    Dear all blackhatters

    I need help after getting a google slap. I do not know when it was, only that It have happend in 2013.
    I used to be in number #1 position for many keywords (easy keywords), but now my site is on 3 to 20 page for the same keywords.

    I have payed for help many times, but every time I get that I need more links. People try to sell me more and more links which I believe that I dont need.

    Today I have about 2000 links to my page and my competitors have 20 to 200 links. So I don't need more links, I need to find what hit me and remove it (or whatever I need to do to get back from this slap). I don't know if its penguin or panda or something else, so I need someone that have the ability to check the history and find out when it was and what it was that made me loose all my rankings.

    At the same point I believe that since I have 80% foreign language links (foreign language in this case being english), that may also affect my bad ranking.

    Any suggestions?
    I have also posted this in the job section for people that think they can help.

    I would hit up G-webmaster and delete these links ASAP.

    Or as more severe remedy you can redirect the old website to a new one setup the same. (I have done this before in bad situations but it works when you become pushed up against the wall with no fight left)

    would you be willing to give me full access to WMT in order to see what you're dealing with and maybe buy some links from me ?

    I'm joking :)

    In this situation I suggest you invest into a good piece of content, a video infographic for example ... it's expensive as fuck but it will draw the organic shares you need to get your site back up and also leave you with a nice piece of content that draws awareness to your public/target audience :)

    Since it's not a full nor targeted manual penalty, the links sellers you've dealt with are right. More links will push you back up but seeing how you have thousands of links and you're suspecting pengu/panda it means you've also lost a good chunk of your link profile in the updates (I'm guessing ~30% of links) which only means you'll have to add thousands of links back to your link profile :)

    You must be thinking "but my competitors only have 200 links" ... well maybe it is so but they have 200 good links and you have ~ 10.000 bad ones... adding 2-5 powerful links won't do jack for you :) ... It's a game of numbers and you're loosing it with the best hand ingame
