That's horrible. I feel you, David; I've been there before! Did you get a manual spam action?
No manual action.
I am hoping that its just because I moved the site to a new URL. but that was is still not showing as indexed. Lets see.....
That might be the reason. When was the move done?
It's not about who you buy from, but what you buy matters.
Around the 19th October (10 days ago). Added new domain as an addon domain in cpanel and pointed it to same directory, then updated the URL of the site in wordpress then set up a 301 wildcard redirect (Again from cpanel) so everything is identical in terms of content. Submited change of domain name request in Google as well.
I did update the theme so that could also have an effect but hopefully not.
New domain is indexed but not ranking anywhere within 100 at the moment.
The old site was also an exact match domain for my main keyword so once again new site might lose out not having that advantage.
Anyway, I will update what happens next.
And I dont think its the backlink profile because I have only built a small number of links and they are all high quality and also with very diverse anchors used for each link.
why you change to new domain?
Couldn't get accepted by a specific affiliate due to copyright infringement. So I didn't really have a choice.
Damn David. I feel the mini heart attack you must have got when you saw this.Been there a few times.
Personally, never done a URL change so don't have any clue how it affects SEO. Something very new to me. I'm curious to know what happens next.
Keep us updated.
Its ok - I have noticed now that the ranks are all starting to pop up in similar positions on the new domain
