    1 keyword ( 18k exact searches ) dropped 1st. to 11st.
    2 keyword ( 60k exact searches ) dropped 1st. to 9st.

    The things which I was doing ( try to figure out yourself how to implement it ) :
    1. Avg. time on site raised 3 min. to 7 min.
    2. Returning visitors raised 35% to 65%
    3. Goals ( fake ) raised 6 times.
    4. Google +1 extremely high on my site. Try to be very creative one here...some small hit is that if you click on it then it changes the colour ;) Those one who knows my website can check it out there ( do not PM to me )
    If you think to buy fake G+1 service then that's probably the most stupid things which to do. G+1 clicks have to be real ones and much higher than your competitors have.
    5. Replied to unnatural links message on Webmaster ( I just replied that I can't understand what is the problem about my links)
    6. Stopped my link buildings ( I was using BHW user jstover77 links which is very good service )

    Now my both keywords are 2st. ones. Today will add my site on Yahoo Directory and then pretty sure that will be 1st. one again.

    Hope that helps to get back your rankings.

    Anywhere in the world building WP sites.
    Now did you say G+1 can't be faked but goals (GA, I presume) can?

    Seems like nowadays, it's more about interaction, retention and conversion... besides on and off-page optimization.

    You can fake G+1's but it's very stupid thing which to do. It have to be natural.

    Yes, at the moment no backlinkings at all because don't know which stuff is good to use. I think that after yahoo directory I am 1st. position again and probably after 1 month or so there's some solid linking services which is good to use. I am very careful when using some backlinking services.

    I have been thinking how to raise time on site/lower bounce rate/raise returning visitors for few months. And I don't mean any white hat methods like good content or anything like that, I mean some type of blackhat automation for example. If anyone could point me into right direction that would be great :)

    G+1 can't be faked? But I saw some one to offer g+1 for some bucks. Though I was not sure to have it. But I would not take it now.

    set up your goals in GA, hire someone to daily make some clicks on your links and that's it.

    Sure it can be faked but I was meaning that it's not worth to do like this. Real G+1 gives good results.

    I think it was more likely a Google Dance than a hit by "Penguin". All of the things you did are basically worthless imho. For the record losing a couple positions isn't exactly a "hit" by an algorithm update. If we were talking -50 , -100, keyword de-indexing / re-indexing than I would believe you were hit by Panda/Penguin. -10 or so is a joke.
