    Hi all, need you help and insight. I put a lot of work into a weight loss site, i did well and ranked #1 and #2 for my phrases

    Today i see i am blown away in terms of ranks, my site is not ranked anywhere

    however, i do see that i am still indexed.

    adsense account still good.

    What did i do wrong?

    I was very agressive with link building and build like 3000 links in a short period of time

    Then I stopped, because i achieved my rank.

    So my best guess is that I got audited somehow and then boom gone. Oh yeah this is brand new site i started it 6 months ago.

    So is it the link velocity that screwed me, or the blatant fact that i was a brand new site ranking for #1 term that messed me up? In what way was i too greedy?

    I didn't really make money off this so i don't care, however i want to build more sites and am now worried i will have the same problems. What can i do to not have all my work blow up and get taken away?

    Should i am for less? not be agressive? build up slowly? any insight would be helpful thanks.

    Where did you get these links from? Was it indexed for all of those 6 months?

    i am dancing? i've never seen this though, b/c not only do i not rank for my keywords i only rank for site name.

    i wrote all unique content myself. when i take a random sentence and search that my site is no where, but douce bags that scrape my content show up.

    I was in the same boat with my site but was making some decent cash and then like a idiot i used fiverr to buy a xrumer blast and i haven't recovered since. I've been building links and bing likes em but G isn't so far so we'll see in time.

    I have the absolutely same problem with my site too. After 3 months building quality links it's still in the same place.

    Hoping that your site is only dancing and soon to get back.

    You should have continued building links naturally to maintain your position. Just keep building links for now at a consistent rate and you'll get out of the sandbox soon.

    Same happened to my microniche websites... In the end they all got their rankings back or in most cases they ranked even better. I have a different problem. My main kw ranked #2 for about 2 months and two days ago googled slapped me (im still indexed) even tho im not sure why. I'll do a backlink pyramid on it and hopefully ill get on #2 or even #1 in a month or two :D. Anyway you got nothing to worry about, google loves to dance with new websites its just what people do is they stop doing backlinks when google starts to dance which is actually wrong as far as i had chance to read on senukex forums :).

    Good luck with your site ;)

    Exactly what I did 3 days ago.

    My 1 month old site went from top 6 for 10 keywords to top 300... completely fucked it up.

    Will it ever recover?

    I know one thing for sure though, I wont be paying a retard again.

    Your site may be doing a Google Dance as mentioned before.

    A bunch of your links might have been devalued, or your link diversity may be slanted in the wrong way.

    If you pinged those 3000 links in one week from the same ip address, it could have caused it.

    But as previously mentioned, it will come back, and those aggressive links will count FOR you someday.

    Im curious how long it takes a site to recover from the dance.... My site dropped from 7th to 29th, its at 28th now but its been about a week since the drop. Just curious how long until I see it come back up.

    Haha just stop being a retard yourself and next time use the big blasts on your second tier sites :p

    3 days is nothing to make drama about, that's what happens almost with every site. It will recover sooner or later, just don't stop building links now.

    Good luck mate.

    I had the same problem. I ranked well for a few months, did a lot of link building, then my site went into a 2 month+ dance. I wasn't even showing up when I searched for my exact domain name. I didn't do anything in particular to get it back; I may have done a couple of link pushes which I doubt did too much in the grand scheme.

    Google always seems to fucking do this. What I don't get though is it doesn't (or in a small test) do it to my competitor sites (when I try). How do they know it's you doing it? Or has anyone tested blasting successfully a competitor? I blasted some links at a site that was previously in goggles sandbox, only for it to come out and sit on 500 uv per day for god damn ever so i blasted it again and boing back in fatt gutts sandbox crap. There's no name for it, other than 'dance' or 'sandbox' time its in it is also unknown. Might get sent to India where they have 10 million click monkeys looking at spam reports.

    What do you mean by the big blasts on your second tier sites? you mean on the longtail keyword pages?

    he means blast thousands of blog comments to the web 2.0s (blogs with articles pointing to your money site) instead of the money site.

    I guess I learned the hard way... but on the bright side at least I can now positively verify that blasting a 3 week old domain with 2300 indexed backlinks fucks it up.

    Now all I do is crack out those blue suede shoes and boogy until the musci stops.
