    I'm in shock, my website was ranked 7th position Google valid daily for 3 weeks straight, then I fired my SEO guy, and I checked ranking 2 days later and literally overnight, it comepletely dropped out of top 500 for my key word "beer gut"!!!! I am so upset!:confused:

    beerandbody (d o t) c o m

    Could he have sabotaged my site somehow?! I have heard that the infamous" google sandbox" is just a myth? is this real and what do I do to fix this undeserving dilemma? Can I contact Google for explanation?:(

    PLEASE, SEO experts tell me what to do....we worked so hard to get first page, is there a way of checking my status with Google and appealing?

    The real question is, what is my fired SEO expert somehow spammed millions of low-quality links automatically, would that have caused the rapid overnight descent. And if so, WHAT WOUDL PREVENT A COMPETITOR FROM DOING THE SAME THING TO DESTROY THEIR COMPETITION?!?

    How was he building links? If he was building them to a 301, he can just turn that off.
    He might have blasted you with SB also. If that's the case, hire a new SEO and you'll be back soon.

    Sorry to hear. Losses like this are devastating.
