    ...I use google translated content for my Tier 1 ? For that, I wanna say that the content still makes sense and its not bullshit.
    Since I do it I see that my rankings going down.

    Anyone here who has experience with that?

    I would definitely not recommend using Google translate for tier 1 content. This is, after all, Google's service. They can likely see right through your content to the original article. The translated content is most likely treated the exact same way as duplicate content.

    So if I would deleted this Tier 1 Web 2.0s would I see my ranking increasing / going back to normal? Or would it go even more worse?

    I wouldn't point anything like that directly at my site unless I was just churning and burning. For tier 2+, sure. Check out Kontent Machine, might serve useful to you.

    Well if you were to delete the web2.0s you could see your rankings go either way unfortunately. It would even be tough to say if I were to see the URLs because we don't really know what Google thinks of them. In the long-term you should see better rankings if you have high quality tier 1 links. Deleting the links is the right move if you want this website's rankings to improve and last.

    I personally like using high quality content all the way through the tiers. It is much more tedious but I am hoping it will pay off in the future.

    Mate anything that is unique is OK. The problems comes when you get a manual review. and believe me you will still get kicked in the as* if you use hand written content on tier 1.. really, it looks quite obvious to have all links coming from web2.0's that have further tiered links coming to it...

    Rather than taking down the Tier1 links may be add more content to tier1 preferably spinner content rather than directly using google translated one. Just don't give any trace to google to find out your SEO work. Use spinner, also make your tier1 as a standlone site rather than just 1 post and forgot.

    Okay, I still hope the ranking drop is just a google dance.
    For now, I will start writing content for the tier 1 by myself again. I will see if it will help.
