Over the past couple weeks I purchased an Xrumer blast service for an established site. Over these past two weeks we've seen a MASSIVE drop in our search engine rankings across the board on ALL keywords. Without naming precisely the keywords and domain names, here are some examples of the drops we've experienced: - A #1 position dropped to #14 position (we had been number 1 for months). - A #3 position dropped to #20 position. - A #4 position dropped to #23 position. - A #12 position dropped to #37 position (highly competitive, most valuable keyword). - A #10 position dropped to #18 position. The keywords are dropping further by the day. Yahoo and Bing results remain largely unaffected, in fact, our ranking for some keywords has improved. We avoided all of the usual pitfalls with our Xrumer blasts--we blasted on a wide variety of keywords under a mix of our home page and inner pages. Has anyone else here had a similar experience with Xrumer blasts? It seems to us based on recent posts on BHW that Xrumer is no longer a viable means of improving SERPs--Google has clearly caught on and penalizes websites for Xrumer blasts. For anyone who has experienced this sort of penalization--did your SERPs recover over time?
