    well, here go's the story.

    Last month I have purchased arround 5 micro niche sites on the bst sections here. All my sites were delivered and they looked good etc. Someone recommended me to buy a bookmarking blast to all of my sites, so I bought 500 bookmarks per site, and for 1 site I even bought 1000 bookmarks.

    Unfortunately I did not know about the penguin so much 2 weeks ago, and I didn't use the spin options on the details form. So now there are 500 social bookmarks to each site, all with the same title and description for each site.

    My rankings have dropped tremendously, every site is page 10 or below..

    Any way to fix this? They are micro niche site's so they are not hard to rank first page at all

    thanks

    It's probably a google dance. I wouldn't panic yet.

    As far as using spinning titles and descriptions for bookmarking, it's not necessary. Spinning them, is unnatural. When you naturally bookmark a page, it extracts the title from the title tag and grabs a snippet on the content, usually the 1st paragraph. You want to replicate that.

    Anyone that says it has to be spun, is wrong, it doesn't.

    Look at the way Facebook shares links, they all use the title of the article and a snippet of the content.

    Ouch. And you should be spinning everything. Don't listen to any noob that tells you different. You need to make sure you vary your anchor text and your descriptions if you want to make sure that your site stays up for the long haul.

    Yeah so how could I get my rankings back? Spend well over 400$ on these sites and its kind of a waste if they end up on page 10 haha

    Bookmarks are extremely weak links. By the timeline you described, your loss in ranks may be more to do with being dropped from the honeymoon period (fresh content temporarily rises to the top) and to where your site should rank at.

    Get some better quality links and your ranks will likely improve.

    Go to Yahoo, CNN or any other popular website and bookmark their page. What happens? It extracts the SAME title and description over and over. That is natural. Spinning is not.

    I think the main problem here is the lac of link diversity. Bookmark sites are alright, but it doesn't really look normal if you have 500 bookmark links and not a single other type of link.

    Seriously tho, I don't think you need to panic just yet. I'm with the other guys here who think that social bookmarks shoudl not really hurt you that much, at least by themselves.

    I had the same problem. I bought 600 social bookmarking blast to a new MNS and soon it dropped its ranking from page 4 to nowhere; I didn't build any more backlinks but 3 weeks later it came back to its previous position and now it's dancing between page 2 & 3 so I think you should wait.

    I don't really understand bookmarking sometimes. I had 15 MNS that I tried different link building on. I sent 600 bookmarks to one of my sites and when penguin hit, all 15 of my sites were no where to be found. Months later, the site I sent 600 bookmarks to was the only one that came back on page 1 and its holding strong. (These were my unimportant sites so I wasn't really backlinking any of them aside from a few blasts now and then)

    Build other types of links. Wiki links, manual high quality blog commenting, some social signals, press releases, some manual decent quality web 2.0s etc.

    Follow different strategies with different websites, see the one which works best for you and replicate it to the other websites.

    A service I'd highly recommend is linkpushing by a member here named BassTrackerBoats. It bumped me up real nice. I'd post the ranking graphs but I can't post images yet.

    Spun articles aren't for humans to read, they're for search engines.

    If i were you, i would continue building links (different types then social bookmarks obviously..) and use a shit load of different anchor texts! If you have used 1 over and over, now use raw url, mydomain.com, click here... I would use raw url and mydomain.com the most.

    Most new sites in the first couple of week or day will rank highly but thats not your actual ranking

    Like some other have say its the honeymoon stage it will eventually drop

    Time to do some work buddy
