Hey guys, I have a dilemma. I received the dreaded e-mail on a site of mine in September. The site was ranking a lot of kw's. Since then I've sent a few reconsideration requests with links that I thought were to blame for that certain penalty. As usual/expected, I received the reply: "You still have unnatural links", go figure. The funny thing is, with all this going on, I lost about 10-20% of the rankings, the money kw's have not shifted in the SERP's, still stable and reliable. Has anyone encountered this issue before or in the last couple of months? Usually when I got that e-mail, it was quickly followed by an utterly and final disappearance of the site from the SERP's. Has anyone been penalized but not be really penalized by the big G? Has Google add layers/levels to the extent of their penalty and the damage you're supposed to take? Would really need some opinions on this. I'm really baffled. Best regards, UrS.
