    Hi,

    I created a amazon review site 2 months ago and achieve #1 ranking for its main keyword in just one month using www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/buy-sell-services/504092-sherlock-hacks-google-21-link-building-episodes-8-types-social-media-included.html and my own high pr blog networks.

    The site was getting around 400 visitors per day and making a decent money for me. It also ranked for many long tail keywords. Then the recent update by Google came 4 -5 days ago. All my ranking gone except the main keyword. It still ranked #1. The secondary keyword went from #2 to #9 then increase to #6 today.

    The traffic went from 400 per day to 150 per day and 80 - 90 out of 150 are from search engines.

    Here iare my rankings from Serpbook

    What should I do now?

    I have 3 plans in my head:

    1) Do a 301 redirect to a new domain
    2) Deindex the site completely and use the content on a new fresh site.
    3) Try to fix the site and recover the ranking ...

    Thanks for your support!

    It doesn't seem like you've been slapped by G that bad, honestly I think in your case a fresh site might not be necessary, just try fix it :)

    Count yourself lucky, people have been hit harder than #2 to #6! :)

    Getting a new site is out of the question, you are still visibly on top of the SERP. I just you examine the link messing up your campaign and eliminate them, alternatively build more quality links and get on number one. A lot of people still assume SEO is cheap but it isn't anymore, gone are the days you blast with SB, Senuke X and you rank on #1.

    Maybe some of your links get removed/deindexed by Google that caused little drop on ranking....

    Why not build more quality links to your site?

    You can use google disavow tool to remove links pointing your long tail keywords. Then you can start building backlinks for those.
    There is no need of going for another site as it takes more time and money.

    I don't know what you expected with BH SEO. BH SEO is to get great results fast and to get money while you're on the top of the Google page 1. Now that you went down just do the same thing you did before and that's it.

    I would 301 redirect to a new domain. I am pretty sure you will get your rankings back. Done that with 3 sites of mine with 100% success rate :)

    Your site still seems to be doing good as per the SERP, so ideally there is no need for a new domain for your site. You should try fixing this site, try getting more quality backlinks and removing few old ones which are linked to lower PR pages. And may be google might have deindexed your pages, so try and fix the site and wait for few weeks, it should recover the ranking.
