    I am running a flooring company, our domain has been on google first page for years, we stopped SEO for a while, then it sinks,

    when we tried to get back to SEO, it started to climb up, until second page, then bang....... we got penalized, the SEO people was

    not honest enough to even tell us the truth... damn it... but we were pretty sure it was penalized, then we tried every way to fix it,

    remove the bad links and ask Google to reconsider, it did not work...then we use a new domain, and do the 301 redirect, it works

    for a week, we got plenty of juice over one weekend, then it s DEAD!!! just like the previous site!!

    Penalties are passed when you do a 301 redirect. It usually just takes about a week to go into affect.

    Man, just move on. Start a new site, boost some money into Adwords, until the SEO brings results as before. If you know Adwords well, it can be even cheaper than SEO (although not many people know it that well...)

    Hire someone serious this time for SEO, that's most important.

    Don't get upset just yet.

    Hang on to your domain. Remove the badlinks pointing to your website. Use adwords as it was suggested to you and use facebook too to let people know about your business.

    Good Luck!

    im not sure what you were paying,,and it's not any of my business, but if your struggling for calls start a ppc campaign today. I"m sure the latest updates affected alot of working techniques for aggressive seo.

    who did you hire and how much did you pay?

    What method did they use?

    Im asking b/c it is either they said it was a 100% safe and you did it or you knew it was black hat and did it anyways.

    Don't panic mate i have the same thing. My webshop was complete kicked out of the index with the homepage. But what i did was changed my onpage SEO, stuff like stuffed meta title's not relevant keyword, Removed stuffed keywords from my SEO text, and took and you can consider maybe service like crockservice since he will remove badlinks and give you good links. But don't panic just think and work hard.
    I Hope i gave you some hope.

    You didnt fix the problem all the way.

    Keep removing links or hire someone that knows what they are doing to clean up your link profile.

    Either that or ditch the 301 altogether homey and start over. Your call.

    If its a brick and mortar company then your old domain is probably priceless and you should invest in fixing it.

    I know someone who specializes in lead generation for local businesses like yours. If you are interested, I can send you his contact info. I'm not sure what he charges, but he gets very high quality leads. Where are you based out of?
