    ranking from top 3 to N/A

    use "domainname" as keyword to search, my site is now at #8, and it was #1 for sure.

    so did my site get a manual action right?

    there could be lots of reasons why your site has dropped.

    yes algo penalty may be a possibility

    but it may also be previous links built have lost their effectiveness (dropped PA/PR), de-indexed and a variety of other reasons.

    you just need to be patient and hold out for a couple of weeks to see what happens to the SERPS. if you continue to drop then you are most likely penalised (easily apparent once you add your site to webmaster tools - you will get a message)

    It might be a Google dance, conduct a link audit on your site and check if there is any spam links. Be aware when you opt for back links from blog posts or guest posts, check the quality of site and its content relevancy. Quality back links will give you better results for a long term and keep creating quality links.

    Doesn't matter now since you won't get a message afterwards, but don't use it.

    If you search the domain and it's not #1 it's a penalty, period.
