    Hi everyone,

    Along with doing affiliate marketing I run a watch enthusiast site paneraicentral.com. For the longest time I used to rank in the top 5 for anything that I would put out Panerai related. Articles would be indexed quickly and rank instantly and it was a good time.

    Flash forward to the end of October. All of a sudden my site dropped in ranking. Everything went from top 5 to rankings between 50-100 or sometimes not even being there. I have racked my brain reading on here and talking to buddies about what could have happened. All of my content is unique which should weigh nicely with google. I do take press releases and reword them with some commentary. I sped up my site a lot and using YSlow and GTMetrix I get great scores.

    What's even weird is that I still rank #1 on certain keywords, for instance PAM785. But then something like PAM616 I don't even rank. So not really sure what to make of it.

    At one point I was trying to start a forum on the site and I left it and didn't go back to it and when I came back I noticed a ton of spam links that I went in and deleted so there are non there anymore. I figure that might have had a negative effect on the site right now. The spam links look like they started in January 2015, much later then October 2014 when I dropped in ranking so not sure if that is the real reason all of this has happened.

    Using webmaster tools I saw some domains that looked weird and put them in the disavow in my webmaster tools. WHen I look in Majestic I see a ton more links and anchor texts that are pharmaceutical related but there are so many domains and posts that are pointing back to my domain I don't know how to do anything about it. It would be so crazy to try and get all of these domains put into my Disavow text.

    I am looking for any help I can get at this point. Why does Webmater tools not show all those backlinks that Majestic shows? What do you guys think caused the drop in the end of October? What would be the best course of action to getting into good graces with google.

    I appreciate any insight that you experts can bring to the table on what I can possibly do.

    Thank you in advance.
