    Hello,

    Well I have 4 months old website with about 100 original and quality articles (750-1250 words) and I had a lot of keywords on #1 position in serp (about 20 keywords) - but in last 5 days I lose all my rankings and now all my keywords are 10-30 position in serp. Well is that google dance or I should create new website ? Thanks for help

    From what I understand, you created a site, added sufficient content and ranked 20 of your keywords without any backlink. Don't expect it to last long without link building, any update will reverse it.

    Oh no, Matt cutt's team has become so powerful that even he cannot rank anymore :puppy_dog

    What will you do with all your Payday Loan websites Mr Cutts!?

    On a serious note, give it a few days to settle down, I am also experiencing some pretty erratic movements with my rankings, mostly downwards. Just let 'em dance

    no I have serious linkbuilding with really great social presence (a lot of contextual backlinks, social signals etc.) and I ranked with this linkbuilding 20 keywords, now all rankings are gone.

    I think you should focus on more quality backlinks. Maybe you can get your rank back, I'm not SEO guru.

    Give it a few days before you assume it's a penalty.

    Like I said, my rankings have dropped too. Over the last 5 or so days there have been countless threads on ranks dropping, just wait and see if they come back first.

    Sorry you had a sudden drop. You said you got all the keywords to #1 with backlinking etc....after they ranked did you cut the linkbuilding out or carry on?

    it happen right now to my site as well (4 month nearly old), although I work eager on BL since a week, drop is decent so far!!
    I would say don't panic for now,up and downs are normal, think of every new site how comes published every day. make sure everything on your page is nice 'N sexy :)

    Hmm, are you building to a pattern (i.e. X blog comments per week, X social shares, X forum profiles) or is it more naturalised?

    As you've suddenly lost rank for all keywords at once, it's looking like you may have been penalised. Add more site pages for related keywords and keep going.

    I had the same thing happen with my websites. I had great rankings for over a year and a half and then since June my rankings have steadily been on the decline.

    One thing that has help is adding the rel=author tag to all of your posts.
