    I have been working on a site for roughly 6 months now and I was getting quite a few good results including a top 5 ranking for a term that receives 110k Google searches in the UK and a top 10 ranking for a search term that receives 4,400 UK Google searches. Today though i noticed that the site has dropped out of the rankings. The site comes up when you search for the company name and appears top when you search site:domainname. I have checked my messages in Google Webmaster tools and i haven't had a message saying i have been penalised or anything of that ilk. The last message i got was a month ago saying that there was a rise in site traffic.

    The link strategy i use is exactly the same as i do for all of my clients and noone else has dropped in the rankings. I build a diverse, multi tiered link pyramid for each link cycle. All automation is done on tier 2 via all manually built links. All articles are hand written, and not pinched from anywhere. They are spun to over 80% uniqueness with each paragraph having 2 rewrites and multi level spins in them. I also spin the links so that they don't appear in the same place and don't link to the same page.

    I build web 2.0 links, social bookmarks, blog comments, article links, profile links etc. I also send daily PR Web articles out to the US and run monthly Wowcher deals. I also maintain a constant link velocity.

    I see no reason why i would have be penalised and presume it is just a dance but I would welcome any comments on this. I am use to websites dropping out of the rankings within the first 6 weeks before popping back in a week or two later but not after 6 months...

    It seems to be a normal google dance however try to add more unique content in it and see if it clicks.

    Yeh it seems to be an effect of the new algorithm change. Does anyone know what is mainly effects. My links aren't spammy but i do have a few onsite links that may be construed as spammy
