    Hi everyone,

    I'm writting this out of a bit of desperation and hoping for some advice before google deindexs my site. About 2 years ago I started a site. Today it has 2000 daily uniques and makes aprox $800 usd a month with 300 unique articles between 4000 words and 800 words each.

    As of 2 months ago I had about 20 total backlinks on the site form high quality domains, most my rankings came from content with one page generating 50% of visitors and being #1 for its keyword. Today I dropped to #3 and though it was fishy and went into majestic and semrush. I found that in the past month my backlinks have gone from 20 to 6,400 and my trust flow is shown as n/a for the url and 26 for citation flow.

    I looked into the backlinks and their all to my money keywords from cheap blogs with comments like

    "HI this great blog post I like blog post like this cool like my site visit my site KEYWORD. "

    I am thinking there are probably more and once they index im going to drop even more ranks. Stupid that googles algorithm allows you to do negative seo so easily on relatively new sites but thats whats happening.

    Does anyone have any advice as to what I can do here. I tried the dissavow tool for about 30 of the reffering domains that i found in webmaster tools but seems majestic found much more. Are the ones in webmaster tools more current then majesting?

    Thanks everyone for any help, greatly appreciated!!

    Vlad

    Disavow the bad links (at domain level) and you should hopefully bounce back.

    Disavow as well as build some clean links. I'm ranking #1 now for keywords a competitor tried to penguinize my site for, the dumb fuck is probably really pissed off now haha... cracks me up how much I turned the tables on this fucker, that's what happens when you act like a cunt I guess. If your site is decent try to get some trustworthy links off lifehack, wikipedia, etc which I suspect might help you avoid penalties in the future.
