    hi there and merry christmas all together!

    maybe you have some advice for me: i've started a new project a few weeks ago and got a strong link to get indexed on google. i was ranking for my keyword within 3 weegs on page 1. i added some other links and baaaam - penality. google is very sensitive on new pages with keyword-backlinks right now... so i guess i got into a filter/penality whatsoever. no more page 1 ranking but page 24...

    i tried to remove keywords in backlinks but this seems to be a bit complicated as users also posted links in forums - containing the keyword...

    does anyone have experience if my site will come back soon? is the penality forever? should i add more non-keyword-links (just domain-name/"click here"/...) to adjust the keyword/non-keyword ratio?

    It always happens to a new site. Don't worry about that. Just update your site regularly and build links to your internal pages also.

    This is nothing you have to worrie about, it happens almost every time on new domains.

    But I don't understand why you removed the backlinks? Instead you should build more.

    I stick with:
    - High PR Backlinks to main-site ( also deep-links ) with variations of my keyword.
    - Blasting with Scrapebox + xRumer my Web 2.0 properties, and Social Bookmarking them.

    Continue building links, and sooner or later you will achieve your positions. Stay focues, don't give up. Backlinks won't harm you, and you don't get that easy a penalty.

    If you don't get better positions in at least 2-3 months, then you obviously did something wrong.

    It could be just Google dance... Don't remove your links unless they are coming from crappy sites... Search engine will consider wrong if they don't find it again when come back to crawl site... That's why permanent backlinks are always considered best...

    Also don't blast your main site, make some feeder sites and blast them...

    From what i undrstand, it may get sandboxed but will ome back much stronger...is this a good strategy for a new site. Deliberately get it banned early on to get a running start when you are ready to go?

    great for you that the site came back.but remember next time never to use just target kw phrase as your anchor.mix it up and that is only going to help you to rank for other phrases too besides the target you got in mind.
    May be you can use this tool below to see what your competitors are using as their anchors in the web:

    now, can you guys tell me what the hell with my site!

    1 year old - wordpress based - 200k backlinks - not using xrumer or sb.

    10 days ago,#1 with my primary keyword (50million compete pages), #12 for second keyword, #32 for third keyword, and my posts ranked well on page 1 or 2 with other keywords,

    now, google only get me #1 for my (only) primary keyword to inner page (www.mydomain.com)

    2nd and 3rd keyword gone... all pages gone.....

    i think google not ban my site, i still can find all my pages using site:mydomain.com

    but the serps aren't good...

    1200 daily organic visitors , now only 200 daily visitors from google!

    I stick with Scrapebox. More and more backlinks; now and then I change my metatags and get to dance with G. , but after a while rank is there.
