Well, it had to happen to me eventually, haha. I was one of the top 3 results in Google for pretty much anything I put on my blog. If I put it there, it went up. Granted, it is all related to the same niche, but still a pretty solid result. However, as of 2 days ago...completely gone. The only way I can see my site in the SERPs is using the boolean operator site:mydomain.com I'm dead first in both Bing & Yahoo right now. I'm getting about 1,400 to 1,600 uniques a day, without Google traffic. I'm still building backlinks, and my traffic has actually gone up because as I was dropped to page five thousand in Google, my rankings went through the roof on Yahoo & Bing (I have no idea why). I'll update this thread daily with any updates as to what happens. I'd love to see my site come back on Google, that would make my year as I'd be getting a ridiculous amount of UV's a day (ridiculous for me anyway). Here are some stats on my site: Yahoo Site Explorer Backlinks: Just about 4,000 sitewide Google Backlinks According to Webmaster tools: 1,640 I did my link building via some manual bookmarking, bookmark demon, scrapebox, a couple of proprietary bots I've made for myself and a couple of other ways (pretty much all blackhat link building).
