    Hey so i was curious if anyone had any experiance with anything like this or anyone knows anything at all as to why this has happened to me.

    I own several websites that all seem fine at the moment but one of them 'my biggest one' is purely ranking on content I have made next to no backlinks on it and after just checking i have not been spammed or anything like that, the content is all 100% unique and its the whitest of whitehat sites. I have done everything that Mr.Cutts says a website developer should do but i have just noticed with my rank tracker that i have keywords that where 9-20th position just drop by 400~ positions around 30-40 keywords have had this same affect some dropping by 60 some dropping off totally there are still a few hundered that have not moved at all.

    This site has been around for a little over 2 years and through all algo updates this site has actually instantly increased in rankings every time. Where as the ones that i have built some links on via blackhat methods have dropped/stayed the same. I am not sure what is going on with this site, any help would be great.

    Thanks!

    Could just be an algorithm update and Google is in the process of reshuffling rankings. Give it a little time. Many times sites will pop back in to similar rankings after a couple of days to a couple of weeks.

    The first page results in my niche have had a huge change up but I did not experience as much as a drop as you. My site was also white hat.

    If you're sure that your site is not penalized and you have unique content, then you may try checking if your keywords are overoptimized. Also, with the several algo updates, it could also be a Google dance. If it is, then you should learn how to groove with it. Continue on adding good quality content to your site that you update often. Build links slowly and continue building to keep link velocity.

    Join the club :) I decided to put that project in conservation and invest in doing a new one, very similar. Though, I am pretty sure these project will come back at a certain moment.

    This is one of the reasons why I'm very reluctant to go 100% whitehat. Like people said I wouldn't worry about it too much and wait sometime hoping it gets back its rankings. Unless you have overoptimized titles description and so on. But even then I see overoptimized sites rank all the time..
