    Hi there. After using for link diversity one service from the market(with good reviews), ranking of my website homepage went to nowhere(internal pages remained on their positions). He built 200 links (low quality) all in the same day, and in the next day ranking dropped. I see no manual penalties in WMT, and i havent been building links for 2 weeks before the order, so i think the reason is that service. I asked him to delete links, but after week ranking hasnt back. What me to do to restore ranking?

    Build more good links and you can disavow the 200 links if you think they are bad.

    it's not necessary a penalty, rank drop or disappear can be a good thing, because they will come back in a few days and might even gain higher rank.

    just like asap1 said, keep on building more links with quality. wait and see for a couple of days.

    Same thing happened to us before. Don't take any pressure. Just be cool. This may be Google dance.

    Three wrong things I see from this, whether it's google dance or not..

    You built 200 links on the same day, that are low quality to a page that doesn't have an already normal backlinking routine..

    Although the low quality wouldn't matter too much, even if the rankings go back up.. don't do that again.. If you were building constant links to that page, in a normal looking way depending how authoritative your site is then go back to building the same amount or a bit higher.

    I'd understand a big authority site getting 200 links to the same page in one day, but I'm definitely guessing that isn't the case with your site.

    Just be careful.

    I added a site-wide from a good related blog to second-tier page (about 500 links) and that silo pretty much fell off for two months. It bounced back. The best thing to do is nothing, let level heads prevail and exercise patience. It could've hurt, it might help. In my case it hurt in the short term and I saw a mild increase in the long run. I'll say this, I'd never add random 200 links to my site just like that. In fact outside of that test I ran on the second tier page, my site only has 400 links total most of which are from a high quality 301 domain. The remainder of those links have been built slowly. But I'm the tortoise I guess in this race. Even with that test I researched the domain, its history, and its inbound links before getting that link. I likely won't try it again, which is why I tested it on single silo so I could 404 that entire silo and rebuild it under a new url if needed.

    When building links, always drip feed. Let the ranking settle for a week and start building links again from there.

    Disavow alone may not help. You better remove as much as possible. Disavow the rest.

    The best thing what always one should do who creating links,is going with DRIP-FEED which is the only solution to go upwords.

    What type of links were these? Also what type of anchors did you used? If all of them were money anchors, then that might be the problem.
