    Sorry to hear that, man! Any idea what could've caused it? Any recent blasts?

    maybe it was the PR update or you did too much backlinking?

    i never blast directly to my site although i did a small xrumer blast directly a few months ago.i noticed that the xrumer profile links were beginning to index than bam this shit happened.

    but my other site which i never do any profile links on also got hit.so i dont know whats the cause.

    Same problem here.

    Have a site which I was sitting at 6,7 & 8 on Google for my main keyword. Was settled there for ages.

    Checked a few days ago and now it is at 576,577 & 578!

    I am really hoping I can get it back up near the top again.

    These things are nearly always temporary. Focus on some higher quality links and social signals and you should see your site back in no time.

    Guys, maybe check a thread on blasting crap out of website with ScrapeBox - I've used it and it seems to be working after about a week or so. The fellow says he got his websites out of sandbox that way, but I'd wait to see if it's not just a G dance.

    If you used xrumer, scrapebox, blog comments, link exchanges, etc. for backlinks then you just got hit by google's new algorithm update which happened today.

    Social bookmarks are the only effective link building strategies now.

    As a forum of scrapebox users, if this was the case I think we'd have heard more about it by now. Mass hysteria even.

    Oh thats a huge bugger... Maybe you didn't hide your tracks properly? I would recommend you do some whitehat link building for a while to get back to your top position, I'm not exactly sure if continuing to xRumer your site would make your rankings drop further or increase (I know Google looks at the regularity of links being built to your site though).

    Myself I havn't noticed any drops at all (for my main keyword anyway). Just checked my positions on the .com and .co.nz versions of Google and have actually improved somewhat (which is strange as I've been doing other things that building links to my site). My Keyword is "web developers" (without quote marks), and for Google.co.nz I rank 3rd out of about 547,000,000, and for Google.com I rank 9th out of about 571,000,000. I also checked in the Adwords Keyword Tool and the term "web developers" (without quote marks) gets around 301,000 global searches a month (I got this by having "locations" set to "all" and "languages" to "english".

    Google.co.nz:
    Code:

    Hey BobbyLove,

    So does social bookmarking remain the only effective link building strategies even if the backlinks are nofollowed? I still get a bit of traffic from sites like Facebook and Twitter etc so it does not really worry me, I just wanted to know thats all :).

    You need MASSIVE social bookmarking (1k+) in order to rank on the first page.

    There are a few services that do this, and one of them with really good reviews is:

    Code:
    Social Bookmarking Bomb

    The only common thing that i did was to blast some linkpushes with scrapebox.Im not sure if that is the cause.Hopefully its a dance.I will give it a few weeks and see how it goes.
