    Hello world,
    So here is my story : I'm ranking one of my website since 2 months from now, I was ranked #12 so I recently bought 24 blog posts to boost my ranks, and It worked. I has been #8 in first page for few hours and BOUM, my links dropped to #50... I was wondering if it's a normal google dance, or a google penalty? If it's a google dance, how much time do I have to wait so I can rank again ? I know there is nothing sure in this business, but I just need informations from you guys experiences.

    Did you do anything that could incur a penalty?

    That depends upon the quality of blogs that you bought Indeed.

    If more than 4 of them used your money term then you most likely just over did the densities.

    If you had no new links before and then directly 24 blog posts, then its definetly a penalty. But you need to wait a few days before you can be sure.

    Normally if it is a google dance then you will see movement in rankings after few days. Wait for 1 week and see the changes. If rankings not improvement then remove the links to your main keyword from these 24 posts. Suppose if you recover the rankings to earlier point then start adding links slowly to boost your rank. Sometimes sites can't withstand more powerful links at a time.

    This is my observation after testing on few sites. Hope this info will be helpful.

    If you haven't recovered your rankings by now, its probably a penalty.

    I don't get why you say this? His rankings only dropped for a few hours. Google dance can jump all over the place for quite a few days before it stays stable and ranks higher.

    Rankings measured over a period of hours are not rankings at all - they're tentative fluctuations.

    Look at weekly rankings for a clear picture.

    Wait for weeks.. So you will know if it's penalty or google dance.

    Well as for my experience, I have 11 PBN domains and for my stupidness I post the articles one time on those 11 PBN..
    And boom my website is nowhere to be found.

    But for you I guess it's just a google dance..
