    HI, i own many websites and most of them i see the same pattern since the Penguin Update the root domain gets nowhere to be found on the serps but the inner pages still are showing.

    Someone see the same pattern? anyone have any tips on how to get my domains ranked again?

    Those sites are deindexed .

    Remove all content from it . Add new 100% unique content in well native english

    And submit your site from again Google Webmasters again .

    I've seen it happen to two of my sites.
    Still in the process of trying to bring them back. I've also started backlinking to the inner pages that seem to ranking.

    Frankly I think this behavior is more panda like. That said, this type of things used to happen long before penguins & pandas and very often it's temporary, after some time the root page gets its rankings back.

    If you already have unique content then go ahead with slow link building to Homepage and inner pages too with huge link diversity

    Go ahead with Contextual Backlinks which are most powerfull and add Social Media which is Penguin Friendly now a days

    stop the BS. your site hasn't been deindexed. If your site were deindexed you wouldn't have seen a single page from it appearing in serps.

    Your homepage is either dancing or has been penalized.

    Blogs comments are useless now a days so dont do that ,

    As in Blog comments there are tons of adults and gambling related links and OBL too much

    So create backlinks where no adult links are placed and low OBL as much as you can

    most likely caused by too many of the same anchor text.

    Perhaps your building links towards your root domain too fast in a short period of time.

    I think this is an interesting point and goes a little way to suggesting that the demotion penalty is not site wide and rather on individual pages or if it is site wide, it effects certain pages more than others. Otherwise it would be relative and the same page would rank in the serps.

    I have noticed the same with my site that has got slapped. For a particular keyword, the homepage use to rank highest and now a relatively new page now does. The homepage still ranks for other keywords so there's nothing wrong with the page, it just doesn't rank very highly because of the demotion penalty caused by penguin

    P.s. I'm not sure why you have got so many weird and completely wrong comments back, i think it is a helpful observation.

    yes but its clearly some kind of penalty because i was ranked 8th, and from 8th to 3rd page even i could understand but to nowhere to be found its a penalty, im worried on how to get it back or what to prevent on future sites so it wont happen again because its happening in all of my sites.

    In most cases it's a demotion penalty. It seems that how much of a penalty depends on how much is wrong with the site. The exact factors aren't known at the moment so how to fix it is pure speculation right now. I would personally play it safe and build high quality links only. I would focus on building anchor text diversity and I would also avoid exact match anchors and focus on longer anchors and even partial match anchors. This will make your link profile look much more natural. They are only observations though and i don't have test evidence of this.
