    I have one very weird situation. I created a brand new website exactly 1 month ago, created perfect SILO structure, unique hand written content, articles with 700+ words. I started building PR1-PR7 SAPE links to this site and site started to rank for medium competitive keywords after few days. I was facing google dance, but rankings were growing steadily every day. Then came Google Panda 3.0 update and rankings gone crazy. I dropped for 30 positions for almost all keywords. After few days, my rankings came back to normal, but this morning a website faced big drop in rankings, almost all keywords went out of 300, and they back to top 100 for some time, and gone out of 300 again, etc.

    Since day 1 i was building around 100 SAPE backlinks every day, highly diversified anchor texts.

    Important thing: Google Webmaster Tools shows that I have 374 "Links to Your Site", and when I check these backlinks, I can see that Google was discovering backlinks every day up to 16th May when is last discovered backlink. I know that it shouldn't be like that because I have built backlinks also after 16th May. Moreover, I have built around 1400 SAPE backlinks, but Google shows only 374. Is it possible that Google did not update that list since 16th May or what? Or Google just ignored almost 75% of my backlinks and will not take them to calculate rankings?

    Just to mention one more important thing, rankings gone crazy this morning, but yesterday I started GSA project where I am building quality tier 2 backlinks to all my recently built SAPE links. Also, I have sent all these tier 2 backlinks to indexification. (I did NOT sent SAPE backlinks to any indexing service.) This way I want to force Google to recognize and take into consideration all my SAPE backlinks.

    Question is why is all that happening? Is it possible that I am facing that big drops because of google dance? Or some big google update is knocking on the door?
    I have really no idea why is all that happening because I have finished building SAPE links 10 days ago. Some people say that this is normal and website will come back even stronger after that, but it is hard to belive that I am facing that high drops in rankings.

    Because 1 month site + "100 SAPE backlinks every day" = SURE PENALTY

    It is not penalized I am pretty sure. Also, I don't have any warnings on Google Webmaster Tools.
    I did similar thing to my other site + a lot of blog comments, forum and article backlinks and this site could not rank for a 2 months, and then this site appeared on #8 on Google for medium competitive keyword.

    I want to ask is it possible that tier 2 links "activated" a lot of unrecognized SAPE links and cause big drops (google dance)?

    Yeah... agreed with bartosimpsonio.

    When I was using SAPE, it was painfully obvious just by looking at ahrefs that I was being blackhat.

    The majority of the sites in your backlink portfolio will be from spammy looking .ru domains.

    I bet you weren't being as careful as you think.

    Yeah - a brand new site getting 100 sape backlinks everyday does not seem too natural.

    Trust me, a guy who built these SAPE links made it perfectly, I have max 30% of .ru domain, other domains are .info, .net, .com, .de, .co.in, etc.

    Ahrefs crawlers are blocked and Ahrefs shows only 4 backlinks, but in general any anchor text does not exceed 10% on my website.


    What about these 374 links shown on Webmaster Tools? Is that data old or google really discovered my last backlink on 16th May?

    I'm not an expert when it comes to SAPE links, but 30% .ru domains is definitely a high percentage for any backlink profile.
