    Is your site new? May be its just a dance. Keep building links and don't stop link building.

    If you blasted your site recently, then have you found your source.

    How many links did you blast?

    While Google is supposed to release another 'larger' algo update to Panda, I haven't seen any true signs of it yet.

    Chances are its from your Xrumer blast and the links have dropped of, become deindexed, your accounts banned, etc.

    I'd recommend continuing to link build your site, especially internal pages. Be sure to target a variety of keywords to diversify incoming anchor text as well.

    before doing anything ---- wait.

    The same thing happened to my site on april 30. From page 1 it was no where in search results. It happened as by mistake i forgot to change the link colors from White to blue. I am not sure bout it seems to be the reason. So, i thought i was penalized and i started a new website, and removed all content from the site. I missed removing content from one of two pages.

    So, after so many days I checked again, and my site is on the first page again ( only with one page) :( . Now I have already worked so much on the new site, it feel like stupid :(


    So, my sugestion ... Post your problem in google webmaster forum. There some expert will definitely tell you the reason why your site went down. And then wait for 1-2 months, It might be just google dance and you site might come up again in 1-2 months.

    Draw attention to your site by posting it on Google's Webmaster forum is your solution? No offense, but that's a pretty dumb idea. Especially considering the guy has Xrumer blasts in his link profile.

    He can get plenty of thoughtful and experienced answers on here, then from the Matt Cutts troll team.

    forget xrumer... at least directely on your site.

    I am not an expert but I can tell you this. Build good backlinks and if your site has good content then there is no way that big G will sandbox it...

    Keep building links maybe its just google dance.

    I don't know if they are doing another major update. Stupid SEO blogs like to make stuff up to get traffic.

    I do know that Google loves unique content and a good amount of it. Make sure that you have a good number of posts and even go in and promote 1 or 2 of those posts.

    Continue building links at a steady rate. Stopping to build links is the worst mistake you can make.

    Same thing happened with me, I was on first page for some keywords, now I'm nowhere to be found. I just did 10-20 web2.0 blasts using Senuke, it's so weird. I haven't even done extreme backlinking....

    The only thing I did do was to start getting a lot of web2.0 backlinks indexed because of my private blog network...so I HOPE it's just a google dance...

    1 to 500 on a 2 years old site? Sounds more like a penalty than sandbox.

    Same thing happened to me, my site tanked on June 7, was on 1st page for a few keywords but tanked to 100+.

    My site is fairly new, like registered in April, has 20-25 pages of UNIQUE content and I don't do funny stuff like blast etc, been outsourcing link building though.

    So what should I do? Wait and hope for the best, or it's most likely will be dead for like 6 months?
