    I recently created a thread stating that I got downranked and couldn't find the exact cause to it. I spoke to a few members via pm and some had got the exact backlink package as me.

    If you have lost your rankings this month please state if you purchased a link package from bhw and which one.

    Any extra information about what happened will also be helpful.

    Thanks

    There are some ranking fluctuations due to recent update. Rankings will be settled down if your site having good authority.

    Its been a big month, but I've seen upwards movement mostly. And before anyone asks, no... there was no Penguin update.

    I'm still having big fluctuations on a couple of my sites.

    One day they go out of SERPs and the other day they come back with better rankings.

    lose rankings for 3 to 5 page's 3 to 5 days after start link building ,

    targeted keywords(LSI) ranked very well but for main keywords lose rankings for 3 to 5 page's.

    Almost all of my rankings went up from 5th page to 3rd-2nd page. So I've gone up for most but some of them disappeared from the SERPs.

    I haven't lost rankings, in fact my newish authority site build has actually gained authority, and Google indexes posts within minutes of posting.
    The only backlinks were manual do-follow blog comments(about 30 total).
    I had purchased a few web 2.0 packages here for the site(manually written, multi-page) and Google is showing those as well.(about 20 in total showing, 40 total built). I haven't built any backlinks to the web2.0s yet, but am planning on a cheap PBN blast and GSA blast.


    I have 2 niche sites that I have used packages purchased here on BHW for, but they haven't lost any ranking, and barely any gain either.
    Even my site that I have pointed some fiverr packages(testing purposes) at, haven't lost rankings.

    I am heavy on using my brand name, naked URLs, and LSIs for my link text, I rarely use the keywords my page/site targets(like 5% MAX, if at all).
    Also when I build links, I usually start with some social signals(start a day or 2 before I build/buy links), and continue it for a few days after. I try to use a ratio over 10x my links, so if I buy 10 web2.0s, I aim for 100-200 social signals, makes it look real, not viral.

    Just my method, which seems to have kept me safe.

    My main keyword fell from position 5 to 14 this few days ago. The site was sitting stable at position 5 for two years

    You're wrong, they're 100% testing Penguin in European countries. No other algorithm update causes sites to drop -90, and others to increase +70. Quit listening to the clowns at Google, this is Penguin being tested.
