    My main keywords droped from 2nd to 200+ position.

    I suspect anchor over optimization :(

    No, haven't noticed anything.
    I have dozens of sites that use one keyword when ranking and never had a problem.

    I think this is something bigger than anchor text over optimization...

    Too many people are complaining about something happening to their site between February 16th to the 20th...

    It could of been an algo update and we could hear about it later this month or beginning of next month in a press release...

    Some people are saying it has something to do with BMR, but I had less than 1% of my links in BMR so I don't think this is entirely true, but if if some of my links were recognized by google, then maybe I have a short penalty...at least this is my best wish!...ha..
