    Start over again if Blackhat techniques are involved.

    your site will get back, at least a bit, but it takes time, so my experience with the last update.
    I suggest: make a similar page - but white hat - however it is possible for you!!

    also be patient 2-3 weeks with that pain in the A** :bad:

    Your best bet is to either remove the website entirely and start again by transferring over posts to a new website, while working on higher quality links, instead of the usual shit, or, leave the website there, and make a new website while waiting for your rankings to return - which could take from several months until never. But since it's likely that either way you'll be starting a new site, leaving it there wouldn't hurt - unless you have to pay for it monthly.

    What about 2-3 pages drop? It's different from 1to 300 situation?

    You can go for reputation management services which costs similar to seo services. But it will take time to get back the website and no body would give their word for it.
    But if you are tight on the money, I would suggest you to start over again.
    Also I would tell you to do a through domain history check and do not pick up an already penguin or panda penalized domain name.
    Good Luck.

    Wether you'll choose to clean up your website or transfer to new domain, you'll have to invest time in it. And the second option is probably better anyway, because fixing it all up doesn't guarantee success.

    Start over and build quality content driven links this time. There is not really an way around it most of the time. Good luck!

    Wait it out....they're still moving the SERPs in order to catch spammers who react. Stay put and let it pass, soon it'll stabilize and only then should you decide anything.

    Depends on a lot of variables.

    If you were making money and its a real "business" then you need to fix it.

    If it's a throwaway site move onto the next domain.

    What he says.

    I dropped lots of sites (didn't renew them). Even some that were 10 years old (for real) but they were porn domains so...
    Got hit hard here. Pi$$es me off sooooooooo much like you wouldn't believe.
    Nothing blackhat too (go figure)
    I'm lost here...

    wait because there will be new programs to save your site from this update if you have not deleted the site yet.

    Keep your site that got hit and make a new site while you wait it out. The serps are changing daily it seems so I don't think the update is over yet.
