    My ranking dropped from P1 to P5> for a lot of my keywords and this happened in October 2013. I still haven't been able to figure out the issue, but I know this:
    1. In webmaster tools under Google Index > Content Keywords it looks like this:
    ------1. jpg
    ------2. div
    ------3. src
    ------4. images
    ------5. img
    2. I dropped in the places results as well.
    3. Bing and Yahoo are fine.
    4. I have a good mobile site and haven't done any negative SEO.

    Please pm me if you can help and I will post the final finding on here for other's who are having the same issue.
    Thanks!

    Negative SEO wouldn't effect your site.. My best guess would be you've been penalised sitewide.

    Is there any way for you to spend a couple of minutes talking to me about your thoughts? I could give you some compensation for your time.

    dropping to page 5 usually indicates a manual penalty for unnatural links. install gwt and you'll likely get an email within a few hours.

    Looks like a manual penalty meaning you need to blow the dust off of the disavow tool and get busy.

    Was this a sudden drop or gradual? It is possible that it is a penalty but it's also possible that maybe some of the links you built got removed.

    i think your site is penalized, that's why there is a sudden change in your ranking..:detective
