    After my site effected by google penguin, I have been analyzing everything to see whats going wrong with my website. I have made correct some issues like remove hidden text created by one wordpress plugin, add content on homepage without doing over optimizing the keywords etc. etc. I do not thing that backlink is the reason of my ranking down, as I did not do much link building work for my site.

    My site is an online gaming site. When I add a new game, the game page index instantly and also I get rank on first page for some long tail keywords without doing any linkbuilding, but after 2-3 days ranking down, even do not see within 100. It is happening since the day my site effected by penguin. Even I lost all the good rankings of previous game pages.

    Now after some days, some of the game pages start de-indexing from google. I am tired by analyzing the wrong side of my side. Till now can not identify the issues.

    Guys wil you please help me? I will greatly thankful to you.

    Well first of all, I don't think so this 'penguin' update is working as intended. Just as an example, I have followed their guide lines and the automation provides fresh legitimate content, still my site is bouncing like hell. Sites what truly are a lot more low quality, ranks better. I still see one site appearing multiple times on on pages 1-3. Big G has failed with this update.

    It seems like your site is being penalized by google. Remove all things that violates guidelines, wait some time and your only hope is to supply reconsideration request. I don't think so there's much more you can do. I am almost sure if you already have supplied reconsideration request and violated again their guidelines, no wonder if de-indexing occurs.

    Do you have some kind of "calendar of events" plugin? I saw one site that was deindexed because it had 90,000 pages created by some plugin, one for each day of the week until around the year 2300 AD. Each page was exactly alike, except for the date and day of the week "Thursday, November 23rd, 2257"

    Good idea. It was some anonymous site on Google Products Forum that we were looking at just for conversational/personal development purposes. We never actually saw the plugin; that part is just a theory. What we saw were (literally) 90,000 copies of almost the exact same page. Guaranteed to get someone deindexed.

    First thing, run an on page SEO report. You might have a lot of bad links. This was a problem we found with a site that had a similar problem. Also, put it in Google Webmaster tools and see what they report.

    Hi thanks for your kind reply. I want to inform you that I have very few backlinks somehow 89 total backlinks and I never tried to build bad backlink for my site, so I do not thing this is due to bad link. In google webmaster tool, I can not identify anything wrong in my site.
