    Hey guys,

    So 1 hour ago I checked my serps on serpbook and got this surprise:

    [​IMG]

    And first thought was to go to GWT and found no messages at all:

    [​IMG]

    So, what do you think? Mega slap or mega dance? xD

    My site was dancing on first page for the first 7 spots and then this occurs lol

    What do you think?

    thats more like mega slap, it happens sometimes after you build some backlinks that 1-2 keywords vanish and they come back stronger but when they all vanish its not a good sign , wait and see if they come back . Good luck

    My 5-month old domain seems got slapped too.
    How old is your site?
    Anyway, I am planning to disavow all the links and wait 1 week to see any recovery.
    If ranking still gone, then just start a new site again.

    90% of the time Google never sends a message.

    And this is precisely what I was talking about dude! The type of site you had even if you had all whitehat links a manual review would still take it down.

    You see what I mean now? Your strategy NEEDS to change or you'll NEVER be able to scale it.

    Pretty soon I'll have your fanpage ranking and that will motivate you to listen to me. :p Because that fan page will stay around forever (as long as backlinks are periodically maintained) and regardless of where your site ranks it will still get traffic. Thats called buffering / diversifying / securing your funnel, and its fundamentally the most important part of IM.

    Anyway, we got to talk man. I see this as a blessing in disguise. And a few months from now you're gonna look back and realize this was the best thing that could have happened to you.

    I will pm you tomorrow so you never have to deal with this type of shit again.

    -SB

    Like others said, most of the time you don't get a message in GWT

    You got bitch slapped for sure. Back to the drawing board.

    One of my sites got hit today, probably same time with OP's site. The homepage was ranking in page 1 for few KWs, now gone. Inner pages still ranking at page 8-10. Previously i purchased a SAPE pack for this site, but the links were removed 2 months ago so i don't think those old, deleted SAPE links cause this drop. Few days ago i tweaked my onsite SEO, increased keyword density, ranking was improved a little bit, but now they are all gone?

    What was your link building strategy for your site, OP? If you don't mind, we can PM the sites to each other to see what's is behind or this update :)

    Get it straight people. Building links is against Google's ToS. I don't care if it is the cleanest web 2.0 or whatever the fuck you want. Before building any links make sure to have a shit load of traffic... likely you won't need any links but at that time it will be seen as natural.

    Its fine, I still build links to different domains, but just keep in mind that you can be slapped at any point.

    One of my site was also hit today. Was ranking page 1 for most of keywords for several months now.
    Had some shitty links in a very little quantity (less than 100 backlinks) but still got it.
    Don't know if I should disavow or just take my content and re-build the site.

    Also, why is that ?

    What kind of links you built for that site? And how about your keyword density for your slapped site ? I suspect this is the reason of this update, i see few more sites have same situation as mine.

    Some links I probably bought here and made the mistake of pointing them towards my website at that time. Well, I knew it was going to be hit one day cause of them, was stupid of me.
    Not really working on this website these past months, don't remember KW density but should be something 1-3% I guess.

    I will follow your lead bro!
    I really want to make money and there's nothing better than following the people that are already doing it big time! :)

    Interesting, Ill send you a PM.

    Interesting and oddly enough probably that layout change was responsible, I can't see what else it could be.

    My site has a slider and looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    Interesting. I think I will have to wait and see what happens.

    =========================================

    What I think caused this drop:

    > I stopped building links that week i took off and then resumed
    > First weeks of the site I was using GA but then early this year I changed to statcounter
    > The tags in WP made duplicate content, but I deleted them some 6-7 days ago for this reason
    > The slider as a result of that layout algo change

    From that being said, all the first 3 problems were taken care of except the slider, which I just removed. Will see what happens.

    Also, Im not exactly depressed as I would expect to be as I almost got this silo site finished and it might become my new golden egg :eek:
