    One of my clients is on a VERY SMALL town in a micro niche. Lots of small competition and only one does any SEO.

    Built by stuff semi quick. Got a google slap. Not sandboxed, no deindex. just busted back to the 10th page. Built citations and got google places in order. After 1 week. Back to first page goodness and enjoying a nice google places spot .

    I stopped the seo because I easily crushed all others (3/1) in links, pr, directories, press releases, on page seo optiomization, etc. and did not want to risk a slap.

    But today after a month, the big G slapped me... WTF? Is she on her period! I did nothing but ping my old articles a couple of days ago.

    Did anyone else get slapped today?

    On a side note, I did hear that some people were pissed due to our new found success. Nobody could of caused this could they???

    Thank God I did some deep linking as my main link is on page 6 but my deep links are keeping me page 3...

    This is always my favorite thing to read in forums. Like you are assuming there is a chance Google just changed their entire algorithm or penalized millions of sites. It was just you, nobody else. If anyone else did get lowered in the rankings it was purely coincidental, and unrelated to you getting lowered.

    In my opinion, you need to relax, and just let google figure our your site. Keep building links, or don't, but don't get so worked up. If its a local listing, I am assuming its a long term business project, so give it the time it deserves. It may take 6 months to 1 year but the placement should come eventually.

    If you know 99.9% of your competition is not doing any seo of any kind. Why can't you just stop. The advice seems to be to keep building links.

    It's hard to swallow that this is a never ending process when all the competition is sitting on their bums...

    :eek:

    As I said, if you want to keep building links, do it. If you don't want to, then stop. Google will still rise you in the ranks even if you don't build links every day. You never have to build another link ever, and I guarantee you will rise in the rankings. Don't listen to other people who say you need to keep building links, its false. Google is just taking its time.

    Do you still have a GP listing? If you are in GP AND if you had an organic listing as well, they probably just merged the two... maybe not a slap at all???

    Hey mike,

    Good to see you again. My google places rank dropped from place 3 to place 65.

    Additionally, when I see my listing in places, the verbiage under my name completely gone!

    It has my name, website, pic, phone. But no paragragh between the name and site link.....

    WTF?

    hmmm... no answers here, I'm sorry to say. I don't think anyone else caused it... it takes a heck of a lot of work (time) to do negative SEO and half the time it backfires anyway!!!

    Hopefully it will bounce right back again... unless you're at the start of a new Google tactic somehow!

    One thing I forgot to mention is that my listing used to have categories and more info fields like

    "chicago il donuts | Chicago Illinois donuts"
    "Donuts Chicago Il | Donuts Chicago"

    This was completely keyword spammy so I changed it about 4 days ago cause I figured google would hit me with a penalty.

    It now has normal categories and the more details has info in the form of

    "Do you cater the donuts in the chicago illinois area? - (answer) yes, we cater our donuts to all of chicago.

    Sure hope this didn't F things up...

    Okay guys so check this shit out.... GOOGLE IS SO MIND F**KING ME!!!

    So I am in the middle of a google slap. My google places got busted to position 65 and my site title verbiage is gone.

    I set up a secondary site a few months ago, new name - keyword rich - on godaddy's website tonight. 1 page with a few keywords and a link to my money site. I placed it in google places and let it sit as this was a one day when I was bored project I would pimp it for real.

    The day I got slapped this POS site is now on FIRST PAGE google places for most of my the main keywords.

    WHAT THE HELL IS THE BIG G DOING?

    NO SEO
    NO CItations
    NO DIRECTORIES
    NO PRESS RELEASES
    NO SOCIAL MEDIA

    DRUGS R BAD MMMMMKKAAAYYYYYYYY
