    So for the last 5 months I have been building links for this one website, and it starts to rank well but within the last 3 days a lot of my rankings fell.

    Here is what i think happened:

    1. I did a forum blast...which was like 300 links...which doesn't make sense because it is such a small amount but hey, FML, this could have been it.

    2. Im using images from google, perhaps they found them to be copyrighted and deranked me for having such material.

    3. I have a plugin on my site that auto updates amazon post into my site. This also means grabbing the summary...which could be like copy and paste from another site. Im sure google hates that as well.

    **sidenote: the keyword that use to rank about 3-8 for my main website seems to not be ranking 60+ for a page on my website...

    If anyone can help me get back into the rankings, or give me clues on how my site could have just dropped.

    THANKS!

    Oh and I use all whitehat methods so....

    Give it some time it will rebound just a normal reset unless they penalized you.

    This is typical - called Google Dance. Keeb building the links and you'll get your ranks back.
    All your reasons are not valid. You won't get slapped like that by the big G. :)

    even the forum blast?

    I wouldn't have done that directly to the money site...

    Any messages in webmaster tools? If not, then it's probably just dancin'
