    About a week or 2 ago my rankings for both my domain and inner pages dropped dramatically. I have been using Scrapebox to build backlinks. Should I just continue to build backlinks with Scrapebox or should I do something else?

    Hopefully it's just Google dancing around or something but I need a little direction here.

    Thanks

    How new or old is the site in question?

    same thing happened to one of my sites. inner page disappeared and is no longer indexed in Google but the website itself is still indexed and my rankings are still high for other pages.

    Definitely was Scrapebox that caused the de-indexing.

    This happened to my inner page, came back a week and a half later on first page though. Google dance seems to work on individual pages rather than sites now...

    Blaming Scrapebox for the deindexing is like a surgeon blaming his scalpel for the botched operation. How did you use the tool and how spammy were you in your efforts? How old is the site?

    My site dropped from 20k unique views => 4k unique views for 20 days recently, but I came back and it's as good as ever.

    I bought the site a few months ago but its age is from 2007.
