    Well, according to my rank tracker, 7 out of the 10 keywords I had ranking in the top 6 pages of Yahoo & Bing just dropped off the face of the planet. I have slowed down on my link building and other various things I do, but not enough for this to happen, right?

    Also, I slowed down MAYBE 2 weeks ago, if that. Can it really go from page 1 to GONE in that quick? Seriously, 3 keywords that I had on the first page... GONE..

    I don't know what happened, everything I do I use with web 2.0, press releases, social bookmarking.. I do have a competitor that's an ex friend that I HIGHLY have concerns with. He is very shady and I know he has done attempted bad link building for a competitor, so I'm nervous he did the same. He always new how to run yahoo ads for our niche even though it's not allowed, but managed to always keep an ad up and would never tell me know, which I respected.. but sucked. Well, yahoo CRACKED down and he can't do it anymore. Ever since that happened, I dropped out of yahoo & bing and he ranked up. It's just weird.

    Anyways, I know Google has 70% of the market and I shouldn't care, but if something shady did that, It needs to stop before it gets worse. Plus, I don't know what to center around SEO wise to even rank in yahoo & bing if I wanted too. For all I know, bing & yahoo SEO probably hurts google rankings.

    Just venting out, this hit hurt. Lost 30% of my traffic. (some google keywords dropped too, some by 1 place and others by 15 pages)
