None of my keywords show up in the searches although my site is indexed. At the time of the penalty i had most of my targeted keywords in top 10. I'm asking what do you guys think was likely the cause? I dont think it's work trying to save this domain, new one i guess right? The most likely causes: - Bought 175 PBN posts - Bought 30 very expensive and HQ SAPE links (~3$ per link) - Bought 200 manual HQ comments. - Bought 150 LQ bot made nofollow comments for diluting my d0follow links since i had only d0follow but at the time of penalty i still had like 95-98% d0follow, i gues they didnt indexed fast enough. - Made ~150 web2.0 links (on ampedpages, Bcz,edublogs, fc2, iamsport, onesmablog, rediff,unblog.fr, webgarede blog, wikidot, wordpress) using gsa ser (serengines service) that never got indexed even though i added them to an indexer service and more than 7 days have passed since i sent them and from which ~50 were deleted. Maybe these sites reported me to google since i spammed them? - Backlinks speed. I dont know if it was too fast or not, please give your opinion. Also the domain was registered on 11 october so pretty fresh site. - Had another site that was manually penalized, deindexed and message received in webmaster tools (now called Google Search Console). But i dont think this had any impact, i dont think google registered me somehow on the "blacklist of people that will never rank a site again", or did it.....O.O? Also the new site wasnt added in webmaster tools/google search console. - [email protected] niche based website. Even though i dont think this was the cause since there's still a ton of this kind of websites. - Used nulled wordpress theme - Switched a few times back and forth between my old hosting provider and the new since i had issues on both. Onsite SEO was 100% natural, no keyword stuffing or anything like that. Anchor text percentage was also perfectly normal, the biggest percentage was 14% for a keyword. Hopefully my failure can became a case study so please feel free to give your 2 cents.
