    I don't know what's wrong. Maybe I haven't build new links for more than a month. Just saw a massive drop in ranking. But is it possible for such a drop? Or it might be some kind of penalty? This is my first time having such experience.

    Check the search console/WMT for a manual action, the drops kinds look like one.

    OP: You need to check your links in Majestic/SemRush/Moz and make sure you haven't been getting blasted with spam from a competitor. Negative attacks are typically unsuccessful, but if your site is of a low enough authority it could be vulnerable.

    Yep, but for a negative SEO attack to be successful we'd need a Penguin update...there hasn't been one for a long time and nothing hints to one rolling at the moment. I still see all those chinese guys directly blasting the shit out of their sites rank pretty well at the moment.

    Mind sharing what your backlink profile looks like? it's possible you got a penalty

    i saw massive ranking drop for one of my site 3 days back. It was ranking on 1st page 7th position for main keyword and now it is gone.
    I dont know whether it was algo update or something else.

    Have you done anything new/different in your backlink building process? Did you not post content for awhile? Change your on-site?
