    i have a site in a gaming niche. i have not been deindexed. i had about 14 keywords that i wanted to target and i was ranking for at least 9 of them with spots under 50. i've been sending traffic to the site using a program i found on fiverr. it generated a lot of traffic (to bring down my alexa score) and now I see that I'm not longer ranking for any of my keywords. i have also been buying +1s for my google plus page (not my website). could this have caused an issue? ive been checking my rankings on serpbooks. i also was making backlinks on a popular blog and then they basically banned my URL. could the admin have done something to my site?

    any help would be appreciated.

    "sending traffic with a program on Fiverr........" that doesn't sound good

    Agreed. This probably raised some red flags. Best just sticking to traditional traffic generation methods!

    Don't send fake traffic and dont send +1s. Send all the facebook likes and twitter followers you want but I wouldn't play around with the +1 system.
