Hello everybody. I have been running succesfully my own 30 domains promoting local statewide services for more than 5 years. I was really happy, it was working really well. I was trying several whitehat and blackhat methods, always one with one domain only. Some domains were raising up their positions, other were going down, some were banned. But I had so many domains that I was able to experiment with new methods as always some of my domains were well placed on top positions for important keywords. On e day I have decided to promote a new service so I have created one subdomain promoting it on every domain. In order to have it indexed faster, I have created one "links" page on every domain (30) and every subdomain (60 in total) containing a full set of links to all created subdomains (30). Just next day I had a serious car accident and I spent two weeks in the hospital. When I came back, all my domains have disappeared from their top positions. I have removed immediately all lthe links pages, I have removed all subdomains too. But it was to late. I did not have the possibility to act earlier as I was in the hospital... Two months later all my domains are still placed on 5-9 Google pages for the keywords for which they were placed on top1 or very close to the top. All of them. I presume I was not banned as all my domains are still there. Probably I was red flagged. So I have some questions: 1. How long any website remains red flagged? I understand that we are speaking about some weeks but not months... 2. Is it possible that Google is multiplying red flag penalty per quantity of websites (for instance 4 weeks per 30 domains, or even 30 domains + 30 subdomains? 3. Will I have the possibility of returning to my previous positions when my penalty will be over? 4. Will it make any sense to try to promote any new subdomains added to the punished domain or simply I have to forgot it and start buying brand new domains? 5. Does it make any sense to keep promoting those websites? 6. Do any of you had this kind of experience and which were its consecuences for you? 7. Do you have any good advice for my? Your opinions will be highly appreciated.
