    Hello

    My site was ranking in top 10 on all of the realated keywords. It was 2 month old site (now 3 months old) and it got penalty i think. I think its a penalty because all the rankings gone top10 to 50-60.

    There is nothing in my google webmaster tool.
    My site decreased when i bought sape to my tiers. I canceled all the sape links orders.

    How can i solve it ? What to do now ?

    Thanks

    It could be a Google dance so I'd advise you to wait for a few days or a week to see if your rankings will return.

    As SEO Power said, it could be a fluctuation due to the new links, wait it out for a week or 2, see how the rankings progress.

    If the site doesn't return, it's 100% a penguin penalty so you should either:
    - redirect the domain to a new one, same niche similar contet and hope that it doesn't pass penalty (20% chances of that happening)
    - start a link detox and hope your site bounces back (it's hit and miss, low chances of recovery)

    It was a two month old site? Your ranking was due to "freshness" to the market, it might've finally just settled in. But who knows, there's plenty of G-Myths. You can wait a little bit longer and see if it starts to move again or start working on a backup. Maybe both at the same time.


    Good luck.
