    circled my main keywords

    I made a niche website from some keywords and a brand new emd i bought on here.. made some easy links and left it a couple of weeks. the main keywords were sitting nicely at around 20..

    few days ago i went beserk with tumblrs.. i bought 3 gigs on fiverr and spent a whole night making 100 tumblrs for the site. I gave them all a healthy mix of anchors and surrounded them with relevant sentences.
    i then indexed them all in google url submitter :sad:

    All a learning process i suppose. i won't do it again

    All seem well before the "going berserk" part.

    Maybe 100 is a bit too much. Were they expired tumblrs or new?

    I'm using 4 expired tumblrs and 2 more as a tier 2 to the tier 1 expired tumblrs, seem to be ok, but I'm using wordpress, yolasite, blog and jigsy for variety of ip address with web 2.0s.

    You index all 100 links in 1 day? RIP.

    The keywords could bounce back up after some time tho as long as your anchor text ratios are not messed up.

    How long has it been since you made those 4 Tumblrs? A common thing to happen after link building is to see your rankings drop and shoot back up. Dropping 30 spots isnt all that crazy and if it was deindexed it would be no where to be found.

    I would a minimum of 1 week before panicking.

    Tumblr is a very popular site and has been for years, your links where probably indexed/crawled within a few minuets to hours after you posted ed them. Google is much smarter than that. They understand things like unnatural link building, it was probably increased because of the sites popularity. You could also been hit for to many links coming from the same sites and blogs. Or you should wait a week and see if they come back. When building links you will see your SERP fluctuate.

    Dear, how about start from "what is your goal?"
    I understand you tried to do some magic, but what is the purpose? To kick URL into index? how long can you stay there? something else, I guess

    you have been agressive, you should have scheduled the links during a period of time

    Maybe this is what tanked you, you think? :p

    Sorry for the loss bro, it sucks having to start over from scratch. But if want something bad enough, no loss or obstacle will stand in your way

    lol. You made 100 tumblr links with heavy anchors and then went to index all of them instantly... This was bound to happen.

    I wouldn't say that it is too many, it is not like they tanked your site. You are bouncing as you've built backlinks. Continue building more links consistently and you'll come back up stronger than before. It is not like you've went completely out of SERPs, 3 pages is not "tanking". Keep it going with more diversification of backlinks and you'll be fine :)

    Most people are scared to death by Google unfortunately. :(

    It is a normal curve to go down in ranking before you go up even more than your prior rankings :)

    I said RIP like WTF are you doing indexing 100 links in 1 day. Not RIP as in the site is dead. I know the site isn't dead.

    Google might put a hold on your rankings now that you have a bunch of links at one time but as long as your anchors are fine you will eventually benefit from the links.

    Next time drip feed the links and you will see less volatile movement and quicker ranking.

    Im far from scared of google.

    Just give it time.

    I've had tumblr posts get popular and then you can get 100s of links very quickly. One of my sites is ranking very well with thousands of tumblr links (> 95% of all links to the site). They're genuine re-blog links though, so that may be slightly different.

    Forget about this site for about a month. And then, start creating links slowly.
