    Hi all,
    Seen some bizarre movements last few days, and looking for some advice as to what it may be...
    Site is 2 months old, and built on wordpress. Have been carefully(ish) building links with GSA. At first I did throw social bookmarks at my site through gsa, but am only using articles, wikis, social networks, web 2.0's. Last weekend I manually removed the social bookmarks that had been created during April as I did not want them, and also added more content on my money site ( 2 blog posts and re arranged the H1 H2 headings), also at the same time I started using GSA Indexer and manually submitting some of my better backlinks to digg, as I found they index my blog post quick smart.
    My money site has been hovering around page 2 for last 2 weeks and climbing for a low comp keyword with local monthly search of 18k. Monday it dropped to page 5 and yesterday page 8 and now page 9. I hope this is due to the removing of some of the shittier links plus the new content etc that was done, or do you guys think its something else?.
    The sites that are currently top 3 on my keyword just seem to spam the shit out of their site, and I tread carefully and get no-where! Very frustrating. Oh and I dont have the one thing needed for good SEO... patience! lol

    Oliver - welcome from out under the rock you been hiding under.

    Penguin 2.0 was just rolled out 5/23/13 - welcome to it.

    Sorry bro.

    Hows your anchor text variations? Hope youre not still using many exact match anchors in your linkbuilding.

    Don't think I was hit by penguin as all the movements in my niche happened and I stayed in same position last week. So just because penguin was last week sites are not allowed to dance like normal? Anchor text is very varied, I worry to varied as again the top 3-5 sites are using very very little variation in there anchor text

    Two of my sites are still dancing\shuffling on the first page between 1st and 6th position after penguin. They were stable in #1 rank prior to Penguin though.

    Dancing is usually UP and down - you've gone nowhere but down from page 2 to page 9.

    I read your post and DANCE is not what I got out of that. But if you already know whats going on ... no need for others imput I guess.

    Penguin 2 isnt just a single day event - theyve been tweekin this bitch for the last several days.

    Good luck

    "...You notice after 2-3 months that your site rankings have Sunk. Losing the QDF bonus and Google not recognizing your low-quality backlinks hurts. Then you feel since you are now "sandboxed", you'll give up on link building and the rankings tank even further. It seems to be a never ending downward spiral..."
