    Yep, that sounds like the problem. If you made a lot of backlinks and are complaining that it didn't 'work' (and I'm assuming by that you mean recover your original ranking position), you probably just made a bunch of low-quality backlinks.
    That, or perhaps you were penalized from your first round of backlinking (assuming that there was one), and you didn't address that penalty before proceeding to build more links.

    It's tough to tell with the limited info you've supplied. Sounds like you've addressed your on-site issues, but you haven't mentioned much about off-site SEO, other than that you 'made [a lot] of backlinks.'

    Did you blast your site with some low quality blog comments, or something of the like? Did you order some Fiverr backlinking gig? Did you diversify your anchor text? Did you add a lot of only one kind of backlink? You need to diversify your backlink profile. Even if you order one high-quality linking service, if they're all, for example, do-follow footer links, you're in bad shape.

    If I hit the nail on the head with anything I mentioned above... PM me to get my PayPal address! :p

    theme updates can fuck-up your sitemap and crawlers will find broken/missing internal links -> bad onpage SEO -> rank drops

    It's most likely related to a poor backlinking strategy. You said you made a lot of backlinks... were these quality links or did you just blast your site with a lot of links?

    If every other thing is fine after the new theme updates, no errors, broken links, on site SEO remains the same then you need time for Google to place you back on your position. If it takes more than 7 to 21days do a top notch backlinks on relevant sites.

    Rankings will drop if you bought links from low quality sites which are not related to your niche, so you need to remove those links and see the results. Changing the theme also causes drop in rankings. Anyway If you PM me your website, then I will analyze and tell you what might be the reason.

    Did you check google webmaster tools? Usually, that's a good place to check for clues as to why your rankings tanked.

    He is telling that he made backlinks after the drop so it has nothing to with the drop. There was a recent change in google algorithm, that could be the reason.

    Also most people get panicked and start to do various stuff which sends google the signal, that the ranking is being manipulated (IN your case you made lots of backlinks after the drop). Instead the linking should have been done the same way as you were doing.

    Just remove the links which you built and add some fresh content and social bookmarks... It may help you to rank back!


    Good Luck!

    Have you tried undoing the changes you made? Coz i dont think, that would be the reason in your case.

    There was some changes in GOOGLE ALGORITHM and many sites were affected on the first week of september. This can be one reason.

    When did you created those backlinks ? Google would obviously take some time to verify those links ( quality and quantity ) and evaluate them. Since you are still in the google SERP it makes sense that you are not penalized by google yet. So, there can be a lot of factors which may have affected. With out checking out your website and analyzing what you did with your site .... no one can answer on that.

    And yeah, the one who can answer the correct reason .. should be MATT CUTTS himself :D

    As long as the content and the backlinks anchor texts is focused around the content in your site it is ok !

    Ranking drops when you change theme is possible but that is temporary as long as you fix and keep site clean it must be back So be patient.

    If you think you messed up with your backlinks, its very though to say you will get back or no unless you can show of your url.
