report then there's nothing i can do at all.

    i wish i would have bought a aged domain and age it even more so i can 301 it, because if i 301 this right now it's gonna go nowhere.

    edit: over at the cpa chat lots of people are confirming deindexing of the same niche. something is definitely up. i'm surprised myself this niche is getting attention from G as if it's one of the spammy niches. there are so much more niche to be targeting for penalty yet they chose this.
