    Just curious. Looks my ranking drop on one of my sites is right at 30-40 range. Trying to get an idea how long others had to wait.

    Thank you again for your time to read this.

    one of my sites is for approx. 60 keywords on postition 40 - 60 for almost three months, although I'm still building backlinks and adding fresh content regularly.. hope that it'll come out soon cause this site was a huge moneymaker for me...

    Thanks for the link. Another tool in the toolbox (bookmarks).

    Just checked a site of mine that I know has dupe content on it. Came back fine though...

    If anyone else has a URL/program for a penalty checker, please let us know. Thanks.

    How can you find out if your site is penalized (from webmaster tools help):

    Verify that your site ranks for your domain name
    Do a G00gle search for www.[yourdomain].com. If your site doesn't appear in the results, or if it ranks poorly in the results, this is a sign that your site may be penalized for violations of the Webmaster Guidelines. If we find certain problems with your site—for example, malware—we'll let you know via the Message Center. You should also review your site against the Webmaster Guidelines. Once you're sure that any problems have been addressed, submit a reconsideration request.

    Great tool, just checked one of my websites I have high hopes for, the tool says: this website has a severe penalty :-( on the other hand, when I g00gl3 www.[mydomain].com it comes up first together with most of the pages, so I guess it's not that bad... I think the reason for the penalty may be me buying d0-fxxxxx links on fiverr and the fact that this is a brand new domain (well, 3 month old). Keyword is extremly competive, but the site doesn't rank for any combination of the keyword, including very long tail ones. Has a lot of original content, written by me personally and doesn't have any /-\d$en$e, just a handfull of affiliate links in the text, not even banners. I wonder how long it will last - I am building backlinks daily with several anchors, deeplinking etc... I hope my persistence will be rewarded by the big G :)

    On the other hand, I am on page 1 in B|ng for a massive keyword (the one I used as an anchor in fiverr gigs) - had that been G00g|e, I would be a millionaire, but I only get 10-20 visitors frim B|ng...
