Hey, Just a little report of what is happening to me these days. It could helps some to rank, confirm the thoughts of others, and makes me ridiculous for the Gurus Panda came in my country a few days ago and i already noticed some drastic drops in ranking. (i have already cried about that on another topic). Basically i lost 98% of my traffic because of my referrers vanishing and search engines falling. Ok. Nothing very amazing there. But i used to link this blog which is on anoher host to my new money site. I've put an ad in the sidebar and a link in the footer. According to webmaster tools, i had 780 backlinks from this blog among thousands of pages. For 3 weeks i've tried to rank for a peculiar KW and i was page 36-37. Well today, G makes disappear most of these backlinks in displaying 9 only over the 780 mentioned above. Since then, i won 10 pages and i'm now on page 26. If this is well known by you guys, if you could drop me an explanation because i have another business site which has 14k backlinks from one single website , so i figured that i should remove it from the link exchange ? Why these backlinks hurted me this badly ?
