    Has Google changed something?

    I used to rank on page 3-5 for a major two word keyword but now I'm not ranked for that keyword at all.

    I still rank for some of the 3 word keyword phrases but not for 2 word keyword phrase.

    Is there a way to see if your IP is blacklisted or in trouble?

    Did Google change their link rules? i.e. removing forum signatures or forum links?

    Do some research into the other websites that took your position. If you're leaving a site alone without adding fresh content, it's likely Google replaced it with a website they see more valuable. Do a search on Wikipedia (can't post links) for Google Panda and look into it more, it should provide some insight as to what happened.

    I just found out...

    I just recently signed up for buildmyrank and Google deindexed (removed) anyone who used their service.

    I only posted 5-10 links with BMR and my site is only penalized for the most competitive keyword (one with two words.) The less competitive keywords I'm still ok.

    Someone said Google issued a -50 punishment, although I'm not sure what that is.

    They talk about it here. Thanks for the quick responses to my plea for help. :)

    Here's the info about buildmyrank getting black listed.

    Search titles on this board for

    build rank deindexed

    to read the full story.

    not so affected to my site, but looks like google doesn't counts some additional backlinks nowadays.
