    After i write a article i usually go to google webmaster tools and go to "explore like google" to send manually the new article.
    But i press the button without put the url... and i send to the index my main URL (example www. xxxxxx.com)
    I was in 13th place in google...and now im not in the top500...
    I think is becouse i went sent to the end of the list... what do you think?

    That has nothing to do with it. Your site tanked for other reasons. If you just build new links, it could be a dance, or if your site is new then you may have lost your temporary rank boost that new websites tend to get and you have to actually start building links to rank high.

    yea man.. don't sweat it too much. there is no single button you can press that will make your site tank instantly Hahah.

    Even robots = no won't do that so fast. Just keep adding content + building links...your rank will be fine.

    just like adam said, if your site is new the rankings should be back to normal

    When I read the OP, I was wondering when did this button come because I have never heard of anything till date. There's nothing as such, so you need not worry about it. However, I think you should unearthen other possible reasons for such an occurence.

    So wait it out. What you did in Webmaster tools didn't affect your site. 5 month old websites can be penalized just as easily as a 5 day old website.

    Possibly something wrong happened because of link building? Have you bought/used automated link building technique?

    Dude, you pressed the "go to the last page on google" button, just take the tick off, and you'll get back to the front page.:chairfall
