    Hi Guys,

    Since last 2-3 days my ranking dropped to 20-30 positions, earlier they were growing & used to be on 2nd page. I took 10 PBN links this week & till Wednesdayay keywords were dancing.

    But now their ranking is dropping,I've checked GWT there no message.

    What should I do?

    Thanks

    Just part of the G dance. Don't panic. If they penalize your site, they'll let you know via WMTs.

    Just wait for a few more weeks and also slow down on your link building process.

    Great. Though I've made few comments to make anchor ratio natural. I am getting them index naturally.

    How old is your site? How many links? You are not going to get penalised off 10 PBN links.

    If very new, you may have experienced the "Google Honeymoon Period". However you do not see it much these days.

    Maybe dancing, but from 90% of my experience, Google dance is not over a few days. But then again,things change in SEO. Always have, always will. Personally I would back the PBN links up with a bit of filth. But it is not my site, and I tend not to care about my sites either. Love that site? Try looking into the on page SEO a bit deeper.

    No one could give you real advice without looking at the site. Could be a number of issues

    You don't any message from GWT then it should be a google dance. See, Google dance is happen every time of Adding or remove the links. Have you check the PBN's ? I think the link which you build is low quality

    I think your website is not penalized if you have not recieved any email from GWT. So be cool and try to build links in more authority sites.Linkbuilding in authority sites may help you to boost your traffic again.

    Google dance will cause the change in ranking and it will calm down afterwards. So, don't get panic.
    Some backlinks cause bad effects on your money site. Try to build backlinks in your own language of your site. If not means it takes more time to get rank.
    Check the backlink PBN site metrics before use it.
