    WTF????? For months I have been on the first page of google for one of my sites with a exact match domain. Nothing Black hat has been done, all white hat link building, in fact very little link building has been done over the past couple of weeks. The only thing i've changed is I added new fresh content the other day. It has been ranking #4 for this phrase for a good month, now this morning it is ranked #497?????? WTF Big G what could i have done to offend you????

    If you have a google webmasters account look into it to see if you dont have any baclinks from bad neighborhoods(porn gambling warez)
    did you change the content or add some more
    what is your keyword density
    do you have any broken code or hidden link on your site?

    Check the websites you are linking to. I had a major problem with one of my websites droping from 3rd place to page 60+ and I spent days wondering what was the problem. When I checked the websites of the CPA offer I was promoting I saw it had severe penalty. It wasn't even in the google index. So remove all affiliate links and all links and wait a few days. If you come back then it is google doesn't like the offer you are promoting.

    I'm starting to think it's dancing, as it's back on the first page of google, ranked #9, so maybe tommorow it will be back to where it was or better :)

    ok yah no dancing cause it's been on like the 43rd page or somthing like that. I'm not even running any CPA offers or anything like that, only Adsense ads. maybe i'm linking to one of the sites that got hit with the recent Algo update. maybe it's just taken this long to work it self out. Back to the drawing board!

    UPDATE: Well after about 13 days, my site came back to the 1st page. Not to it's postion before it dropped, but back to the 1st page none the less. That lasted for about 2 weeks until it crashed again. Right now it's sitting some where in the neighborhood of 500-600. Now the thing that really kills me is is a autoblog is ranked in my old spot on the 1st page! This is also happening to a few other of my sites. I thought this new algo update was going to stop the autoblogs, not improve them!! I wonder if Micro Niche sites are still worth it. Cause from i'm seeing is that super original content gets replaced by Crappy auto blogs. Good Job Big G!!

    google has been talking about devaluing exact match domain names for some time now...maybe you were on of the first to get a really stiff penalty...

    If this was true it would explain why 4 out of my 30 Micro Niche Sites have been hit like this.

    How many other sites do you have on the same server? Google penalizes sites for specific reasons.... and as you said there was no reason for your site to be penalized... so according to me the server is penalized because of other sites... and your site also got killed.... This happened to me also....

    I had 5 sites on a server.. two or three were a bit spammy all the five sites were on the first page..... One by one four of them got deindexed bo G I immediately moved my fifth site to another server and I was right...My fifth site escaped... I think this might be the issue....

    I am doing concentrate on high keyword ranking. I see my keyword ranking is on 1st page, only on google (within in country) and after than it gone from the 100th position. So may be it depends on your keyword competitors. However this is not my main keyword, but trying to keep this keyword on 1st ranking.

    I don't think that the keyword competition makes such a huge difference.... kenword competition can push you back to a page or two but not to 497th.... this is certainly something bigger than keyword competition.

    All of my sites are indeed hosted with one reseller account, but i have 30 Micro niche sites with a few pages of content, and other sites with multiple pages. It's only been 4 of my micro niche sites that have been hit. Everything else is doing fine. Their not all on the Same ip or anything like that. Something is up that's for sure.
