    Okay, so maybe the headline was a little dramatic, but is anyone else besides SAPE users experiencing havoc in SERPS today?

    I have been getting Serpbook alert emails literally every few minutes with my sites dropping dramatically (sape and non sape).

    What's going on today?

    I don't add my sites to GWMT because i don't trust them with any more than they need to know so I'm not sure if i have been slapped on all of them ( i don't see how... i have dozens of sites).

    Is anyone else feeling the quake?

    Yes, I see the exact same thing. Huge drops in the SERPs this morning for sites using SAPE links.

    Since my last post even further of my sites have started moving down the SERPS.

    This is why I stuck to smaller private networks, none of my SERPs had any negative impact today.

    Just pack up, move on, and purchase some new SAPE links in the near future once the dust settles.

    Amen! Always have backup sites. These updates seem to only affect sites from a certain date going backwards. Anything moving forward will be fair game.

    Churn and burn, rank and bank! Same old same old - this is the mentality anyone using russian links should have, Googles been doing this shit since January this year and its the same old story after a few weeks and mayhem on the forums shit settles down, sape is growing all the time how can they take down a network that is constantly growing? The only way would be to totally devalue footer links...

    For the sites got slapped, did you guys build sape link directly to your money sites, or build them to tier 1's ??

    For anyone who used SAPE on their main money sites, the question I ask is why? Were you expecting something else to happen?

    I have SAPE sites that got hit too, but these sites were thrown up in a few hours, and I didn't invest much time into them. They made back more than their money's worth and it was just a countdown before they would get hit. I'm still debating if I should continue churn and burning or just wait this whole thing out.

    Churn and burn is not really my style, but every update google launches, they make it the more profitable route. I only started this model when google decided to reward crappy sites over clean sites.

    Sorry to those whose real sites got hit, but you guys should have known the risks of using it on your real sites. At least you made profit from it right? Just throw up another one and profit from it too.
