    For the passed 2 months, my site was landing on page 1 for my targeted keywords, and page 2, for many others.

    I first built 5-10 pr 6-8 links
    then 25-40 pr 4-8 links
    then 100-200 pr 2-8 links

    Also senuked many articles/blogs/forums over the course of a couple of months.

    I had extremely high SERP, up until early this week (2/2/12), When i now notice that my site is not even in the top 400 results for ANY of my keywords.

    Did Google panda roll out some brand new changes?
    I read that they may have implemented a more "dynamic" and "interactive" algorithm. I also read that Google was now taking "adds above the fold" as a serious offense.

    Can anybody shed some light on to this issue?
    Am i sand boxed? Are my competitors that fast to down me? ETC.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    what a helpful response.


    how old is your site? have you steadily been building the links you mentioned to it? do you have a bunch of above the fold ads?

    i would guess you are just dancing and just give it some time. although jumping past 400 is quite a bit for a dance. id say give it a little more time and keep building links to it regardless

    I appreciate your help, and hopefuly, I will beat these google bastards ;p....

    Yes, I have built the links to look very organic, and have only blasted links 3-4 times.


    Oddly enough, i have 0 adds on my site.

    However I do have an SSL certified image linking to the ssl site. As well as a paypal verified image with link to the site.

    Maybe google is seeing these 2 items as an add.


    Also, I am using OSCOMMERCE, and from what I have been realizing is that this was not a very wise choice, as google seems to dislike the content layout.

    Anyway, I would be logical that Google are putting GOOD quality websites higher up the rankings, it could be to do with bounce rate and return visitor rate?

    Yes, i would definately agree that they would be putting good quality websites up.

    The niche i am involved with, has a lot of foreign persons competing. These foreign competitors of mine do not have the greatest english skills, and many times while using them i have become lost (this is the main reason i thought it would be a good niche to go into).

    I also noticed A LOT of older sites are now popping up for some keywords. Some of these sites are so old that they give 404 when trying to visit their home page.

    Something is not right too me. Has anybody heard of new google practices that have just recently been put into effect?

    I could really use some help on this, my income has went from somewhat decent; to barely enough to pay for things.

    If anybody happened to be in the same boat as me, wondering why the google bastards dropped my SERP, I have some updates.

    Google did roll out a few changes (nothing major, most webmasters will not see what i did), that I will not go over in too much detail, as they are minimal and easy to research.

    It is obvious to me now that Google cannot provide an update to its algorithm, and simultaneously update every webpage at once.

    I figure I got crawled before most competitors in my niche, and received a small penalty for some reason. I just had to wait for the friendly spiders at Google to crawl them; Essentially evening out the playing field once again, and voila!

    Back at #4 ! ;p

    EDIT::TLDR -- Blackhatseo still workin for me ;p

    Thank you for your help.

    I did nearly the same strategy on one of my sites. I saw it as a dance and so I continued to build good quality links. Little did I know, Google SLAMMED me with the kiss of death- a -750 penalty. It has been 4 months now, but I am back within the top 150 for about 10 of my keywords.

    I ran NHS and also submitted i think it was an article blast to my MNS in the health, it took ages to index and rank, and once it did, i popped up for my main keyword in the 700s
