    Alright, I'm so happy right now. I wanna get up and dance but I'll wake everyone up hahaha. You might have seen my thread last week about one of my sites plummeting in Google. Literally dropped 50-300 spots for ALL 50 keywords I was targeting. Pages were ranking for the wrong keywords. It was a big mess. I've had this site dance around before, but nothing like this.

    So a couple hours ago, I checked rankings, still down. I was losing hope lol.

    Just checked now, my site is back up for ALL keywords. :dance:

    Okay, I don't want this to be a useless bragging thread, so I'll tell you guys what I did since last week..which is just about nothing haha.

    I noticed I had a lot of crappy, useless pages indexed in Google (a lot of random Cpanel folders like wp-includes, etc..). So two nights ago, I fixed this, cleaned it up (fixed robots.txt file and request a directory removal through GWT). Honestly, I have NO idea if that's the reason why my site went downhill. I do know that all those crappy pages had been indexed about a week before my site went downhill. So it may very well have been because of that.

    Beautiful! I'm glad it worked out for you in the end.
    I know that feeling, almost like waking up to a winning lottery ticket.

    Congrats.

    LOL thanks :) Yeah sure thing. I'll PM it to you now.

    Hahaha thanks bro! I actually didn't do anything aside from what I mentioned (but I do have a few monthly services running on it. And I am certain the drop was not their fault).

    Thanks man :)

    Before making the request, you have to block any directories you want removed through your robots.txt file :)
