    Hey guys,

    Just wanna ask how long did it took you all to recover from an accidental massive backlink blast?
    I have a site that was ranking first for several competitive keyword... profits were awesome but one of the keyword's ranking was falling behind gradually.

    Feeling worried, I did a wiki blast with heavily-spun article with minimal footprints left behind - about 6500 posted wiki backlinks.
    That's a huge mistake though... I never expect most of them to get indexed so quickly.

    Now my site's keywords was pushed all the way back to 400-500 positions.
    how long does it take to recover back to my position again?
    My profits are heavily hit by this! Big lesson learnt!

    diversify your backlinks! now dilute those wikis by introducing your money site directly with blogs and profiles :)

    Like the above poster said, dilute and add variety, with links and anchors, just mix it up a little. Could just be a dance if this is pretty recent, you may recover given a bit of time. Needless to say though a blast of wikis, comments, profiles etc isnt the answer when a term is already ranking fairly high already... think quality over quantity
