    hello everyone i am new to seo i made two sites, around 2 months ago and i read on the forum that web 2.0's are a good source of backlinks so i made 30 of these and managed to get these to page 2 and after reading a case study here from a guy that was ranking with tumblr backlinks i decided to buy some accounts for tumblr and as you can see in the screenshots the rankings started to drop after i added these so if anyone who is more experienced than me tell if it's a google dance or a penalty? untitled.jpg untitled1.jpg also these keywords are low competition.

    Google dance died in 2003, so it's a penalty I assume

    Looks like the dance to me, but whereas your rank dropped off so markedly around the 5th - it would be worth looking to see if G told you why this happened with some messages in your webmasters tools. I would definitely check there because there could easily be some other explanation for your lost/dancing rank.

    Definitely its a google dance and its still exists. Don't worry, you haven't got penalty, maybe penguin update just realised your exploit so it got bounce for 3-5 days. It will be ok within 1 week

    Without knowing exactly what you did and where you got your backlinks no one can tell you for certain whether its the Google dance or a penalty. We can only surmise.
