    Ok.. So curious if anyone can help me figure out what the hell is going on...
    Been ranking fine for a long time over year 1st page most terms. Our site is 500+ pages no thin content all pages 2000+ words unique written content not spun, crap tons of comments, huge social presence great on page seo, very clean code, site load times 1-2 seconds, no paid links, no pbn, no comment spam, all natural linking. We were ranking fine and forwarded a domain to the site... realized that the domain we forwarded that was semi related also had another domain forwarded to the domain we forwarded that had thousands of links... also all natural linking but not related. Realized the mistake 1 week ago after leaving it for 3 weeks, caught the problem in GWT after thousands and thousands of links started to show and immediately removed the 301 about a week ago realizing the mistake. Now our traffic and ranking we had prior to the 301 even being done are horrible, lost all rankings on every single page. We have no manual penalty all on the up and up, we even do link audits monthly updating our disavow list in case anything creepy shows up. Is there something we are missing, what do you think? Time to recover, should we do anything else that you can think of or is it just give it time? This site makes very good money and now is not making shit. lol

    Find another domain and 301 it. That should boost you back up.

    Maybe it's too white hat LOL?

    But seriously, have you seen what sites ranks lately? The big ones who buy millions in Adwords. Google is looking like Overture back when you paid to rank there.

    Funny that you say that... the sites ranking now where we used to be are all big brands Break BroBible etc... with very very thin content pages (like a pic and a sentence) and pop up ads like (ads above the fold)crazy and of course a mix in of straight new spammed sites. Basically all the things Google says to try and not do the sites are doing and ranking like crazy... Too funny. I hope it is just a matter of time... I was thinking maybe we got dinged for getting a ton of links to fast and then losing all those links once we removed the incorrect 301... I hope the shit goes back to the way it was before we did all that as we were ranking just fine before all this mix up.
