Is this a penalty? How would you know without GWT?

    I just had a newer site that was climbing up slowly and was around 60 for all its keywords. All of a sudden they dropped back to 100, is this just a dance or penalty? How would I know? A month ago someone blasted 200 blog comments at my blog. Only links showing, they said it would be safe as it was manual and part of a more diverse package? What is going on?

    Impossible to say. Need to know what kind of package you ordered and how lengthy driptime it has.

    GWT only show whether manual action taken or not. If there's a manual penalty, the particular url will not be found on google. I think, your site will be in dance or just affected by algorithmic update.
