I am doing some SEO for a company website. We are ranking well for keywords in the first town I did. I have been working on the second city keywords by backlinking and was coming up on the first page for about 13 terms when all of a sudden the site dissappeared completely, but only for that city. For example "Los Angeles, Ca widgets" No 1 in SERPS "Denver, CO widgets" non existent I am using bookmarking, pligg, scuttle, etc and probably handt gone over 5000 links total. If I was penalized why is for one city only or one search term only?? BTW I dont believe in penalities but may change my mind. Any one else have a similar experience?
