My ranking have taken a nose dive. I don't know what's going on. I don't know if it's a google slap or what exactly is going on. This particular site is not an auto blog and I didn't use any black hat methods to rank it. There was around 20 percent unique content with around 500 post. I went from 4k visitors a day to 800. When I google site:mysite.com everything seems to be indexed. However when I google my my domian with out the extention (mydomain) I am in position 8 on the first page when it used to be #1. when I copy a unique sentence from my blog and search it on google it doesn't show up at all. It should appear #1 but now it lost in the search engine. Some pages do show up when I copy/paste the sentence on google but some don't show up at all. My main keyword was #1 for 2 years, now it is #7 on first page. I am really confused as all of my keywords have dropped badly. I am sending in reconsideration to google. it's been 3 long days now.. My question do you think I got a google penalty? Should I keep adding new unique content or start a brand new site? I am really at a lost right now and I am tired of waiting. What should I do to reverse this drop in traffic. I am considering dumping the site and start a new one or should I press on?
