    Hello!

    I was ranking on the first page for several keywords in July and suddenly, in August, every of my keyword dropped except for 4 keywords. Even then, the rankings are at the bottom 5 which makes it even harder. My number of enquiries have gone down and I didnt even make a single sale this month.

    I desperately need to get back my site up to where it was. Can anyone recommend me a service that have been proven to do so?

    Thanks!

    Did you just stopped doing SEO for your site? Chances are your competitors might have optimized their sites to make it look better than yours to Googlebot. You have to do the same thing again....
    It doesn't looks like penalty to me, coz if Google would have penalized you then your site might have been thrown out of 10+ page....

    I was doing SEO in July and purchased 3 SEO packages and I believed that what caused it to dropped. Im trying to get it back to where it belonged but it have been lots of false promises because ive been seeing no results

    I guess you need to analyse why your positions dropped - should be relatively easy if you say you ordered 3 services recently before the drop.

    Get a report of what links were build and see if you can find a pattern - maybe you have too many of the same anchor text?

    Based on that you could either remove those links, or build more to try and solve the problem.

    I'm subscribing anyway, and good luck;)

    1 - Analyze your Competitor's ( you should have done that at the beginning )
    2 - Analyze your own Site
    3 - look why you are different !!
    4 - here is your problem. Solve it and get back in the top ;)

    Well there's your answer. You got penalized. Why in the world would you buy 3 packages all at once? Just read some of the negative SEO threads.

    Sorry this happened to you. You need to clean up some of those links and start building relevant links. Did you at least have a buffer that you were building links to?

    Best of luck and consider it a lesson learned.

    .

    Well I will look on positive side of this, Google sometimes pushes you down when it sees sudden increase in backlinks thinking it might be unnatural, now your best bet would be to keep building backlinks so as to make GoogleBot think you are getting links naturally. And yeah as someone said above make sure you do get some relative links this time.

    Ive got an SEO guy to look at my site. He mentioned that my main keywords were overly optimized and I have to add in several keywords like click here, read more, etc.

    I used SEOMoz to look at my backlinks and most of it comes from "Web Design by XXX" . I am thinking to remove it but im working with this seo fella for a month to see the results.
